Mankind Quotes


The first thing one will notice in researching mankind quotes, is that very few of them actually include the word “mankind.” While it is true that the word literally refers to members of the human race without reference to sex, it nevertheless is somewhat perplexing that the word comes up so rarely. Fortunately, we can thank 12th century author Andreas Capellanus for including it in his wise contribution, “If out of all mankind one finds a single friend, he has found something more precious than any treasure, since there is nothing in the world so valuable that it can be compared to a real friend.” Mankind quotes may be rare, but perhaps a few brilliant ones are enough.
