Famous quotes containing the word minor:

    Chopin—Two embalmers at work upon a minor poet ... the scent of tuberoses ... Autumn rain.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    There are acacias, a graceful species amusingly devitalized by sentimentality, this kind drooping its leaves with the grace of a young widow bowed in controllable grief, this one obscuring them with a smooth silver as of placid tears. They please, like the minor French novelists of the eighteenth century, by suggesting a universe in which nothing cuts deep.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    A certain minor light may still
    Leap incandescent

    Out of kitchen table or chair
    As if a celestial burning took
    Possession of the most obtuse objects now and then—
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)
