Meaning of a sentence

Think what following sentences would mean to you if you hear them in day-to-day conversation.

S1: “People, who do not work on anything, think that nothing is impossible.”
Makes sense?

S2: “People, who do not work on anything, think that everything is impossible.”
Makes sense?

It may seem like S1 and S2 are complementary and that means only one should make sense.
Think more annd you will realize that it is not so!

Hints:
* S1 can be taken to mean that people, who do not do things themselves, can easily think that something impossible is really possible to do when that thing is supposed to be done by others.

* S2 can be taken to mean that people, who do not do things themselves, think that everything is impossible beacuse that is the reason they do not do things in the first place.

* Or read S3.
S3: “People, who do not work on anything, think that something is impossible.”

* What do you mean by ‘people’: all persons? some persons? Specific type of persons? ‘people’ in S1 is same as ‘people’ in S2?
