Murders with guns are the No. 1 cause of death for African-American men between the ages of 15 and 34. But talking about race in the context of guns would also mean taking on a subject that can't be addressed by passing a law: the family-breakdown issues that lead too many minority children to find social status and power in guns.
I was scared to do anything in the studio because it felt so claustrophobic. I wanted to be somewhere where things could happen and the subject wasn't just looking back at you.
New York has been the subject of thousands of books. Every immigrant group has had its saga as has every epoch and social class.
Without touching my subject I want to come to the moment when, through pure concentration of seeing, the composed picture becomes more made than taken. Without a descriptive caption to justify its existence, it will speak for itself - less descriptive, more creative; less informative, more suggestive - less prose, more poetry.
I often think about how my sons will come to know about September 11th. Something overheard? A newspaper image? In school? I would prefer that they learn about it from my wife and me, in a deliberate and safe way. But it's hard to imagine ever feeling ready to broach the subject without some impetus.
Jonathan Safran Foer
One of the problems we've had is that the ICT curriculum in the past has been written for a subject that is changing all the time. I think that what we should have is computer science in the future - and how it fits in to the curriculum is something we need to be talking to scientists, to experts in coding and to young people about.
Mental events, it is said, are not passive happenings but the acts of a subject.
My favorite subject probably was math. I love math. Figures just intrigue me. I was really good at math. English probably was my worst subject. But I used to write a lot of poetry. I used to write poetry all the time.
I'd been eating fast food all my life without thinking about it. And the more I learned about the subject, the more intrigued I became.
When I left home after graduating high school, I left as a migrant agricultural worker with a Modern Library edition of Plato in my duffel bag. It sounds kind of crazy, but I loved it. I loved the stuff. Before I knew there was a subject called philosophy, I loved it.
What's the subject of life - to get rich? All of those fellows out there getting rich could be dancing around the real subject of life.
Paul A. Volcker
A filial son to his father can be a traitorous subject to his ruler.
All things are subject to decay and when fate summons, monarchs must obey.
I think the best teachers had a real interest in the subject they were teaching and a love for children.
English, as a subject, never really got over its upstart nature. It tries to bulk itself up with hopeless jargon and specious complexity, tries to imitate subjects it can never be.
The insistence that the commercialisation of the body is a fit subject for political discussion and intervention is well overdue.
The whole idea of equal justice under law means that you've got to play by the rules. It has nothing to do with the underlying subject matter. You just tell the truth.
Profound subject matter can be encompassed in small space - for proof, look at any sonnet by Shakespeare!
The style depends on the subject.
The severe portrait that is not the greatest joy in the world to the subject may be enormously interesting to the reader.
I - and there are hundreds of thousands of Irishmen who felt on this subject as I do - have always liked my Celtic countrymen and disliked the English nation; it is a national trait of character, and I cannot help it.

If you look up every last detail on your subject, you'll never finish.
As to the 'St. Michael,' the subject is very fine, but very difficult, so I doubt that I shall find easily amongst my pupils one capable of carrying it out satisfactorily even after my own drawing. In any case, it will be necessary for me to touch it up carefully with my own hand.
Peter Paul Rubens
A painting is finished when the subject comes back, when what has caused the painting to be made comes back as an object.
