If you make something good and interesting and not ridiculing someone or being offensive, the creators of the original material will like it.
If the means were available, we could trace our ancestry - yours and mine - back to the first blob of life-like material that came into being on the planet.
Clifford D. Simak
Not a single piece of material culture - not a single object - has been found at Giza that can be interpreted to come from a lost civilization.
I think it's important that, as a matter of course, the brain and spinal column were removed from this cow, and that would be the material that would cause concern in terms of human health. And therefore we're confident in the safety of the food supply.
I've always had a bazillion songs in my archive, but I want to play people stuff they know. Now that I have two albums' worth of material, that gives me freedom to compose a set that's more well-balanced and build a show rather than just a recital of some songs.
Life provides material for its agitation which makes its general views comprehensible to the masses.
Subject the material world to the higher ends by understanding it in all its relations to daily life and action.
Ellen Swallow Richards
In the Pythagorean system, thinking about numbers, or doing mathematics, was an inherently masculine task. Mathematics was associated with the gods, and with transcendence from the material world; women, by their nature, were supposedly rooted in this latter, baser realm.
Sometimes in the past when I was going to perform a piece again I would listen to old recordings and try to reproduce the material. This time I realized that carrying around old information, trying to get everything in, and still be in the moment just doesn't work.
Photography started as a means of getting reference material for my paintings of nature subjects.
The existing documentary makers still believe that it is impossible to produce drama material in this State, otherwise they would be doing it, they say.
The modern form of things had begun to appeal to me, also (as material for satire) politics, and the lives of the great and little, high up in the social scale.

Can we ignore what is going on around us, can we disconnect ourselves, our own material situation, our spiritual selves, who we are, can we disconnect that from history and the social context of our lives? The older I get, the more I'm convinced that we cannot, that we are social creatures.
Publishers have realized that, unlike the previous time period, American teenagers are both smarter and require more topical material than they had been giving them before that. For one thing, they'll read thicker books. Besides, has anybody looked at the news or read the newspapers recently?

Most presenters are consumed with preparing their content rapidly, which makes the material about their own narrow perspective.
Our culture is hung up on and overemphasises what can be derived from material objects.

John F. Kennedy
