Original research removed[edit]

The following quotes are removed from the article, because their content and meaning is only remotely related to Materialism.

More, over:

  • It is clear, that nor the quote nor the source explicitly mention the word "materialism".
  • Including this kind of quotes opens the door to all kinds of speculation. Some may say its appropriate, some would say it is not, some could even be offended by it... etc.
  • Also there is an explicit understanding, that in biographical articles, quotes should not be arranged under "original headers," meaning interpretations by the participating Wikiquote user.
  • It is just a higher quality standard to exclude quotes which are not directly related to the theme.
  • There are exceptions, for example if a secondary source has placed the quote in the context of the theme. This should then be made explicit in the citation of the secondary source.

Etc. -- Mdd (talk) 10:15, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Instead I have added a "See also" - section, see here, where close related theme's can be added. -- Mdd (talk) 10:24, 1 April 2014 (UTC)
