Famous quotes containing the words events and/or major:

    We have defined a story as a narrative of events arranged in their time-sequence. A plot is also a narrative of events, the emphasis falling on causality. “The king died and then the queen died” is a story. “The king died, and then the queen died of grief” is a plot. The time sequence is preserved, but the sense of causality overshadows it.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    I have not had major experience of talking with people once pronounced brain-dead, but I think we could be safe in saying he did not have great zip.
    Sir Howard Smith (b. 1919)
