Famous quotes containing the words types of and/or types:

    ... there are two types of happiness and I have chosen that of the murderers. For I am happy. There was a time when I thought I had reached the limit of distress. Beyond that limit, there is a sterile and magnificent happiness.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)

    He types his laboured column—weary drudge!
    Senile fudge and solemn:
    Spare, editor, to condemn
    These dry leaves of his autumn.
    Robertson Davies (b. 1913)
