Famous quotes containing the word minor:

    For a country to have a great writer ... is like having another government. That’s why no régime has ever loved great writers, only minor ones.
    Alexander Solzhenitsyn (b. 1918)

    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 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)
