Famous quotes containing the word kind:

    she
    is kind and very clean without
    ostentation
    but she has
    no imagination.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    Even their song is not a sure thing.
    It is not a language;
    it is a kind of breathing.
    They are two asthmatics
    whose breath sobs in and out
    through a small fuzzy pipe.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    That excitement about Kossuth, consider how characteristic, but superficial, it was!—only another kind of politics or dancing. Men were making speeches to him all over the country, but each expressed only the thought, or the want of thought, of the multitude. No man stood on truth. They were merely banded together, as usual one leaning on another, and all together on nothing.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
