Famous quotes containing the words matter and/or ordinary:

    I am afraid that old women are more skeptical in their most secret heart of hearts than any man: they believe in the superficiality of existence as in its essence, and all virtue and profundity is to them merely a veil over this “truth,” a most welcome veil over a pudendum—and so a matter of decency and modesty, and nothing else.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
