„What would the Senate do with me, an inexperienced legislator who lacks the faculty of self-deception, essential requisite for anyone wanting to guide others.“

—  Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, libro El gatopardo

Che cosa se ne farebbe il Senato di me, di un legislatore inesperto cui manca la facoltà d'ingannare sé stesso, questo requisito essenziale per chi voglia guidare gli altri?

„You let the brush take over and in a way follow its own head, and in the brush doing what it's doing, it will stumble on what one couldn't by oneself... It's essential to fracture influences in the same way that free association in psychoanalysis helps to fracture one's social self-deceptions.“

—  Robert Motherwell American artist 1915 - 1991

Quote, as cited by Grace Glueck, in 'Robert Motherwell, Master of Abstract, Dies', by Grace Glueck, 'New York Times, 18 July 1991 https://www.nytimes.com/1991/07/18/obituaries/robert-motherwell-master-of-abstract-dies.html
Motherwell's description of the surrealist method of psychic automatism, or 'artful scribbling', as he called it and applied it always. It involved a kind of 'free association' in which the pen or brush was allowed to wander on the surface, free from and not directed by the conscious mind

„We are sorely deficient in talking with each other and listening to each other. We lack mobility, criticism and self-criticism. We incline to doctrinism. What makes it worse is that so many people do not really want to think. They want only slogans and obedience.“

—  Karl Jaspers German psychiatrist and philosopher 1883 - 1969

The Question of German Guilt (1947)
Contexto: We are sorely deficient in talking with each other and listening to each other. We lack mobility, criticism and self-criticism. We incline to doctrinism. What makes it worse is that so many people do not really want to think. They want only slogans and obedience. They ask no questions and they give no answers, except by repeating drilled-in phrases. They can only assert and obey, neither probe nor apprehend. Thus they cannot be convinced, either. How shall we talk with people who will not go where others probe and think, where men seek independence in insight and conviction?
