Famous quotes containing the word minor:

    Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child’s world and thus a world event.
    Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962)

    Great causes are never tried on their merits; but the cause is reduced to particulars to suit the size of the partizans, and the contention is ever hottest on minor matters.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A child who fears excessive retaliation for even minor offenses will learn very early on that to lie is to protect himself.... If your child intuits that you will react very punitively to his wrongdoing, he may be tempted to lie and may become, as time goes on, a habitual liar.
    Lawrence Balter (20th century)
