Whoever thought the immediate alternates with the immediate action is not an abstract painter  (Abstract Thought Quotes) As information technology restructures the work situation, it abstracts thought from action  (Abstract Thought Quotes) Most people would have found it grotesque, but when you’re in love nothing is so abstract or horrible that it can’t be thought of as cute  (Abstract Thought Quotes) We’re not good at noticing slow, steady changes in our environments, our senses are not very acute compared to those of many animals, and we’re pretty awful at abstract thought, much less acting on it  (Abstract Thought Quotes) As you see, I do not treat the creation of fiction, that to say the invention and development of fantasies, as a form of abstract thought. I don’t wish to deny the uses of the intellect, but sometimes one has the intuition that the intellect by itself will lead one nowhere  (Abstract Thought Quotes) I’ve always thought abstractly - through theme and variations rather than narrative  (Abstract Thought Quotes) My thoughts about God are vague and abstract. My connection with the energy of the universe is shaky  (Abstract Thought Quotes) I guess law was always interesting to me because you deal with constants. I like to deal with constants, abstracts, constants and reason and ration, rational approaches to things. I don’t know, I never really thought why I wanted to study law. But if you ask me whether I would do it again, absolutely  (Abstract Thought Quotes) I had never thought that I would be involved in narrative structures. As a young guy, I was more interested in abstract modeling. But as I got older, I began to see that there was no reason to limit myself to any intellectual or conceptual postulate, when in fact I’m a professional student of music  (Abstract Thought Quotes) The narrative oftentimes is that everything that comes out of the hood is ‘real,’ and so I thought, ‘I’ll base it on the absurd, the not real. I’ll twist the idea of real on its head and see if I can get away with it. I’ll make paintings that come not from a place but through an abstract gaze.’  (Abstract Thought Quotes) The mind is inherently embodied. Thought is mostly unconscious. Abstract concepts are largely metaphorical  (Abstract Thought Quotes) Reality is infinitely diverse, compared with even the subtlest conclusions of abstract thought, and does not allow of clear-cut and sweeping distinctions. Reality resists classification  (Abstract Thought Quotes) You’ve got a lot of time for abstract thought when you’ve got your hand stuck up a dead badger  (Abstract Thought Quotes) Lenin thought abstract art was a conspiracy by the bourgeois to demoralize the proletariat. Yeah, socialist realism!  (Abstract Thought Quotes) In civilized places idleness, once the prerequisite for abstract thought, poetry, religion, philosophy, and falling in love, has become a character flaw. In America we’ve managed to stamp it out almost completely, and few people under forty can remember a single moment of it, even in earliest childhood. The phrase ‘spare time’ has vanished from the land  (Abstract Thought Quotes) I love the idea of leaving some of the original abstract thought in, because the problem is that when you pick up a pen you become a snob, your own worse critic. You edit yourself in a way that is non-creative  (Abstract Thought Quotes) If language naturally evolves to serve the needs of tiny rodents with tiny rodent brains, then what’s unique about language isn’t the brilliant humans who invented it to communicate high-level abstract thoughts. What’s unique about language is that the creatures who develop it are highly vulnerable to being eaten  (Abstract Thought Quotes) Americans have no capacity for abstract thought, and make bad coffee  (Abstract Thought Quotes) To those who have exhausted politics, nothing remains but abstract thought  (Abstract Thought Quotes) Screenwriting is always about what people say or do, whereas good writing is about a thought process or an abstract image or an internal monologue, none of which works on screen  (Abstract Thought Quotes) The abstract way we think is really grounded in the concrete, bodily world much more than we thought  (Abstract Thought Quotes) You’ve got a lot of time for abstract thought when you’ve got your hand stuck up a dead badger  (Abstract Thought Quotes) You need language for thought, and you need language to anticipate death. There is no abstract thought without language and no anticipation. I think the anticipation of death without language would be impossible  (Abstract Thought Quotes) Well, I wanted to be a philosopher, which is the idlest occupation in the world. I wanted to be involved in abstract thought, but because of various problems with the authorities I wasn’t able to pull that one off. A lifetime of idleness in academia would have really suited me. So I was thrown out, as it were. Other than that, there seemed no possible idle occupations, so writing... although writing isn’t exactly idleness. There’s an enormous tension between indolence and languor  (Abstract Thought Quotes) You have something that exists in your head, and getting that abstract thought from your head into something that actually exists is a difficult process  (Abstract Thought Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
