“Rant would tell people: 'You're a different human being to everybody you meet.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Rant

Henri Matisse
“You must forget all your theories, all your ideas before the subject. What part of these is really your own will be expressed in your expression of the emotion awakened in you by the subject.”
Henri Matisse

André Breton
“Nothing that surrounds us is object, all is subject.”
André Breton

Criss Jami

Criss Jami, Killosophy

Criss Jami
“It's not about whether or not someone is a bigot, but whether or not the argument which that someone is arguing is worth being a bigot about.”

Parker J. Palmer
“Teaching holds a mirror to the soul. If I am willing to look in that mirror and not run from what I see I have a chance to gain self knowledge and knowing myself is as crucial to good teaching as knowing my students and my subject. In fact, knowing my students and my subject depends heavily on self knowledge.”
Parker J. Palmer, The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher's Life

Lisa Marie Basile
“… I am me, but am not
me: I have spent my entire life & all of its suffering
both as spectator & subject. a woman trapped eternally as a
child waiting for the holy father. I look pretty but feel so
young, standing on the curb sucking on the lemon of the
sun.”
Lisa Marie Basile, APOCRYPHAL

“...in microphysics the observer interferes with the experiment in a way that can't be measured and that therefore can't be eliminated. No natural laws can be formulated, saying "such-and-such will happen in every case." All the microphysicist can say is "such-and-such is, according to statistical probability, likely to happen." This naturally represents a tremendous problem for our classical physical thinking. It requires a consideration, in a scientific experiment, of the mental outlook of the participant-observer: It could this be said that scientists can no longer hope to describe any aspects or qualities of outer objects in a completely independent, "objective" manner.”
M.-L. von Franz

Charles Olson
“If he stays inside himself, if he is contained within his nature as he is participant in the larger force, he will be able to listen, and his hearing through himself will give him secrets objects share.”
Charles Olson

“Sometimes a controversial statement can be used to determine where the loyalty of the subject lies.”
DON SANTO

Maurice Merleau-Ponty
“I rediscover the world - which I had distinguished from myself as a sum of things or of processes tied together through causal relations - ‘in myself’ as the permanent horizon of all of my thoughts and as a dimension in relation to which I never cease situating myself.”
Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Phenomenology of Perception

“Remember that although technique is important, there are other issues in art making that should take precedence. When the strongest thing in an artwork is technique, the subject is vanity. Art must have a higher subject. Something else must rise to the top. A work of art is born in the desire for something—to explore something, be it formal (understanding light, color, or objects in space), political, or emotional. The creative act takes in everything about you—the images and creative means of who you are and where you come from, added to the world you see and hope for. The technique you learn should always be in the service of this.”
Kenneth Leslie

Theodor W. Adorno
“But the castration of perception by a court of control that denies it any anticipatory desire, forces it thereby into a pattern of helplessly reiterating what is already known.”
Theodor W. Adorno, Minima Moralia: Reflections on a Damaged Life

Maurice Merleau-Ponty
“We have the experience of a world, not in the sense of a system of relations that fully determines each event, but in the sense of an open totality whose synthesis can never be completed. We have the experience of an I, not in the sense of an absolute subjectivity, but rather one that is indivisibly unmade and remade over the course of time. The unity of the subject or of the object is not a real unity, but a presumptive unity within the horizon of experience; we must discover, beneath the idea of the subject and the idea of the object, the fact of my subjectivity and the object in the nascent state, the primordial layer where ideas and things are born.”
Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Phenomenology of Perception

“What is amazing but understandable is how you moved from one subject to another. This often occurs when one's argument is weak and unsubstantiated.”
Jeffrey G. Duarte

Ehsan Sehgal
“Every subject of the world, whether on the topic of the religion, spirituality or science, philosophy, literature and even on the politics, endorses the devotion, without that, the hold, and success is not only difficult; however, that can be impossible too. Each subject of the world depends on the devotion; it does not apply only to the religion.”
Ehsan Sehgal

“You hate a subject… you hate a topic… didn't you learn something as comedian... IN SCHOOL?”

“Any subject of the writing is valuable if that has received significant coverage by the academics, and the ordinary readers. The non-acceptance of any group makes the subject negligible.”
Ehsan Sehgal

Steven Magee
“Novel research leads to redefining the subject.”
Steven Magee

Ehsan Sehgal
“Any subject that protects its matters, lines, and objects, within the international law and the values, is not the enemy of anyone until that breaks or violates its limits.”
Ehsan Sehgal

Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan
“Now, we turn to the gods – not for guidance or protection, but as experimental subjects. Deities, demons and other supernatural entities can be considered as self-perpetuating structures in the elemental chaos. They might be naturally accreting structures, or perhaps they were unconsciously shaped over many generations by blind faith. These self-perpetuating structures can channel elemental energy through congruent souls – or, to put it another way, saints manifest the sacred blessings of the gods.”
Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, The Gutter Prayer

“The Russians make the USA look like incompetents on the subject of the long term biological effects of electro-magnetic radiation (EMR).”

“As far as I am aware, I am the only person in the world researching High Altitude Observatory Diseases (HAOD) and that makes me the world’s leading expert on the subject.”
Steven Magee

“Perhaps, I am an unknown subject for you because only you do not know me.”
Ehsan Sehgal

Umberto Eco
“The sign is supposed to be based on the categories of 'similitude' or 'identity' . This presumed fallacy renders the sign coherent with the ideological notion of the subject. The subject as a presupposed transcendental unity which opens itself to the world (or to which the world opens) through the act of representation, as well as the subject that transfers its representations onto other subjects in the process of communication, is supposedly a philosophical fiction dominating all of the history of philosophy.”
Umberto Eco, Semiotics and the Philosophy of Language

Jean Baudrillard
“All that remains is the Object as a strange attractor. The subject is no longer a strange attractor. We know the subject too well; the subject knows himself too well. It is the Object that is exciting, because the Object is my vanishing point.
The Object is what theory can be for reality: not a reflection but a challenge, and a strange attractor. This, potentially, is the way to go in search of otherness.
There are two methods of getting beyond alienation. Either disalienation and the reappropriation of oneself - a tiresome process, without much prospect of success these days. Or the other extreme - the path of the absolute Other, of absolute exoticism. This alternative path leads to an exponential defined elsewhere, virtually, in terms of total excentricity. It goes beyond alienation but in the same direction - to what is more other than the Other, to radical otherness.
The duality of otherness implies an unchallengeable metamorphosis, an unchallengeable supremacy of appearances and metamorphoses. I am not alienated. Rather, I am definitively other. No longer subject to the law of desire, but subject now to the total artifice of rules. I have lost any trace of desire of my own. I answer only to something non-human - something inscribed not within me but solely in the objective and arbitrary vicissitudes of the world's signs.”
Jean Baudrillard, The Transparency of Evil: Essays in Extreme Phenomena
