Famous quotes containing the word stein:

    It is hard living down the tempers we are born with. We
    all begin well, for in our youth there is nothing we
    are more intolerant of than our own sins writ large in
    others and we fight them fiercely in ourselves; but we
    grow old and we see that these our sins are of all sins
    the really harmless ones to own, nay that they give a
    charm to any character, and so our struggle with them
    dies away.
    —Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Jews do not like the country, yes thank you, christians donot all like the city. Yes and thank you. There are no differences between the city and the country and very likely every one can be daily daily and by that timely.
    —Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Everybody thinks that this civilization has lasted a very long time but it really does take very few grandfathers’ granddaughters to take us back to the dark ages.
    —Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
