Crowds quotes by Malcolm Muggeridge
#1. Jesus himself, even in his obscurity, dreaded the gathering of crowds, and where possible avoided them. Everything in Christianity that matters is from individual to individual; collectivities belong to the Devil, and so easily respond to his persuasion. The Devil is a demagogue and sloganeer; Jesus was, and is, concerned with individual souls, with the Living Word. What he gives us is truth carried on the wings of love, not slogans carried on the thrust of power. #Quote by Malcolm Muggeridge
Crowds quotes by Aziz Ansari
#2. I always have my setlist planned out, but the best moments are when the energy of the crowd just gets your mind working and you are able to come up with new tags for jokes and just riff off things in the room. #Quote by Aziz Ansari
Crowds quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#3. Whoever knows he is deep tries to be clear, but whoever wants to seem deep to the crowd tries to be obscure. For the crowd supposes that anything it cannot see to the bottom must be deep: it is so timid and goes so unwillingly into the water. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Crowds quotes by John C. Maxwell
#4. To go nowhere, follow the crowd. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Crowds quotes by Dana L. Ayers
#5. Just hearing crowds along the course cheering and ringing cowbells for you can make you want to keep racing. #Quote by Dana L. Ayers
Crowds quotes by Deborah Mailman
#6. I was big as a kid, very overweight. That caused a lot of insecurities for me growing up, and on top of that, I didn't like the idea of big crowds. I found it quite frightening. I enjoy the company of people who I know, and I'm probably still like that today. #Quote by Deborah Mailman
Crowds quotes by Albert Einstein
#7. The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Crowds quotes by Ruben Blades
#8. I think in New York we had respect and we would pretty much fill up the places where we went, but I never got the sense that we really were Number 1 here in New York among the Latin crowds. #Quote by Ruben Blades
Crowds quotes by Jeff Wheeler
#9. We are more wicked together than separately. If you are ever forced to be in a crowd, then most of all you should withdraw into yourself. Never trust another to do your thinking. #Quote by Jeff Wheeler
Crowds quotes by Jon Ronson
#10. The common assumption is that public punishments died out in the new great metropolises because they'd been judged useless. Everyone was too busy being industrious to bother to trail some transgressor through the city crowds like some volunteer scarlet letter. But according to the documents I found, that wasn't it at all. They didn't fizzle out because they were ineffective. They were stopped because they were far too brutal. #Quote by Jon Ronson
Crowds quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#11. And I want to rise up, throw my arms open for a vast embrace, address an ample, luminous discourse to the invisible crowds. I would start like this: O rainbow-colored gods ... #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Crowds quotes by Czesław Miłosz
#12. In Rome on the Campo dei Fiori
Baskets of olives and lemons,
Cobbles spattered with wine
And the wreckage of flowers.
Vendors cover the trestles
With rose-pink fish;
Armfuls of dark grapes
Heaped on peach-down.

On this same square
They burned Giordano Bruno.
Henchmen kindled the pyre
Close-pressed by the mob.
Before the flames had died
The taverns were full again,
Baskets of olives and lemons
Again on the vendors' shoulders.

I thought of the Campo dei Fiori
In Warsaw by the sky-carousel
One clear spring evening
To the strains of a carnival tune.
The bright melody drowned
The salvos from the ghetto wall,
And couples were flying
High in the cloudless sky.

At times wind from the burning
Would drift dark kites along
And riders on the carousel
Caught petals in midair.
That same hot wind
Blew open the skirts of the girls
And the crowds were laughing
On that beautiful Warsaw Sunday.

Someone will read as moral
That the people of Rome or Warsaw
Haggle, laugh, make love
As they pass by martyrs' pyres.
Someone else will read
Of the passing of things human,
Of the oblivion
Born before the flames have died.

But that day I thought only
Of the loneliness of the dying,
Of how, when Giordano
Climbed to his burning
There were no words
In any h #Quote by Czesław Miłosz
Crowds quotes by Liam Payne
#13. It's so amazing to hear a crowd of people singing one of your songs. It's the best feeling. #Quote by Liam Payne
Crowds quotes by M.C. Scott
#14. Corbulo: a name to conjure with, a name to follow into battle, wherever he led; a name to have a man marching to the gates of Rome, crying Imperator! until the crowds and the idiot senate and the corrupt wax-brains of the Praetorian Guard and every other man with voting powers in the city came to understand what we already knew: that this man should be our emperor, that Rome would thrive under his rule, in place of the fool who presently held the throne.
Corbulo, who stood before us that bright, brisk spring afternoon and watched as our centurions bawled us through our paces, and then as Cadus took charge and marched us through the display that we had been practising, if we were honest, for the last four years, just for this moment. #Quote by M.C. Scott
Crowds quotes by E.W. Howe
#15. Men are a good deal better collectively than they are individually. Many a man will do that privately which he will denounce in a crowd. #Quote by E.W. Howe
Crowds quotes by James P. Carse
#16. There is no narrative without structure, or plot. In a great story this structure seems like fate, like an inescapable judgment descending on its still unaware heroes, a great metaphysical causality, that crowds out all room for choice. Fate arises not as a limitation on our freedom, but as a manifestation of our freedom, testimony that choice is consequent. The exercise of your freedom cannot prevent the exercise of my own freedom, but it can determine the context in which I am to act freely. You cannot make choices for me, but you can largely determine what my choices will be about. Great stories explore the drama of this deeper touching of one free person by another. They are therefore genuinely sexual dramas astounding us once more with the magic of origins. #Quote by James P. Carse
Crowds quotes by Thomas Merton
#17. Memory is corrupted and ruined by a crowd of memories. If I am going to have a true memory, there are a thousand things that must first be forgotten. Memory is not fully itself when it reaches only into the past. A memory that is not alive to the present does not remember the here and now, does not remember its true identity, is not memory at all. He who remembers nothing but facts and past events, and is never brought back into the present, is a victim of amnesia. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Crowds quotes by Josh Holloway
#18. I'm an outdoorsman kind of person, so I don't like the buzz of the crowd, crowd, crowd and all that so much. I mean I don't mind it, but I don't seek it out. #Quote by Josh Holloway
Crowds quotes by Tomas Transtromer
#19. Sometimes my life opened its eyes in the dark. A feeling as if crowds drew through the streets in blindness and anxiety on the way towards a miracle, while I invisibly remain standing. #Quote by Tomas Transtromer
Crowds quotes by Norton Juster
#20. 4. Confusion in the Market Place Indeed it was, for as they approached, Milo could see crowds of people pushing and shouting their way among the stalls, buying and selling, trading and bargaining. Huge wooden-wheeled carts streamed into the market square from the orchards, and long caravans bound for the four corners of the kingdom made ready to leave. Sacks and boxes were piled high waiting to be delivered to the ships that sailed the Sea of Knowledge, and off to one side a group of minstrels sang songs to the delight of those either too young or too old to engage in trade. But above all the noise and tumult of the crowd could be heard the merchants' voices loudly advertising their products. "Get your fresh-picked ifs, ands, and buts." "Hey-yaa, hey-yaa, hey-yaa, nice ripe wheres and whens." "Juicy, tempting words for sale. #Quote by Norton Juster
Crowds quotes by Wavy Gravy
#21. I was at the 1976 Republican Convention in Kansas City. I was running 'Nobody for President' at the time. I printed up these press releases and handed them out to the crowd at the Kemper Arena. 'Nobody keeps campaign promises.' 'Nobody lowers your taxes.' 'Nobody should have that much power.' 'Nobody is in Washington working for you.' #Quote by Wavy Gravy
Crowds quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#22. Launch your vessel, And crowd your canvas, And, ere it vanishes Over the margin, After it, follow it, FollowThe Gleam. #Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Crowds quotes by Don DeLillo
#23. Crowds came to form a shield against their own dying. To become a crowd is to keep out death. To break off from the crowd is to risk death as an individual, to face dying alone. #Quote by Don DeLillo
Crowds quotes by Greg Giraldo
#24. Jesse has opened for me extensively on the road so I've seen him do hundreds of sets. He is always super funny, has tons of material and the crowds love him. Bottom line, Jesse Joyce is a great comedian. #Quote by Greg Giraldo
Crowds quotes by Dolly Parton
#25. Be the alligator girl. Be whatever your dreams and your luck will let you be. Wear your green cornflakes with pride. Snarl at the crowds, and do your best to make them flinch. Give them a quarter's worth of wonder. #Quote by Dolly Parton
Crowds quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#26. And I have the others in me. Even when I'm far away from them, I am forced to live with them. Even when I'm all alone, crowds surround me. I have no place to flee to, unless I were to flee from myself. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Crowds quotes by Nora Roberts
#27. Better, Cilla thought, to be alone on a quiet night than to be alone in a crowd. Much better. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Crowds quotes by Maureen Daly
#28. Growing up crowds your mind with new thoughts and new feelings so that you forget how you used to think and feel. #Quote by Maureen Daly
Crowds quotes by Mark McGrath
#29. You might be feeling sick or a little down, but the second you hit the stage and hear the crowd, you're ready to perform. That's what a true performer is. #Quote by Mark McGrath
Crowds quotes by Frederick Schiller Faust
#30. Crowds of men are like crowds of sheep. Not the best, but the first leader is usually followed. #Quote by Frederick Schiller Faust
Crowds quotes by Ted Alexandro
#31. It always comes down to what the crowd buys coming out of your mouth, which differs from one comic to the next. #Quote by Ted Alexandro
Crowds quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#32. Loneliness is a good education. You learn the things no crowds can teach and you discover the things no crowds can give. #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Crowds quotes by A. Whitney Brown
#33. There are a billion people in China. It's not easy to be an individual in a crowd of more than a billion people. Think of it. More than a billion people. That means even if you're a one-in-a-million type of guy, there are still a thousand guys exactly like you. #Quote by A. Whitney Brown
Crowds quotes by Donna Tartt
#34. I liked the idea of living in a city - any city, especially a strange one - liked the thought of traffic and crowds, of working in a bookstore, waiting tables in a coffee shop, who knew what kind of solitary life I might slip into? Meals alone, walking the dogs in the evenings; and nobody knowing who I was. #Quote by Donna Tartt
Crowds quotes by Jordan L. Hawk
#35. What was wrong with me? Even a cursory glance at the revelers behind me showed other people had no trouble with boisterous crowds, and some even relished them. And although I might not have minded viewing the kinetoscope, the promise of winning cheap prizes by shooting clay pigeons or tossing a ring onto a milk jug held no appeal for me. I'd rather be curled up in a chair at home, reading a book #Quote by Jordan L. Hawk
Crowds quotes by Julia Child
#36. Being tall is an advantage, especially in business. People will always remember you. And if you're in a crowd, you'll always have some clean air to breathe. #Quote by Julia Child
Crowds quotes by Jason Derulo
#37. It's amazing when you're playing to a crowd who barely understands English but they're singing parts of your song back to you. #Quote by Jason Derulo
Crowds quotes by J. Oswald Sanders
#38. Often the crowd does not recognize a leader until he has gone, and then they build a monument for him with the stones they threw at him in life. #Quote by J. Oswald Sanders
Crowds quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#39. Every time a bank swoops down to snatch up a home, it should be met with a crowd of jeering, obstructive neighbors. And although this may be point 4.5, how about organizing a mass refusal to pay back student loans? #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Crowds quotes by Emily M. Danforth
#40. On the screen it rained and rained confetti, for minutes, and that glitter-rain, plus the cameras flashing and the lights from the billboards and the awesome mass of the crowds in their shiny hats and toothy smiles, made the world pop and shine and blur in a way that makes you sad to be watching it all on your TV screen, in a way that makes you feel like, instead of bringing the action into your living room, the TV cameras are just reminding you of how much you're missing, confronting you with it, you in your pajamas, on your couch, a couple of pizza crusts resting in some orange grease on a paper plate in front of you, your glass of soda mostly flat and watery, the ice all melted, and the good stuff happening miles and miles away from where you're at. #Quote by Emily M. Danforth
Crowds quotes by Cyril Connolly
#41. The English masses are lovable: they are kind, decent, tolerant, practical and not stupid. The tragedy is that they are too many of them, and that they are aimless, having outgrown the servile functions for which they were encouraged to multiply. One day these huge crowds will have to seize power because there will be nothing else for them to do, and yet they neither demand power nor are ready to make use of it; they will learn only to be bored in a new way. #Quote by Cyril Connolly
Crowds quotes by Traci LaRussa
#42. If there is anything I have learned, it is this - we must seek truth and goodness and stop stroking the ego of a crowd. In the words of C.S. Lewis, "Courage, dear heart. #Quote by Traci LaRussa
Crowds quotes by Jim Morrison
#43. Indians scattered on dawn's highway bleeding/Ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind. #Quote by Jim Morrison
Crowds quotes by Andrew Morton
#44. The crowds made it painfully obvious who was the new star of the show--the Princess of Wales. Charles was left apologizing for not having enough wives to go round. If he took one side of the street during a walkabout the crowd collectively groaned, it was his wife they had come to see. "I seem to do nothing but collect flowers these days," he said. "I know my role. #Quote by Andrew Morton
Crowds quotes by Eric Thomas
#45. You must keep your composure. Take charge of the huddle. Be a leader. And silence, the crowd. #Quote by Eric Thomas
Crowds quotes by Gore Vidal
#46. I do not admire 'the people,' as such. No one really does. Their folk wisdom is usually false, their instincts predatory. Even their sense of survival - so highly developed in the individual - goes berserk in the mass. A crowd is a fool. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Crowds quotes by Sam Altman
#47. The crowd's a really powerful force on the Internet, and people finally understand how to harness that. #Quote by Sam Altman
Crowds quotes by Joseph Conrad
#48. ...and the sound of her low voice seemed to have the accompaniment of all the other sounds, full of mystery, desolation, and sorrow, I had ever heard - the ripple of the river, the soughing of the trees swayed by the wind, the murmurs of the crowds, the faint ring of incomprehensible words cried from afar, the whisper of a voice speaking from beyond the threshhold of an eternal darkness. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Crowds quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#49. I hold this to be the highest task of a bond between two people: that each should stand guard over the solitude of the other. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Crowds quotes by Charmaine J Forde
#50. I miss being in Barbados in December,
That is a time I always remember,
The smell of varnish on the wooden floors,
And the smell of paint on the wooden doors
The crowds in de Supermarket,
Buying up the rum,
And the music blasting
Puh rup a pum pum #Quote by Charmaine J Forde
Crowds quotes by Ally Carter
#51. She watched him stop to pat the mayor on the back. He stumbled a little in the crowd, and his left hand disappeared ever so briefly inside the mayor's tuxedo pocket. It was over in a flash, a blink, a second. And Macey was quite certain she was the only person in the entire room to have seen it, but that was just as well. At least, Macey had seen enough. And at last, the boy made sense.
- Double Crossed by Ally Carter #Quote by Ally Carter
Crowds quotes by Dane Cook
#52. Sometimes, when a person gains a lot of success at a very young age, they become targets, and it's really easy to follow the crowds and not make independent decisions based on truly how you feel. #Quote by Dane Cook
Crowds quotes by Ty Cobb
#53. The crowd makes the ballgame. #Quote by Ty Cobb
Crowds quotes by Paul Van Dyk
#54. I don't need to play Beatport Top 10 to get the crowd going #Quote by Paul Van Dyk
Crowds quotes by Max Beerbohm
#55. Our hero's unreasoning rage was fed by a not unreasonable jealousy. It was clear to him that Zuleika had forgotten his existence. To-day, as soon as he had killed her love, she had shown him how much less to her was his love than the crowd's. And now again it was only the crowd she cared for. He followed with his eyes her long slender figure as she threaded her way in and out of the crowd, sinuously, confidingly, producing a penny from one lad's elbow, a threepenny-bit from between another's neck and collar, half a crown from another's hair, and always repeating in that flute-like voice of hers: Well, this is rather queer! #Quote by Max Beerbohm
Crowds quotes by Alan Sillitoe
#56. It was hard to understand, and all I knew was that you had to run, run, run without knowing why you were running, but on you went through fields you didn't understand and into woods that made you afraid, over hills without knowing you'd been up and down, and shooting across streams that would have cut the heart out of you had you fallen into them. And the winning post was no end to it, even though crowds might be cheering you in, because on you had to go before you got your breath back, and the only time you stopped really was when you tripped over a tree trunk and broke your neck or fell into a disused well and stayed dead in the darkness forever. #Quote by Alan Sillitoe
Crowds quotes by Billy Joel
#57. I've always said about 50% of what happens at a concert has to do with the audience. If you play for a dead audience you're gonna stink. If we play for a great crowd we're much better. You want 'em to make noise. It's kinda like sex, if they don't make noise, you ain't doin' it right. #Quote by Billy Joel
Crowds quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#58. Let me never become a slave to crowds. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Crowds quotes by Robin Sharma
#59. Too many among us are afraid to be ourselves. So we give up our dreams to follow the crowd. #Quote by Robin Sharma
Crowds quotes by Jeff Buckley
#60. Fight despite the crowds of the walking dead #Quote by Jeff Buckley
Crowds quotes by J.G. Ballard
#61. The film festival measured a mile in length, from the Martinez to the Vieux Port, where sales executives tucked into their platters of fruits de mer, but was only fifty yards deep. For a fortnight the Croisette and its grand hotels willingly became a facade, the largest stage set in the world. Without realizing it, the crowds under the palm trees were extras recruited to play their traditional roles. As they cheered and hooted, they were far more confident than the film actors on display, who seemed ill at ease when they stepped from their limos, like celebrity criminals ferried to a mass trial by jury at the Palais, a full-scale cultural Nuremberg furnished with film clips of the atrocities they had helped to commit. #Quote by J.G. Ballard
Crowds quotes by James H. Cone
#62. The cross and the lynching tree interpret each other. Both were public spectacles, shameful events, instruments of punishment reserved for the most despised people in society. Any genuine theology and any genuine preaching of the Christian gospel must be measured against the test of the scandal of the cross and the lynching tree. 'Jesus did not die a gentle death like Socrates, with his cup of hemlock....Rather, he died like a [lynched black victim] or a common [black] criminal in torment, on the tree of shame.' The crowd's shout 'Crucify him!' (Mk 15:14) anticipated the white mob's shout 'Lynch him!' Jesus' agonizing final cry of abandonment from the cross, 'My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?' (Mk 15:34), was similar to the lynched victim Sam Hose's awful scream as he drew his last breath, 'Oh, my God! Oh, Jesus.' In each case it was a cruel, agonizing, and contemptible death. #Quote by James H. Cone
Crowds quotes by Jonathan Gould
#63. It is the sound of the crowd that can be heard in the second, crescendoing rush of the orchestra that follows the final verse, rising from a hum to a gasp to a shout... fusing at last to a shriek (its similarity to the sound of the crowds at Beatle concerts is surely no accident). The onrushing sound of the orchestra at the end of "A Day in the Life" has transcended more than the conventions of Sgt. Pepper's Band. It is the nightmare resolution of the Beatles' show within a show. It is the sound in the eras of the high-wire artist as the ground rushes up from below. There is a blinding flash of silence, then the stunning impact of a tremendous E major piano chord that hangs in the air for a small eternity, slowly fading away, a forty-second meditation on finality that leaves each member if the audience listening with a new kind of attention and awareness to the sound of nothing at all. #Quote by Jonathan Gould
Crowds quotes by Esther Hicks
#64. There is never a crowd on the leading edge. #Quote by Esther Hicks
Crowds quotes by Emily Dickinson
#65. Beauty crowds me till I die,
Beauty, mercy have on me!
But if I expire today,
Let it be in sight of thee #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Crowds quotes by Bruce Crown
#66. The sun tried to shine through the clouds but its light was dimmed even in us; high noon approached. I looked outside through the tinted windows at the people promenading down Madison. Couples held hands, bankers squeezed through crowds of window shoppers late for their daily thieving but all of them, even the poor, seemed content with existence, some even seemed happy. Nearly everyone's outer shell was delicate and gracious that at the end of it all, on the border of nonexistence, each and everyone was happy to be alive. Everyone carried their heads with a radiance past the space they occupied and glided through time like flamenco dancers in a studio as big as the planet. Everyone wore masks that hid their sorrow (either that or they were sincerely happy) or wore armor that lightened the burden on their shoulders. Worst of all, I could not detect ever a flicker of thought; brains mired behind viral images and videos of people making even greater fools of themselves than they already were. And as the greatest fool of them all, I walked among them, never having learned to don the mask of happiness. #Quote by Bruce Crown
Crowds quotes by Nigel Mansell
#67. Racing a thoroughbred grand prix car in front of a home crowd will be a surreal and mighty experience. #Quote by Nigel Mansell
Crowds quotes by Suzanne Collins
#68. Instead, I watch myself get shot on television. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Crowds quotes by Jean-Paul Sartre
#69. But I must finally realize that I am subject to these sudden transformations. The thing is that I rarely think; a crowd of small metamorphoses accumulate in me without my noticing it, and then, one fine day, a veritable revolution takes place. #Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre
Crowds quotes by Wislawa Szymborska
#70. Unfortunately, poetry is not born in noise, in crowds, or on a bus. There have to be four walls and the certainty that the telephone will not ring. That's what writing is all about. #Quote by Wislawa Szymborska
Crowds quotes by Aziz Ansari
#71. After you do a joke a few times, you have material that you know works. Although sometimes I have a joke that has worked a bunch of times and then one night it'll flop. And that's when I really take a hard look at myself and say: 'Well, that crowd is obviously wrong. That crowd has absolutely no idea what it's talking about.' #Quote by Aziz Ansari
Crowds quotes by Michele Serros
#72. That's just another privilege for white people, they're allowed to fuck up and they still get the credit and encouragement, especially all these white politicians who start their speeches in shitty Spanish. The crowds always go so crazy! #Quote by Michele Serros
Crowds quotes by Adolf Hitler
#73. [The crowd] will finally succeed in remembering only the simplest concepts repeated a thousand times. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Crowds quotes by Robert Pattinson
#74. I'm just scared of crowds. I just think people require things of me whenever there's a screaming crowd, and I always think I won't be able to provide what they want, so that's why I look scared all the time. #Quote by Robert Pattinson
Crowds quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#75. Mummy dying with it; Christ dying with it, nailed hand and foot; hanging over the bed in the night-nursery; hanging year after year in the dark little study at Farm Street with the shining oilcloth; hanging in the dark church where only the old charwoman raises the dust and one candle burns; hanging at noon, high among the crowds and the soldiers; no comfort except a sponge of vinegar and the kind words of a thief; hanging for ever; never the cool sepulchre and the grave clothes spread on the stone slab, never the oil and spices in the dark cave; always the midday sun and the dice clicking for the seamless coat. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Crowds quotes by Yiyun Li
#76. The boy will remain a son and never become a father. He will be forgotten by the crowd once his blood is rinsed clean from the ground; his sister will think of him but soon she will forget him, too. He will live on only in Han's memory, a child punished not for his own insincerity but someone else's disbelief. #Quote by Yiyun Li
Crowds quotes by Robert M. Lindner
#77. In the crowd, herd, or gang, it is a mass-mind that operates-which is to say, a mind without subtlety, a mind without compassion, a mind, finally, uncivilized. #Quote by Robert M. Lindner
Crowds quotes by Elvis Presley
#78. I get sometimes; I get lonesome right in the middle of a crowd. #Quote by Elvis Presley
Crowds quotes by Robert Sheckley
#79. I sell well now in Russia. I remember one signing in Russia some years ago where the bookstore had two strongmen to hold the crowds back. #Quote by Robert Sheckley
Crowds quotes by Lawren Leo
#80. They kissed in the middle of the sidewalk, letting the crowds of people flow around them like water around an island. #Quote by Lawren Leo
Crowds quotes by Warren Gatland
#81. There's no better feeling than sitting on the team bus travelling to the Millennium Stadium knowing that the team will be playing in front of 74,500 people. You're driven through the crowds where you see the smiles on people's faces and I get a huge buzz out of that. #Quote by Warren Gatland
Crowds quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#82. There are no chains of houses; there are no crowds of men. The colossal diagram of streets and houses is an illusion, the opium dream of a speculative builder. Each of these men is supremely solitary and supremely important to himself. Each of these houses stands in the centre of the world. There is no single house of all those millions which has not seemed to someone at some time the heart of all things and the end of travel. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Crowds quotes by Billy Graham
#83. The great crowds themselves are meaningless. The thing that counts is what happens in the hearts of the people. The evangelist sows the seed, and much inevitably falls upon stony ground and bears no fruit. But if only a few seeds flourish, the results are manifold. #Quote by Billy Graham
Crowds quotes by Edward Carpenter
#84. Where there had been only jeers or taunts at first, crowds come to listen with serious and sympathetic men. #Quote by Edward Carpenter
Crowds quotes by Edward Snowden
#85. There is, simply, no way, to ignore privacy. Because a citizenry's freedoms are interdependent, to surrender your own privacy is really to surrender everyone's. You might choose to give it up out of convenience, or under the popular pretext that privacy is only required by those who have something to hide. But saying that you don't need or want privacy because you have nothing to hide is to assume that no one should have, or could have to hide anything – including their immigration status, unemployment history, financial history, and health records. You're assuming that no one, including yourself, might object to revealing to anyone information about their religious beliefs, political affiliations and sexual activities, as casually as some choose to reveal their movie and music tastes and reading preferences. Ultimately, saying that you don't care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different from saying you don't care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say. Or that you don't care about freedom of the press because you don't like to read. Or that you don't care about freedom of religion because you don't believe in God. Or that you don't care about the freedom to peaceably assemble because you're a lazy, antisocial agoraphobe. Just because this or that freedom might not have meaning to you today doesn't mean that that it doesn't or won't have meaning tomorrow, to you, or to your neighbor – or to the crowds of principled dissidents I was follo #Quote by Edward Snowden
Crowds quotes by Jim Copeland
#86. It's not fear of striking out that makes me reluctant to step up to the plate. It's the fear of getting hit in the head by a 90 mph fastball, the pitcher coming off of the mound to stomp me with her cleats while I am down, the rest of the opposing team rushing out of the dugout hurling insults as they kick me and spit on me, while all along the crowd in the stands is cheering them on and laughing at my failure. So, no, it's not the fear of striking out that keeps me from stepping up to the plate. #Quote by Jim Copeland
Crowds quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
#87. A thousand wheels of labor are turned by dear affections, and kept in motion by self-sacrificing endurance; and the crowds that pour forth in the morning and return at night are daily procession of love and duty. #Quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Crowds quotes by Beverley Nichols
#88. One of the many reasons why gardens are increasingly precious to us in this day and age is that they help us to escape from the tyranny of speed. Our skies are streaked with jets, our roads have turned to race-tracks, and in the cities the crowds rush to and fro as though the devil were at their heels. But as soon as we open the garden gate, Time seems almost to stand still, slowing down to the gentle ticking of the Clock of the Universe. #Quote by Beverley Nichols
Crowds quotes by Alexandra Adornetto
#89. Molly: So how do you think of Bryce Hamilton crowd so far? Boys hot enough for you?
Bethany: I wouldn't say hot. Most of them seem to have a normal body temperature. #Quote by Alexandra Adornetto
Crowds quotes by Julie Doucet
#90. I wish my work would be recognized by a larger crowd of people as more art than be stuck with the cartoonist label for the rest of my life. #Quote by Julie Doucet
Crowds quotes by Frederick Lenz
#91. If you are liberated then you can be in the crowd and there is no crowd. You can be surrounded by the world and their is no world. You have shattered the prism of illusion. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Crowds quotes by Myles Munroe
#92. We will never obtain God's kind of marriage simply by going along with the crowd, doing what everybody else does. We have to dig deep into the heart of God to discover His principles. #Quote by Myles Munroe
Crowds quotes by Maggie Georgiana Young
#93. I always imagined rape as this violent scene of a woman walking alone down a dark alley and getting mugged and beaten by some masked criminal. Rape was an angry man forcing himself inside a damsel in distress. I would not carry the trauma of a cliché rape victim. I would not shriek in the midst of my slumber with night terrors. I would not tremble at the sight of every dark haired man or the mention of Number 1's name. I would not even harbor ill will towards him. My damage was like a cigarette addiction- subtle, seemingly innocent, but everlasting and inevitably detrimental.
Number 1 never opened his screen door to furious crowds waving torches and baseball bats. Nobody punched him out in my honor. The Nightfall crowd never socially ostracized him. Even the ex-boyfriend who'd second handedly fused the entire fiasco continued to mingle with him in drug circles. Everybody continued with business as usual. And when I told my parents I lost my virginity against my will, unconscious on a bathroom floor, Carl did not erupt in fury and demand I give him all I knew about his whereabouts so he could greet him with a rifle. Mom blankly shrugged and mumbled, "Oh, that's too bad," and drifted into the kitchen as if I'd received a stubbed toe rather than a shredded hymen.
Everyone in my life took my rape as lightly as a brief thunderstorm that might have been frightening when it happened, but was easy to forget about. I adopted that mentality as the foundation of my sex life #Quote by Maggie Georgiana Young
Crowds quotes by Thia Megia
#94. Once I'm on stage, the energy of the crowd wipes my nerves away. #Quote by Thia Megia
Crowds quotes by Marjoe Gortner
#95. As a preacher, I'm working with the crowd, watching the crowd, trying to bring them to that high point at a certain time in the evening. I let everything build up to that moment when they're all in ecstasy. The crowd builds up and you have to watch it that you don't stop it. You start off saying you've heard that tonight's going to be a great night; then you begin the whole pitch and keep it rolling. #Quote by Marjoe Gortner
Crowds quotes by Simon Kuper
#96. The theory of the "wisdom of crowds" says that if you aggregate many different opinions from a diverse group of people, you are much more likely to arrive at the best opinion than if you just listen to one specialist. #Quote by Simon Kuper
Crowds quotes by Andre Breton
#97. The purest surrealist act is walking into a crowd with a loaded gun and firing into it randomly #Quote by Andre Breton
Crowds quotes by Liz Braswell
#98. Mermaid queens didn't often have a reason to move quickly. There were no wars to direct, no assassination attempts to evade, no crowds of clamoring admirers to avoid among the merfolk. In fact, slowness and calm were expected of royalty.
So Ariel found herself thoroughly enjoying the exercise as she beat her tail against the water- even as it winded her a little. She missed dashing through shipwrecks with Flounder, fleeing sharks, trying to scoot back home before curfew. She loved the feel of her powerful muscles, the way the current cut around her when she twisted her shoulders to go faster.
She hadn't been this far up in years and gulped as the pressure of the deep faded. She clicked her ears, readying them for the change of environment. Colors faded and transformed around her from the dark, heady slate of the ocean bottom to the soothing azure of the middle depths and finally lightening to the electric, magical periwinkle that heralded the burst into daylight.
She hadn't planned to break through the surface triumphantly. She wouldn't give it that power. Her plan was to take it slow and rise like a whale. Casually, unperturbed, like Ooh, here I am.
But somehow her tail kicked in twice as hard the last few feet, and she exploded into the warm sunlit air like she had been drowning.
She gulped again and tasted the breeze- dry in her mouth; salt and pine and far-distant fires and a thousand alien scents. #Quote by Liz Braswell
Crowds quotes by Sophie Jordan
#99. Thanks for getting me out of there," I murmur, lacing my fingers around my knees, and looking up at him on his step.
"Yeah. You looked a little green. "
"I don't handle crowds too well. I've always been that way, I guess."
"You might get in trouble," he warns, staring at me in that strange, hungry way that unravels me. He strokes his bottom lip with a finger. For a flash of a second, his eyes look strange. Different. All glowing irises and thin dark pupils. Almost drake-like. I blink to clear my vision. His eyes are normal again. Just my imagination in overdrive. I'm probably projecting missing home and Az - everything--onto him. "Pep rallies are mandatory," he continues. "A lot of people saw you leave. Teachers included."
"They saw you leave, too," I point out.
He leans to the side, propping an elbow on one of the steps behind him. "I'm not worried about that. I've been in trouble before." He smiles a crooked grin and holds up crossed fingers. "The principal and I are like this. The guy loves me. Really."
Laughter spills from me, rusty and hoarse.
His grin makes me feel good. Free. Like I'm not running from anything. Like I could stay here in this world, if only I have him.
The thought unsettles me. Sinks heavily in my chest. Because I can't have him. Not really. All he can ever be for me is a temporary fix.
"But you're worried I'll get in trouble?" I try not to show how much this pleases me. I've managed to ignore him for days n #Quote by Sophie Jordan
Crowds quotes by Fuxi
#100. Before the beginning of brilliance, there must be great chaos. Before a brilliant person begins something great, they must look foolish in the crowd. #Quote by Fuxi
Crowds quotes by Anthony Jeselnik
#101. I think a theater show is a pure version of me doing my material. The theater crowd is a bit more polite, there really aren't hecklers, and there are a lot of people there to see me, and they're excited about the jokes and hanging out with me for a show. #Quote by Anthony Jeselnik
Crowds quotes by John Updike
#102. Revolution is just one crowd taking power from another. #Quote by John Updike
Crowds quotes by Emily Dickinson
#103. I am growing handsome very fast indeed! I expect I shall be the belle of Amherst when I reach my 17th year. I don't doubt that I shall have perfect crowds of admirers at that age. Then how I shall delight to make them await my bidding, and with what delight shall I witness their suspense while I make my final decision. #Quote by Emily Dickinson
Crowds quotes by Albert Camus
#104. No matter what cause one defends, it will suffer permanent disgrace if one resorts to blind attacks on crowds of innocent people. #Quote by Albert Camus
Crowds quotes by William Klein
#105. Sometimes, I'd take shots without aiming, just to see what happened. I'd rush into crowds - bang! bang! ... It must be close to what a fighter feels after jabbing and circling and getting hit, when suddenly there's an opening, and bang! Right on the button. It's a fantastic feeling. #Quote by William Klein
Crowds quotes by Gustave Le Bon
#106. A crowd thinks in images, and the image itself calls up a series of other images, having no logical connection with the first ... A crowd scarcely distinguishes between the subjective and the objective. It accepts as real the images invoked in its mind, though they most often have only a very distant relation with the observed facts ... Crowds being only capable of thinking in images are only to be impressed by images. #Quote by Gustave Le Bon
Crowds quotes by Anthony Doerr
#107. There is pride, too, though - pride that he has done it alone. That his daughter is so curious, so resilient. There is the humility of being a father to someone so powerful, as if he were only a narrow conduit for another, greater thing. That's how it feels right now, he thinks, kneeling beside her, rinsing her hair: as though his love for his daughter will outstrip the limits of his body. The walls could fall away, even the whole city, and the brightness of that feeling would not wane. The drain moans; the cluttered house crowds in close. #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Crowds quotes by Mary E. Pearson
#108. I knew why he chose the brown. It was the plainest of my dresses, certainly drab in his eyes, but all the better to contrast and showcase the red he'd have me wear tomorrow. I had no doubt he'd ordered the snow itself as the perfect backdrop, and surely he'd ordered the sun to shine in the morning so as not to deter the crowds. #Quote by Mary E. Pearson
Crowds quotes by Evonne Goolagong Cawley
#109. Neither winning nor losing means as much to me as knowing the crowd has enjoyed my match. Some players feel that winning is everything and that losing is a disaster. Not me. I want the spectators to take home a good memory ... #Quote by Evonne Goolagong Cawley
Crowds quotes by Iliza Shlesinger
#110. We've all been there, onstage. You say something you don't mean, you make fun of something on accident but ... This wasn't that. This wasn't crowd work. This was a rehearsed set. This was pointed. #Quote by Iliza Shlesinger
Crowds quotes by Anonymous

Crowds quotes by Donna Leon
#112. They walked slowly, taking the shortest way, deliberately cutting through Campo delle Fava to avoid the crowds in Calle della Bissa. When they arrived at the foot of the Rialto bridge, they looked up at it, horrified. Anthill, termites, wasps. Ignoring these thoughts, they locked arms and started up, eyes on their feet and the area immediately in front of them. Up, up, up as feet descended towards them, but they ignored them and didn't stop. Up, up, up and across the top, shoving their way through the motionless people, deaf to their admiration. Then down, down, down, the momentum of their descent making them more formidable, They saw the feet of the people coming up towards them dance to the side at their approach, hardened their hearts to their protests, and plunged ahead. Then left and into the underpass, where they stopped, Brunetti's pulse raced and Paola leaned helpless on his arm.

"I can't stand it any more," Paola said and pressed her forehead against his shoulder. #Quote by Donna Leon
Crowds quotes by Mulk Raj Anand
#113. The hand of nature was stretching itself out towards him, for the tall grass on the slopes of the Bulashah Hills was in sight, and he had opened his heart to it, lifted by the cool breeze that wafted him away from the crowds, the ugliness and the noise of the outcastes' street. He looked across at the swaying loveliness before him and the little hillocks over which it spread under a sunny sky, so transcendingly blue and beautiful that he felt like standing dumb and motionless before it. He listened to the incoherent whistling of the shrubs. They were the voices he knew so well. He was glad that his friends were ahead of him and that the thrum was not broken, for the curve of his soul seemed to bend over the heights, straining to woo nature in solitude and silence. It seemed to him he would be unhappy if he heard even one human voice. His inside seemed to know that it wouldn't be soothed if there were the slightest obstruction between him and the outer world. It didn't even occur to him to ask why he had come here. He was just swamped by the merest fringe of the magnificent fields that spread before him. He had been startled into an awareness of the mystery of vegetable moods. #Quote by Mulk Raj Anand
Crowds quotes by Ted Alexandro
#114. I don't really worry about a crowd liking me. #Quote by Ted Alexandro
Crowds quotes by Pat Conroy
#115. It is an art form to hate New York City properly. So far I have always been a featherweight debunker of New York; it takes too much energy and endurance to record the infinite number of ways the city offends me. Were I to list them all, I would fill up a book the size of the Manhattan yellow pages, and that would merely be the prologue. Every time I submit myself to the snubs and indignities of that swaggering city and set myself adrift among the prodigious crowds, a feeling of displacement, profound and enervating, takes me over, killing all the coded cells of my hard-won singularity. The city marks my soul with a most profane, indelible graffiti. There is too much of too much there. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Crowds quotes by Leonel Manzano
#116. (On returning to Austin to run at his collegiate stadium) It is almost like coming home with the crowd, the people, and it just brings it home for me. For me, it is a very special place, it is great energy, and again I always seem to run very well here. So I love coming back. #Quote by Leonel Manzano
Crowds quotes by Peter Steele
#117. I don't believe in, and I am a devout non-believer, in playing new songs live if the subjected and pathetic crowd has not heard them before because I consider it like mass psychosis and genocidal. #Quote by Peter Steele
Crowds quotes by Andrew Marvell
#118. But Fate does iron wedges drive,
And always crowds itself betwixt. #Quote by Andrew Marvell
Crowds quotes by Harry Redknapp
#119. You come here to Anfield, you stand there and listen to that crowd, and it's the greatest sight in football. #Quote by Harry Redknapp
Crowds quotes by Gustave Le Bon
#120. Being well acquainted with the psychology of castes, and also with the psychology of other categories of crowds, I do not perceive a single case in which, wrongly accused of a crime, I should not prefer to have to deal with a jury rather than with magistrates. I should have some chance that my innocence would be recognised by the former and not the slightest chance that it would be admitted by the latter. The power of crowds is to be dreaded, but the power of certain castes is to be dreaded yet more. Crowds are open to conviction; castes never are. #Quote by Gustave Le Bon
Crowds quotes by Nicholas Kristof
#121. During the Arab Spring, I learned all sorts of things from Twitter. I wouldn't necessarily trust that information, but it gave me ideas about questions to ask. You can really learn things from the wisdom of crowds. #Quote by Nicholas Kristof
Crowds quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#122. Now off the escalator and into the casino, big crowds still tight around the crap tables. Who are these people? These faces! Where do they come from? They look like caricatures of used-car dealers from Dallas. But they're real. And, sweet Jesus, there are a hell of a lot of them – still screaming around these desert-city crap tables at four-thirty on a Sunday morning. Still humping the American Dream, that vision of the Big Winner somehow emerging from the last- minute pre-dawn chaos of a stale Vegas casino. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Crowds quotes by Gustave Le Bon
#123. Crowds exhibit a docile respect for force, And are but slightly impressed by kindness, Which for them is scarcely other than a form of weakness. Their sympathies have never been bestowed upon easy going masters, but the tyrants who vigorously oppressed them. It is to these latter that they always erect the loftiest statues. It is true that they willingly trample on the despot whom they have stripped of his power, but it is because having lost his power he resumes his place among the feeble who are to be despised because they are not to be feared. The type of hero dear to a crowd will always have the semblance of a Caesar, His insignia attract them, His authority overawes them, and his sword instils them with fear. #Quote by Gustave Le Bon
Crowds quotes by Peter Carey
#124. 7. Some Theories that Arose at the Time
1. The world is merely a dream dreamt by god who is waking after a long sleep. When he is properly awake the world will disappear completely. When the world disappears we will disappear with it and be happy.
2. The world has become sensitive to light. In the same way that prolonged use of, say, penicillin can suddenly result in a dangerous allergy, prolonged exposure of the world to the sun has made it sensitive to light.
The advocates of this theory could be seen bustling through the city crowds in their long, hooded black robes.
3. The fact that the world is disappearing has been caused by the sloppy work of the Cartographers and the census takers. Those who filled out their census forms incorrectly would lose those items they had neglected to describe. People overlooked in the census by impatient officials would also disappear. A strong pressure group demanded that a new census be taken quickly before matters got worse.

Crowds quotes by David Platt
#125. Do you believe that Jesus is worth abandoning everything for? Do you believe him enough to obey him and to follow him wherever he leads, even when the crowds in our culture - maybe even our churches - turn the other way? #Quote by David Platt
Crowds quotes by Joel Osteen

Crowds quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#127. Adrian, the Emperor, exclaimed incessantly, when dying, That the crowd of physicians had killed him. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Crowds quotes by Terry Goodkind
#128. But who I was, who you loved, no longer exists. I have passed on. In your world, only my memory can exist. Your loyalty to me because of that memory is a part of life, but it can become disloyalty to yourself if you hold it so closely that it crowds out the rest of life. #Quote by Terry Goodkind
Crowds quotes by Ernest Thompson Seton
#129. Amid the cheering of the crowds, he hardly heard his master's voice, but he saw the familiar head and shoulders, and the bright flag he was waving. He raced toward the seven-foot fence; without apparent effort he rose in the air and cleared the top with a good hand-breadth to spare; then dashed up to his master that he loved, and gamboled there and licked his hand in heart-full joy. Again the victor's crown was his, and the master, a man of dogs, caressed the head of shining black with the jewel eyes of gold. #Quote by Ernest Thompson Seton
Crowds quotes by Dion Fortune
#130. It's quite simple and natural if you think it out. The old pagan Britons were in the habit of having fairs when they assembled at their holy centres for the big sun festivals. The fairs went on just the same, whether they were pagan or Christian, and the missionary centres grew up where the crowds came together. When the king was converted, they just changed the Sun for the Son. The common people never knew the difference. They went for the fun of the fair and took part in the ceremonies to bring good luck and make the fields fertile. How were they to know the difference between Good Friday and the spring ploughing festival? There was a human sacrifice on both occasions. #Quote by Dion Fortune
Crowds quotes by Vera Wang
#131. The way a dancer can bring the crowd to its feet with a drawn-out, well-executed pirouette is the excitement I wanted to capture with this design. #Quote by Vera Wang
Crowds quotes by David Platt

Crowds quotes by Ida B. Wells
#134. The nineteenth century lynching mob cuts off ears, toes, and fingers, strips off flesh, and distributes portions of the body as souvenirs among the crowd. #Quote by Ida B. Wells
Crowds quotes by Salman Rushdie
#135. A son who will never be older than his motherland - neither older nor younger. There shall be two heads – but you will only see one – there will be knees and a nose, a nose and knees. Newspaper praises him, two mothers raise him! Bicycles love him – but crowds will shove him! Sisters will weep, cobras will creep… Washing will hide him – voices will guide him! Friends will mutilate him – blood will betray him! Spittoons will brain him – doctors will drain him – jungle will claim him – wizards reclaim him! Soldiers will try him – tyrants will fry him… He will have sons without having sons! He will be old before he is old! And he will die before he is dead! #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Crowds quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#136. You can do beautiful things with your friends; you can do beautiful things when you are all alone! In togetherness, listen to the music of the crowds; in solitude, listen to the music of the silence! Be neither afraid of the crowds, nor of the loneliness, because both are blessings! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Crowds quotes by Mary Heaton Vorse
#137. It was the spirit of the workers that was dangerous. The tired, gray crowds ebbing and flowing perpetually into the mills had waked and opened their mouths to sing. #Quote by Mary Heaton Vorse
Crowds quotes by Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
#138. Do not crowd the understanding; it can comprehend so much and no more. A pint pot will not contain the measure of a quart. #Quote by Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
Crowds quotes by Austin Peck
#139. I think any actor would agree that you can't replace theater. It's immediate. You have the energy of the crowd and every single night it's different. #Quote by Austin Peck
Crowds quotes by Wilfrid
#140. I rail against writers who talk about the loneliness of it all - what do they want, a crowd looking over their typewriters? Or those who talk about having to stare at a blank page - do they want someone to write on it? #Quote by Wilfrid
Crowds quotes by Patrick Ness
#141. If a crowd can flinch, they flinch. More than a thousand men flinch under the fist of just one. I don't see what the women do. #Quote by Patrick Ness
Crowds quotes by Bill Vaughan
#142. The United States grants the favors of the second, third, or fifty-seventh chance, and its citizens remain free to invent for themselves whatever character draws a crowd or pays the rent. #Quote by Bill Vaughan
Crowds quotes by Gustave Le Bon
#143. The characteristics of the reasoning of crowds are the association of dissimilar things possessing a merely apparent connection between each other, and the immediate generalisation of particular cases. It is arguments of this kind that are always presented to crowds by those who know how to manage them. #Quote by Gustave Le Bon
Crowds quotes by Jeffery Deaver
#144. I always carried in my breast or hip pocket a video camera disguised as a pen. It was linked to software whose algorithms alerted me that the body language of a person approaching was consistent with that of an impending attack. I also used it to record crowds in public when I was transporting principals, to see if faces of passersby in one locale turn up in another. A #Quote by Jeffery Deaver
Crowds quotes by Heraclitus
#145. What use are these people's wits, who let themselves be led by speechmakers, in crowds, without considering how many fools and thieves they are among, and how few
choose the good?

The best choose progress toward one thing, a name forever honored by the gods, while others eat their way toward sleep like nameless oxen. #Quote by Heraclitus
Crowds quotes by Michael Douglas
#146. It's difficult for me to meet women because my crowd is much older. I know that for some of the young women I do meet, a relationship with me can be envisioned as a benefit to their career. #Quote by Michael Douglas
Crowds quotes by Natalie MacMaster
#147. Celtic music will always be around, even if with the mainstream crowds it dies out. #Quote by Natalie MacMaster
Crowds quotes by Rob Zombie
#148. Sometimes I'll go out into the crowd and keep singing, but I'll get maybe seven rows out and I'm out of synch, I'm a couple seconds behind the band and then it becomes chaos. #Quote by Rob Zombie
Crowds quotes by Ian Bogost
#149. If adults also don't live in a world designed for us. Climate, entropy, accident, crowds, happenstance, erosion, heartbreak - we are fools to think that we are in control of the universe. Children are right to allow the humility of their smallness to rule the day. My misery gives way to fun when you take an object, event, situation, or scenario that wasn't designed for you, that isn't invested in you, that isn't concerned in the slightest for your experience of it, and then treat it as if it were. #Quote by Ian Bogost
Crowds quotes by Horace Mann
#150. Love not only occupies the higher lobes of the brain, but crowds out the lower to make room for its expansion. #Quote by Horace Mann

Crowds quotes by John Clare
#152. Summer is a prodigal of joy. The grass Swarms with delighted insects as I pass, And crowds of grasshoppers at every stride Jump out all ways with happiness their guide; And from my brushing feet moths flit away In safer places to pursue their play. In crowds they start. I marvel, well I may, To see such worlds of insects in the way, And more to see each thing, however small, Sharing joy's bounty that belongs to all. And here I gather, by the world forgot, Harvests of comfort from their happy mood, Feeling God's blessing dwells in every spot And nothing lives but owes him gratitude. #Quote by John Clare
Crowds quotes by Kristen Johnston
#153. I like people-watching and fading into crowds. #Quote by Kristen Johnston

Crowds quotes by Bob Saget
#155. 25, 30 years ago, that meant something, they were making some money. And they were doing all sorts of comedy, screaming at the audience, basically crowd control. And then there was the whole urban comedy scene. #Quote by Bob Saget

Crowds quotes by Caroline B. Cooney

Crowds quotes by Charles Bukowski
#158. You know the typical crowd, Wow, it's Friday night, what are you going to do? Just sit there? Well, yeah. Because there's nothing out there. It's stupidity. Stupid people mingling with stupid people. Let them stupidify themselves. I've never been bothered with the need to rush out into the night. That's all. Sorry for all the millions, but I've never been lonely. I like myself. I'm the best form of entertainment I have. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Crowds quotes by Bobby Lee
#159. I love Dallas, Austin and Houston. Why? Because some of the best comedians, like Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison, started their careers in Texas, and because the crowds there are comedy-educated. #Quote by Bobby Lee
Crowds quotes by Stephen Crane
#160. Such an assemblage of the spraddle-legged men of the middle class, whose hands were bent and shoulders stooped from delving and constructing, had never appeared to an Asbury Park summer crowd, and the latter was vaguely amused. #Quote by Stephen Crane

Crowds quotes by Bill Hayes
#165. I've lived in New York long enough to understand why some people hate it here: the crowds, the noise, the traffic, the expense, the rents; the messed-up sidewalks and pothole-pocked streets; the weather that brings hurricanes named after girls that break your heart and take away everything.
It requires a certain kind of unconditional love to love living here. But New York repays you in time in memorable encounters, at the very least. Just remember: ask first, don't grab, be fair, say please and thank you- even if you don't get something back right away. You will. #Quote by Bill Hayes
Crowds quotes by Paul Kantner
#166. Then you get to be involved with all the people, meet all the beautiful girls, get all the good food, get ready and locked in before all the crowds hit. #Quote by Paul Kantner

Crowds quotes by Dustin Moskovitz
#169. There's a lot of complacency in philanthropy. People figure organizations are trying to do good, and that's enough, even if the results aren't there. But that's wasteful and inefficient. It crowds out better programs. #Quote by Dustin Moskovitz
Crowds quotes by Tommy Tenney
#170. I used to pursue preaching good sermons and great crowds, and attempt great accomplishments for Him. But I've been ruined. Now I'm a God chaser. Nothing else matters anymore. I tell you that as your brother in Christ, I love you. But I love Him more. I couldn't care less about what other people or ministers think about me. I'm going after God. That's not a pride thing; it's a hunger thing. When you pursue God with all your heart, soul, and body, He will turn to meet you and you will come out of it ruined for the world. #Quote by Tommy Tenney
Crowds quotes by Lisa Kleypas

Crowds quotes by Simone Weil

Crowds quotes by Hugh Howey
#175. I'm a chipper guy, once you get to know the raw, dark dread and petrified fear that lurks in my breast and that I battle with every waking moment and that sometimes has me sobbing into my palms when no one is around and makes it really hard to be in crowds or to stand any loud sounds and has me thinking I'll probably never be in a functional relationship again, platonic or otherwise. Once you get that, you have to say to yourself, Hey, why's this guy so damn happy all the time? #Quote by Hugh Howey
Crowds quotes by Peter Morgan

Crowds quotes by Derek Ridgers
#179. I started out, in the mid-'70s, taking photographs of rock bands that I liked but not because I really wanted to photograph them. Initially, I was pretending to be a photographer, simply so that I could go up to the front of the crowd and be a bit closer to the bands. But, I found I was gradually developing an interest in the photos I took. #Quote by Derek Ridgers
Crowds quotes by Gustave Le Bon
#180. Without consistency and without a future, it has all the transitory characteristics of crowds. Its civilisation is now without stability, and at the mercy of every chance. The populace is sovereign, and the tide of barbarism mounts. The civilisation may still seem brilliant because it possesses an outward front, the work of a long past, but it is in reality an edifice crumbling to ruin, which nothing supports, and destined to fall in at the first storm. To pass in pursuit of an ideal from the barbarous to the civilised state, and then, when this ideal has lost its virtue, to decline and die, such is the cycle of the life of a people. #Quote by Gustave Le Bon
Crowds quotes by Julian Fellowes
#181. We live a life that is often spent in crowds - parties, festivals and first nights - so it's nice to avoid them. #Quote by Julian Fellowes
Crowds quotes by Bernard Pomerance
#182. To live with his physical hideousness, incapacitating deformities and unremiting pain is trial enough, but to be exposed to the cruelly lacerating expressions of horror and disgust by all who behold him -- is even more difficult to bear. [...] For in order to survive, Merrick forces himself to suffer these humiliations, I repeat, humiliations, in order to survive, thus he exposes himself to crowds who pay to gape and yawp at this freak of nature, the Elephant Man. #Quote by Bernard Pomerance
Crowds quotes by Dick Pound
#183. I'm very impressed. All the crowds I've seen are very enthusiastic. It's not the first time every seat hasn't been sold at the Winter Olympics. #Quote by Dick Pound
Crowds quotes by Zendaya
#184. I am scared of spiders! And I still get a little afraid every time I have to do something new or have to get out in front of a big crowd. The first time I sang "Swag It Out" live, I was really scared. #Quote by Zendaya
Crowds quotes by Ted Alexandro
#185. A crowd is the only way to know if something works. Telling a friend or two doesn't matter. A crowd is what tells you what works or doesn't, so I'd rather go in front of them cold and see. #Quote by Ted Alexandro
Crowds quotes by Michka Assayas
#186. You have so mamy different personas. The one i meet in Dublin, the one who speaks on the phone.
There are a few other bonos: the one who writes in the morning, the one who performs in front of crowds, the one who addresses U.S congressmen, and of course the one who now sits on the board of elevation partners.
Of course the same person shelters all those different roles.
All art is an attempt to identify yourself. You try out many different characters on the way to finding the one that most fits you, and therefore is you. I mean, all children do. I'm adolescence, you see them trying out different sides of their personality. So I'm just exploring and trying to find out what I'm capable of. #Quote by Michka Assayas
Crowds quotes by George L. Mosse
#187. Georges Sorel, to whom fascism is so much indebted, wrote at the beginning of our century that all great movements are compelled by 'myths.' A myth is the strongest belief held by the group, and its adherents feel themselves to be an army of truth fighting an army of evil. Some years earlier, in 1895, the French psychologist Gustav Le Bon had written of the 'conservatism of crowds' which cling tenaciously to traditional ideas. Hitler took the basic nationalism of the German tradition and the longing for stable personal relationships of olden times, and built upon them as the strongest belief of the group. In the diffusion of the 'myth' Hitler fulfilled what Le Bon had forecast: that 'magical powers' were needed to control the crowd. The Fuhrer himself wrote of the 'magic influence' of mass suggestion and the liturgical aspects of his movement, and its success as a mass religion bore out the truth of this view. #Quote by George L. Mosse
Crowds quotes by Noel Gallagher
#188. There was a euphoria in the music and the way it was delivered, and as the crowds started to get bigger, it fed off itself until it became less about the band and more about being with all those people jumping up and down, drunk to the music. #Quote by Noel Gallagher
Crowds quotes by Scott Steiner
#189. DDP, when I look at you, I see white trash! When I look at the people in the crowd, I see white trash. So maybe you are the people's champion! #Quote by Scott Steiner
Crowds quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#190. The devil has made it his business to monopolize on three elements: noise, hurry, crowds. He will not allow quietness. #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Crowds quotes by Jennifer Pahlka
#191. Are we just going to be a crowd of voices, or are we going to be a crowd of hands? #Quote by Jennifer Pahlka
Crowds quotes by Leslie Ludy
#192. A true leader must have enough backbone to stand alone, even when the crowd wants to take the easy road home. A true leader cannot be dependent on companionship for his or her security, but must learn to trust in God alone. Singleness can give us the kind of backbone - courage, confidence, and leadership skills that an effective Christian must learn. #Quote by Leslie Ludy
Crowds quotes by Marie De Gournay
#193. If men pride themselves on the fact that Jesus Christ was born of their sex, the answer is that this was necessary for the sake of decency, for if he had been a woman, it would have been impossible for Jesus to go out at all hours of the day and the night and mingle with the crowds to convert them and to help and save mankind, without creating a scandal ... #Quote by Marie De Gournay
Crowds quotes by Isabelle Eberhardt
#194. The savage hatred I feel for crowds is getting worse, natural enemies that they are of imagination and of thought. #Quote by Isabelle Eberhardt
Crowds quotes by Michael Parenti
#195. Most social revolutions begin peaceably. Why would it be other-wise? Who would not prefer to assemble and demonstrate rather than engage in mortal combat against pitiless forces that enjoy every advantage in mobility and firepower? Revolutions in Russia, China, Vietnam, and El Salvador all began peacefully, with crowds of peasants and workers launching nonviolent protests only to be met with violent oppression from the authorities. Peaceful protest and reform are exactly what the people are denied by the ruling oligarchs. The dissidents who continue to fight back, who try to defend themselves from the oligarchs' repressive fury, are then called "violent revolutionaries" and "terrorists. #Quote by Michael Parenti
Crowds quotes by Michael Connelly
#196. The Strip was still lit by a million neon lights, though the crowds on the sidewalk had greatly decreased by this hour. Still, Bosch was awed by the spectacle of light. In every imaginable color and configuration, it was a megawatt funnel of enticement to greed that burned twenty-four hours a day. Bosch felt the same attraction that all the other grinders felt tug at them. Las Vegas was like one of the hookers on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Even happily married men at least glanced their way, if only for a second, just to get an idea what was out there, maybe give them something to think about. Las Vegas was like that. There was a visceral attraction here. The bold promise of money and sex. But the first was a broken promise, a mirage, and the second was fraught with danger, expense, physical and mental risk. It was where the real gambling took place in this town. #Quote by Michael Connelly
Crowds quotes by Mark Twain
#197. We teach them to take their patriotism at second-hand; to shout with the largest crowd without examining into the right or wrong of the matter
exactly as boys under monarchies are taught and have always been taught. We teach them to regard as traitors, and hold in aversion and contempt, such as do not shout with the crowd, and so here in our democracy we are cheering a thing which of all things is most foreign to it and out of place
the delivery of our political conscience into somebody else's keeping. This is patriotism on the Russian plan. #Quote by Mark Twain
Crowds quotes by Laure Eve
#198. The thing is," he [Fenrin] said softly, "we're all going to die...But the first time you realize do you get over that?" ... "You don't, I think," I [River] said, finally. "You never get over it. The rest of your life is spent knowing it, over you shoulder."
"Are you okay with it?"
"No. But sometimes yes. And then no, again. Sometimes it's okay. Like now. We're drunk. We feel good. But crowds in again. And then you find another way to block out the truth, just so you can get through the day. If we let ourselves see too much truth, it scares us. You have to block it out, or you'd never get anything done. You'd just wander around being perpetually depressed or amazed...That doesn't mean we shouldn't want to see the truth. It's just that maybe we have to see it in stages to be able to understand it. #Quote by Laure Eve
Crowds quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#199. At the back of my life's horizon, where the dreamings of past lives crowd. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Crowds quotes by Chris Gethard
#200. When you try to go back and watch improv on tape, it almost never feels as good as it did when a crowd was laughing at it. #Quote by Chris Gethard
