conformity

A Quote by Edward R. Murrow on books, change, censorship, joe mccarthy, and conformity

If none of us ever read a book that was
'dangerous,' nor had a friend who was 'different,' or never joined an
organization that advocated 'change,' we would all be just the kind of
people Joe McCarthy wants.

A Quote by Sidney Jourard on hynotism, conformity, label, and existence

We begin life with the world presenting itself to us as it is.  Someone - our parents, teachers, analysts - hypnotizes us to "see" the world and construe it in the "right" way.  These others label the world, attach names and give voices to the beings and events in it, so that thereafter, we cannot read the world in any other language or hear it saying other things to us.  The task is to break the hypnotic spell, so that we become undeaf, unblind and multilingual, thereby letting the world speak to us in new voices and write all its possible meanings in the new book of our existence.  Be careful in your choice of hypnotists.

A Quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes on what others are doing, actions, what we think, and conformity

Most of the things we do, we do for no better reason than that our fathers have done them or that our neighbors do them, and the same is true of a larger part than we suspect of what we think.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself.  Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
