Definition
of very great significance
  • A momentous decision, she understands, though she does not know what hangs on it, has no way of guessing that time has stopped, hangs ready to reverse as old Hubble's bubble prepares to collapse, a new stroke of the giant heart; or at any rate that human hearts, caught and locked in their wide thrombosis, hardening, dark with indecision, will tremble to the prick of her wellmeant revolt and life will move again, rush down its channels, roaring.
