I quote the OP's original message:

        find /etc -size -1G
        should return all files less than 1Giga byte in /etc, but return
        list of empty file (size=0)
I think it's clear that he wants to find files of under 1Gb. That is not
what "find -size 1G" does. It gives a list of all files with non-zero
size, which is not the same thing.
