Famous quotes containing the word size:

    One writes of scars healed, a loose parallel to the pathology of the skin, but there is no such thing in the life of an individual. There are open wounds, shrunk sometimes to the size of a pin-prick but wounds still. The marks of suffering are more comparable to the loss of a finger, or the sight of an eye. We may not miss them, either, for one minute in a year, but if we should there is nothing to be done about it.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    O hideous little bat, the size of snot,
    With polyhedral eye and shabby clothes,
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    Great causes are never tried on their merits; but the cause is reduced to particulars to suit the size of the partizans, and the contention is ever hottest on minor matters.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
