Smaller

Famous quotes containing the word smaller:

    Here is the paradox: What children take from us, they give. When we are not totally “free,” we learn how to cope with a smaller world, less time, less luxury,... We become people who feel more deeply, question more deeply, hurt more deeply and love more deeply.
    Sonia Taitz (20th century)

    It might be seen by what tenure men held the earth. The smallest stream is mediterranean sea, a smaller ocean creek within the land, where men may steer by their farm bounds and cottage lights. For my own part, but for the geographers, I should hardly have known how large a portion of our globe is water, my life has chiefly passed within so deep a cove. Yet I have sometimes ventured as far as to the mouth of my Snug Harbor.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    War will never cease until babies begin to come into the world with larger cerebrums and smaller adrenal glands.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
