Matter Quotes

Too many composers become involved in intellectual speculation which seems to matter more to them than the sound that comes out of all this speculation

Louise Talma

It is not funny that anything else should fall down, only that a man should fall down ... Why do we laugh? Because it is a gravely religious matter: it is the Fall of Man. Only man can be absurd: for only man can be dignified.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

The bearing of a child takes nine months, no matter how many women are assigned.

Frederick Phillips Brooks, Jr.

Dealing with Congress is a matter of give and take. The president doesn't get everything he wants, the Congress doesn't get everything they want. But we're finding good common ground. A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about it.

George Walker Bush

Science has a simple faith, which transcends utility. Nearly all men of science, all men of learning for that matter, and men of simple ways too, have it in some form and in some degree. It is the faith that it is the privilege of man to learn to understand, and that this is his mission. If we abandon that mission under stress we shall abandon it forever, for stress will not cease. Knowledge for the sake of understanding, not merely to prevail, that is the essence of our being. None can define its limits, or set its ultimate boundaries.

Vannevar Bush

Art is a concrete and personal and rather childish thing after all no matter what people do to graft it into science and make it sociological and psychological; it is no good at all unless it is let alone to be itself a game of make-believe, or re-production, very exciting and delightful to people who have an ear for it or an eye for it.

Willa Sibert Cather

Nowadays love is a matter of chance, matrimony a matter of money and divorce a matter of course.

Helen Rowland

We are allowed to question people about their politics or ethics and expect them to defend their beliefs, or at least hold their own in any other important matter by recourse to evidence, yet somehow on the massive subject of God and how he might have us behave, all rational discussion must stop the moment we hear 'I believe'.

Derren Victor Brown

It seems silly and churlish to attack others for their private beliefs, unless one is entirely convinced of the greater view that harm is caused by the persistence of that belief in society; but when pressed into engaging on the matter, I recall the question I asked myself many times until I found my own faith breaking down: Bearing in mind we can all utterly convince ourselves of things that are not true and that therefore important truths about the universe must surely always be based on more solid foundations than what my easily fooled, fickle feelings tell me what is it that supports this belief other than my own already-existing conviction?

Derren Victor Brown

No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.

Confucius

There is no hypnotic phenomenon, no matter how remarkable it may appear, which cannot be re-created outside of a hypnotic state through such ordinary devices such as suggestion, hype and the exercise of charisma.

Derren Victor Brown

It doesn't matter how you travel it, it's the same road. It doesn't get any easier when you get bigger, it gets harder. And it will kill you if you let it.

James Joseph Brown

The perfection of any matter, the highest or the lowest, touches on the divine.

Martin Buber

He said that permitting private judgments to turn my duty in the smallest matter would be just like getting a little bit pregnant that the consequences would very soon get beyond me.

Lois McMaster Bujold

In the real world, those of us who are most productive, successful, and satisfied focus not on fixing feelings or manipulating thoughts, but on what needs to be done—and then doing it—no matter what thoughts or feelings arise.

Dan Millman

All flesh is one: what matter scores; Or color of the suit Or if the helmet glints with blue or gold? All is one bold achievement, All is fine spring-found-again-in-autumn day When juices run in antelopes along our blood, And green our flag, forever green

Ray Douglas Bradbury

This picture will try to show the Nazism is a matter of mind, not geography, and that there are Nazis and people of good will in every country. The world can't spend its life looking over its shoulder and nursing hatreds. There would be no progress that way.

Marlon Brando

I am now convinced that theoretical physics is actually philosophy. It has revolutionized fundamental concepts, e.g., abut space and time (relativity), about causality (quantum theory), and about substance and matter (atomistics). It has taught us new methods of thinking (complimentarity), which are applicable far beyond physics.

Max Born
