„A musician cannot move others unless he too is moved.“

As quoted in Composers on Music : An Anthology of Composers' Writings from Palestrina to Copland (1956) by Sam Morgenstern, p. 60
Variant translation: A musician cannot move others unless he too is moved. He must of necessity feel all of the affects that he hopes to arouse in his audience, for the revealing of his own humour will stimulate a like humour in the listener. … constantly varying the passions, he will barely quiet one before he rouses another. Above all, he must discharge this office in a piece which is highly expressive by nature, whether by him or someone else. In the latter case he must make certain that he assumes the emotion which the composer intended in writing it.
As quoted in Così? : Sexual Politics in Mozart's Operas (1991) by Charles C. Ford, p. 46
Kontext: A musician cannot move others unless he too is moved. He must feel all the emotions that he hopes to arouse in his audience, for the revealing of his own humor will stimulate a like mood in the listener.

„Egoism, which is the moving force of the world, and altruism, which is its morality, these two contradictory instincts, of which one is so plain and the other so mysterious, cannot serve us unless in the incomprehensible alliance of their irreconcilable antagonism.“

—  Joseph Conrad Polish-British writer 1857 - 1924

Letter to the editor of The New York Times Saturday Book Review (August 1901), as quoted in Joseph Conrad: A Life (2007) by Zdzisław Najder, translated by Halina Najder, p. 315

„Those cameras are not going on the move unless we have a protester. If we had a protester that’s the only time they move because they’re showing something that in their mind is a bad thing, so then they move.“

—  Donald J. Trump 45th President of the United States of America 1946

2010s, 2016, August, Speech at rally in Wilmington, North Carolina (August 9, 2016)
Kontext: Those cameras are not going on the move unless we have a protester. If we had a protester that’s the only time they move because they’re showing something that in their mind is a bad thing, so then they move. But I like that, I’ve always liked my protesters because the cameras show these massive crowds and people say wow, was that a big crowd.

„For although the will cannot be inwardly moved by any creature, yet it can be moved inwardly by God.“

—  Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica

III, q. 18, art. 1, ad 1
Summa Theologica (1265–1274)
Kontext: Whatever was in the human nature of Christ was moved at the bidding of the divine will; yet it does not follow that in Christ there was no movement of the will proper to human nature, for the good wills of other saints are moved by God's will... For although the will cannot be inwardly moved by any creature, yet it can be moved inwardly by God.

„The Bible says that the earth is immovable. It cannot be moved.“

—  Ray Comfort New Zealand-born Christian minister and evangelist 1949

So now is your chance to prove your point. Run outside and move the earth. Perhaps you and your friends could jump on it, or find a rocky outcrop and push it together. Maybe after that little experiment you will concede that the earth is immovable.
