Famous quotes containing the word greater:

    And what greater calamity can fall upon a nation than the loss of worship? Then all things go to decay. Genius leaves the temple to haunt the senate or the market.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Creative writers are always greater than the causes that they represent.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    Since I am a man, my heart is three or four times less sensitive, because I have three or four times as much power of reason and experience of the world—a thing which you women call hard-heartedness. As a man, I can take refuge in having mistresses. The more of them I have, and the greater the scandal, the more I acquire reputation and brilliance in society.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)
