Theorem nnullss 4417
Description: A non-empty class (even if proper) has a non-empty subset. (Contributed by NM, 23-Aug-2003.)
Assertion
Ref Expression
nnullss  |-  ( A  =/=  (/)  ->  E. x
( x  C_  A  /\  x  =/=  (/) ) )
Distinct variable group:    x, A

Proof of Theorem nnullss
Dummy variable  y is distinct from all other variables.
