Famous quotes containing the word secondary:

    The prime purpose of being four is to enjoy being four—of secondary importance is to prepare for being five.
    Jim Trelease (20th century)

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

    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)
