Famous quotes containing the word trait:

    This is ... a trait no other nation seems to possess in quite the same degree that we do—namely, a feeling of almost childish injury and resentment unless the world as a whole recognizes how innocent we are of anything but the most generous and harmless intentions.

    Stephen Vizinczey (b. 1933)

    But if it is destined never again to grow,
    It can blame this limitless trait in the hearts of men.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
