Favorite Minuscule Quotes

1. "Each thought was epic yet minuscule."
Author: Aleatha Romig
2. "It was a single poppy seed...she rolled it between her fingers and raised her eyes past the straining sails, to the star-filled vault above. On any other night she would have scanned the sky for the planet she had always thought to be the arbiter of her fate - but tonight her eyes dropped instead to the tiny sphere she was holding between her thumb and forefinger. She looked at the seed as if she had never seen one before, and suddenly she knew that it was not the planet above that governed her life: it was this minuscule orb - at once bountiful and all-devouring, merciful and destructive, sustaining and vengeful. This was her Shani, her Saturn."
Author: Amitav Ghosh
3. "Eternity can be found in the minuscule, in the place where earthworms, along with billions of unseen soil-dwelling microorganisms, engage in a complex and little-understood dance with the tangle of plant roots that make up their gardens, their cities."
Author: Amy Stewart
4. "Nevertheless, in the theatre, and in the cinema, the contemporary reality of Poland has been represented only to a minuscule degree in the last 12 years."

6. "The chance of receiving a signal from a civilization exactly as advanced as we are should be minuscule. If they were even a little behind us, they would lack the technological capability to communicate with us at all. So the most likely signal would come from a civilization much more advanced."
Author: Carl Sagan
7. "With your teacher, she said, playing with intimacy, and she was white and smooth. Not miserable and not knowing anything, not abandoned, not dirty-kneed like Joana, like Joana! Joana got up and she knew that her skirt was short, that her blouse was clinging to her minuscule, hesitant bust. Flee, run to the beach, lie face-down in the sand, hide her face, listen to the sound of the sea."
Author: Clarice Lispector
8. "If she possessed any memory whatsoever of the days when she'd been whole, her shattered recollections were scattered across the darkscape of her mind in fragments so minuscule that she could no more easily piece them together than she could gather from the beach all the tiny chips of broken seashells, worn to polished flakes by ages of relentless tides, and reassemble them into their original architectures."
Author: Dean Koontz
9. "Bien différente eut été leur vie s'ils avaient su à temps qu'il est plus facile de contourner les grandes catastrophes conjugales que les minuscules misères de tous les jours."

10. "... supraoamenilor nu trebuie sa li se explice nimic, ei n-au nevoie de permisiunea noastra, smulg vie?ii ceea ce au chef sa ia. Se revolta, ucid, violeaza fiindca se numesc Attila sau Don Juan. Cât despre ceilal?i, oamenii medii, cei slabi, turma, trebuie sa li se spuna adevarul. Sa li se spuna ca sunt muritori, ca toata via?a vor avea un numar foarte limitat de aman?i sau amante, câteva porniri de eroism, câteva revolte minuscule ?i ca, pentru a profita de ea, e mai bine sa fie supu?i ?i... pro?ti. Tocmai ceea ce sunt. Atunci le va fi permis sa stea în fa?a televizorului sa se uite la meci (bere ?i alune), pe urma sa-?i calareasca nevasta, sa cumpere calatorii la pre? redus prin comitetul lor de întreprindere, sa joace la loto, sa nu se gândeasca la moarte, nici la sensul vie?ii. Caci tocmai asta e idealul oricarei societa?i care se respecta: sa-i asigure ceta?eanului statutul unui prost fericit care nu se gânde?te la sensul vie?ii."
Author: Gabriel Osmonde
11. "So what do you think?' He asked, holding up the book.‘I think Salinger is a closet paedophile,' I replied placidly and was surprised and comforted by this minuscule, acidic, bitter Sylvia Plath like mocking, sniping tone that had crept into my voice. ‘The main character Seymour is a fully grown man and a pervert who befriends young girls with his storytelling and swimming, just to get close enough to groom them in preparation for the inevitable sexual assault he lusts after. You might have noticed for example in A Perfect Day For Bananafish he grabs the young girls-'‘Sybil.'‘He grabs Sybil's ankles while lying on the beach and again when he pushes her in the water,' I continued. ‘He goes too far when he kisses the bottom of her foot which makes even a four-year-old yell out in fear, knowing a line had been crossed. Frustrated Seymour walks away and goes back to his hotel where he kills himself in shame."
Author: J.D. Gallagher
12. "He knows that after him everything will continue on much as before, except that there will be a minuscule absence, a barely detective gap in the so-called grand scheme, one unit fewer now. Or not even that, not even an empty space where he once was, for all will rush immediately to fill that vacuum. Pft. Gone. Recollections of him will remain in the minds of others for a while, but presently those others too will die and his few relics with them. And then all will be dark."
Author: John Banville
13. "As in the universe every atom has an effect, however minuscule, on every other atom, so that to pinch the fabric of Time and Space at any point is to shake the whole length and breadth of it, so in fiction every element has effect on every other, so that to change a character's name from Jane to Cynthia is to make the fictional ground shudder under her feet."
Author: John Gardner
14. "Sea horses have complicated routines for courtship, and tend to mate under full moons, making musical sounds while doing so. They live in long-term monogamous partnerships. What is perhaps most unusual, though, is that it is the male sea horse that carries the young for up to six weeks. Males become properly "pregnant," not only carrying, but fertilizing and nourishing the developing eggs with fluid secretions. The image of males giving birth is perpetually mind-blowing: a turbid liquid bursts forth from the brood pouch, and like magic, minuscule but fully formed sea horses appear out of the cloud."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer
15. "Learn some manners or I'll email the whole high school about how small your dick is - because we both know that I'm aware of exactly how small it is.""Whore," he muttered, shooting Chloe a filthy glare over his shoulder."Ha. You might have better luck with a whore, actually. Me You couldn't pay me to bang you again. Dick's too minuscule to keep a lady satisfied."
Author: Kody Keplinger
16. "Ship, lady. This here's a ship," he said defensively, as if she'd told him, "Your penis: I find it minuscule."
Author: Kresley Cole
17. "A veteran reporter knows there is a disconnect between how an event in a region is experienced and the way it is perceived in distant capitals. He sends dispatches about violent insurrections, riots and clashes, and feels his words loom large in his mind, then become small, minuscule, in the sending,until eventually he discovers that none of his reporting produces more than a twinge or yawn in the wider world."
Author: Kyo Maclear
18. "Il suffit d'une minuscule graine d'espoir pour planter tout un champ de bonheur… et d'un peu de patience pour lui laisser le temps de pousser."
Author: Marc Levy
19. "Son cou est saupoudré de grains de beauté minuscules, constellations descendant jusqu'à ses seins. Je deviens l'astronome de sa peau, fourre mon nez dans ses étoiles."
Author: Mathias Malzieu
20. "However you must have sensed a lurking 'but' skulking beneath my happy, blithe, and chipper exterior. A minuscule vexation, like the teeniest lump of raw liver sticking to the inside of my boot."
Author: Neil Gaiman
21. "Or, obversely, he might kill a man himself. It would be a question of throwing up his rifle, pressing the trigger, and a particular envelope of lusts and anxieties and perhaps some goodness would be quite dead. All as easy as stepping on an insect, perhaps easier…Everything was completely out of whack, none of the joints fitted. The men had been singing in the motor pool, and there had been something nice about it, something childish and brave. And they were here on this road, a point moving along in a line in the vast neutral spaces of the jungle. And somewhere else a battle might be going on. The artillery, the small-arms fire they had been hearing constantly, might be nothing, something scattered along the front, or it might be all concentrated now in the minuscule inferno of combat. None of it matched. The night had broken them into all the isolated units that actually they were."
Author: Norman Mailer
22. "A man going quietly about his business all day long expends far more muscular energy than an athlete who lifts a huge weight once a day. This has been proved physiologically, and so the social sum total of everybody's little everyday efforts, especially when added together, doubtless releases far more energy into the world than do rare heroic feats. This total even makes the single heroic feat look positively minuscule, like a grain of sand on a mountaintop with a megalomaniacal sense of its own importance."
Author: Robert Musil
23. "Compared to today's salaries, our cut was minuscule but it was very good for the time."
Author: Robert Vaughn
24. "God cautions us in Isaiah 55:9 that his ways are not ours and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts (undoubtedly one of the grander understatements).God is warning us that he is not logical and that believing him to be logical will lead to all kinds of disappointment.Logic has been defined as 'the science or history of the human mind, as it traces the progress of our knowledge from our first conceptions through their different combinations, and the numerous deductions that result from comparing them with one another.'Doesn't sound much like God. Yet, we so often strain our relatively minuscule brains to conceive, combine, compare, and deduce. Then we fault God when his conclusions disagree.The repetition of this useless exercise leads to a form of insanity which ultimately manifests in denial of the existence of such an illogical God."
Author: Ron Brackin
25. "We all tell little lies about ourselves, Our past, our presents. We think some of them are minuscule, unimportant, And others, large and incriminating. But they are the same. Only God Has enough of the story to judge our souls."
Author: Sarah McCoy
26. "You'll pardon me," he finally said, "if the suggestion that the minuscule black turnip you call a heart is suddenly overflowing with generosity toward me leaves me wanting to arm myself and put my back against a wall."
Author: Scott Lynch
27. "It's sad that in a world of billions, people can still feel isolated and alone. Sometimes all it takes to brighten up someone's day is a smile or kind word, or the generous actions of a complete stranger. Small things, the tiny details, these are the things that matter in life — the little glint in the eye, curve of a lip, nod of a head, wave of a hand — such minuscule movements have huge ripple effects."
Author: Shaun Hick
28. "...But living creatures are strange. They are made in such a way that they can actualize only what their minuscule minds wish for."
Author: Sosuke Aizen
29. "The sting shot pain all the way to my elbow, causing me to marvel at how much punishment a minuscule creature can inflict. I'm prideful enough to say I didn't complain. After you get stung, you can't get unstung no matter how much you whine about it. I just dived back into the riptide of saving bees."
Author: Sue Monk Kidd
30. "...our brains are minuscule fragments of the universe, much too small to hold all the facts of the world but not too idle to speculate about them."
Author: Valentino Braitenberg
31. "Like a master of origami who can take a simple square of paper and turn it into an intricate network of folded angles to create a dragon, I can take a minuscule problem in my life and turn it into a massive complication."
Author: Virginia M. Sanders
