Favorite Memes Quotes

1. "Hauntings are memes, especially pernicious thought contagions, social contagions that need no viral or bacterial host and are transmitted in a thousand different ways. A book, a poem, a song, a bedtime story, a grandmother's suicide, the choreography of a dance, a few frames of film, a diagnosis of schizophrenia, a deadly tumble from a horse, a faded photograph, or a story you tell your daughter."
Author: Caitlín R. Kiernan
2. "Robots are like Mars: they needgirls. Boys won't do;the memesoup is all wrong. They stompwhen they should kissand they're none too keenon having things shoved inside them...It's not a robotuntil you put a girl inside. Sometimes I feel like that. A junkyard the Company forgot to put a girl in."
Author: Catherynne M. Valente
3. "I can choose the subroutine and perform sadness. How is that different from what you are doing, except that you use the word feelings and I use the word feelings, out of deference for your cultural memes which say: there is all the difference in the world. I erase the word even as I say it, obliterate it at the same time that I initiate it, because I must use some word yet this one offends you. I delete it, yet it remains."
Author: Catherynne M. Valente
4. "But if it is true that human minds are themselves to a very great degree the creations of memes, then we cannot sustain the polarity of vision we considered earlier; it cannot be "memes versus us," because earlier infestations of memes have already played a major role in determining who or what we are. The "independent" mind struggling to protect itself from alien and dangerous memes is a myth. There is a persisting tension between the biological imperative of our genes on the one hand and the cultural imperatives of our memes on the other, but we would be foolish to "side with" our genes; that would be to commit the most egregious error of pop sociobiology. Besides, as we have already noted, what makes us special is that we, alone among species, can rise above the imperatives of our genes— thanks to the lifting cranes of our memes."
Author: Daniel Dennett
5. "Ne kadar uzaklardayiz!" diye içini çekti."Neden?""Kendimizden," dedi psikopos. "Insanin öksüz oldugunu ögrenmek için bazen bir yila ihtiyaci olmasi sence haksizlik degil mi?" Bir yanit alamayinca da, hasretini açiga vurdu: "Bu gece Ispanya'da uyuyor olmalarinin düsüncesi bile içimi korkuyla dolduruyor.""Dünyanin dönmesine karisamayiz," dedi Delaura."Ama bize aci vermemesi için bunu bilmezden gelebilirdik," dedi psikopos. "Galile'ye asil gereken, inanç degil yürekti."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
6. "Memes can replicate with impressive virulence while leaving swaths of collateral damage—patent medicines and psychic surgery, astrology and satanism, racist myths, superstitions, and (a special case) computer viruses. In a way, these are the most interesting—the memes that thrive to their hosts' detriment, such as the idea that suicide bombers will find their reward in heaven."
Author: James Gleick
7. "Hissettiklerimi hissetmeme asla izin verilmemesinden korkuyorum."
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
8. "Successful cult memes induce intense social interaction behaviour between cult members. This trips the attention detectors."
Author: Keith Henson
9. "Naitre des memes parents, c'est comme passer la nuit dans une meme chambre"
Author: Mariama Bâ
10. "Currently spirituality is at an ebb in the more advanced technological societies. This in part because memes that validate spiritual order tend to lose their credibility with time, and need to be recast in new forms again and again. At present we are living in an era when many of the basic tenents of Christianity, which has supported Western spiritual values for almost two thousand yearsm have come into conflict with the conclusions of science and philosophy. While religions have lost much of their power, science and technology have not been able to generate convincing value systems to replace them."
Author: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
11. "Rumors had their own classic epidemiology. Each started with a single germinating event. Information spread from that point, mutating and interbreeding— a conical mass of threads, expanding into the future from the apex of their common birthplace. Eventually, of course, they'd wither and die; the cone would simply dissipate at its wide end, its permutations senescent and exhausted.There were exceptions, of course. Every now and then a single thread persisted, grew thick and gnarled and unkillable: conspiracy theories and urban legends, the hooks embedded in popular songs, the comforting Easter-bunny lies of religious doctrine. These were the memes: viral concepts, infections of conscious thought. Some flared and died like mayflies. Others lasted a thousand years or more, tricked billions into the endless propagation of parasitic half-truths."
Author: Peter Watts
12. "Examples of memes are tunes, ideas, catch-phrases, clothes fashions, ways of making pots or of building arches. Just as genes propagate themselves in the gene pool by leaping from body to body via sperms or eggs, so memes propagate themselves in the meme pool by leaping from brain to brain via a process which, in the broad sense, can be called imitation."
Author: Richard Dawkins
13. "Yeni resim gokyuzu kadar manasiz ve bos, fakat gokyuzu kadar derin ve zengindir. Maviligi seven bir adamin yeni resmi sevmemesine imkan yoktur. Fakat maviligi sevebilmek meseledir."
Author: Sabahattin Eyüboğlu
14. "Kita berdua saja duduk,Aku memesan ilalang panjang dan bunga rumput,Kau entah memesan apa,Aku memesan batu ditengah sungai terjal yang deras,Kau entah memesan apa, Tapi kita berdua saja duduk,"
Author: Sapardi Djoko Damono
15. "DI RESTORANKita berdua saja, duduk. Aku memesan ilalang panjang dan bunga rumput --kau entah memesan apa. Aku memesanbatu ditengah sungai terjal yang deras --kau entah memesan apa. Tapi kita berduasaja, duduk. Aku memesan rasa sakityang tak putus dan nyaring lengkingnya,memesan rasa lapar yang asing itu.(1989)"
Author: Sapardi Djoko Damono
16. "The idea that memes exist is a meme meme."
Author: Steven M. Wise
17. "Certainly almost everything we do and think is colored in some way by memes, but it is important to realize that not everything we experience is a meme. If I walk down the street and see a tree, the basic perception that's going on is not memetic."
Author: Susan Blackmore
18. "Humans are often credited with having real foresight, in distinction to the rest of biology which does not. For example, Dawkins compares the 'blind watchmaker' of natural selection with the real human one. 'A true watchmaker has foresight: he designs his cogs and springs, and plans their interconnections, with a future purpose in his mind's eye. Natural selection . . . has no purpose in mind'.I think this distinction is wrong. There is no denying that the human watchmaker is different from the natural one. We humans, by virtue of having memes, can think about cogs, and wheels, and keeping time, in a way that animals cannot. Memes are the mind tools with which we do it. But what memetics shows us is that the processes underlying the two kinds of design are essentially the same. They are both evolutionary processes that give rise to design through selection, and in the process they produce what looks like foresight."
Author: Susan J. Blackmore
19. "If we take memetics seriously then the 'me' that could do the choosing is itself a memetic construct: a fluid and ever-changing group of memes installed in a complicated meme machine."
Author: Susan J. Blackmore
