Famous quotes containing the word greater:

    To a small man every greater is an exaggeration.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The greater part of what my neighbors call good I believe in my soul to be bad, and if I repent of anything, it is very likely to be my good behavior. What demon possessed me that I behaved so well? You may say the wisest thing you can, old man,—you who have lived seventy years, not without honor of a kind,—I hear an irresistible voice which invites me away from all that.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    We do not hate as long as we still attach a lesser value, but only when we attach an equal or a greater value.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
