Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Debasish Mridha

Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Debasish Mridha
#2. A society becomes a breeding ground of violence and terrorism when it closes its door to new ideas and forces the citizens to live in the prison of conforming thoughts. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Debasish Mridha
#3. I love everyone and everything. I belong to everyone and everything. I am a citizen of this world. I created my own universe. I don't want to belong to an ideology or belief system. I don't want to be imprisoned by someone else's conforming thoughts. I only accept that which is beautiful, loving, and kind. I want to belong to this universe until I am gone. We are one; we are kin. So my religion is love and kindness is my prayer. Altruism is my path. Peace is my palace where I dwell with humility and happiness. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by John Bunyan
#4. At the sessions after I was indicted for an upholder and maintainer of unlawful assemblies and conventicles, and for not conforming to the national worship of the church of England; and after some conference there with the justices, they taking my plain dealing with them for a confession, as they termed it, of the indictment, did sentence me to a perpetual banishment, because I refused to conform. So being again delivered up to the jailer's hands, I was had home to prison, and there have lain now complete twelve years, waiting to see what God would suffer these men to do with me. #Quote by John Bunyan
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Sheena Iyengar
#5. It's easy to assume people are conforming when we witness them all choosing the same option, but when we choose that very option ourselves, we have no shortage of perfectly good reasons for why we just happen to be doing the same thing as those other people; they mindlessly conform, but we mindfully choose. This doesn't mean that we're all conformists in denial. It means that we regularly fail to recognize that others' thoughts and behaviors are just as complex and varied as our own. Rather than being alone in a crowd of sheep, we're all individuals in sheep's clothing. #Quote by Sheena Iyengar
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Tosha Michelle
#6. Edges
I am a child throwing rocks into the stream.
Challenging the rushing water.
Raising my fist and daring fate to do it worst.
I am a dancer in the waves of the ocean.
Swaying in time with the tide.
Pirouetting, the current my only friend.
I am the sun, rising across the canyon
Ascending, and shinning down.
Giving the illusion of perception and motion.
I am thoughts like a rolling river.
Water cascading over the rocks of my soul.
Shaping, forming, conforming.
I am the peace of the rain forest.
Basking in solitude
Tranquil, serene, transfixing angles.
Reflecting from within.
Dripping and dropping. Shaking it off.
I am the dust of the galaxy.
Yearning to know itself.
I am the wind.
Wandering. Searching.
A storm brewing from within. #Quote by Tosha Michelle
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Margaret Drabble
#7. I did not realize the dreadful facts of life. I did not know that a pattern forms before we are aware of it, and that what we think we make becomes a rigid prison making us. #Quote by Margaret Drabble
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Mallory Ortberg
#8. first of all she's not my girlfriend second of all denmark is a PRISON #Quote by Mallory Ortberg
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Charlie Engle
#9. There is a tremendous amount of farting in prison. #Quote by Charlie Engle
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Ben Marcus
#10. Terms


BEN MARCUS, THE 1. False map, scroll, caul, or parchment. It is comprised of the first skin. In ancient times, it hung from a pole, where wind and birds inscribed its surface. Every year, it was lowered and the engravings and dents that the wind had introduced were studied. It can be large, although often it is tiny and illegible. Members wring it dry. It is a fitful chart in darkness. When properly decoded (an act in which the rule of opposite perception applies), it indicates only that we should destroy it and look elsewhere for instruction. In four, a chaplain donned the Ben Marcus and drowned in Green River. 2. The garment that is too heavy to allow movement. These cloths are designed as prison structures for bodies, dogs, persons, members. 3. Figure from which the antiperson is derived; or, simply, the antiperson. It must refer uselessly and endlessly and always to weather, food, birds, or cloth, and is produced of an even ratio of skin and hair, with declension of the latter in proportion to expansion of the former. It has been represented in other figures such as Malcolm and Laramie, although aspects of it have been co-opted for uses in John. Other members claim to inhabit its form and are refused entry to the house. The victuals of the antiperson derive from itself, explaining why it is often represented as a partial or incomplete body or system--meaning it is often missing things: a knee, the mouth, shoes, a heart #Quote by Ben Marcus
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Seneca.
#11. But is life really worth so much? Let us examine this; it's a different inquiry. We will offer no solace for so desolate a prison house; we will encourage no one to endure the overlordship of butchers. We shall rather show that in every kind of slavery, the road of freedom lies open. I will say to the man to whom it befell to have a king shoot arrows at his dear ones [Prexaspes], and to him whose master makes fathers banquet on their sons' guts [Harpagus]: 'What are you groaning for, fool?... Everywhere you look you find an end to your sufferings. You see that steep drop-off? It leads down to freedom. You see that ocean, that river, that well? Freedom lies at its bottom. You see that short, shriveled, bare tree? Freedom hangs from it.... You ask, what is the path to freedom? Any vein in your body. #Quote by Seneca.
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Maajid Nawaz
#12. I was in prison with the assassins of the former president of Egypt, Anwar Sadat, who was killed in 1981. Those who weren't executed in that case were given life sentences, and two of those were with me in prison. #Quote by Maajid Nawaz
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Bidzina Ivanishvili
#13. I won't go back on my decision. I'm not afraid of prison, but there are even worse dangers. #Quote by Bidzina Ivanishvili
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Eoin Colfer
#14. Here we go again, boys. Off on another adventure. This time busting Riley's brother out of prison. There will be danger; there will be spills and thrills. There will be knives and there will be guns and there will be people saying stupid things at the worst possible time."
"Probably me!" said Bob cheerfully.
"So we need a motto, something to keep us going when the odds are against us."
"Like the wind beneath our wings?" asked Riley.
"No, not like that. And thanks for putting that song in my head, by the way. #Quote by Eoin Colfer
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Nelson Mandela
#15. In many respects, people on the outside suffered more than those of us in jail. In prison, we ate three times a day, we had clothing, we had free medical services, and we could sleep for 12 hours. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#16. I am a person who believes in asking questions, in not conforming for the sake of conforming. I am deeply dissatisfied - about so many things, about injustice, about the way the world works - and in some ways, my dissatisfaction drives my storytelling. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Michelle Alexander
#17. Those of us who hope to be their allies should not be surprised, if and when this day comes, that when those who have been locked up and locked out finally have to chance to speak and truly be heard, what we hear is rage. The rage may frighten us; it may remind us of riots, uprisings and buildings aflame. We may be tempted to control it or douse it with buckets of doubt, dismay or disbelief. But we should do no such thing. Instead, when a young man who was born in the ghetto and who knows little of life beyond the walls of his prison cell and the invisible cage that has become his life, turns to us in bewilderment and rage, we should do nothing more than look him in the eye and tell him the truth. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Nelson Mandela
#18. Prison itself is a tremendous education in the need for patience and perseverance. It is above all a test of one's commitment. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Sunshine Rodgers
#19. Change was happening and coming quick. You could
feel it, itching at you as you waited desperate for
movement. You had been in a holding pattern for too
long. You had prayed day after day to be released from
what felt like a prison and all the while, you were still
here. Life was still the same, a revolving motion of
people, activity, sleep and food...No passion. No
interest. Just stuck. What you were unaware of was
that Heaven was moving. #Quote by Sunshine Rodgers
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by J.R. Ward
#20. he was ever alone now, set apart from those around him, separated by a divide he could see across but never cover. To be without family was a strange, unseeable prison, the bars of loneliness and rootlessness enclosing ever more tightly as years and experience accumulated, isolating a male such that he touched naught and naught touched him. Darius #Quote by J.R. Ward
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Odilo Globocnik
#21. I know that you observe Christmas Day as you learned it at home. I do not observe it. However, as assistant director of this prison, I allow all the Catholics to observe freely and with some joy this day in this home. #Quote by Odilo Globocnik
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Leonard Jacobson
#22. Awakening is about liberating yourself from the prison that is the world of the mind and daring to be here as all that you are. #Quote by Leonard Jacobson
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Kathy Acker
#23. The part of our being (mentality, feeling, physicality) which is free of all control let's call our 'unconscious'. Since it's free of control, it's our only defense against institutionalized meaning, institutionalized language, control, fixation, judgement, prison.

Ten years ago, it seemed possible to destroy language through language: to destroy language that normalizes and controls by cutting that language. Nonsense would attack the empire-making (empirical) empire of language, the prisons of meaning.

But this nonsense, since it depended on sense, simply pointed back to the normalizing institutions.

What is the language of the 'unconcious'? (If this ideal unconscious or freedom doesn't exist: simply pretend that it does, use fiction, for the sake of survival, for all of our survival.) Its primary language must be taboo, all that is forbidden. Thus an attack on the institutions of prison via language would demand the use of language or languages that are which aren't acceptable, which are forbidden. Language, on one level, constitutes a series of codes and social and historical agreements. Nonsense doesn't per se break down the codes; speaking precisely that which the codes forbid breaks the codes. #Quote by Kathy Acker
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Craig D Lounsbrough
#24. Easter recognizes that I am living in a prison of my own making, and that God is in the demolition business. #Quote by Craig D Lounsbrough
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Kimberly D. Acquaviva
#25. If your organization is not formally committed to a policy of nondiscrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression or gender presentation in its employment practices, you should not expect lesbian,
gay, bisexual, transgender, gender-nonconforming, queer, and/or questioning patients and families to feel safe seeking out your services. #Quote by Kimberly D. Acquaviva
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#26. A man counted only because he had a prison number. One literally became a number: dead or alive - that was unimportant; the life of a "number" was completely irrelevant. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Douglas Clegg
#27. There is more terror in a day of life than there is at the moment of death. It is as if a door has opened to a prison, though you do not believe it is a prison while you exist within it. #Quote by Douglas Clegg
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Nadine Gordimer
#28. The caged eagle become a metaphor for all forms of isolation, the ultimate in imprisonment. A zoo is prison. #Quote by Nadine Gordimer
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Larken Rose
#29. There is a certain feeling of comfort and safety that one gets by conforming and obeying. Believing that things are in someone else's hands, and having trust that someone else will make things right, is a way to avoid responsibility. #Quote by Larken Rose
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
#30. I called to the Lord from my narrow prison and He answered me in the freedom of space. #Quote by Viktor E. Frankl
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Darynda Jones
#31. Do you really think you'd go to hell?"
"No. As a god, I'd go to a prison dimension, I suppose."
"I think you've seen the inside of enough prisons to last you a few million years. And besides, why would you go there? You've done nothing wrong, Reyes."
He offered me a sad smile and looked away. #Quote by Darynda Jones
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Jacque Fresco
#32. The question is not whether there is intelligent life out there, the question is, whether there is intelligent life down here. As long as you have war, police, prisons, crime, you are in the early stages of civilization. #Quote by Jacque Fresco
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Vladimir Putin
#33. Prisons where people can't even work is the worst punishment you can think of. And I don't think we should put all convicts in such facilities where people are deprived of their freedom. #Quote by Vladimir Putin
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Scott Thompson
#34. When we became teenagers boredom grew like a moth in a cocoon fighting to escape, and the peace created by our parents became a prison. We sought excitement and adventure. We sought anything but the sinless, pure, and average of the faux idyllic. #Quote by Scott Thompson
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#35. At the final day, the Savior will not ask about the nature of our callings. He will not inquire about our material possessions or fame. He will ask if we ministered to the sick, gave food and drink to the hungry, visited those in prison, or gave succor to the weak. #Quote by Joseph B. Wirthlin
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Karl G. Maeser
#36. Place me behind prison walls - walls of stone ever so high, ever so thick, reaching ever so far into the ground. There is a possibility that in some way or another I may be able to escape. But stand me on that floor and draw a chalk line around me and have me give my word of honor never to cross it. Can I get out of that circle? No. Never. #Quote by Karl G. Maeser
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Angela Y. Davis
#37. Thus, critiques of the prison industrial complex undertaken by abolitionist activists and scholars are very much linked to critiques of the global persistence of racism. Antiracist and other social justice movements are incomplete with attention to the politics of imprisonment. #Quote by Angela Y. Davis
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Ransom Riggs
#38. There were wooden toys moldering in a box; crayons on a windowsill, their colors dulled by the light of ten thousand afternoons; a dollhouse with dolls inside, lifers in an ornate prison. In a modest library, the creep of moisture had bowed the shelves into crooked smiles. #Quote by Ransom Riggs
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Charles Dickens
#39. In an American state prison or house of correction, I found it difficult at first to persuade myself that I was really in a jail: a place of ignominious punishment and endurance. And to this hour I very much question whether the humane boast that it is not like one, has its root in the true wisdom or philosophy of the matter. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Sharon Gannon
#40. Some people may argue that if the animals are treated humanely prior to being slaughtered, this justifies their confinement and slaughter. Is it ethical to rob beings of their freedom but give them a comfortable prison and provide them with food until they become fat enough to be slaughtered? Any way you look at it, farms are places where animals are kept in preparation to be slaughtered and ultimately eaten as food. #Quote by Sharon Gannon
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Mark M. Bello
#41. I now believe successful criminal and civil outcomes in these cases, prison for Gerry, and a large damages award for the boys, would clarify these issues and assuage their guilt feelings. A guilty verdict in the criminal case and a large civil verdict or settlement would be double vindication for the boys. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Boyd K. Packer
#42. You always hold the key of repentance to unlock the prison door. If they throw the word diversity at you, grab hold of it and say, "I am already diverse, and I intend to stay diverse." If the word is tolerance, grab that one, too, saying, "I expect you to be tolerant of my lifestyle-obedience, integrity, abstinence, repentance." If the word is choice, tell them you choose good, old-fashioned morality. #Quote by Boyd K. Packer
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Assata Shakur
#43. I looked it up and sure enough, she was right. The Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution says: Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. Well, that explained a lot of things. That explained why jails and prisons all over the country are filled to the brim with Black and Third World people, why so many Black people can't find a job on the streets and are forced to survive the best way they know how. Once you're in prison, there are plenty of jobs, and, if you don't want to work, they beat you up and throw you in the hole. If every state had to pay workers to do the jobs prisoners are forced to do, the salaries would amount to billions. License plates alone would amount to millions. #Quote by Assata Shakur
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Gerald Clarke
#44. He was opposed to capital punishment - "institutionalized sadism," he termed it - and in favor of prison reforms that would emphasize rehabilitation. His opinions were generally conservative, however, and he did not subscribe to the fashionable view of the sixties that criminals were victims of society. #Quote by Gerald Clarke
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Horace Mann
#45. Jails and prisons are the complement of schools; so many less as you have of the latter, so many more must you have of the former. #Quote by Horace Mann
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Piper Kerman
#46. No one who worked in "Corrections" appeared to give any thought to the purpose of our being there, any more than a warehouse clerk would consider the meaning of a can of tomatoes, or try to help those tomatoes understand what the hell they were doing on the shelf. #Quote by Piper Kerman
Prison Of Conforming Thoughts quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#47. Custom is a prison, locked and barred by those who long ago were dust, the keys of which are in the keeping of the dead. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
