Which one is correct?

People who are strong will

or

People who have/has strong will

I was watching this movie and someone said:

People who are strong will, end up hurting others and people who are weak will, end up hating the others.

I wonder if it is correct or not.

    I think it probable that you have either misheard or misparsed this utterance. There are two possibilities; the speaker may have said People who are strong will end up hurting others or may have said People who are strong-willed end up hurting others. Without hearing the actual soundtrack we cannot say which. Commented Sep 18, 2016 at 11:01
  • I think @StoneyB is correct and you've put in the commas by accident.

You can either say

People who have a strong will

or

People who are strong-willed

These are both correct usages. In your case, however, it seems that you have put the commas in the wrong place, as mentioned by @StoneyB.
