What is mankind?

Famous quotes containing the word mankind:

    Art and ideology often interact on each other; but the plain fact is that both spring from a common source. Both draw on human experience to explain mankind to itself; both attempt, in very different ways, to assemble coherence from seemingly unrelated phenomena; both stand guard for us against chaos.
    Kenneth Tynan (1927–1980)

    I want to be distinguished from the rest; to tell the truth, a friend to all mankind is not a friend for me.
    Molière [Jean Baptiste Poquelin] (1622–1673)

    The proper study of mankind is man in his relation to his deity.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
