Kind Quotes

Jokes of the proper kind, properly told, can do more to enlighten questions of politics, philosophy, and literature than any number of dull arguments

Isaac Asimov

Some kind of moral discovery should be the object of every tale.

Connor, Sir William Neil

Never bear more than one kind of trouble at a time. Some people bear three - all they have had, all they have now, and all they expect to have

Edward Everett Hale

With the unknown, one is confronted with danger, discomfort, and care; the first instinct is to abolish these painful states. First principle: any explanation is better than none. . . . The causal instinct is thus conditional upon, and excited by, the feeling of fear. The "why?" shall, if at all possible, not give the cause for its own sake so much as for a particular kind of cause -- a cause that is comforting, liberating, and relieving.

Friedrich Nietzsche

You can get much farther with a kind word and a gun than you can with a kind word alone.

Al Capone

Every woman while she would be ready to die of shame if surprised in the act of generation, nonetheless carries her pregnancy without a trace of shame and indeed with a kind of pride. The reason is that pregnancy is in a certain sense a cancellation of the guilt incurred by coitus; thus coitus bears all the shame and disgrace of the affair, while pregnancy, which is so intimately associated with it, stays pure and innocent and is indeed to some extent sacred.

Arthur Schopenhauer

It is true I gained muscular vigour, but with it a prodigious appetite, which I was compelled to indulge, and consequently increased in weight, until my kind old friend advised me to forsake the exercise.

William Banting

When people keep telling you that you can't do a thing, you kind of like to try it.

Margaret Chase Smith

There is this long, wonderful history of the human race written in blood. We have this tendency to just take what we want. And that's how we treat the natural world as well. There's this sense of we're here, we're big, we've got the guns, we've got the technology, therefore we're entitled to every damn thing on this planet. That's not how it works and we're going to find out the hard way if we don't kind of wise up and start seeking a life that's in balance with the natural life on Earth.

James Cameron

I can honestly say this industry has not made me neurotic about my looks, except maybe my weight. I hope my clothes kind of reflect that. They are meant to make you feel good.

Stella McCartney

Creative minds have always been known to survive any kind of bad training.

Anna Freud

Thou shall not kill does not apply to murder of one's own kind only, but to all living beings; and this Commandment was inscribed in the human breast long before it was proclaimed from Sinai

Leo Tolstoy

Fill up, fill up, for wisdom cools When ever we let the wine rest. Here is death to Prohibitions fools, And every kind of vine-pest!

Jamrach Holobom

I may not here omit those two main plagues and common dotages of human kind, wine and women, which have infatuated and besotted myriads of people; they go commonly together.

Robert Burton

There's been progress toward seeing that nature and culture are not opposing terms, and that wilderness is not the only kind of landscape for environmentalists to concern themselves with.

Michael Pollan

Efficiency of a practically flawless kind may be reached naturally in the struggle for bread. But there is something beyond a higher point, a subtle and unmistakable touch of love and pride beyond mere skill; almost an inspiration which gives to all work that finish which is almost art which is art.

Joseph Conrad

Seek out people who arent afraid of making mistakes and who, therefore, do make mistakes. Because of that, their work often isnt recognized, but they are precisely the kind of people who change the world and, after many mistakes, do something that will transform their own community completely.

Paulo Coelho

Time for the weather report. It's cold out folks. Bonecrushing cold. The kind of cold which will wrench the spirit out of a young man, or forge it into steel.

Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

Finding a calm place inside myself through meditation kind of helped me to get over a lot of mental illness ... it's just been a really great thing in my life.

Roseeanne Barr

I am a kind of paranoiac in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy.

J. D. Salinger

Comradeship is obvious and universal and open; but it is only one kind of affection; it has characteristics that would destroy any other kind. Anyone who has known true comradeship in a club or in a regiment, knows that it is impersonal.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Reason is always a kind of brute force; those who appeal to the head rather than the heart, however pallid and polite, are necessarily men of violence. We speak of 'touching' a man's heart, but we can do nothing to his head but hit it.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Every human should have the idea of taking care of the environment, of nature, of water. So using too much or wasting water should have some kind of feeling or sense of concern. Some sort of responsibility and with that, a sense of discipline

The 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso

The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is reason.
