Trifle Quotes

Passion costs me too much to bestow it on every trifle.

Thomas Adams

Think naught a trifle, though it small appear; sands make the mountain, moments make the year, and trifles, life. Your care to trifles give, else you may die ere you have learned to live.

Plautus

Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.

E. B. White
