Famous quotes containing the word greatest:

    How much the greatest event it is that ever happened in the world! and how much the best!
    Charles James Fox (1749–1806)

    We Irish are too poetical to be poets; we are a nation of brilliant failures, but we are the greatest talkers since the Greeks.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    The necessary has never been man’s top priority. The passionate pursuit of the nonessential and the extravagant is one of the chief traits of human uniqueness. Unlike other forms of life, man’s greatest exertions are made in the pursuit not of necessities but of superfluities.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)
