The stigma of conformity

by Doktor Spinn on 2021-11-10


“Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the dangers of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of “crackpot” than the stigma of conformity. And on issues that seem important to you, stand up and be counted at any cost.”

- Thomas J. Watson

“Everything that’s already in the world when you’re born is just normal. Anything that gets invented between then and before you turn thirty is incredibly exciting and creative and with any luck you can make a career out of it. Anything that gets invented after you’re thirty is against the natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilisation as we know it until it’s been around for about ten years when it gradually turns out to be alright really.”

Skönt att jag inte är trettio än på några månader. So yes, there is still time to be naive.

Papper är för mesar

Coolt citat från The West Wing, säsong 3, avsnitt “Manchester I”:

Charlie: “Aren’t you supposed to be writing?”
Toby: “I am writing.”
Charlie: “I don’t see paper.”
Toby:We can sit back and admit with great sensitivity that life isn’t fair… and the less-advantaged are destined to their lot in life… and the problems of those on the other side of the world should stay there… Paper’s for wimps.”

På alla fyra

Kontaktmannen får ta äran för dagens citat om det hårda livet på byråsidan:

“… man kan inte gå med på vad som helst även om man tillbringar sina arbetsdagar på alla fyra.”

“Welcome to SeaWorld, kid!”

90-talsklassikern Point Break måste vara en av tidernas coolaste filmer. Inte för att den är ett cineastiskt mästerverk, utan för att den andas av adrenalin, frihet och broderskap. Om du inte har möjlighet att återse filmen, så återupplev den åtminstone genom filmens odödliga citat.

UTAH: Don’t you gamble?
BODHI: Only make bets I can’t afford to lose. Only way to be 100% committed.

15 year old kid: Hey, man, guys your age learning to surf, it’s cool, there’s nothing wrong with it.
UTAH: I’m twenty-five.
15 year old kid: See that’s what I’m saying, it’s never too late.

UTAH: I’ve gotta be fucking crazy.
BODHI: But are you crazy enough?

BODHI: Not tragic to die doing what you love. You want the ultimate thrill, you gotta be willing to pay the ultimate price.

UTAH: Okay, so this is where you tell me all about how locals rule and yuppie insects like me shouldn’t be surfing your break and all that, right?
TONE: Waste of time.
WARCHILD: We’re just going to fuck you up.

BODHI: It’s basic dog psychology, brah. If you scare them, get them pissing down their leg, they submit… you control them. If you project weakness, you draw aggression… that’s how people get hurt. Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true. You project strength to avoid conflict.

BODHI: Other guys snort for it, jab a vein for it - all YOU gotta do is jump.

Ett citat tillägnat Petra i kommentarsfältet:

UTAH: Caught my first tube this morning. Sir!
