Famous quotes containing the words subject matter, matter and/or subject:

    I got quite bored, serving in the bar. Since I was there, the customers wouldn’t talk about women, and with half their subject matter denied them, it was: horses, silence; horses, silence.
    Bernadette Devlin (b. 1947)

    It is not every man who can be a Christian, even in a very moderate sense, whatever education you give him. It is a matter of constitution and temperament, after all. He may have to be born again many times. I have known many a man who pretended to be a Christian, in whom it was ridiculous, for he had no genius for it. It is not every man who can be a free man, even.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The subject does not belong to the world; rather, it is a limit of the world.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951)
