Definition
of little importance — sometimes more specifically describing a challenge as easy and uninteresting
  • Our rash faults Make trivial price of serious things we have, Not knowing them until we know their grave: Oft our displeasures, to ourselves unjust, Destroy our friends, and after weep their dust: Our own love waking cries to see what's done, While shameful hate sleeps out the afternoon.
    5.3 — Act 5 Scene 3 — The same. A room in the COUNTESS'S palace (18% in)
