„Wherever there is a conscious mind, there is a point of view.“

—  Daniel Dennett American philosopher 1942
Time and the observer (1995), Context: Wherever there is a conscious mind, there is a point of view. A conscious mind is an observer, who takes in the information that is available at a particular (roughly) continuous sequence of times and places in the universe. A mind is thus a locus of subjectivity, a thing it is like something to be (Farrell, 1950, Nagel, 1974). What it is like to be that thing is partly determined by what is available to be observed or experienced along the trajectory through space-time of that moving point of view, which for most practical purposes is just that: a point. For instance, the startling dissociation of the sound and appearance of distant fireworks is explained by the different transmission speeds of sound and light, arriving at the observer (at that point) at different times, even though they left the source simultaneously. pp. 183–247

„War fans spit on the principles of the American Revolution when they charge obediently wherever their president points our flag.“

—  Paul Glover Community organizer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; American politician 1947
Context: “War fans spit on the principles of the American Revolution when they charge obediently wherever their president points our flag.  Many flag-wavers know little about the U. S. Constitution, but can explain soap operas and football in detail.” http://www.paulglover.org/9103.html (Ithaca Times, letter to editor), March 1991

„Goodnight Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are.“

—  Jimmy Durante American jazz singer, pianist, comedian and actor 1893 - 1980
Famous sign-off line to all his radio and TV shows, the meaning of which he never publicly revealed, leading to much speculation and many theories. Only after his death did it become public knowledge that it was reference to his first wife, Jeanne Olson, who died in 1943, and that Calabash was a private name between them for Calabasas, California, where she spent much of the final years of her life.

„I have seen too many frightful proofs in court — the Devil is alive in Salem, and we dare not quail to follow wherever the accusing finger points!“

—  Arthur Miller, The Crucible
The Crucible (1953), Context: Though our own hearts break, we cannot flinch; these are new times, sir. There is a misty plot afoot so subtle we should be criminal to cling to old respect and ancient friendships. I have seen too many frightful proofs in court — the Devil is alive in Salem, and we dare not quail to follow wherever the accusing finger points! John Hale
