I have seen the dumb men throng to see him, and
  The blind to hear him speak. Matrons flung gloves,
    Ladies and maids their scarfs and handkerchers,
      Upon him as he passed. The nobles bended,
        As to Jove's statue, and the commons made
          A shower and thunder with their caps and shouts.
            I never saw the like.
      - William Shakespeare, Coriolanus
         (Messenger at II, i)

The ladies call him sweet.
  The stairs, as he treads them, kiss his feet.
      - William Shakespeare, Love's Labor's Lost
         (Berowne at V, ii)

The love of popularity seems little else than the love of being beloved; and is only blamable when a person aims at the affections of a people by means in appearance honest, but in their end pernicious and destructive.
      - William Shenstone

Good-humor and, generosity carry day with the popular heart all the world over.
      - Alexander Smith

A free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular.
      - Adlai E. Stevenson

There was ease in Casey's manner as he stept into his place,
  There was pride in Casey's bearing and a smile on Casey's face,
    And when responding to the cheers he lightly doft his hat,
      No stranger in the crowd could doubt, 't was
        Casey at the bat.
      - Ernest Lawrence Thayer, Casey at the Bat

The rude reproaches of the rascal herd for the selfsame actions, if successful, would be as grossly lavish in their praise.
      - James Thomson (1)
