Subjects

Famous quotes containing the word subjects:

    We are the subjects of an experiment which is not a little interesting to me.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Art and religion first; then philosophy; lastly science. That is the order of the great subjects of life, that’s their order of importance.
    Muriel Spark (b. 1918)

    Under the dominion of an idea, which possesses the minds of multitudes, as civil freedom, or the religious sentiment, the power of persons are no longer subjects of calculation. A nation of men unanimously bent on freedom, or conquest, can easily confound the arithmetic of statists, and achieve extravagant actions, out of all proportion to their means; as, the Greeks, the Saracens, the Swiss, the Americans, and the French have done.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
