In spite of my great admiration for individual splendid talents I do not accept the star system. Collective creative effort is the root of our kind of art. That requires ensemble acting and whoever mars that ensemble is committing a crime not only against his comrades but also against the very art of which he is the servant.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The child learns more of the virtues needed in modern life-of fairness, of justice, of comradeship, of collective interest and action-in a common school than can be taught in the most perfect family circle.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Liberty is to the collective body, what health is to every individual body. Without health no pleasure can be tasted by man; without liberty, no happiness can be enjoyed by society.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One of the weaknesses in the cooperative is that it has never been sufficiently leavened by the imagination. This is a quick-silver faculty, and likely to be a cause of worry to any collective settlement.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
At night, when the curtains are drawn and the fire flickers, my books attain a collective dignity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nature is a collective idea, and, though its essence exist in each individual of the species, can never in its perfection inhabit a single object.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Progress is the life-style of man. The general life of the human race is called Progress, and so is its collective march. Progress advances, it makes the great human and earthly journey towards what is heavenly and divine; it has its pauses, when it rallies the stragglers, its stopping places when it meditates, contemplating some new and splendid promised land that has suddenly appeared on its horizon. It has its nights of slumber; and it is one of the poignant anxieties of the thinker to see the human spirit lost in shadow, and to grope in the darkness without being able to awake sleeping progress.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The further jazz moves away from the stark blue continuum and the collective realities of Afro-American and American life, the more it moves into academic concert-hall lifelessness, which can be replicated by any middle class showing off its music lessons.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The popularity of disaster movies expresses a collective perception of a world threatened by irresistible and unforeseen forces which nevertheless are thwarted at the last moment. Their thinly veiled symbolic meaning might be translated thus: We are innocent of wrongdoing. We are attacked by unforeseeable forces come to harm us. We are, thus, innocent even of negligence. Though those forces are insuperable, chance will come to our aid and we shall emerge victorious.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As the unity of the modern world becomes increasingly a technological rather than a social affair, the techniques of the arts provide the most valuable means of insight into the real direction of our own collective purposes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we can, when we have established individual discipline, arrange the children, sending each one to his own place, in order, trying to make them understand the idea that thus placed they look well, and that it is a good thing to be thus placed in order, that it is a good and pleasing arrangement in the room, this ordered and tranquil adjustment of theirs -- then their remaining in their places, quiet and silent, is the result of a species of lesson, not an imposition. To make them understand the idea, without calling their attention too forcibly to the practice, to have them assimilate a principle of collective order -- that is the important thing.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Upon books the collective education of the race depends; they are the sole instruments of registering, perpetuating and transmitting thought.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For the duration of its collective life, or the time during which its identity may be assumed, each class resembles a hotel or an omnibus, always full, but always of different people.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Reality is nothing but a collective hunch.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The person who figures out how to harness the collective genius of his or her organization is going to blow the competition away.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If we hit the collective nerve of the audience on that night, that they would be standing up and rushing towards the stage to hug us.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
In some ways that's more gratifying, it requires more of your own energy and your own input, and everyone's kind of collective energy, and that' a way that's more gratifying.More [05/06/2006 12:05:00]

[on the reason for the success of 'Dracula(1931)']
Bela Lugosi: They were mythic. They had a poetry to them.
Edward D. Wood, Jr.: Yes.
Bela Lugosi: And you know what else? The women... the women preferred the traditional monsters.
Edward D. Wood, Jr.: The women? Huh?
Bela Lugosi: The pure horror, it both repels, and attracts them, because in their collective unconsiousness, they have the agony of childbirth. The blood. The blood is horror.
Edward D. Wood, Jr.: You know, I never thought of that.
Bela Lugosi: Take my word for it. If you want to make out with a young lady, take her to see "Dracula".More [06/13/2007 12:06:00]
Rob: It made sense to pool our collective loathing for the opposite sex, and while we were at it, you get to share a bed with somebody at the same time. We were frightened of being left alone for the rest of our lives. Only people of a certain disposition are frightened of being alone for the rest of their lives at the age of 26, and we were of that disposition.More [03/12/2008 12:03:00]
[showing Sophie the Gestapo's secret file room] These are the most complete archives ever conceived. This is the secret Germany. Nothing is lacking. You can even find your history and Frederick's. Can you believe it? You see it's not very difficult to enter into the lives of people. Every German citizen today is potentially one of our informers. The collective thinking of our people is now complete. Don't you think that is the true miracle of the Third Reich?... If you wish, we could read Konstantine's future together - if he has one.

El Albañil:
I don't like doing things unless I know what they're for. I don't trust, on principle.

What are you afraid of? That I'm an agent?

El Albañil:
Even if you were, the police know all about me. I've been in and out of jail for years. No, I'm only afraid of getting into something wrong.

It can't be wrong if it's against the Franco regime.

El Albañil:
That's what you say. This thing you're doing, kidnapping industrialists, planting bombs, some Civil Guard killed. These are pointless actions.

What does the good fight mean to you then?

El Albañil:
The struggle's different for us. It's a day to day business. It's organization, getting more and more support. It's trying to change people's minds, little by little, day by day. It's easy to have contempt for shitty work like that.

I think you have comtempt for us.

El Albañil:
No. Thing is, I believe in collective action, by and for the maximum number of people possible.

Our action is for everyone. You can't imagine how useful it will be.

El Albañil:
Well, what can I say? Good luck.

Known who the place is for? Carrero Blanco.

El Albañil:
Holy shit! And you're telling this to someone you don't know?

If my comrades found out, they'd spit in my face, then kill me, and they'd be right.

Jack Black:
What's that smell?

Jesus Ranch Cult Leader:
Oh that, the collective leaving of the brethren.

Jack Black:
You mean your shits?

Jesus Ranch Cult Leader:
Our "cult" has a simple philosophy, each time you produce a stool, you part with a portion of your soul. We save our droppings so that when we die, we may be buried with them and be complete before entering the next world.

Annabel Chong:
To Singapore, pornography is filth. That's okay. But it's become a national ideology that, just, you know, a value judgment, you know, to do pornography is to be against the collective agreement of what it means to be a Singaporean. Fuck 'em. They can lick my ass.

Jack Irons:
We paced ourselves and we didn't rush through it and we tried to be as creative as our collective minds would let us be over some course of time instead of just trying to rush through a record

David Brent:
You're all looking at me, you're going, "Well yeah, you're a success, you've achieved you're goals, you're reaping the rewards, sure. But, OI, Brent. Is all you care about chasing the Yankee dollar?" Let me show you something I always keep with me. Just a little book, Collective Meditations, and it's a collection of philosophers, writers, thinkers, native American wisdom, which I, and it's really showing you that, er, the spiritual side needs as much care and attention as the physical side. It's about feeding the soul, yeah? Evolving spirituality. And a foreword by Duncan Goodhew, so... Can I read one-which I think- "If all men were to bring their miseries together in one place, most would be glad to take each, his own, home again, rather than take a portion out of the common stock." It's saying, for the first time, you know, the grass isn't always greener on the other side, don't look over your neighbour's fence and go "ooh he's got a better car than me, ooh, he's got a more attractive wife." We all wake up and we go "oh, I ache, I'm not 18 any more, you know, I'm thirty ni- you know, I'm in my thirties, I'm not-", but so what, at least I've got my health. And if you haven't got your health-if you've got one leg, at least I haven't got two legs missing. And if you have lost both legs and both arms, just go "at least I'm not dead. I'd rather be dead in that situation, to be honest. I'm not saying people like that should be... you know, put down. I'm saying that, in my life, I'd rather not live without arms and legs because... I'm just getting into yoga, for one thing. So...

Sheng-Ji Yang:
If our society seems more nihilistic than that of previous eras, perhaps this is simply a sign of our maturity as a sentient species. As our collective consciousness expands beyond a crucial point, we are at last ready to accept life's fundamental truth: that life's only purpose is life itself.

[first lines]

Brody Sutton:
I still remember. Saturday morning cartoons, must-see-tv, news, fair and balanced. I also remember the first two Gulf wars, the second great depression, school shootings, and the music. It's the music I miss the most. There was freedom then. Freedom to do terrible things, but freedom all the same.

Beautiful Woman:
You will find that such primitive emotions and ideas as jealously, rage, sexual possessiveness, and monogamy have been eliminated. Your new implant has made you part of a collective whole known as the Community. In the Community you are truly free to move among partners, male or female, as you choose. Your pleasure will be your guide.

Brody Sutton:
I had a girlfriend once. We were going to get married. I remember being excited about that. She was killed in the first "purge" of the Leader. Rumor has it that 89 people died in one day. One day. And that was just in North America. The death toll in third world countries was reported to be much higher. Not that you could confirm such rumors.

Beautiful Woman:
The most significant health aspect of the implant regards aging. Each one of you can reasonably expect to live far longer than 200 years of productive life for the Community. As such is the case, the implant also functions as birth control. Only by the will of the Leader may you procreate. Praise to the Leader for the freedom he has given.

Brody Sutton:
Praise to the Leader? 10 years ago I watched my mother die of cancer. She grabbed my hand in her last moments, wanting me to stare out the window. She was seeing something that I couldn't see. But as she passed her face was truly peaceful, even in the midst of all her pain.

Beautiful Woman:
Those whose old jobs are no longer necessary will receive new assignment for the good of the Community. Information on how to do these new jobs will be downloaded into you through your implant.

Brody Sutton:
I remember my job, before *he* came on the scene, before all of this. I was a designer, engineer, and for Chevrolet. I was part of the team that designed the engine for the last Corvette ever manufactured. That was only a few years ago. Before the whole world went insane.
