Famous quotes containing the word kind:

    It has been the struggle between privileged men who have managed to get hold of the levers of power and the people in general with their vague and changing aspirations for equality, for justice, for some kind of gentler brotherhood and peace, which has kept that balance of forces we call our system of government in equilibrium.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    Our kind multiplies:

    We shall by morning
    Inherit the earth.
    Our foot’s in the door.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)

    It is impossible for a stranger traveling through the United States to tell from the appearance of the people or the country whether he is in Toledo, Ohio, or Portland, Oregon. Ninety million Americans cut their hair in the same way, eat each morning exactly the same breakfast, tie up the small girls’ curls with precisely the same kind of ribbon fashioned into bows exactly alike; and in every way all try to look and act as much like all the others as they can.
    Alfred Harmsworth, Lord Northcliffe (1865–1922)
