Famous quotes containing the word largely:

    Philosophy consists very largely of one philosopher arguing that all others are jackasses. He usually proves it, and I should add that he also usually proves that he is one himself.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    William Faulkner (1897–1962)

    In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defence of the indefensible.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)
