We try to do that for stories – we try to say, ‘OK, here’s the message, here’s the theme, here’s the good people and the bad.’ Life is not nearly like that.

Stephen Henderson
All of my close friends are emotional train wrecks. This is what makes our lives interesting – constantly doubting ourselves, worrying, wondering if we’ve made a mistake. Could we have done better? Are we good people? Are we bad people?

The way you get your script to the right people is that you put it in an envelope. It’s easy. The difficult bit is writing something that is so good people will take a punt on a brand new writer.

I was spawned by some pretty good people in this business – Mr. Astaire, Mr. Tracy. They stopped and took their time to talk to people.

Robert Wagner
You know, I think a lot of times what happens when we as actors know we’re playing a bad guy is we get into bad guy mode. You know what, man? In real life, bad people do good things too and good people do bad things. So you don’t necessarily have to be the stereotypical bad guy to still do bad things.

If you’re let go from Celtic, the club you support, and go to Queen‘s Park, people think it’s a disaster. I don’t think I cried, but I was very upset. As a young boy, your dream has been taken away. But I had good people around me, and it was probably the best thing that happened.

I was very involved in back of the house, and finding good people is by far the hardest thing. So, when you’re living in a place like New York or San Francisco, where the cost of living is so high, finding great people is very hard. Even finding remotely reliable people.

I will not say I would not serve if the good people were imprudent enough to elect me.

I have no love for those who consider themselves ‘good people’ but stand idly by as the world crumbles around them. It’s not enough to personally not do damage. If you’re present as someone else destroys what’s around you and you do nothing, you helped them.

Wine and cheese are ageless companions, like aspirin and aches, or June and moon, or good people and noble ventures.

M F K Fisher
Most Muslim charities are run by good people.

William Shawcross
My four sons all knew I was a Jew, but they were allowed to be whatever they wanted to be. The only thing important to me was that they be good people who help other people, because all religion should try to make you a better person and a more caring person. Whenever religion does that for you, it’s a good religion.

It’s important that I work with good people.

I love helping out good people who are doing good things.

J R Martinez
I think the press are good people; I think they’re educated people.

When you have the most stable team in the garage from a financial standpoint and manufacturer standpoint, that attracts good people.

I feel like life is much greater than a hero or a villain: there’s good people that sometimes make mistakes.

I think as soon as we start thinking of ourselves as good people, that’s when we start letting ourselves off the hook which is bad. I think we should always be trying to be better but that doesn’t mean we want to be good.

I don’t believe in good people and bad people.

It should not be this difficult for people of good will, people with experience, to offer it in service to their country. There are too many good people that have found it impossible and I simply didn’t want to be one of them.

I try to remind people that there are a lot of good people, all colors. Then there’s some bad ones, too. But there’s a lot of good people who really care.

I feel fuzzy inside when I see good people make it.

I tend to look for the good in bad people and the bad in good people, to make them human. ‘Cause I don’t think that people generally are that black and white. Maybe in movie-land they can be… but that isn’t necessarily all there is.

I look in music magazines now and see things on Luther Allison, and my name’s getting out there more, thanks to all the good people at Alligator Records and at my management company.

Luther Allison
Good people climb quickly – just like in a company.

Rolf-Dieter Heuer
I’m banking on the fact that there are still good people in government who will prevent this. I’ve been a journalist for more than 33 years, and at Rappler we refuse to change, I refuse to be bullied.

Hang out with good people, do good things, and always put the team first.

There are good people who are dealt a bad hand by fate, and bad people who live long, comfortable, privileged lives. A small twist of fate can save or end a life; random chance is a permanent, powerful player in each of our lives, and in human history as well.

I’ve talked a lot with Greg Raymer and Joe Hachem. Being on Team PokerStars with them has helped me out quite a bit. I’ve traveled around Europe playing with them. I’ve also talked with Robert Williamson here and there and Jim Worth. So I’ve had some good people to talk to and bounce ideas off of.

People in the music industry are very professional and helpful. I really felt encouraged at every point because I met good people and got inspiration from them.

The prevailing mentality was that the Church must not be a Church of laws but, rather, a Church of love; she must not punish. Thus, the awareness that punishment can be an act of love ceased to exist. This led to an odd darkening of the mind, even in very good people.

It is the desire of the good people of the whole country that sectionalism as a factor in our politics should disappear.

It is as pleasant as it is unusual to see thoroughly good people getting their deserts.

Charles Williams
I thought about giving up the sport, but I have a lot of good people around me: my wife, Nina, my family. Everybody keeps helping me to be positive and moving forward.

We have drained common sense out of our politics. The more we focus on tactics and games, the more good people check out and give up.

I don’t require movies to be about good people, and I don’t reject screen violence.

I think the U.K. is an amazing place and has been extremely good to me. Some of my favorite and most-listened-to bands are from England. I have met many good people there and have been in front of some of the most loyal audiences I have ever encountered.

I killed the President because he was the enemy of the good people, the good working people.

Leon Czolgosz
If you stay around good people, then they’ll look out for you.

I now, more and more, appreciate when I’m in a group of good people and get to work in good movies and projects. I’m wildly grateful and appreciative.

Jeff Goldblum
I have real good parents. They poor. They have regular, poor jobs and what not. They real good people and what not; I was just raised in a bad society.

Good people are always forgiving. They close an eye to one’s failings.

There’s actors and actresses who I call ‘Trailer Stars’ because their importance is expressed by how big their trailers are. And then there are real actors, who are real good people.

Little by little, when I was doing auditions in New York, I discovered I was good. People there were enthusiastic.

I’ve realized over the years I either play very good people or very bad people, and I think I always enjoy the very bad people more.

I wanted to act and do good work with good people. I wanted to be a part of good content. That was my only ambition. So I made the most of the opportunities that came to me.

I’ve always read in order to figure out people more, and that includes bad people and good people.

What I do onstage, there’s maybe .0001 percent of the population that acts like that. I talk like that because it makes me laugh, and because I know a couple of people that talk like that. They’re really that Southern. And they do funny things. I love ’em; they’re awesome. They’re good people.

I am proud of the hip hop generation. They are good business people and, actually, good people.

The technologists and entrepreneurs I know are generally good people. If they were given a choice, ‘Do your job and eliminate normal jobs’ or ‘Do your job and create abundant opportunities,’ they would choose the latter. Most of them would happily even take a small hit to do so. But this isn’t a choice they’re given.

Good people do fundamental work because they believe in the work.

The one thing that I know is that you win with good people.

One of the qualities essential to writing exciting stories, whether for page or screen, is an ability to abandon one’s morality. We simply cannot be good writers and good people. One must be able to access one’s darkest self, one’s venality and pettiness and murderousness.

I think from losing my mother, I appreciate having good people around me.

People are complicated. People have secrets. It doesn’t make them good people or bad people.

David Zayas
Primary education was in the first place to teach people to be good people. Only secondary education teaches people to also be useful people.

There are good people here in the Midwest. That’s for sure.

HBO is really famous for hiring good people and staying out of their way until they ask for help, or need it. And that reputation is earned.

Yes. I’m a doctor, an epidemiologist, and lots of my professional colleagues flip back and forth between industry and medical roles. I know them; they are not bad people. But it is possible for good people in bad systems to do things that inflict enormous harm.

If you hire good people, give them good jobs, and pay them good wages, generally something good is going to happen.

People in startup-land live inside it. They see themselves as really good people even when they’re doing something that’s very bad. There’s a huge disconnect from reality in the tech world.

I just play to good people; they seem to like what I do, and the more they like it, the more I play.

John Hunter
In the past when I was in Hollywood, I was like a dog. I felt humiliated. My English was not good. People would even ask me ‘Jackie Who?’.

With young people, it’s how brassy and flashy can you be. But you get a bit older, it’s about how restrained can you be. You have to feel it all, think it all, but you don’t have to play it – it’s just gotta be there, and if the story’s good and the script’s good, people will see it.

Robert Taylor
President Trump rightly points out that law enforcement is mostly made up of good people putting themselves in harm’s way to protect us. He lauds the men and women in blue and often talks about the need to make it easier for the cops to do their jobs.

Well, my take was people of Minnesota, these are good people. They’re in many ways more generous than other parts of the country. They’re better educated than other parts of the country.

Actually, I had a lot of good people with me – my mother’s sister did a lot of taking care of me, and I suppose I got more attention than my stepbrothers because at least I got to travel with my parents.

You don’t learn from good people – they’ve found what works for them and are completely original; you learn from the people who are bad. You think: ‘Oh dear, I’m not going to do that.’

Holiday hiring is only useful if you get the right people, and the consensus among HR professionals is that the most consistent and efficient means of finding good people is to use word of mouth. Namely, this is because focusing on referrals means that only people who are already within your network will apply.

I’m a big believer that you surround yourself with good people which brings the best out of you.

When good people in any country cease their vigilance and struggle, then evil men prevail.

After all those years in the business, I asked myself, ‘Am I really any good? Or am I only good because I’m with good people – a Murray Pearlstein, a Ralph Lauren?

What happens when good people are put into an evil place? Do they triumph or does the situation dominate their past history and morality?

People want to offer opportunities to people they care about. They want to help people they believe are good people or have shared life experiences with.

Many good people serve in Congress. They are patriotic, hard-working, and devoted to the public good as they see it, but the institutional and cultural impediments to change frustrate the intentions of these well-meaning people as rarely before.

The most important thing is that you hire people who complement you and are better than you in specific areas. Good people hire people better than themselves. So A players hire A+ players.

My children came out as individuals in their own right. They were not my products. They had their own characters and were very strong-minded. I gave them a lot of freedom when they were still very young. The one thing they got from me is morals. They would never betray anyone. They are really good people.

I think it’s good to surround yourself with good people.

We’re lucky to live in a country where we have freedom of speech, and I don’t know what the other Avengers are up to, personally, but I know they’re all really good people.

Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws.

Say ‘no’ more than ‘yes,’ and just make sure you surround yourself with good people.

We try to recruit good players and good people.

Tim Buckley
My philosophy of leadership is to surround myself with good people who have ability, judgment and knowledge, but above all, a passion for service.

MSNBC got some very good people. They’ve got a good-looking set. All They’re first-class. Somewhere along the way, they kind of lost their identity as a news channel, and they started doing a lot of other sort of magazine-type programming.

The first few films I made didn’t look good at all, and I wasn’t trying to make them look good. People dig ’em because they like the content.

When good people do bad things, it is sad, but when they reach the point where one can predict that they will do nothing but bad things, a deeper kind of sadness sets in, almost at the level of resignation.

I’d read a lot of thrillers about politicians and presidents, but never one where you flip the stereotypes and make good people bad and bad people good.

David Baldacci
I think that if you do want to be a fighter, then you need to work harder than everybody else and make sure that you surround yourself with good people, especially if you’re a woman. You’ve got to find a team that takes you seriously as a female fighter and is not going to rush you into the ring before you’re ready.

I believe that working with good people matters because then the work environment is good. If there is a sense of respect and belief among the people you work with, that is when good work is done.

I love single life! Why would it be boring? I mean, I get to travel around and have loads of girls screaming at me, so it’s definitely not boring. However, it can get lonely on the road, but I’m sorted I’ve got good people around me.

We have a lot of really great companies in Canada, and I think there’s always been this fear that ‘great’ in Canada doesn’t mean great on a world stage. We need more self-confidence. We are building incredibly good businesses with incredibly good people, being loyal, dedicating themselves to solving important problems.

I am really blessed to have good people around me.

America has been a very cold place to me, and it was good once in a while. I meet good people. Sometimes I meet bad people. But there are some things that I still haven‘t forgotten today that hurt that bad.

I wish more Americans would travel here. I always encourage my friends: ‘Travel. See the Middle East. There’s so much to see, so many good people.’ And it’s vice versa, and it helps stop problems of misunderstanding and stereotypes from happening.

There is no kind of dishonesty into which otherwise good people more easily and frequently fall than that of defrauding the government.

One of the lessons I learned was that there are good people everywhere. That village, Sabray, saved my life.

This may sound trite, but bad things happen to good people, and when you’re facing terrorism, natural disaster, you can have every wonderful plan in place, but I am a realist.

Warren Rudman
I don’t think I would live outside of the Northwest. I think the quality of life in Portland is really good. People move from intense, high-powered jobs, and move to Portland, work half as much and live twice as good.

America is a fundamentally good country. We have good people with good values who want to do the right thing. But the structures of power that exist are working to their own ends to extend their capability at the expense of the freedom of all publics.

I like Iowa. I know Iowa. I’ve spent some time in Iowa. Good people in Iowa. It’s a great state.

Turkey was a great experience for me, both personally and professionally. I met some really good people and had an excellent time on and off the pitch. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was great to experience a new culture.

I’m just thankful I’m surrounded by good people.

I think it’s important to always keep professional and surround yourself with good people, work hard, and be nice to everyone.

Caroline Winberg
During my two terms serving the good people of New Hampshire‘s First District, I always worked for what I call the bottom 99% of Americans, and I never forgot that public office is a public trust.

Carol Shea-Porter
Aladdin is a good soul. He is very selfless and usually does things for other people, but as he falls in love, he loses himself a little bit and starts to become someone that he is not. But he is a person with good intentions and has good people surrounding him who lead him back to where he is supposed to be.

I have good people around me, so I always have advice. A lot of people can talk to me, but it’s me, of course, who still has to take that to the track and to perform.

When I get a chance to play golf or go on a boat with good people, take the boat out and put some lobsters on the grill, get the ice-cold beer and the cigars – that’s heaven here on earth.

Honestly, my secret is I pick really, really good people around me.

There are no morals about technology at all. Technology expands our ways of thinking about things, expands our ways of doing things. If we’re bad people we use technology for bad purposes and if we’re good people we use it for good purposes.

You cannot say the whole industry is bad. There are bad people, but there are many good people as well.

Flint‘s got so many hardworking, good people who just want a fair shake and it starts with making sure their government is responsive and protecting them and making sure everyone’s got access to clean water.

Not all Sherpas are bad. There are a few who are crazy, but the rest are good people.

It ain’t easy to break out of a mold, but if you do your work, people will ultimately see what you’re capable of. Too often, people find it easier to make assumptions and stick with what they believe. They put you in a place and it makes their job easier. The good people constantly search for something different.

That’s the thing I truly enjoy, when you can work with good people who are very talented.

When I first started fighting, it wasn’t the easiest thing. I didn’t have all the money in the world. I was eating Subway once in a while, some packets of oatmeal here and there. It wasn’t that bad, but it’s because I was fortunate and had good people there to support me.

Romantic art deals with the exception and with the individual. Good people, belonging as they do to the normal, and so, commonplace type, are artistically uninteresting.

Sometimes there aren’t enough hours, but I have a really strong team, and I surround myself with good people, and they help me out a lot. I wouldn’t be here without them.

There are good people in radio and the record companies, but there are others who are completely in the wrong job and holding music up in the process.

I’m surrounded by good people, and I surround myself with good people.

I was elected by the good people of Fort George for another five-year term, and I certainly intend to continue serving them in this, my seventh term as a member of the House of Representatives.

I always argued against the auteur theory; films are a collaborative art form. I’ve had some fantastically good people help me make the movies.

Alan Parker
Good people can get you out of a thousand problems with charm and kindness.

America is a great country. I’ve been in the south, in the center and in the north. I like it. Americans are very good people. There’s just too much air-conditioning.

The Muslims have, as everyone else says, the right to practice their religion and they have the right to construct a mosque at ground zero if they wish. What I am saying, though, is that they should listen to public opinion, they should listen to the deep wounds and anguish that this is causing to so many good people.

I like seeing good people win.

When I look back on my career in years to come I will be proud to say I did not just play in a good England team but one with good people, too.

A single person doesn’t change an organization, but culture and good people do.

Surround yourself with really good people. I think that’s an important thing. Because the people you surround yourself are a reflection of you.

The real lover of cats is one who demands a clearer adjustment to the universe than ordinary household platitudes provide; one who refuses to swallow the sentimental notion that all good people love dogs, children, and horses while all bad people dislike and are disliked by such.

There’s no one more valuable for me to learn from than Tom and his wife, Gisele Bundchen, in a lot of ways. Every time I’m around them, I learn. The way they are with their kids, the way they make time to spend with each other, they are just good people.

Good people struggle against what’s imperfect about them. The people that we call ‘bad’ people embrace that kind of stuff, embrace the darker side.

I’m always talking to people and they’re always telling me bad times never last so long. Good people last longer.

I think good things happen to good people.

Buddy Valastro
The thrill of doing ‘Good People’ is I love those kinds of stories, and I’m good at them, and it’s wonderful to see that material given to a terrific director and a terrific cast.

Kelly Masterson
Even in the political arena, we need good people to join politics. I believe women can lead the country.

I’m a good people manager and I like that fact I can draw out their performances.

I’ve been very fortunate to have good people in my life, and when you find good people, you gotta hold onto them real tight.

Most people, 95% of people, are good people. It’s the 5% who get seduced by power.

George Hickenlooper
I’ve been surrounded by good people at West Virginia that have really helped me.

I think I grew up with a profound sense of watching people who were good people, who were smart people, who were hardworking people – God, nobody on this Earth worked harder than my mom and dad – and they had very little.

I attack ideas. I don’t attack people. And some very good people have some very bad ideas. And if you can’t separate the two, you gotta get another day job. You don’t want to be a judge. At least not a judge on a multi-member panel.

God is good for everybody. The sun shines on good people and bad people, and it rains on both, too. God doesn’t choose rain only for bad people.

Mariano Rivera
The Trump administration recognizes that most refugees and immigrants are good people, but practical and temporary measures must be taken to keep this nation safe from the few bad individuals who seek to harm us.

I was lucky. A lot of people have that. People that don’t tell you what you want to hear, but what’s best for you. I was blessed with great friends. I was always blessed that way. My dad always kept good people around me. I just got lucky. Because of the spotlight you’re in, people are scared to tell you otherwise.

It’s a lot easier to do good work when you have good words to say and work with good people.

Mark Harmon
I believe that if you got good people around you and they put in the work to help get you where you at, everybody should eat. No man should be depended on another man.
