Famous quotes containing the word secondary:

    A man may be defeated by his own secondary successes.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Cloud-clown, blue painter, sun as horn,
    Hill-scholar, man that never is,
    The bad-bespoken lacker,
    Ancestor of Narcissus, prince
    Of the secondary men. There are no rocks
    And stones, only this imager.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Readers are less and less seen as mere non-writers, the subhuman “other” or flawed derivative of the author; the lack of a pen is no longer a shameful mark of secondary status but a positively enabling space, just as within every writer can be seen to lurk, as a repressed but contaminating antithesis, a reader.
    Terry Eagleton (b. 1943)
