Famous quotes containing the word sort:

    Self-interest speaks all sort of languages, and plays all sort of roles—even that of disinterest.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    You say your own soul supplies you with some sort of an idea or image of God. But at the same time you acknowledge you have, properly speaking, no idea of your own soul. You even affirm that spirits are a sort of beings altogether different from ideas. Consequently that no idea can be like a spirit. We have therefore no idea of any spirit.
    George Berkeley (1685–1753)

    The high-water mark, so to speak, of Socialist literature is W.H. Auden, a sort of gutless Kipling.
