People talk fundamentals and superlatives and then make some changes of detail.
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

He was a genius - that is to say, a man who does superlatively and without obvious effort something that most people cannot do by the uttermost exertion of their abilities.
Robertson Davies superlatives quote

The art of advertisement, after the American manner, has introduced into all our life such a lavish use of superlatives, that no standard of value whatever is intact.
— Percy Wynham Lewis

When the first-rate author wants an exquisite heroine or a lovely morning, he finds that all the superlatives have been worn shoddy by his inferiors. It should be a rule that bad writers must start with plain heroines and ordinary mornings, and, if they are able, work up to something better.
— F. Scott Fitzgerald

One of the greatest satisfactions one can ever have, comes from the knowledge that he can do some one thing superlatively well.
