Favorite Conformism Quotes

1. "Our Press and our schools cultivate Chauvinism, militarism, dogmatism, conformism and ignorance. The arbitrary power of the Government is unlimited, and unexampled in history; freedom of the Press, of opinion and of movement are as thoroughly exterminated as though the proclamation of the Rights of Man had never been. We have built up the most gigantic police apparatus, with informers made a national institution, and the most refined scientific system of political and mental torture. We whip the groaning masses of the country towards a theoretical future happiness, which only we can."
Author: Arthur Koestler
2. "Úrsula se perguntava se não era preferível se deitar logo de uma vez na sepultura e lhe jogarem a terra por cima, e perguntava a Deus, sem medo, se realmente acreditava que as pessoas eram feitas de ferro para suportar tantas penas e mortificações. E perguntando e perguntando ia atiçando sua própria perturbação e sentia desejos irreprimíveis de se soltar e não ter papas na língua como um forasteiro e de se permitir afinal um instante de rebeldia, o instante tantas vezes desejado e tantas vezes adiado, para cortar a resignação pela raiz e cagar de uma vez para tudo e tirar do coração os infinitos montes de palavrões que tivera que engolir durante um século inteiro de conformismo.– Porra! – gritou.Amaranta, que começava a colocar a roupa no baú, pensou que ela tinha sido picada por um escorpião.– Onde está? – perguntou alarmada.– O quê?– O animal! – esclareceu Amaranta.Úrsula pôs o dedo no coração.– Aqui – disse"

3. "Avrà magari ragione il professor Weinberger a sperare che <> finisca per essere più intelligente di noi, ma la storia ideologica del XX secolo è purtroppo piena di esempi in cui individui e teorie <> hanno poi innescato conformismi, deprimenti in democrazia, tragici nei sistemi totalitari."
Author: Gianni Riotta
4. "Un esprit torturé, dont les ressorts sont brises, qui n'aspire plus qu'à échapper aux difficultés de la vie, qui a rejeté le monde extérieur parce que des disciplines et des conformismes l'ont abêti — un tel esprit, chercherait-il longtemps, ne trouverait jamais que l'image de sa propre déformation."
Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
5. "Mesmo no que se faz por prazer o conformismo é a primeira coisa em que se pensa; as pessoas desejam em grupo; exercem a escolha apenas entre coisas comummente feitas; fogem da peculiaridade de gosto e da excentricidade de conduta como de crimes; até que, à força de não seguirem a própria natureza, não têm mais natureza a seguir; as suas capacidades humanas mirram e morrem; tornam-se incapazes de desejos fortes e de prazeres naturais; e não apresentam, em regra, opiniões e sentimentos brotados do íntimo, propriamente seus. É essa, entretanto, a condição desejável da natureza humana?"
Author: John Stuart Mill
6. "Our time prides itself on having finally achieved the freedom from censorship for which libertarians in all ages have struggled...The credit for these great achievements is claimed by the new spirit of rationalism, a rationalism that, it is argued, has finally been able to tear from man's eyes the shrouds imposed by mystical thought, religion, and such powerful illusions as freedom and dignity. Science has given us this great victory over ignorance. But, on closer examination, this victory too can be seen as an Orwellian triumph of an even higher ignorance: what we have gained is a new conformism, which permits us to say anything that can be said in the functional languages of instrumental reason, but forbids us to allude to...the living truth...so we may discuss the very manufacture of life and its 'objective' manipulations, but we may not mention God, grace, or morality."
Author: Joseph Weizenbaum
7. "Quero que o fato de ter uma vida prática e sensata não me roube o direito ao desatino. Que eu nunca aceite a ideia de que a maturidade exige um certo conformismo."
Author: Martha Medeiros
8. "Conformism and non-conformism are symmetrical expressions of a lack of originality."
Author: Nicolás Gómez Dávila
9. "For him morality was neither conformism nor philosophic wisdom, but living the infinite fullness of possibilities. He believed in morality's capacity for intensification, in stages of moral experience, and not merely, as most people do, in stages of moral understanding, as if it were something cut-and-dried for which people were just not pure enough. He believed in morality without believing in any specific moral system. Morality is generally understood to be a sort of police regulations for keeping life in order, and since life does not obey even these, they come to look as if they were really impossible to live up to and accordingly, in this sorry way, not really an ideal either. But morality must not be reduced to this level. Morality is imagination. This was what he wanted to make Agathe see. And his second point was: Imagination is not arbitrary. Once imagination is left to caprice, there is a price to pay."
Author: Robert Musil
10. "Tout ça avait pour but d'illustrer le péril du conformisme, et la difficulté de préserver vos convictions, quoi qu'en pense les autres. [...] Nous avons tous besoin d'être accepté, mais soyez persuadé que vos convictions sont uniques, les vôtres, même si on les trouve anormales ou impopulaires, même si le troupeau dit « C'est maaaaaaaaal ». Robert Frost a dit : « Deux routes s'offraient à moi, et là j'ai suivi celle où on n'allait pas, et j'ai compris toute la différence. »"
Author: Robin Williams

You grab the core essence of a true problem and swaddle it in the mad glittery ribbons of fantasy — and therein you find glorious new permutations of conflict. Reality expressed in mind-boggling ways. Reach for fantasy. Find the reality."
