A little extra
Lind is hometown of parliamentarian J.K. Lauridsen (1858 – 1905). He was notorious as a sharp and witty politician, and is the man behind a famous Danish quote spoken from the podium in Danish Parliament in 1888: “Next to the sex drive, the driving of trains is the strongest of all human drives”.
