Like many physical diseases, anti-Semitism is highly infectious, and can become endemic in certain localities and societies.

Kathie Lee Gifford

Charles R. Swindoll

The genius of the Spanish people is exquisitely subtle, without being at all acute; hence there is so much humour and so little wit in their literature.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Art is expression; what is expressed is often the vision of a subtle and powerful soul, and also his experience with his vision; and however vivid and skilful he may be in the means of expression, yet it is frequently found that the master-spell in his work is something felt to be indefinable and inexpressible.
George Edward Woodberry
Words can hurt you. In the larger world, it frames how people think about you, and it can hurt you in lots of little, subtle ways.
Everything you do, every thought you have, every word you say creates a memory that you will hold in your body. It's imprinted on you and affects you in subtle ways - ways you are not always aware of. With that in mind, be very conscious and selective.
If a fish is the movement of water embodied, given shape, then cat is a diagram and pattern of subtle air.
Often as we teach and testify about the law of tithing, we emphasize the immediate, dramatic and readily recognizable temporal blessings that we receive. And surely such blessings do occur. Yet some of the diverse blessings we obtain as we are obedient to this commandment are significant but subtle.
David A. Bednar
If you're living with a scientist, you see the world differently than you do with a humanist. It's in some ways very subtle, the differences in perceiving reality.
Joyce Carol Oates

The more refined and subtle our minds, the more vulnerable they are.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
