Conscious

Famous quotes containing the word conscious:

    Imagination is always the fabric of social life and the dynamic of history. The influence of real needs and compulsions, of real interests and materials, is indirect because the crowd is never conscious of it.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    We cannot remain long in a conscious state or in consciousness, we must take refuge again in the unconscious since there are our roots.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    Consciousness is cerebral celebrity—nothing more and nothing less. Those contents are conscious that persevere, that monopolize resources long enough to achieve certain typical and “symptomatic” effects—on memory, on the control of behavior and so forth.
    Daniel Clement Dennett (b. 1942)
