Famous quotes containing the word petty:

    There be as many persons of a king, as there be petty constables in his kingdom. And so there are, or else he cannot be obeyed. But I never said that a king, and every one of his persons, are the same substance.
    Thomas Hobbes (1579–1688)

    My fate cries out,
    And makes each petty artery in this body
    As hardy as the Nemean lion’s nerve.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    You all know that even when women have full rights, they still remain fatally downtrodden because all housework is left to them. In most cases housework is the most unproductive, the most barbarous and the most arduous work a woman can do. It is exceptionally petty and does not include anything that would in any way promote the development of the woman.
    Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870–1924)
