The fact is, there’s good people everywhere. That’s what I try and show in my stand-up: good people everywhere. All it takes is one person to mess it up. — Maz Jobrani

People confuse goodness with weakness. It is weak people, not good people (goodness demands strength), who are taken advantage of. — Dennis Prager

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. — Guy Kawasaki

When I write stuff and I help cast it, I turn away good people all the time. I may turn them down because this one’s too tall and that one doesn’t have a high enough voice or this one looks to old to match up with that one – there’s a billion reasons not to hire somebody. — Harvey Fierstein

My talent is my talent. I ain’t really tripping off no ego; I just like to make good music with good people. — Meek Mill

The technologists and entrepreneurs I know are generally good people.

I feel fuzzy inside when I see good people make it. — Tech N9ne
