Dwarf Quotations

A dwarf who brings a standard along with him to measure his own size, take my word, is a dwarf in more articles than one.
Laurence Sterne

A dwarf standing on the shoulders of a giant may see farther than a giant himself.
Robert Burton

Where talent is a dwarf, self-esteem is a giant.
John Petit-Senn

I started a novel back in high school. It wasn't very good. It was the opposite of good. The writing itself wasn't too bad, and the characters were interesting. But the story was a mess, and it was full of fantasy cliches. Dwarf with an axe. Barbarian warrior. I don't ever think I'd bother finishing that. It's just not worth my time.
Patrick Rothfuss

The plants which stand next to dwarf trees in importance with the Chinese are certainly chrysanthemums, which they manage extremely well, perhaps better than they do any other plant.
Robert Fortune
