Subsequent Popularity

This has enjoyed somewhat more popularity than the opera.

Famous quotes containing the words popularity and/or subsequent:

    The nation looked upon him as a deserter, and he shrunk into insignificancy and an earldom.... He was fixed in the house of lords, that hospital of incurables, and his retreat to popularity was cut off; for the confidence of the public, when once great and once lost, is never to be regained.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    And he smiled a kind of sickly smile, and curled up on the floor, And the subsequent proceedings interested him no more.
    Francis Bret Harte (1836–1902)
