I want to increase the size of a particular text. Suppose I want to write the following:

"I am a hungry cat
I want to drink the rains
I am not thirsty"

I want the middle line to be written in big and I want the 1st and 3rd line to write very small. How can I do that?

    The basic font can be altered with \tiny, \scriptsize, \footnotesize, and \small in the smaller direction. It can go larger with \large, \Large, ...[a few more]...all the way up to \Huge. See Lamport's LaTeX reference book for more specifics.. Feb 21, 2016 at 18:28

  • ...the link I provided references a change in font, but applied to font-size as well. If the link does not answer your question, please provide some feedback as to why this is not the case. Then, provide the community with a minimal working example (MWE) that replicates your current behaviour. Without constraint there are many solutions to your problem, but they may not all fit your use-case, hence the request for a MWE.

You can influence the font size as following:

{\tiny Text of first line}
{\Large Text of second line}
{\tiny Text of third line}
