Subjects quotes by Charles Dudley Warner
#1. The chief effect of talk on any subject is to strengthen one's own opinions, and, in fact, one never knows exactly what he does believe until he is warmed into conviction by the heat of attack and defence. #Quote by Charles Dudley Warner
Subjects quotes by Dav Pilkey
#2. It's been said that adults spend the first two years of their children's lives trying to make them walk and talk, and the next sixteen years trying to get them to sit down and shut up.
It's the same way with potty training: Most adults spend the first few years of a child's life cheerfully discussing pee and poopies, and how important it is to learn to put your pee-pee and poo-poo in the potty like big people do.
But once children have mastered the art of toilet training, they are immeadiately forbidden to ever talk about poop, pee, toilets and other bathroom-related subjects again. Such things are now considered rude and vulgar, and are no longer rewarded with praise and cookies and juice boxes.
One day you're a superstar because you pooped in the toilet like a big boy, and the next day you're sitting in the principal's office because you said the word "poopy" in American History class (which, if you ask me, is the perfect place to say that word). #Quote by Dav Pilkey
Subjects quotes by Charles Dickens
#3. Year last past (supernaturally deficient in originality) rapped out theirs. Mere messages in the earthly order of events had lately come to the English Crown and People, from a congress of British subjects in America: which, strange #Quote by Charles Dickens
Subjects quotes by Dorothea Dix
#4. Of all the calamities to which humanity is subject, none is so dreadful as insanity ... All experience shows that insanity seasonably treated is as certainly curable as a cold or a fever. #Quote by Dorothea Dix
Subjects quotes by Samuel Johnson
#5. He that accepts protection, stipulates obedience. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Subjects quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#6. People are very good [at] thinking about agents. The mind is set really beautifully to think about agents. Agents have traits. Agents have behaviors. We understand agents. We form global impression of their personalities. We are really not very good at remembering sentences where the subject of the sentence is an abstract notion. #Quote by Daniel Kahneman
Subjects quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#7. Tea, for me, is one of the great subjects. It is a romatic trade, it does not pollute excessively, it has all sorts of health benefits, it calms and wakes you up at the same time. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Subjects quotes by Isabel Bishop
#8. I hope my work is recognizable as being by a woman, though I certainly would never deliberately make it feminine in any way, in subject or treatment. But if I speak in a voice which is my own, it's bound to be the voice of a woman. #Quote by Isabel Bishop
Subjects quotes by Thomas Harris
#9. On a related subject, Signore Pazzi, I must confess to you: I'm giving serious thought to eating your wife. #Quote by Thomas Harris
Subjects quotes by Robert Herrick
#10. Twixt kings and tyrants there's this difference known; Kings seek their subjects' good: tyrants their own. #Quote by Robert Herrick
Subjects quotes by Cesar Milstein
#11. What attracted me to immunology was that the whole thing seemed to revolve around a very simple experiment: take two different antibody molecules and compare their primary sequences. #Quote by Cesar Milstein
Subjects quotes by Mitch Kapor
#12. Wikipedia has a way of compiling compendiums of information on subjects. #Quote by Mitch Kapor
Subjects quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#13. The dilemma is this. In the modern world knowledge has been growing so fast and so enormously, in almost every field, that the probabilities are immensely against anybody, no matter how innately clever, being able to make a contribution in any one field unless he devotes all his time to it for years. If he tries to be the Rounded Universal Man, like Leonardo da Vinci, or to take all knowledge for his province, like Francis Bacon, he is most likely to become a mere dilettante and dabbler. But if he becomes too specialized, he is apt to become narrow and lopsided, ignorant on every subject but his own, and perhaps dull and sterile even on that because he lacks perspective and vision and has missed the cross-fertilization of ideas that can come from knowing something of other subjects. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Subjects quotes by Anna Deavere Smith
#14. I write plays about big, intense subjects. #Quote by Anna Deavere Smith
Subjects quotes by Raymond Chandler
#15. Everything written with vitality expresses that vitality; there are no dull subjects, only dull minds. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Subjects quotes by Margery Fish
#16. One of the most delightful things about gardening is the freemasonry it gives with other gardeners, and the interest and pleasure all gardeners get by visiting other people's gardens. We all have a lot to learn and in every new garden there is a chance of finding inspiration - new flowers, different arrangement or fresh treatment for old subjects. Even if it is a garden you know by heart there are twelve months in the year and every month means a different garden, and the discovery of things unexpected all the rest of the year. #Quote by Margery Fish
Subjects quotes by Garry Winogrand
#17. I like to think of photographing as a two-way act of respect. Respect for the medium, by letting it do what it does best, describe. And respect for the subject, by describing it as it is. A photograph must be responsible to both. #Quote by Garry Winogrand
Subjects quotes by John Stuart Mill
#18. Popular opinions, on subjects not palpable to sense, are often true, but seldom or never the whole truth. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Subjects quotes by Peter Forsyth
#19. People complain that the religious ground is unsure who have never compelled themselves to examine it with a tithe of the care spent on a contract; but they have taken current suggestions in a dreamy and hypnotised way. They will not attend, they will not force themselves to attend, gravely to the gravest things ... they read everything in a vagrant, browsing fashion. They turn on the most serious subjects the holiday, seaside, newspaper habit of mind #Quote by Peter Forsyth
Subjects quotes by Huey Newton
#20. Any unarmed people are slaves, or are subject to slavery at any given moment. #Quote by Huey Newton
Subjects quotes by Wilhelm Reich
#21. Apartment houses, public transportation, and schools tell us something about the technical development of a society. They do not tell us whether the members of that society are suppressed subjects or free workers, whether they are rational or irrational men and women. #Quote by Wilhelm Reich
Subjects quotes by Joseph Epstein
#22. What all great teachers appear to have in common is love of their subject, an obvious satisfaction in rousing this love in their students, and an ability to convince them that what they are being taught is deadly serious #Quote by Joseph Epstein
Subjects quotes by William James
#23. Religious feeling is thus an absolute addition to the subject's range of life. It gives him a new sphere of power. When the outward battle is lost, and the outward world disowns him, it redeems and vivifies an interiour world which otherwise would be an empty waste. #Quote by William James
Subjects quotes by Nancy Pelosi
#24. The American people are very, very ready for a woman president. They're far ahead of the politicians. I always thought it would be much easier to elect a woman president of the United States than Speaker of the House, because the people are far ahead, as I say, of the electeds, on the subject of a woman being president. #Quote by Nancy Pelosi
Subjects quotes by William Blake
#25. Rhetoric completes the tools of learning. Dialectic zeros in on the logic of things, of particular systems of thought or subjects. Rhetoric takes the next grand step and brings all these subjects together into one whole. #Quote by William Blake
Subjects quotes by Hirohito
#26. To strive for the common prosperity and happiness of all nations, as well as the security and wellbeing of our subjects, is the solemn obligation which has been handed down by our imperial ancestors and which lies close to our heart, #Quote by Hirohito
Subjects quotes by Edith Hall
#27. An illuminating read for every classical scholar engaged with the current quest for the subject's roots, and the excavation of the way that it has evolved over the past century and a half. #Quote by Edith Hall
Subjects quotes by Thomas Sowell
#28. What is called an educated person is often someone who has had a dangerously superficial exposure to a wide spectrum of subjects. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Subjects quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#29. The most perilous moment for a bad government is one when it seeks to mend its ways. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Subjects quotes by James Webb Young
#30. Drop the whole subject and put it out of your mind and let your subconscious do its thing. #Quote by James Webb Young
Subjects quotes by John Dryden
#31. The bravest men are subject most to chance. #Quote by John Dryden
Subjects quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#32. On the subject of dress almost no one, for one or another reason, feels truly indifferent: if their own clothes do not concern them, somebody else's do. #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Subjects quotes by Susan Mann
#33. Technology is a cross-curriculum perspective running through the new Australia curriculum, and there are a number of technology subject areas as well which include coding which has not previously been part of the Australian Curriculum. #Quote by Susan Mann
Subjects quotes by Karl Wiggins
#34. We've all got a dozen or so friends, haven't we? And when we're drunk we philosophise well into the night on an array of subjects ranging from what happened before the Big Bang to who would win a fight between a vampire and zombie, to what's the most compromising position to be caught in, but we're hardly going to be extolled in 60 or 70 years' time as the Heat Generation or the Cheat Generation or the Street Generation, are we?

The Tweet Generation, maybe, but that's about all.

So what was it about these few guys? Well, they wrote about what they did, and what they did was quite revolutionary back then. They went On the Road, and it was Jack Kerouac's book that turned the tide. #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Subjects quotes by Edwin Muir
#35. Kindness and courage can repair time's faults, And serving him breeds patience and courtesy In us, light sojourners and passing subjects. #Quote by Edwin Muir
Subjects quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#36. In one experiment, for example, Latane and Darley
had a student alone in a room stage an epileptic fit. When
there was just one person nest door, listening, that person
rushed to the student's aid 85 percent of the time. But
when subjects thought that there were four others also
overhearing the seizure, they came to the student's aid only
31 percent of the time. In another experiment, people who
saw smoke seeping out from under a doorway would report
it 75 percent of the time when they were on their own, but
the incident would be reported only 38 percent of the time
when they were in a group. When people are in a group, in
other words, responsibility for acting is diffused. They
assume that someone else will make the call, or they assume
that because no one else is acting, the apparent problem -
the seizure-like sounds from the other room, the smoke
from the door - isn't really a problem #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Subjects quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#37. A spectre is haunting Western academia ( ... ), the spectre of the Cartesian subject. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Subjects quotes by Gloria Swanson
#38. My sculpture is very personal; for years my subjects were family and close, close friends. #Quote by Gloria Swanson
Subjects quotes by Charlotte Gainsbourg
#39. I have ideas of subjects and atmospheres that I love. I either want to go in a tougher, stronger direction or do the opposite: simple ballads. #Quote by Charlotte Gainsbourg
Subjects quotes by Havilah Babcock
#40. The unvarnished truth is that a trained dog is a perishable commodity. Few things are so subject to deterioration. It is almost as hard-and it takes almost as good a hunter-to keep a dog good as to make one as good. Eternal vigilance is the price of a good bird dog, regardless of who you are, or where and how virtuously you live. #Quote by Havilah Babcock
Subjects quotes by Roland Barthes
#41. The gesture of the amorous embrace seems to fulfill, for a time, the subject's dream of total union with the loved being: The longing for consummation with the other ... #Quote by Roland Barthes
Subjects quotes by Robert Motherwell
#42. Any incentive to paint is as good as any other. There is no poor subject. #Quote by Robert Motherwell
Subjects quotes by Kalyan C. Kankanala
#43. All inventions are not patentable, and all patented subjects are not inventions. #Quote by Kalyan C. Kankanala
Subjects quotes by Jonathan Mayhew
#44. Common tyrants, and public oppressors, are not intitled to obedience from their subjects, by virtue of any thing here laid down by the inspired apostle. #Quote by Jonathan Mayhew
Subjects quotes by William Zinsser
#45. Ultimately the product that any writer has to sell is not the subject being written about, but who he or she is. #Quote by William Zinsser
Subjects quotes by G.M.W. Wemyss
#46. There are two primary strains in the Conservative Party: grocers, and grandees. … By 'grandees' and 'grocers', I am not referring to social class or any of that; nor do I refer to the Worshipful Company of Grocers, all cloves and camels. I refer rather to two fundamental positions within the Conservative Party, regardless of one's antecedents. … A grandee Conservative sees the country as a village: a village of which he and his party, when in government, act the Squire. As the Squire, the grandee moves jovially amongst his tenants in their tied cottages, dispensing largesse and reproof…. There are two problems with this model. The first is that HMG is not the Squire and the subjects of the Crown are not the smocked tenantry of the government of the day. The second is that these principles – or instincts, as one can hardly call them principles – however different they may be to the fiercely held maxims of Labour old and new, lead in the end to the same statist solutions as those the Left proposes, and to accepting and 'managing' statism when a Conservative government succeeds a Labour one. It is the grocers who will always and rightly attempt to roll back the State and its reach in favour of liberty. #Quote by G.M.W. Wemyss
Subjects quotes by Gaston Bachelard
#47. Empirical description involves enslavement to the object by decreeing passivity on the part of the subject. #Quote by Gaston Bachelard
Subjects quotes by David McRaney
#48. When you fear you will confirm a negative stereotype, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy not because the stereotype is true, but because you can't stop worrying that you could become an example proving it.
This self-fulfilling prophecy, being only a matter of perception, can be easily sublimated. Another study by Steele measured the math abilities of men versus women. When the questions were easy, the women and men performed the same. When they were difficult, the women's scores plummeted lower than did those of their male peers. When they ran the tests again with new participants, but this time before handing out the problems told the subjects that men and women tended to perform equally on the exam, the scores leveled out. The women performed just as well as did the men. The power of the stereotype--women are bad at math--was nullified. #Quote by David McRaney
Subjects quotes by Istvan Aranyosi
#49. Evans-Pritchard's confession reveals the way the power advantage of the subject whose definition of a situation prevails in the larger social context (in this case the majority of the Azande) shapes the environment and behavioral constraints that impact the subject who, although does not define the situation the same way, has to behave according to the former subject's definition in order to obtain the needed resources (in this case Evans-Pritchard, who is interested in gaining knowledge of the social organization of the Azande). For Evans-Pritchard, while living among the Azande, the actual world is as if there were magical forces around, true oracles and evil witches, as his whole daily life is structured around those nonexistent entities. #Quote by Istvan Aranyosi
Subjects quotes by Paul Davies
#50. No attempt to explain the world, either scientifically or theologically, can be considered successful until it accounts for the paradoxical conjunction of the temporal and the atemporal, of being and becoming. And no subject conforms this paradoical conjuction more starkly than the origin of the universe. #Quote by Paul Davies
Subjects quotes by Jane Austen
#51. Books
oh! no. I am sure we never read the same, or not with the same
feelings."
"I am sorry you think so; but if that be the case, there can at least be
no want of subject. We may compare our different opinions. #Quote by Jane Austen
Subjects quotes by Julian Schnabel
#52. Some people might think that the paintings are involved with a mythic - not just subject matter - but a certain sort of physical space that the paintings occupy ... like personages. #Quote by Julian Schnabel
Subjects quotes by Marguerite Gardiner, Countess Of Blessington
#53. Despotism subjects a nation to one tyrant; democracy, to many. #Quote by Marguerite Gardiner, Countess Of Blessington
Subjects quotes by Cheikh Anta Diop
#54. By the Middle Ages… the introduction of the Trivium was well-known: SÂDI, an educated black from Tombouctou, author of the well-known work entitled, 'Tarikh es-Soudan' cites amongst the subjects that he mastered, logic, dialection, grammar, rhetoric, not to mention law and other disciplines...the long lists of subjects studied and the lettered African intellectuals who taught them at the University of Tombouctou… #Quote by Cheikh Anta Diop
Subjects quotes by Walker Percy
#55. Catastrophe as Catalyst in the Ontology of Joy, or Hurricane Parties on the Gulf Coast during Hurricane Camille: An In-depth Study of Eleven Victims Who Elected to Stay Compared with Eleven Random Control Subjects Who Elected to Leave"? #Quote by Walker Percy
Subjects quotes by Roy DeCarava
#56. It's the not the subject that interests me as much as my perception of the subject. #Quote by Roy DeCarava
Subjects quotes by Andrew Weil
#57. I tried to change the conventional paradigm, for example, by insisting on the reality of mind-body interaction, by stressing the importance of natural therapies, by focusing attention on lifestyle issues, by looking at worthwhile aspects of alternative medicine. Many people have been threatened by that. Doctors especially tend to think that they know everything about the human body, and don't realize that medical education has really omitted many very important subjects. #Quote by Andrew Weil
Subjects quotes by L. Ron Hubbard
#58. Every separate sector of artistic creation has its own basic rules ... data which govern it. They are contained in the textbooks on these subjects. A professional knows the rules of the game as a matter of course so that he can achieve, in the upper strata above that, a high quality of art. #Quote by L. Ron Hubbard
Subjects quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#59. All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Subjects quotes by John Stuart Mill
#60. All attempts by the State to bias the conclusions of its citizens on disputed subjects, are evil. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Subjects quotes by Adam Smith
#61. We rarely hear, it has been said, of the combinations [that is, unions or colluding organizations] of masters, though frequently of those of workmen. But whoever imagines, upon this account, that masters rarely combine, is as ignorant of the world as of the subject. Masters are always and everywhere in a sort of tacit, but constant and uniform combination, not to raise the wages of labor above their actual price. #Quote by Adam Smith
Subjects quotes by Frank Gohlke
#62. When a photographer chooses a subject, he or she is making a claim on the interest and attention of future viewers, a prediction about what will be thought to have been important. #Quote by Frank Gohlke
Subjects quotes by Roni Horn
#63. Usually, the subject matter of the image is not the subject of the work. #Quote by Roni Horn
Subjects quotes by Deyth Banger
#64. Science/horror/Non-Fiction/Technology/Music/Games/Space... these are the subjects of future. The other again will develop but not with such speed like these here. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Subjects quotes by Janet Malcolm
#65. Society mediates between the extremes of, on the one hand, intolerably strict morality and, on the other, dangerously anarchic permissiveness through an unspoken agreement whereby we are given leave to bend the rules of the strictest morality, provided we do so quietly and discreetly. Hypocrisy is the grease that keeps society functioning in an agreeable way, by allowing for human fallibility and reconciling the seemingly irreconcilable human needs for order and pleasure. When Buckley and Wambaugh said bluntly that it's all right to deceive subjects, they breached the contract whereby you never come right out and admit you have stretched the rules for your own benefit. You do it and shut up about it, and hope you don't get caught, because if you are caught no one - or no one who has any sense - will come forward and say he has done the same thing himself. #Quote by Janet Malcolm
Subjects quotes by James Meade
#66. My job was to teach the whole corpus of economic theory, but there were two subjects in which I was especially interested, namely, the economics of mass unemployment and international economics. #Quote by James Meade
Subjects quotes by Sam Harris
#67. The sense that we are unified subjects is a fiction, produced by a multitude of separate processes and structures of which we are not aware and over which we exert no conscious control. #Quote by Sam Harris
Subjects quotes by Max Weber
#68. The capitalistic economy of the present day is an immense cosmos into which the individual is born, and which presents itself to him, at least as an individual, as an unalterable order of things in which he must live. It forces the individual, in so far as he is involved in the system of market relationships, to conform to capitalistic rules of action, The manufacturer who in the long run acts counter to these norms, will just as inevitably be eliminated from the economic scene as the worker who cannot or will not adapt himself to them will be thrown into the streets without a job.

Thus the capitalism of to-day, which has come to dominate economic life, educates and selects the economic subjects which it needs through a process of economic survival of the fittest. But here one can easily see the limits of the concept of selection as a means of historical explanation. In order that a manner of life so well adapted to the peculiarities of capitalism could be selected at all, i.e. should come to dominate others, it had to originate somewhere, and not in isolated individuals alone, but as a way of life common to whole groups of men. This origin is what really needs explanation. #Quote by Max Weber
Subjects quotes by Willow Bay
#69. On the Web no subject is sacrosanct. No one, from icon to unknown, is off-limits. #Quote by Willow Bay
Subjects quotes by Woody Allen
#70. I'm sure there are people in Hollywood, whose main drive in film is to make money, who will feel that any use of the word hijacking or any reference to anything violent or remotely associated with the terrible tragedy that occurred will lose customers for them. And that will be the only criterion that will matter and so they'll force the minions that work for them to remove these things from their movies, or not make movies about that subject. #Quote by Woody Allen
Subjects quotes by Saint Basil
#71. The hairsplitting difference between formed and unformed makes no difference to us. Whoever deliberately commits abortion is subject to the penalty for homicide. #Quote by Saint Basil
Subjects quotes by Nick Miller
#72. But to write it well and write the time well, you must learn to love your subjects to their core, even if you hate them, because, as a writer in the present, they're your only beautiful muses in this world. I'm quite convinced that very few, if any, can do it alone. Jake, you must understand something ... you must understand that momentary rage is good, but that abiding hate is ruinous. Don't hide from people in hate when you can rage silently in their presence. Rage means you're alive. Rage brings you closer to the truth. Misanthropes have nothing to write about, because they're already dead, and writing is for the living. #Quote by Nick Miller
Subjects quotes by Colin A. Ross
#73. The Study proves that such experiments resulted in serious damage to study subjects and their children. Finally, the Tuskeegee Syphilis Study proves that considerable external pressure is often required before the medical profession takes the necessary action to terminate such experimentation. #Quote by Colin A. Ross
Subjects quotes by Bill Vaughan
#74. Most new things are not good, and die an early death; but those which push themselves forward and by slow degrees force themselves on the attention of mankind are the unconscious productions of human wisdom, and must have honest consideration, and must not be made the subject of unreasoning prejudice. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Subjects quotes by Jean Hanff Korelitz
#75. My first three novels were all the subjects of intensely exciting flurries of calls from producers and even stars' production companies, and once someone actually hired a screenwriter to adapt one of my books - but it all came to nothing, so I tried not to get too excited when a Hollywood suitor came calling for 'Admission,' my fourth novel. #Quote by Jean Hanff Korelitz
Subjects quotes by Theodosius Dobzhansky
#76. Evolutionary plasticity can be purchased only at the ruthlessly dear price of continuously sacrificing some individuals to death from unfavourable mutations. Bemoaning this imperfection of nature has, however, no place in a scientific treatment of this subject. #Quote by Theodosius Dobzhansky
Subjects quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#77. However, not only are fortunes equal in America, equality extends to some degree to intelligence itself. I do not think that there is a single country in the world where, in proportion to the population, there are so few ignorant and, at the same time, so few educated individuals as in America. Primary education is available to all; secondary is within reach of no one, which can be explained quite easily as the inevitable result, so to speak, of my argument above. Almost all Americans enjoy a life of comfort and can, therefore, obtain the first elements of human knowledge. In America there are few rich people; therefore, all Americans have to learn the skills of a profession which demands a period of apprenticeship. Thus America can devote to general learning only the early years of life. At fifteen, they begin a career; their education ends most often when ours begins. If education is pursued beyond that point, it is directed only towards specialist subjects with a profitable return in mind. Science is studied as if it were a job and only those branches are taken up which have a recognized and immediate usefulness. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Subjects quotes by John Climacus
#78. Someone who is elated with wine speaks the truth on all subjects, even without meaning to. In the same way, anyone who is inebriated with the spirit of penitence will never be able to tell lies. #Quote by John Climacus
Subjects quotes by Oliver Goldsmith
#79. I have known a German Prince with more titles than subjects, and a Spanish nobleman with more names than shirts. #Quote by Oliver Goldsmith
Subjects quotes by Gene Sharp
#80. The degree of liberty or tyranny in any government is in large degree a reflection of the relative determination of the subjects to be free and their willingness and ability to resist efforts to enslave them. #Quote by Gene Sharp
Subjects quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#81. Aside from the obvious, Francesca, what do you want in return for supplying information?" Bones asked, getting back to the subject. "You to take me," she replied at once. "Not gonna happen!" I spat, squeezing him possessively. Three sets of widened eyes fixed on me. That's when I realized that what I had a firm grip on was no longer his hand. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Subjects quotes by Howard Pyle
#82. Project your mind into your subject until you actually live in it. #Quote by Howard Pyle
Subjects quotes by William Shakespeare
#83. As love is full of unbefitting strains,
All wanton as a child, skipping and vain,
Form'd by the eye and therefore, like the eye,
Full of strange shapes, of habits and of forms,
Varying in subjects as the eye doth roll
To every varied object in his glance #Quote by William Shakespeare
Subjects quotes by Henry Thomas Hamblin
#84. Nothing is too small a subject for prayer, because nothing is too small to be the subject of God's care. #Quote by Henry Thomas Hamblin
Subjects quotes by Gautama Buddha
#85. Thus all things are subject to death, sorrow and suffering. I became aware that I too was of the same nature, the nature of beginning and end. What if I searched for that which underlies all creation, that which is nirvana, the perfect freedom from unconditioned existence? #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Subjects quotes by Suzy Kassem
#86. Always praise your kid even if he/she is unresponsive to learning. By insulting them and putting them down, you will only push them away and make them feel inadequate around other kids. Have faith that your child's brain is an evolving planet that rotates at its own speed. It will naturally be attracted to or repel certain subjects. Be patient. Just as there are ugly ducklings that turn into swans, there are rebellious kids that turn into serious innovators and hardcore intellectuals. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Subjects quotes by Jean Piaget
#87. I engage my subjects in conversation, patterned after psychiatric questioning, with the aim of discovering something about the reasoning underlying their right but especially their wrong answers. #Quote by Jean Piaget
Subjects quotes by Abraham Verghese
#88. The incredible cinematography makes 'A Walk to Beautiful' almost like a poem; there is a tenderness on display that seems to emanate from the camera. There is also great sensitivity to the women whose stories are being told - never did I have a sense of the subjects being exploited. #Quote by Abraham Verghese
Subjects quotes by Edmund White
#89. Nobody in France would ever say 'He's a Jewish novelist' or 'She's a black novelist,' even though people do write about those subjects. It would look absurd to a French person to go into a bookstore and see a 'Gay Studies' section. #Quote by Edmund White
Subjects quotes by Alice Walker
#90. Creation is a sustained period of bliss, even though the subject can still be very sad. Because there's the triumph of coming through and understanding that you have, and that you did it the way only you could do it. You didn't do it the way somebody told you to do it. #Quote by Alice Walker
Subjects quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#91. Economics is a subject profoundly conducive to cliche, resonant with boredom. On few topics is an American audience so practiced in turning off its ears and minds. And none can say that the response is ill advised. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Subjects quotes by Leigh Steinberg
#92. School gives you the freedom to explore different philosophies, religions, aspects of yourself, and subjects. #Quote by Leigh Steinberg
Subjects quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#93. To learn six subjects without remembering how they were learnt does nothing to ease the approach to a seventh; to have learnt and remembered the art of learning makes the approach to every subject an open door. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Subjects quotes by Isabel Bishop
#94. The nude, if you tackle it, is a very fascinating subject, especially for a woman. #Quote by Isabel Bishop
Subjects quotes by Elmer Davis
#95. One of the things that is wrong with America is that everybody who has done anything at all in his own field is expected to be an authority on every subject under the sun. #Quote by Elmer Davis
Subjects quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#96. We should treat our minds, that is, ourselves, as innocent and ingenuous children, whose guardians we are, and be careful what objects and what subjects we thrust on their attention. Read not the Times. Read the Eternities.. Knowledge does not come to us by details, but in flashes of light from heaven. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Subjects quotes by James Madison
#97. No man can be a competent legislator who does not add to an upright intention and a sound judgment a certain degree of knowledge of the subject on which he is to legislate. #Quote by James Madison
Subjects quotes by Francois Rabelais
#98. Pantagruel was telling me that he believed the queen had given the symbolic word used among her subjects to denote sovereign good cheer, when she said to her tabachins, A panacea. #Quote by Francois Rabelais
Subjects quotes by Bill Keller
#99. The Democrats generally recoil from the subject of entitlements. #Quote by Bill Keller
Subjects quotes by Caleb Deschanel
#100. The great photographers of life - like Diane Arbus and Walker Evans and Robert Frank - all must have had some special quality: a personality of nurturing and non-judgment that frees the subjects to reveal their most intimate reality. It really is what makes a great photographer, every bit as much as understanding composition and lighting. #Quote by Caleb Deschanel
Subjects quotes by David McCullough
#101. Medical Inquiries and Observations upon the Diseases of the Mind. For years Rush had been investigating the causes of and remedies for madness and other "diseases" of the mind. "The subjects of them have hitherto been enveloped in mystery," he wrote to Adams. "I have endeavored to bring them down to the level of all other diseases of the human body, and to show that the mind and body are moved by the same causes and subject to the same laws. #Quote by David McCullough
Subjects quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#102. How much more reasonable is it to say with the sage Plato, that the perfect happiness of a state consists in the subjects obeying their prince, the prince obeying the laws, and the laws being equitable and always directed to the good of the public? #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Subjects quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#103. In addition to all that, a man may have any opinions he likes without that being any of the sovereign's business. Having no standing in the other world, the sovereign has no concern with what may lie in wait for its subjects in the life to come, provided they are good citizens in this life. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Subjects quotes by Becca Fitzpatrick
#104. You're a guardian angel now." I was still too much in awe to wrap my mind around it, but at the same time I felt amazement, curiosity ... happiness.
"I'm your guardian angel," he said.
"I get my very own guardian angel? What, exactly, is your job description?"
"Guard your body." His smile tipped higher. "I take my job seriously, which means I'm going to need to get acquainted with the subject matter on a personal level. #Quote by Becca Fitzpatrick
Subjects quotes by Phyllis A. Whitney
#105. It's hard to come up with a 'quote' about myself. Perhaps I could say that most of my writing has been concerned with understanding between people. Whether of different races, or religions, or even in the same family I tried in my books ... to deal with the subject of understanding the other fellow. #Quote by Phyllis A. Whitney
Subjects quotes by Elizabeth F. Loftus
#106. A laboratory analogy to repression can be found in an experiment by A.F. Zeller.
Zeller arranged a situation so that one group of students underwent an unhappy "failure" experience right after they had successfully learned a list of nonsense syllables. When tested later, these subjects showed much poorer recall of the nonsense syllables compared to a control group, who had not experienced failure. When this same "failure" group was later allowed to succeed on the same task that they had earlier failed, their recall showed tremendous improvement. This experiment indicates that when the reason for the repression is removed, when material to be remembered is no longer associated with negative effects, a person no longer experiences retrieval failure. #Quote by Elizabeth F. Loftus
Subjects quotes by Charles Birch
#107. (The animal rights movement) should be supported by all Christians. In an ecological universe, every created entity has intrinsic value because all are subjects as well as objects. As we cover more and more of the earth with our factories/ highways/ towns/parking lots, we annihilate more and more plants and animals. #Quote by Charles Birch
Subjects quotes by John C. Calhoun
#108. Government has no right to control individual liberty beyond what is necessary to the safety and well-being of society. Such is the boundary which separates the power of the government and the liberty of the citizen or subject in the political state. #Quote by John C. Calhoun
Subjects quotes by Erika M. Anderson
#109. I didn't want make art about the internet at all. It's a really hard subject to take on and I did not set out to do that. But, it was real and it was what was happening. #Quote by Erika M. Anderson
Subjects quotes by William Shakespeare
#110. We are time's subjects, and time bids be gone. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Subjects quotes by Gretchen Rubin
#111. Like most people, I have several pet subjects - that may or may not be interesting to other people. Don't get me started on happiness, or habits, or children's literature, or Winston Churchill, unless you really want to talk about it. #Quote by Gretchen Rubin
Subjects quotes by James Whitbread Lee Glaisher
#112. [Lord Brougham's writings on the bee's cell contain] as striking examples of bad reasoning as are often to be met with in writings related to mathematical subjects. #Quote by James Whitbread Lee Glaisher
Subjects quotes by William Henry Hudson
#113. We know that our senses are subject to decay, that from our middle years they are decaying all the time; but happily it is as if we didn't know and didn't believe. #Quote by William Henry Hudson
Subjects quotes by Sara Genn
#114. Artists and their subjects are the star-crossed lovers of the world. They recognize each other on impact. #Quote by Sara Genn
Subjects quotes by Ibrahim Ibrahim
#115. To be initiated into Belief is neither done through abstaining from certain types of tangible substances (e.g., Alcohol) nor through abiding with certain dress codes (e.g., Head Cover), it is something only the baby completely -yet intrinsically- understands. A Truth that repelled Pharaoh into the dustbin of history and his Jew subjects into the fringes of mankind. #Quote by Ibrahim Ibrahim
Subjects quotes by Meryl Streep
#116. I'm a pain in the ass to all of the costume designers with whom I work because I have very strong feelings about the subject. #Quote by Meryl Streep
Subjects quotes by Joseph Addison
#117. One would think that the larger the company is in which we are engaged, the greater variety of thoughts and subjects would be started into discourse; but, instead of this we find that conversation is never so much straightened and confined, as in numerous assemblies. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Subjects quotes by Ingrid Newkirk
#118. That's what the Nazis did, isn't it? Treated those "others" they thought subhuman by making them lab subjects and so on. Even the Nazis didn't eat the objects of their derision. #Quote by Ingrid Newkirk
Subjects quotes by James Madison
#119. It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated. #Quote by James Madison
Subjects quotes by Eleftherios Venizelos
#120. The European policy is invariably the maintenance of the status quo, and you will do nothing for the subject races unless we, by taking initiative, make you realize that helping us against the Turks is the lesser of the evils. #Quote by Eleftherios Venizelos
Subjects quotes by Christopher Wren
#121. Mathematical demonstrations being built upon the impregnable Foundations of Geometry and Arithmetick are the only truths that can sink into the Mind of Man, void of all Uncertainty; and all other Discourses participate more or less of Truth according as their Subjects are more or less capable of Mathematical Demonstration. #Quote by Christopher Wren
Subjects quotes by Ruth E. Carter
#122. My favorite part about costume designing is the artistry of the job. You meet with a director and a visionary to discuss ideas. You research the characters and figure out the components of their look through your own vision. You create a color palette for a film, television or stage medium and discuss it with the director of photography who then lights your colored subjects. #Quote by Ruth E. Carter
Subjects quotes by Steven Erikson
#123. Write the following: "Private missive, from Lieutenant Master-Sergeant Field Quartermaster Pores, to Fist Kindly. Warmest salutations and congratulations on your promotion, sir. As one might observe from your advancement and, indeed, mine, cream doth rise, etc. In as much as I am ever delighted in corresponding with you, discussing all maner of subjects in all possible idioms, alas, this subject is rather more official in nature. In short, we are faced with a crisis of the highest order. Accordignly, I humbly seek your advice and would suggest we arrange a most private meeting at the earliest convenience. Yours affectionately, Pores." Got that, Himble?'
'Yes sir'
'Please read it back to me.'
'"Pores to Kindly meet in secret when?"'
'Excellent, Dispatch at once, Himble #Quote by Steven Erikson
Subjects quotes by Walter J. Phillips
#124. It is often said that the modern exhibition has ruined painting. It is an unfortunate fact that it does encourage competition, so that, to attract attention to his work, an artist is tempted to descend to sensationalism, whether it is expressed by strong colour, grotesque handling, unusual subject, or sheer size. #Quote by Walter J. Phillips
Subjects quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#125. Just as I sit down to meditate, all the vilest subjects in the world come up. The whole thing is nauseating. Why should the mind think thoughts I do not want it to think? I am as it were a slave to the mind. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Subjects quotes by Will Rogers
#126. Everyone is ignorant, only on different subjects. #Quote by Will Rogers
Subjects quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#127. There is no subject so old that something new cannot be said about it. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Subjects quotes by Roger Scruton
#128. Cognitive states of mind are seldom addictive, since they depend upon exploration of the world, and the individual encounter with the individual object, whose appeal is outside the subject's control. Addiction arises when the subject has full control over a pleasure and can ponder it at will. It is primarily a matter of sensory pleasure, and involves a kind of short-circuiting of the pleasure network. Addiction is characterized by a loss of the emotional dynamic that would otherwise govern an outward-directed, cognitively creative life. #Quote by Roger Scruton
Subjects quotes by Ernest Gellner
#129. A cleric who loses his faith abandons his calling; a philosopher who loses his redefines his subject. #Quote by Ernest Gellner
Subjects quotes by Andrew Johnson
#130. Outside of the Constitution we have no legal authority more than private citizens, and within it we have only so much as that instrument gives us. This broad principle limits all our functions and applies to all subjects. #Quote by Andrew Johnson
Subjects quotes by Francis Bacon
#131. I think that one of the things is that, if you are going to decide to be a painter, you have got to decide that you are not going to be afraid of making a fool of yourself. I think another thing is to be able to find subjects which really absorb you to try and do. I feel that without a subject you automatically go back into decoration because you haven't got the subject which is always eating into you to bring it back - and the greatest art always returns you to the vulnerability of the human situation. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Subjects quotes by David Sedaris
#132. I don't write about sex because it's not really my subject. I love it when other people write about it, but it's not my subject, and I don't want anyone I've had sex with to write about it. Plus, you're in front of an audience, and they picture wherever you're writing about. I'm 52; no one in the audience wants to picture that. #Quote by David Sedaris
Subjects quotes by Ellsworth Kelly
#133. Everything that I saw became something to be made, and it had to be exactly as it was, with nothing added. It was a new freedom: there was no longer the need to compose. The subject was there already made, and I could take from everything. It all belonged to me: a glass roof of a factory, with its broken and patched panels, lines on a road map, a corner of a Braque painting, paper fragments in the street. It was all the same: anything goes. #Quote by Ellsworth Kelly
Subjects quotes by Noam Chomsky
#134. In my own professional work I have touched on a variety of different fields. I've done work in mathematical linguistics, for example, without any professional credentials in mathematics; in this subject I am completely self-taught, and not very well taught. But I've often been invited by universities to speak on mathematical linguistics at mathematics seminars and colloquia. No one has ever asked me whether I have the appropriate credentials to speak on these subjects; the mathematicians couldn't care less. What they want to know is what I have to say. No one has ever objected to my right to speak, asking whether I have a doctor's degree in mathematics, or whether I have taken advanced courses in the subject. That would never have entered their minds. They want to know whether I am right or wrong, whether the subject is interesting or not, whether better approaches are possible… the discussion dealt with the subject, not with my right to discuss it.
But on the other hand, in discussion or debate concerning social issues or American foreign policy…. The issue is constantly raised, often with considerable venom. I've repeatedly been challenged on grounds of credentials, or asked, what special training do I have that entitles you to speak on these matters. The assumption is that people like me, who are outsiders from a professional viewpoint, are not entitled to speak on such things.
Compare mathematics and the political sciences… it's quite striking. In mathematics, #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Subjects quotes by Amy Ziering
#135. One of the top challenges is the fact that you are dealing with survivors. Every time you deal with a documentary film subject it is fraught with obvious minefields but when you are dealing with a population that is severely traumatized and trying to recover from that trauma there is an extra level of vigilance and care and attention that has to be implemented all the time at every level. #Quote by Amy Ziering
Subjects quotes by Sally Ride
#136. I liked math - that was my favorite subject - and I was very interested in astronomy and in physical science. #Quote by Sally Ride
Subjects quotes by Marisha Pessl
#137. Funnily enough, it is the subject one dreads talking about at length one ends up talking about at length, often without the slightest provocation. #Quote by Marisha Pessl
Subjects quotes by William Carlos Williams
#138. Dear Mama: The reason I didn't write last Sunday was because I was out of town. My friend Pound invited me to spend Saturday and Sunday with him … His parents are very nice people and have always been exceptionally kind to me. Mrs. Pound had prepared a fine meal … After supper Pound and I went to his room where we had a long talk on subjects that I love yet have not time to study and which he is making a life work of. That is literature, and the drama and the classics, also a little philosophy. He, Pound, is a fine fellow; he is the essence of optimism and has a cast-iron faith that is something to admire. If he ever does get blue nobody knows it, so he is just the man for me. But not one person in a thousand likes him, and a great many people detest him and why? Because he is so darned full of conceits and affectation. He is really a brilliant talker and thinker but delights in making himself just exactly what he is not: a laughing boor. His friends must be all patience in order to find him out and even then you must not let him know it, for he will immediately put on some artificial mood and be really unbearable. It is too bad, for he loves to be liked, yet there is some quality in him which makes him too proud to try to please people. I am sure his only fault is an exaggeration of a trait that in itself is good and in every way admirable. He is afraid of being taken in if he trusts his really tender heart to mercies of a cruel crowd and so keeps it hidden and trusts no one #Quote by William Carlos Williams
Subjects quotes by Albert J. Nock
#139. It would seem that in Paine's view the code of government should be that of the legendary King Pausole, who prescribed but two laws for his subjects, the first being, Hurt no man , and the second, Then do as you please. #Quote by Albert J. Nock
Subjects quotes by Ronnie James Dio
#140. The best subjects are always people, who never fail to amaze me by their unpredictability. #Quote by Ronnie James Dio
Subjects quotes by James C. Scott
#141. Given a choice between patterns of subsistence that are relatively unfavorable to the cultivator but which yield a greater return in manpower or grain to the state and those patterns that benefit the cultivator but deprive the state, the ruler will choose the former every time. The ruler, then, maximizes the state-accessible product, if necessary, at the expense of the overall wealth of the realm and its subjects. #Quote by James C. Scott
Subjects quotes by Janette Rallison
#142. So what were your favorite subjects in school?"
"School?" He leaned back in his chair as though he needed the extra space to think about it. "Probably math. It always made sense. Unlike English, economics, and girls."
"And exactly how do you plan on taking over the free world if you don't understand economics?"
"I'll hire advisers. I'll hire you, in fact."
"Okay. Let me know when your army of junior high zombies is ready. #Quote by Janette Rallison
Subjects quotes by Susan Sontag
#143. Photography is an elegiac art, a twilight art. Most subjects photographed are, just by virtue of being photographed, touched with pathos. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Subjects quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#144. Talent is the capacity to direct concentrated attention upon the subject: the gift of seeing what others have not seen. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Subjects quotes by David Douglas Duncan
#145. There's nobody between you and the print. Nobody. It's you and the subject and the final print. And if you get it published that way, you've said it. #Quote by David Douglas Duncan
Subjects quotes by Willem De Kooning
#146. The idea of space is given to the artist to change if he can. The subject matter in the abstract is space. #Quote by Willem De Kooning
Subjects quotes by Paul Davies
#147. Psychologists have devised some ingenious ways to help unpack the human "now." Consider how we run those jerky movie frames together into a smooth and continuous stream. This is known as the "phi phenomenon." The essence of phi shows up in experiments in a darkened room where two small spots are briefly lit in quick succession, at slightly separated locations. What the subjects report seeing is not a succession of spots, but a single spot moving continuously back and forth. Typically, the spots are illuminated for 150 milliseconds separated by an interval of fifty milliseconds. Evidently the brain somehow "fills in" the fifty-millisecond gap. Presumably this "hallucination" or embellishment occurs after the event, because until the second light flashes the subject cannot know the light is "supposed" to move. This hints that the human now is not simultaneous with the visual stimulus, but a bit delayed, allowing time for the brain to reconstruct a plausible fiction of what has happened a few milliseconds before.

In a fascinating refinement of the experiment, the first spot is colored red, the second green. This clearly presents the brain with a problem. How will it join together the two discontinuous experiences - red spot, green spot - smoothly? By blending the colors seamlessly into one another? Or something else? In fact, subjects report seeing the spot change color abruptly in the middle of the imagined trajectory, and are even able to indicate exactly where usin #Quote by Paul Davies
Subjects quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#148. It may be observed, that provinces amid the vicissitudes to which they are subject, pass from order into confusion, and afterward recur to a state of order again; for the nature of mundane affairs not allowing them to continue in an even course, when they have arrived at their greatest perfection, they soon begin to decline. In the same manner, having been reduced by disorder, and sunk to their utmost state of depression, unable to descend lower, they, of necessity, reascend; and thus from good they gradually decline to evil, and from evil again return to good. The reason is, that valor produces peace; peace, repose; repose, disorder; disorder, ruin; so from disorder order springs; from order virtue, and from this, glory and good fortune. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Subjects quotes by Philip Zimbardo
#149. The [Stanford Prison Experiment] was readily approved by the Human Subjects Research committee because it seemed like college kids playing cops and robbers, it was an experiment that anyone could quit at any time and minimal safeguards were in place. You must distinguish hind sight from fore sight, knowing what you know now after the study is quite different from what most people imagined might happen before the study began. #Quote by Philip Zimbardo
Subjects quotes by George Orwell
#150. To talk, simply to talk! It sounds so little, and how much it is! When you have existed to the brink of middle age in bitter loneliness, among people to whom your true opinion on every subject on earth is blasphemy, the need to talk is the greatest of all needs. #Quote by George Orwell
Subjects quotes by Jane Austen
#151. At any rate, it is safer to leave people to their own devices on such subjects. Everybody likes to go their own way
to chuse their own time and manner of devotion. The obligation of attendance, the formality, the restraint, the length of time
altogether it is a formidable thing. #Quote by Jane Austen
Subjects quotes by Muhammad Ali
#152. My lectures, based on Islamic teachings, were on various subjects. Some of the titles were, 'The Intoxication of Life,' 'The Purpose of Life,' 'The Real Cause of Man's Distress,' 'The Journey to the Goal in Life,' and, one of my favorites, 'The Heart of Man.' They contained important insights that spoke to something deep inside me. #Quote by Muhammad Ali
Subjects quotes by Anonymous
#153. Three of the most important factors in determining to what degree a government's power will be controlled or uncontrolled therefore are: (1) the relative desire of the populace to impose limits on the government's power; (2) the relative strength of the subjects' independent organizations and institutions to withdraw collectively the sources of power; and (3) the population's relative ability to withhold their consent and assistance. #Quote by Anonymous
Subjects quotes by Joe Scarborough
#154. I see it all the time in politics. If a candidate gets caught in a lie, he quickly tries to change the subject by throwing more mud at his opponent. The mud keeps flying until some of the slanderous material sticks. #Quote by Joe Scarborough
Subjects quotes by Robert Motherwell
#155. Most painting in the European tradition was painting the mask. Modern art rejected all that. Our subject matter was the person behind the mask. #Quote by Robert Motherwell
Subjects quotes by Susan Cain
#156. The New Groupthink is also practiced in our schools, via an increasingly popular method of instruction called "cooperative" or "small group" learning. In many elementary schools, the traditional rows of seats facing the teacher have been replaced with "pods" of four or more desks pushed together to facilitate countless group learning activities. Even subjects like math and creative writing, which would seem to depend on solo flights of thought, are often taught as group projects. In one fourth-grade classroom I visited, a big sign announced the "Rules for Group Work," including, YOU CAN'T ASK A TEACHER FOR HELP UNLESS EVERYONE IN YOUR GROUP HAS THE SAME QUESTION. #Quote by Susan Cain
Subjects quotes by Beverly Cleary
#157. I think the best teachers had a real interest in the subject they were teaching and a love for children. Some of the teachers were just doing their job, but others had that little extra. They really cared about children and they wore pretty dresses. #Quote by Beverly Cleary
Subjects quotes by Woody Allen
#158. You can learn technological things, you can learn about specific things, but the real problems that people deal with in any subject, existential subjects or romantic subjects, you never learn anything. So you make a fool of yourself when you're 20, you make a fool of yourself at 40, at 60 at 80. The ancient Greeks were dealing with these problems. They screwed up all the time. People do now. #Quote by Woody Allen

Subjects quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#161. When I was a little girl, I used to hide in my closet. The space was dust-covered and dark, and it smelled like mothballs. But it was my sanctuary from the monsters outside. When I got older and I would have to hide, I used to fantasize that I lived in a house where the closets trapped all the monsters and where I would be safe in my bed. That I lived in a house with parents I could look up to and admire, and one day they would become the subjects of a speech I wrote about how they changed my life for the better. I didn't live in that kind of house. But the monsters I hid from shaped who I've become by teaching me that kindness and love are things that should be given freely. They taught me who I never want to be. That's why they're important to me today. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Subjects quotes by Alexis Karpouzos
#162. The world does not consist of subjects and objects, the "subject" and the "object" are metaphysical abstractions of the single and indivisible Wholeness. Man's finite knowledge separates the Whole into parts and studies fragmentarily the beings. The Wholeness is manifested in multiple forms and each form encapsulates the Wholeness #Quote by Alexis Karpouzos
Subjects quotes by George Polya
#163. To teach effectively a teacher must develop a feeling for his subject; he cannot make his students sense its vitality if he does not sense it himself. He cannot share his enthusiasm when he has no enthusiasm to share. How he makes his point may be as important as the point he makes; he must personally feel it to be important. #Quote by George Polya
Subjects quotes by Edan Lepucki
#164. The messiness [in my books] is nothing like an Atwood novel. For me, the deeper subjects are secrets versus intimacy, and how both beget safety but also threaten it. And there is a lot for me about loss, too. #Quote by Edan Lepucki
Subjects quotes by Stephanie Zacharek
#165. [I]t's guilty of the very thing that makes kids hate history as a subject when it's taught badly: The Da Vinci Code makes the past feel like a dull, grainy, faraway thing, instead of something vibrant and alive. #Quote by Stephanie Zacharek
Subjects quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#166. But I must finally realize that I am subject to these sudden transformations. The thing is that I rarely think; a crowd of small metamorphoses accumulate in me without my noticing it, and then, one fine day, a veritable revolution takes place. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Subjects quotes by Samuel Adams
#167. Every one knows that the exercise of military power is forever dangerous to civil rights; and we have had recent instances of violences that have been offer'd to private subjects ... #Quote by Samuel Adams
Subjects quotes by Thomas Watson
#168. To obey God, is not so much our duty - as our privilege; his commands carry food in the mouth of them. He bids us repent - and why? That our sins may be blotted out. Acts 3:19. He commands us to believe - and why? That we may be saved. Acts 16:31. There is love in every command. It is as if a king should bid one of his subjects dig in a gold mine, and then keep the gold for himself. #Quote by Thomas Watson
Subjects quotes by Bunmi Laditan
#169. Story time isn't much better. Imagine sitting in a circle with acquaintances, chanting spells and being drilled on a variety of subjects. "What sound does a duck make?" Who cares? When will I need to know that? How is this knowledge of barnyard animals and their corresponding noises going to improve my life? Toddlers who get up to stretch their legs or explore will be publicly admonished. The participation reward will not be a glazed doughnut, so don't bother. #Quote by Bunmi Laditan
Subjects quotes by Aristotle.
#170. It is also in the interests of the tyrant to make his subjects poor ... the people are so occupied with their daily tasks that they have no time for plotting. #Quote by Aristotle.
Subjects quotes by Al Gore
#171. It's as if we think the laws of physics are subject to debate and amendment and political contributions can sway the laws of physics. #Quote by Al Gore
Subjects quotes by Peter Abrahams
#172. The London I entered was a great bustling metropolitan city at war, an imperial power fighting to hold on to that empire. And the teeming colonial subjects of that empire did not, on the whole, want England to lose that war, but they also did not want the empire to emerge unchanged from it. This, for very many of us, was the hard dilemma. #Quote by Peter Abrahams
Subjects quotes by Matsuo Basho
#173. The haiku that reveals seventy to eighty percent of its subject is good. Those that reveal fifty to sixty percent, we never tire of. #Quote by Matsuo Basho

#175. There is no master without a servant and there is no country without citizens. There can't be leaders without followers or subjects. There is no harvest without sowing. #Quote by David Ssembajjo
Subjects quotes by Emily Dickinson
#176. The minister today preached about death and judgment, and what would become of those who behaved improperly - and somehow it scared me. He preached such an awful sermon I didn't think I should ever see you again until the Judgment Day. The subject of perdition seemed to please him somehow. #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Subjects quotes by Andreas Feininger
#177. Experience has shown that the more fascinating the subject, the less observant the photographer. #Quote by Andreas Feininger
Subjects quotes by John Kenneth Galbraith
#178. If anything is evident about people who manage money, it is that the task attracts a very low level of talent, one that is protected in its highly imperfect profession by the mystery that is thought to enfold the subject of economics in general and of money in particular. #Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Subjects quotes by George Sand
#179. If they are ignorant, they are despised, if learned, mocked. In love they are reduced to the status of courtesans. As wives they are treated more as servants than as companions. Men do not love them: they make use of them, they exploit them, and expect, in that way, to make them subject to the law of fidelity. #Quote by George Sand
Subjects quotes by Frances Hardinge

Subjects quotes by John Von Neumann
#185. If one has really technically penetrated a subject, things that previously seemed in complete contrast, might be purely mathematical transformations of each other. #Quote by John Von Neumann
Subjects quotes by Halford Mackinder
#186. Knowledge is one. Its division into subjects is a concession to human weakness. #Quote by Halford Mackinder
Subjects quotes by Adolf Hitler
#187. I am a German nationalist, that means I am openly committed to my Volkstrum. All of my thoughts and actions belong to it. I am a socialist. I see before me no class or rank, but rather a community of people who are connected by blood, united by language, and subject to the same collective fate. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Subjects quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#188. These children, who are our equals, whom we ought to consider as our models, we treat them as though they were our subjects. They are allowed no will of their own. And have we, then, none ourselves? Whence comes our exclusive right? Is it because we are older and more experienced? Great God! from the height of thy heaven thou beholdest great children and little children, and no others; and thy Son has long since declared which afford thee greatest pleasure. But they believe in him, and hear him not, - that, too, is an old story; and they train their children after their own image, etc. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Subjects quotes by Michael Shermer
#189. Neuroscientist David Comings drew out the larger implications of such hallucinations for the relationship between our rational and spiritual brains:
The psychedelic drugs like DMT often produce a sensation of "contact," of being in the presence of and interaction with a non-human being. Highly intelligent and sophisticated test subjects who knew these feelings were drug-induced nevertheless insisted the contact had really happened. The temporal lobe-limbic system's emotional tape recorder sometimes cannot distinguish between externally generated real events and internally generated non-real experience thus providing a system in which the rational brain and the spiritual brain are not necessarily in conflict. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Subjects quotes by Virginia Graham
#190. On the whole, and providing one is in good spirits and feeling reasonably bright, it is not hard to converse for a short space of time on subjects about which one knows little, and it is indeed often amusing to see how cunningly one can steer the conversational barque, hoisting and lowering her sails, tacking this way and that to avoid reefs, and finally racing feverishly for home with the outboard engine making a loud and cheerful noise. #Quote by Virginia Graham
Subjects quotes by Alan Bennett
#191. To her all books were the same and, as with her subjects, she felt a duty to approach them without prejudice ... Lauren Bacall, Winifred Holtby, Sylvia Plath - who were they? Only be reading could she find out. #Quote by Alan Bennett
Subjects quotes by John Kennedy Toole
#192. Although the style of each varied in crudity, the subjects of the paintings were relatively similar: camellias floating in bowls of water, azaleas tortured into ambitious flower arrangements, magnolias that looked like white windmills. #Quote by John Kennedy Toole
Subjects quotes by Robert Benchley
#193. A child of three cannot raise its chubby fist to its mouth to remove a piece of carpet which it is through eating, without being made the subject of a psychological seminar of child-welfare experts, and written up, along with five hundred other children of three who have put their hands to their mouths for the same reason. #Quote by Robert Benchley

Subjects quotes by Kitty Kelley
#195. The authorized biographers - the ones hand-picked to write the sanitized version of a subject's life - sit up front with the swells while the unauthorized biographer who writes without access or approval gets elbowed to the back of the bus. #Quote by Kitty Kelley
Subjects quotes by R.C. Sproul
#196. What makes art Christian art? Is it simply Christian artists painting biblical subjects like Jeremiah? Or, by attaching a halo, does that suddenly make something Christian art? Must the artist's subject be religious to be Christian? I don't think so. There is a certain sense in which art is its own justification. If art is good art, if it is true art, if it is beautiful art, then it is bearing witness to the Author of the good, the true, and the beautiful #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Subjects quotes by Zadie Smith
#197. English, as a subject, never really got over its upstart nature. It tries to bulk itself up with hopeless jargon and specious complexity, tries to imitate subjects it can never be. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Subjects quotes by Walter Savage Landor
#198. It has been my fortune to love in general those men most who have thought most differently from me, on subjects wherein others pardon no discordance. I think I have no more right to be angry with a man, whose reason has followed up a process different from what mine has, and is satisfied with the result, than with one who has gone to Venice while I am at Siena, and who writes to me that he likes the place. #Quote by Walter Savage Landor
Subjects quotes by Ari Marcopoulos
#199. As my sons went into teenagehood, they started to look like some of the groups of people that I had photographed previously. They started to become like my old subjects. As if, as a photographer, you come around to the same visual points. #Quote by Ari Marcopoulos
Subjects quotes by Groucho Marx
#200. With the possible exception of clothes, beauty salons and Frank Sinatra, there are few subjects all women agree upon. #Quote by Groucho Marx
