Famous quotes containing the word kind:

    Nor good, nor bad, nor fools, nor wise,
    They would not learn, nor could advise:
    Without love, hatred, joy or fear,
    They led—a kind of—as it were:
    Nor wished, nor cared, nor laughed, nor cried:
    And so they lived; and so they died.
    Matthew Prior (1664–1721)

    This man was very clever and quick to learn anything in his line. Our tent was of a kind new to him; but when he had once seen it pitched, it was surprising how quickly he would find and prepare the pole and forked stakes to pitch it with, cutting and placing them right the first time, though I am sure that the majority of white men would have blundered several times.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I do not mind if I lose my soul for all eternity. If the kind of God exists Who would damn me for not working out a deal with Him, then that is unfortunate. I should not care to spend eternity in the company of such a person.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)
