Famous quotes containing the word type:

    To put it rather bluntly, I am not the type who wants to go back to the land; I am the type who wants to go back to the hotel.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1951)

    Mediocre people have an answer for everything and are astonished at nothing. They always want to have the air of knowing better than you what you are going to tell them; when, in their turn, they begin to speak, they repeat to you with the greatest confidence, as if dealing with their own property, the things that they have heard you say yourself at some other place.... A capable and superior look is the natural accompaniment of this type of character.
    Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863)

    He turned out to belong to the type of publisher who dreams of becoming a male muse to his author, and our brief conjunction ended abruptly upon his suggesting I replace chess by music and make Luzhin a demented violinist.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
