She is a naturalist among tame animals. She does not study men (as Dostoevsky does) in his wild state before he has been domesticated. Her men and women are essentially men and women of the fireside  (Robert Wilson Lynd Quotes) There are two sorts of curiosity - the momentary and the permanent.

His poems... reveal him as a man not altogether free from the vulgarities of sensualism, as well as one who was able to transmute it into perfect literature  (Robert Wilson Lynd Quotes) No man is uninteresting when his hat is blown off and he has to scuttle after it down the street  (Robert Wilson Lynd Quotes) The art of writing history is the art of emphasizing the significant facts at the expense of the insignificant. And it is the same in every field of knowledge. Knowledge is power only if a man knows what facts not to bother about  (Robert Wilson Lynd Quotes) We cannot get happiness by striving after it, and yet with an effort we can impart it  (Robert Wilson Lynd Quotes) This is woman’s great benevolence, that she will become a martyr for beauty, so that the world may have pleasure  (Robert Wilson Lynd Quotes) The days on which one has been the most inquisitive are among the days on which one has been happiest  (Robert Wilson Lynd Quotes) The belief in the possibility of a short decisive war appears to be one of the most ancient and dangerous of human illusions  (Robert Wilson Lynd Quotes) It is almost impossible to remember how tragic a place the world is when one is playing golf  (Robert Wilson Lynd Quotes) There is nothing in which the birds differ more from man than the way in which they can build and yet leave a landscape as it was before  (Robert Wilson Lynd Quotes)
