Famous quotes containing the word sort:

    In early times every sort of advantage tends to become a military advantage; such is the best way, then, to keep it alive. But the Jewish advantage never did so; beginning in religion, contrary to a thousand analogies, it remained religious. For that we care for them; from that have issued endless consequences.
    Walter Bagehot (1826–1877)

    I’ve spoiled Jemima in more ways than one.
    She’s got so she turns in at every house
    As if she had some sort of curvature,
    No matter if I have no errand there.
    She thinks I’m sociable. I maybe am.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
