“The entire population of the universe, with one trifling exception, is composed of others.”  John Andrew Holmes

I ran across this quote again today.  With some frequency I need to be reminded that I am but one of the (approximately) 7,500,000,000 who inhabit this clod of dirt orbiting the sun.  Still, I struggle with the word “trifling,” and would have preferred that Holmes would have omitted that word, for my sake, and for the other 7,499,999,999’s sake.
