Citat

„Corect” și „greșit” într-adevăr există. Doar pentru că nu știi care este răspunsul corect, chiar dacă nu există nici o metodă prin care să descoperi care este răspunsul corect, nu înseamnă că răspunsul tău este corect nici măcar OK. E mai simplu de atât... E pur și simplu GREȘIT! - Gregory House (House M.D. - sezonul 1, episodul 21, Three Stories/Trei povești)

Dar cine a spus aceste cuvinte?

"Da' e așa de greu să vorbească altcineva despre experiența altcuiva? E greu! De unde știm că a fost sau n-a fost? Ar trebui să ne spună persoana în cauză. Așa din afară noi putem să emitem ce judecăți de valoare vrem. [..]și privirea voastră este subiectivă asupra problemei, că doar nu vi s-a-ntâmplat! [..] Dacă nu ești în interiorul unui fenomen, orice părere este subiectivă. Așa că lăsați subiectivismul să fie împărțit între tabere. Să-l avem și noi, să-l aveți și voi"
