Collective Mind quotes by Ayn Rand
#1. People said it because other people said it. They did not know why it was being said and heard everywhere. They did not give or ask for reasons. 'Reason,' Dr. Pritchett had told them, 'is the most naive of all superstitions.'
'The source of public opinion?' said Claude Slagenhop in a public radio speech. 'There is no source of public opinion. It is spontaneously general. It is a reflex of the collective instinct of the collective mind. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Collective Mind quotes by Ayn Rand
#2. A "collective" mind does not exist. It is merely the sum of endless numbers of individual minds. If we have an endless number of individual minds who are weak, meek, submissive and impotent – who renounce their creative supremacy for the sake of the "whole" and accept humbly that the "whole's" verdict – we don't get a collective super-brain. We get only the weak, meek, submissive and impotent collective mind. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Collective Mind quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#3. Comedy appeals to the collective mind of the audience and this grows fatigued; while farce appeals to a more robust organ, their collective belly. #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Collective Mind quotes by Deepak Chopra
#4. Although we think that we think, most of the time we are being thought by the collective mind, the hypnosis of conditioning. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Collective Mind quotes by Ally Condie
#5. -at least in the collective mind of the Society. #Quote by Ally Condie
Collective Mind quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#6. Inherited collective mind-patterns ... have kept humans in bondage to suffering for eons. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Collective Mind quotes by Bill Hicks
#7. You see, Jung had this idea of a Collective Unconscious which mankind shared... and I agree. But! I think this Collective Mind is supposed to be conscious, not unconscious! And that is our job as the Agents of Evolution to enlighten - to bring light into the dark corners of that Netherworld and thus awaken our Mind to Truth and complete the circle that was broken with the dream of our fall from Grace. #Quote by Bill Hicks
Collective Mind quotes by Wadah Khanfar
#8. Al Jazeera is the opinion of other opinion, independent. Al Jazeera is diverse, reflection of the collective mind of the nations and cultures and civilizations that we report from and we report to, bridge of dialogue. This is what Al Jazeera is all about. Al Jazeera is a mission. #Quote by Wadah Khanfar
Collective Mind quotes by Terence McKenna
#9. If psychedelics are exopheromones that dissolve the dominant ego, then they are also enzymes that synergize the human imagination and empower language. They cause us to connect and reconnect the contents of the collective mind in ever more implausible, beautiful, and self-fulfilling ways. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Collective Mind quotes by Carl Jung
#10. Our mind has its history, just as our body has its history. You might be just as astonished that man has an appendix, for instance. Does he know he ought to have an appendix? He is just born with it ... Our unconscious mind, like our body, is a storehouse of relics and memories of the past. A study of the structure of the unconscious collective mind would reveal the same discoveries as you make in comparative anatomy. We do not need to think that there is anything mystical about it. #Quote by Carl Jung
Collective Mind quotes by David Whiteland
#11. Imagine a land where people are afraid of dragons. It is a reasonable fear: dragons possess a number of qualities that make being afraid of them a very commendable response. Things like their terrible size, their ability to spout fire, or to crack boulders into splinters with their massive talons. In fact, the only terrifying quality that dragons do not possess is that of existence.

Now, the people of this land know about dragons because their leaders have warned them about them. They tell stories about cruel dragons with razor teeth and fiery breath. They recount legends of dragons hunting by night on silent wings. In short, the leaders make sure that the people believe in all the qualities of dragons, including that key quality of existence. And then they control the people - when they need to - with their fear of dragons. The people pay a dragon-slaying tax … everyone stays indoors after dark to avoid being snatched by swooping claws … and nobody ever strays out of bounds for fear of being eaten well and truly up.

Perhaps somebody will wonder if dragons aren't, after all, fictitious because - despite their size - nobody seems to have actually seen one. And so it is necessary from time to time to provide evidence: a burnt tree or two, a splintered rock, the mysterious absence of a villager. The population is controlled by the dragons in its collective mind. It's contrived superstition, and it is possible because the people do not know enough ab #Quote by David Whiteland
Collective Mind quotes by Pearl Zhu
#12. Trust is a collective mind - the corporate culture. You can't build and nourish trust without creating a conducive environment of trust. #Quote by Pearl Zhu
Collective Mind quotes by Trey Parker
#13. Kim Jong Il: Hans Brix? Oh no! Oh, herro. Great to see you again, Hans!
Hans Blix: Mr. Il, I was supposed to be allowed to inspect your palace today, but your guards won't let me enter certain areas.
Kim Jong Il: Hans, Hans, Hans! We've been frew this a dozen times. I don't have any weapons of mass destwuction, OK Hans?
Hans Blix: Then let me look around, so I can ease the UN's collective mind. I'm sorry, but the UN must be firm with you. Let me in, or else.
Kim Jong Il: Or else what?
Hans Blix: Or else we will be very angry with you ... and we will write you a letter, telling you how angry we are. #Quote by Trey Parker
Collective Mind quotes by Sunil Yapa
#14. But then in March '92, the Rodney King verdict came down... And the city had lost its collective mind and was trying to burn itself to the ground.

Ju had caught one woman climbing out of the shattered glass of a pharmacy, not like she was the only one, just the one Ju had caught... The woman stood there holding her loot, face devoid of expression. In her hands she held two packages of Pampers, a can of roach spray, and a Pepsi.

'They be climbing over the baby when he asleep,' the woman said by way of explanation. 'The cockroaches, I mean.'

Ju took the Pampers and the roach killer. Then she cuffed the lady and out her in the van with the others.
Because that was the job. #Quote by Sunil Yapa
Collective Mind quotes by Dharma Mittra
#15. When you are doing things together, you are inside the collective mind, and share psychic knowledge with each other. That is how you become one. #Quote by Dharma Mittra
Collective Mind quotes by Will Jelbert
#16. Social proof is a flame to the human mind moth, and it leaves a fire trail of destruction across the path of enough. #Quote by Will Jelbert
Collective Mind quotes by George Henry Lewes
#17. In urging all writers to be steadfast in reliance on the ultimate victory of excellence, we should no less strenuously urge upon them to beware of the intemperate arrogance which attributes failure to a degraded condition of the public mind. The instinct which leads the world to worship success is not dangerous. The book which succeeds accomplishes its aim. The book which fails may have many excellencies, but they must have been misdirected. #Quote by George Henry Lewes
Collective Mind quotes by James Stephens
#18. A poem is a revelation, and it is by the brink of running water that poetry is revealed to the mind. #Quote by James Stephens
Collective Mind quotes by Elizabeth Scott
#19. He's looking at me as if the whole world waits for my next breath, with an intensity that makes my heart pound and my palms sweat and then he smiles, a sweet curve of his mouth, and my breath catches, but then I freeze because there is something about it, something beyond it that I know, that makes my mind go blank with fear and pain. #Quote by Elizabeth Scott
Collective Mind quotes by William James
#20. Intellectualism' is the belief that our mind comes upon a world complete in itself, and has the duty of ascertaining its contents; but has no power of re-determining its character, for that is already given. #Quote by William James
Collective Mind quotes by Henry Lipson
#21. To my mind, the theory of [evolution] does not stand up at all. If living matter is not, then, caused by the interplay of atoms, natural forces, and radiation [i.e., time, chance, and chemistry], how has it come into being? I think, however, that we must go further than this and admit that the only acceptable explanation is creation. #Quote by Henry Lipson
Collective Mind quotes by Titus Lucretius Carus
#22. this terror then and drakness of mind must be dispelled not by the rays of the sun and glittering shafts of day, but by the aspect and the law of nature; the warp whose design we shall begin with this first principle, nothing is ever gotten out of nothing by divine power. #Quote by Titus Lucretius Carus
Collective Mind quotes by Khalil Gibran
#23. It is slavery to live in the mind unless it has become part of the body #Quote by Khalil Gibran
Collective Mind quotes by Agatha Christie
#24. Of course, if you've made up your mind about it, you'll find an answer to everything. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Collective Mind quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#25. If you identify with a mental position, then if you are wrong, your mind-based sense of self is seriously threatened with annihilation. So you as the ego cannot afford to be wrong. To be wrong is to die. Wars have been fought over this, and countless relationships have broken down. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Collective Mind quotes by Henry James
#26. They had from an early hour made up their mind that society was, luckily, unintelligent, and the margin allowed them by this had fairly become one of their commonplaces. #Quote by Henry James
Collective Mind quotes by Johannes Kepler
#27. Why waste words? Geometry existed before the Creation, is co-eternal with the mind of God, is God himself (what exists in God that is not God himself?): geometry provided God with a model for the Creation and was implanted into man, together with God's own likeness - and not merely conveyed to his mind through the eyes. #Quote by Johannes Kepler
Collective Mind quotes by Will Durant
#28. The constant steaming in of thoughts of others must suppress and confine our own and indeed in the long run paralyze the power of thought ... The inclination of most scholars is a kind of fuga vacui ( latin for vacuum suction )from the poverty of their own mind , which forcibly draws in the thoughts of others ... It is dangerous to read about a subject before we have thought about it ourselves ... When we read, another person thinks for us; merely repeat his mental process. So it comes about that if anybody spends almost the whole day in reading, he gradually loses the capacity for thinking. Experience of the world may be looked upon as a kind of text, to which reflection and knowledge form the commentary. Where there is a great deal of reflection and intellectual knowledge and very little experience , the result is like those books which have on each page two lines of text to forty lines of commentary #Quote by Will Durant
Collective Mind quotes by Seth Grahame-Smith
#29. I would much prefer their minds to be engaged in the deadly arts than clouded with dreams of marriage and fortune, as your own so clearly is! #Quote by Seth Grahame-Smith
Collective Mind quotes by David Icke
#30. Benjamin Libet, a scientist in the physiology department of the University of California, San Francisco, was a pioneering researcher into the nature of human consciousness. In one famous experiment he asked a study group to move their hands at a moment of their choosing while their brain activity was being monitored. Libet was seeking to identify what came first - the brain's electrical activity to make the hand move or the person's conscious intention to make their hand move. It had to be the second one, surely? But no. Brain activity to move the hand was triggered a full half a second before any conscious intention to move it…. John-Dylan Haynes, a neuroscientist at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Studies in Leipzig, Germany, led a later study that was able to predict an action ten seconds before people had a conscious intention to do it. What was all the stuff about free will? Frank Tong, a neuroscientist at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, said: "Ten seconds is a lifetime in terms of brain activity." So where is it coming from if not 'us,' the conscious mind? #Quote by David Icke
Collective Mind quotes by Marina Abramovic
#31. To control the breathing is to control the mind. With different patterns of breathing, you can fall in love, you can hate someone, you can feel the whole spectrum of feelings by changing your breathing. #Quote by Marina Abramovic
Collective Mind quotes by Peter Senge
#32. In the absence of a great dream pettiness prevails. Shred visions foster risk taking, courage and innovation. Keeping the end in mind creates the confidence to make decisions even in moments of crisis. #Quote by Peter Senge
Collective Mind quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#33. The real power in America is held by a fast-emerging new Oligarchy of pimps and preachers who see no need for Democracy or fairness or even trees, except maybe the ones in their own yards, and they don't mind admitting it. They worship money and power and death. Their ideal solution to all the nation's problems would be another 100 Year War. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Collective Mind quotes by Aaron-Michael Hall
#34. At times, the ignorance of our supposed knowledge is more a blessing than a curse. In other instances, that ignorance is detrimental to the mind, body, and spirit.

I don't understand.

Is ignorance not a freeing thing? #Quote by Aaron-Michael Hall
Collective Mind quotes by Paul Fussell
#35. Before the development of tourism, travel was conceived to be like study, and its fruits were considered to be the adornment of the mind and the formation of judgement. #Quote by Paul Fussell
Collective Mind quotes by Debra Anastasia
#36. Chaos poked him again, and Blake welcomed the pain this time. This pain will remind me why I shouldn't find her.
Blake hated his weakness, but he let the pain transport him back to the clearing, to her face. He vowed it would be the last time, but he wanted to remember her noises and panting as he tasted her soft skin. She smelled like cinnamon.
Blake tried to see her face in his memory: trusting Livia, submitting to his hands and tongue. Instead he saw her pain as she told him she didn't see his skin turn to glass in the sun. She'd tried to hide her knowing.
Brave, beautiful Livia. She'd stood there waiting and never even flinched when he ran past. He could have plowed into her. Blake knew what it took to stay still when your mind screamed Run! A person had to find a place inside to die while things they didn't want happened to their body. #Quote by Debra Anastasia
Collective Mind quotes by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
#37. I tried to hold on to this compassion, sensing its preciousness, but even as I reached to grasp it, it dissipated into wisps. No revelation can endure unless it is bolstered by a calm pure mind- and I'm afraid I didn't possess that. #Quote by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Collective Mind quotes by Joyce Meyer
#38. As you pray for the Holy Spirit to make you aware of thoughts that come into your mind that don't line up with God's Word, you'll begin to realize when those thoughts come and you can renew your mind with the Word. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Collective Mind quotes by Justin Martyr
#39. By examining the tongue of the patient, physicians find out the diseases of the body, and philosophers the diseases of the mind. #Quote by Justin Martyr
Collective Mind quotes by A.L. Jackson
#40. Tell me you need me, Alexis. Tell me you need this as fucking bad as I do. Tell me it's okay. Tell me I'm not the only one who's losing his mind." The words grated, rugged and fuelled by need.
Emotion thickened in my throat, so heavy, so right. "I need you."
The last threads of whatever was holding Zee back snapped. #Quote by A.L. Jackson
Collective Mind quotes by Anne Rice
#41. Also, I thought, I can always delay the murder. . . . I can let my mind have this company it craves and I can always kill him later on. But I'm sure you know such reasoning is false, because once we grow to love a person, we are not likely to want that person's death. #Quote by Anne Rice
Collective Mind quotes by Anne Fogarty
#42. The worst mistake you can make is to force yourself to shop. The most important part of shopping is your frame of mind. How can you make a proper choice if you feel like the mistreated heroine of a soap opera?

A frivolous hat or other bit of forbidden fruit are ideal for beating the blues, but stay out of the dress and coat departments until you feel enthusiastic. If your body isn't attuned to fashion, you won't look right in anything. And if you're depressed because you've gained a few pounds, don't buy something too small to grow down to. Lose the few pounds first then go shopping. Remember, diets always start tomorrow. #Quote by Anne Fogarty
Collective Mind quotes by Alex Shakar
#43. Childhood and adulthood were not factors of age but states of mind. #Quote by Alex Shakar
Collective Mind quotes by William Monahan
#44. Wisdom is not having illusions, especially anything in your own mind that elevates you above others. #Quote by William Monahan
Collective Mind quotes by Karina Halle
#45. If there was a moment that determined the course of my future, I'm pretty sure this was it. I had two somewhat simple choices. I could make a run for it and go back to Uncle Al's. Back to the bonfire where my cousins and dear sister would be drinking and revel in the normalcy of a Saturday night and forget I ever went to this horrid place and ran into this weirdo. Or I could go with said weirdo up the stairs in this decrepit old lighthouse, which was most likely condemned and unsafe, towards some unknown person (or thing) that was walking around, potentially waiting to murder us in horrific ways.

It didn't seem like a very hard decision to make. In fact, I think 99.7% of people in the right frame of mind would have picked from column A and gone on with their merry lives. But for some freaking crazy reason, I thought that maybe, just maybe I should go with this stranger up those kelp-ridden stairs and toward the lair of unimaginable horror. You know, because it was the more interesting alternative. #Quote by Karina Halle
Collective Mind quotes by Doug Berry
#46. The great minds approaching understanding will admit they continually gain more questions and less answers. #Quote by Doug Berry
Collective Mind quotes by Samuel Beckett
#47. The words of the rose to the rose floated up in his mind: "No gardener has died, comma, within rosaceous memory." He sang a little song, he drank his bottle of stout, he dashed away a tear, he made himself comfortable.
So it goes in the world. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Collective Mind quotes by Aaron Rodgers
#48. Playing behind a first-ballot Hall of Famer, who also is the all-time record holder for consecutive starts by a quarterback, it's a different mind-set. You just have to challenge yourself in ways that you never challenged yourself before. #Quote by Aaron Rodgers
Collective Mind quotes by Landon Liboiron
#49. TV is starting to become such a collective experience again. People are watching it on their own time, rather than being on a schedule. Netflix offers the easy opportunity to watch as much as you can. #Quote by Landon Liboiron
Collective Mind quotes by Natasa Nuit Pantovic
#50. A thought weaves into another thought, seeking the other.
The thought world has its-own Inner Life.
A rose acts upon us through its symbolism, through its beauty, through our conscious & sub-conscious mind.
Meditating we tap into the thought form of 'rose adoration'. #Quote by Natasa Nuit Pantovic
Collective Mind quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#51. Gloria had lulled his mind to sleep. She, who seemed of all women the wisest and the finest, hung like a brilliant curtain across his doorways, shutting out the light of the sun. In those first years what he believed bore invariably the stamp of Gloria; he saw the sun always through the pattern of the curtain. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Collective Mind quotes by Tom Althouse
#52. When it comes to our own well being, it is not a matter of doing the math, it is a matter of choosing the formula. When you add up the numbers, keep the primary factors in mind. Then multiply all sums by a positive outlook. The numbers will inevitably change and so will any undesirable equivalence. The math is merely the meter for the moment in an ever changing flux of the dynamic human equation. #Quote by Tom Althouse
Collective Mind quotes by Arthur Koestler
#53. I don't approve of mixing ideologies," Ivanov continued. "There are only two conceptions of human ethics, and they are at opposite poles. One of them is Christian and humane, declares the individual to be sacrosanct, and asserts that the rules of arithmetic are not to be applied to human units. The other starts from the basic principle that a collective aim justifies all means, and not only allows, but demands, that the individual should in every way be subordinated and sacrificed to the community
which may dispose of it as an experimentation rabbit or a sacrificial lamb. The first conception could be called anti-vivisection morality, the second, vivisection morality. Humbugs and dilettantes have always tried to mix the two conceptions; in practice, it is impossible. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Collective Mind quotes by Anton Szandor LaVey
#54. If you do not believe in what your religion teaches, why continue to support a belief which is contradictory with your feelings. You would never vote for a person or issue you did not believe in, so why cast your ecclesiastical vote for a religion which is not consistent with your convictions? You have no right to complain about a political situation you have voted for or supported in any way- which includes sitting back and complacently agreeing with neighbors who approve the situation, just because you are too lazy or cowardly to speak your mind. #Quote by Anton Szandor LaVey
Collective Mind quotes by Anthony T. Hincks
#55. We have a herd of cows.
A school of fish.
A pride of lions.
A gaggle of geese.
But, what do we call a group of raindrops? #Quote by Anthony T. Hincks
Collective Mind quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#56. When we hold onto worry, regret, and anger, peace of mind, strength of body, and freedom of spirit eludes us. #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
Collective Mind quotes by Zak Orth
#57. Homophobia is manufactured in high schools, so it's probably useful to keep in mind that it really does bother people. #Quote by Zak Orth
Collective Mind quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#58. I seek to use the tools of the mind to overcome a narcissistic self and attain self-mastery. I aspire to engage in self-cultivation by making practical usage of the process of enduring privations, overcoming challenges, and rejecting illicit temptations in order to gain fortitude, courage, and wisdom. I shall reflect upon grievous personal mistakes and embrace the concept of repentance as a lifelong growth process through which humankind conscientiously learns to make better choices by forsaking vice, immorality, and wickedness. I must also unreservedly embrace fate by perceiving everything that happens in life including suffering and loss as good, and affirm a life filled with indignity, sorrow, and tragedy. I can only discover happiness – a meaning, purpose, comprehensible truth, and essential value of existence – by living with dignity in the face of absurdity. When we affirm all aspects of being, we enjoy a tranquil existence. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Collective Mind quotes by Jacqueline Francis - Wanting To Remember, Trying To Forget
#59. To Charlie, anything Max did when it came to Danny, whether in words or actions,
was considered the asshole thing to do.
Max sighed. "Stupidity is a thing of the mind and unfortunately when it comes to her,
my head has no say."
Charlie shook his head. "Did you just grow a fucking vagina? That was incredibly
corny, man. #Quote by Jacqueline Francis - Wanting To Remember, Trying To Forget
Collective Mind quotes by Jonathan Maberry
#60. He knew that these creatures were dead, that they were reanimated echoes who wore the disguise of the people they had once been, but Tom's words rang in his mind. They used to be people. How could he strike them? How could he hurt them? Children, women, old people. Lost souls. #Quote by Jonathan Maberry
