Wow, I don’t know. I have never wanted or needed to express that I or anyone is of “little consequence” so I haven’t thought about. I think the only time I would want to have a way to say such a thing would be if I was writing a story and had a character that believes that some people are of “little” consequence. Read some Dickens, maybe. I bet he has a hundred instances plus some where people have said that others are of no consequence. Hopefully other people will have a better answer than I do.

“claiming to be of little consequence is quite a self important presumptuous thing to say”
