A topic (Greek topos, place) is a head of discourse. Since a topic for discussion is often stated in the form of a question, question has come to be extensively used to denote a debatable topic, especially of a practical nature — an issue; as, the labor question; the temperance question. In deliberative assemblies a proposition presented or moved for acceptance is called a motion, and such a motion or other matter for consideration is known as the question, since it is or may be stated in interrogative form to be answered by each member with a vote of "aye" or "no;" a member is required to speak to the question; the chairman puts the question. In speaking or writing the general subject or theme may be termed the topic, tho it is more usual to apply the latter term to the subordinate divisions, points, or heads of discourse; as, to enlarge on this topic would carry me too far from my subject; a pleasant drive will suggest many topics for conversation.

I think this argument between him and the Wall Street Journal over what is essentially two percent of the rate, I think it's slightly overexaggerated. It's not going to make any difference in the real world if there's a one or two percent lower rate, and I think what's he's doing is trying to win votes with the sweetener of the child tax credit, there's nothing wrong with that. And it's true that a pudding has to have a theme, but a tax plan doesn't have to have a theme. The theme here is that you're lowering the rate, particularly on the corporate side. You're lowering the tax on investment and return, capital gains, which is what everybody on the right has always said is the engine to drive growth. So, you've got very serious pro-growth elements in here, and you've got a sweetener for the child tax credit, that that's a rejection of Reaganism I find slightly over the top.
Remind me to write an article on the compulsive reading of news. The theme will be that most neuroses can be traced to the unhealthy habit of wallowing in the troubles of five billion strangers.

In every bit of honest writing in the world, there is a base theme. Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and nearly always leads to love.
A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
