Famous quotes containing the word size:

    Eat your meals according to the size of your bowl.
    Chinese proverb.

    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    Our brains are no longer conditioned for reverence and awe. We cannot imagine a Second Coming that would not be cut down to size by the televised evening news, or a Last Judgment not subject to pages of holier-than-Thou second- guessing in The New York Review of Books.
    John Updike (b. 1932)
