If you don't concentrate on what you are doing then the thing that you are doing is not what you are thinking. ~ Alfred Lord Tennyson
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Marx ... Lenin ... Mao Tse-Tung ... These men were animated by the love of brother and this we must believe though their ends meant the seizure of power, and the building of mighty armies, the compulsion of concentration camps, the forced labor and torture and killing of tens of thousands, even millions. ~ Dorothy Day
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Dorothy Day
You are in a concentration camp. In Auschwitz ... "
A pause. He was observing the effect his words had produced. His face remains in my memory to this day. A tall man, in his thirties, crime written all over his forehead and his gaze. He looked at us as one would a pack of leprous dogs clinging to life.
"Remember," he went on. "Remember it always, let it be graven in your memories. You are in Auschwitz. And Auschwitz is not a convalescent home. It is a concentration camp. Here, you must work. If you don't you will go straight to the chimney. Work or crematorium
the choice is yours. ~ Elie Wiesel
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Elie Wiesel
We are at once put to work sorting. My friend Leybl stands next to me. We inspect every garment as carefully as possible. On the other side of me stands a worker who has already been here for several days. I want to find out from him what happened here, since, despite the fact that I can see the clothes left behind by the victims, I still cannot grasp what is going on. ~ Chil Rajchman
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Chil Rajchman
Right there is the usefulness of migraine, there in that imposed yoga, the concentration on the pain. For when the pain recedes, ten or twelve hours later, everything goes with it, all the hidden resentments, all the vain anxieties. The migraine has acted as a circuit breaker, and the fuses have emerged intact. There is a pleasant convalescent euphoria. ~ Joan Didion
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Joan Didion
They were always doing something. Quietly, without interruption, and with great concentration, they carried on with the hundred-and-one small things that made up their world. ~ Tove Jansson
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Tove Jansson
No, of course I don't mind paying the electric bill. Do Parnell and Leah have a key?" "No, Jane was firm about that. Parnell came to me and offered to go through and get Jane's clothes and things packed away, but of course I told him no." "Oh?" "They're yours," he said simply. "Everything" - and he gave that some emphasis, or was it only my imagination - "everything in this house is yours. Parnell and Leah know about their five thousand, and Jane herself handed him the keys to her car two days before she died and let him take it from this carport, but, other than that, whatever is in this house" - and suddenly I was alert and very nearly scared - "is yours to deal with however you see fit." My eyes narrowed with concentration. What was he saying that he wasn't really saying? ~ Charlaine Harris
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Charlaine Harris
Listen to me, kid. Don't forget that you are in a concentration camp. In this place, it is every many for himself, and you cannot think of others. Not even you father. In this place, there is no such thing as father, brother, friend. Each of us lives and dies alone. Let me give you good advice: stop giving your ration of bread and soup to your old father. You cannot help him anymore. And you are hurting yourself. In fact, you should be getting his rations ... ~ Elie Wiesel
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Elie Wiesel
Nash's genius was of that mysterious variety more often associated with music and art than with the oldest of all sciences. It wasn't merely that his mind worked faster, that his memory was more retentive, or that his power of concentration was greater. The flashes of intuition were non-rational. Like other great mathematical intuitionists - Georg Friedrich Bernhard Riemann, Jules Henri Poincaré, Srinivasa Ramanujan - Nash saw the vision first, constructing the laborious proofs long afterward. ~ Sylvia Nasar
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Sylvia Nasar
Meditation will bring back the powers and awareness from the past; more importantly, it will expand your consciousness today. ~ Frederick Lenz
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Frederick Lenz
the sample volume the protein concentration and viscosity of the sample the degree of purity of the protein product the presence of nucleic acids, pyrogens, and proteolytic enzymes in the sample the ease with which different types of adsorbents can be washed free from adsorbed contaminants and denatured protein. ~ Jan-Christer Janson
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Jan-Christer Janson
This general lack of sleep really got to me. And little can prepare people for how they will react when deprived of it--over multiple days. Everything suffers: concentration, motivation, and performance. All key elements for what we were doing. But it is designed that way. Break you down and find out what you are really made of. Underneath the fluff.
I remember during one particular lecture (on the excruciatingly boring topic of the different penetration abilities of different bullets or rounds), looking over to my left and noticing Trucker jabbing his arm with a safety pin every few minutes in an attempt to keep himself awake.
The sight cheered me up no end. ~ Bear Grylls
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Bear Grylls
For unknown reasons, there is a tremendous concentration of psychoactive plants on the South American continent. The South American continent has more known hallucinogens than the rest of the planet combined. ~ Terence McKenna
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Terence McKenna
I think my whole life has been shaped by my childhood incarceration in America's concentration camps. ~ George Takei
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by George Takei
If we present a man with a concept of man which is not true, we may well corrupt him. When we present man as an automaton of reflexes, as a mind-machine, as a bundle of instincts, as a pawn of drives and reactions, as a mere product of instinct, heredity and environment, we feed the nihilism to which modern man is, in any case, prone.
I became acquainted with the last stage of that corruption in my second concentration camp, Auschwitz. The gas chambers of Auschwitz were the ultimate consequence of the theory that man is nothing but the product of heredity and environment; or as the Nazi liked to say, 'of Blood and Soil.' I am absolutely convinced that the gas chambers of Auschwitz, Treblinka, and Maidanek were ultimately prepared not in some Ministry or other in Berlin, but rather at the desks and lecture halls of nihilistic scientists and philosophers. ~ Viktor E. Frankl
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
The danger in media concentration comes not from the concentration, but instead from the feudalism that this concentration, tied to the change in copyright, produces. ~ Lawrence Lessig
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Lawrence Lessig
The mind is the athlete; the body is simply the means it uses to run faster or longer, jump higher, shoot straighter, kick better, swim harder, hit further, or box better. Hoppie's dictum to me, "First with the head and then with the heart," was more than simply mixing brains with guts. It meant thinking well beyond the powers of normal concentration and then daring your courage to follow your thoughts. ~ Bryce Courtenay
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Bryce Courtenay
I believe that the clue to his mind is to be found in his unusual powers of continuous concentrated
introspection. A case can be made out, as it also can with Descartes, for regarding him as an accomplished
experimentalist. Nothing can be more charming than the tales of his mechanical contrivances when he was a
boy. There are his telescopes and his optical experiments, These were essential accomplishments, part of his
unequalled all-round technique, but not, I am sure, his peculiar gift, especially amongst his contemporaries.
His peculiar gift was the power of holding continuously in his mind a purely mental problem until he had
seen straight through it. I fancy his pre-eminence is due to his muscles of intuition being the strongest and
most enduring with which a man has ever been gifted. Anyone who has ever attempted pure scientific or
philosophical thought knows how one can hold a problem momentarily in one's mind and apply all one's
powers of concentration to piercing through it, and how it will dissolve and escape and you find that what
you are surveying is a blank. I believe that Newton could hold a problem in his mind for hours and days and
weeks until it surrendered to him its secret. Then being a supreme mathematical technician he could dress it
up, how you will, for purposes of exposition, but it was his intuition which was pre-eminently extraordinary
- 'so happy in his conjectures', said De Morgan, 'as ~ John Maynard Keynes
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by John Maynard Keynes
There are many things I can do, but I have to narrow it down to the one thing I must do. The secret of concentration is elimination. ~ Andy Stanley
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Andy Stanley
The conscious mind is intended as a focusing tool, not a storing place. ~ Matthew Perman
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Matthew Perman
Elegance isn't a superficial thing, it's the way mankind has found to honor life and work. That's why, when you feel uncomfortable in that position, you mustn't think that it's false or artificial: it's real and true precisely because it's difficult. That position means that both the paper and the brush feel proud of the effort you're making. The paper ceases to be a flat, colorless surface and takes on the depth of the things placed on it. Elegance is the correct posture if the writing is to be perfect. It's the same with life: when all superfluous things have been discarded, we discover simplicity and concentration. The simpler and more sober the posture, the more beautiful it will be, even though, at first, it may seem uncomfortable. ~ Paulo Coelho
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Paulo Coelho
I sought for (and sometimes achieved) an intense concentration, a complete absorption in the worlds of mineralogy and chemistry and physics, in science – focusing on them, holding myself together in the chaos...create my own world from the neutrality and beauty of nature, so that I would not be swept into the chaos, the madness, the seduction, ~ Oliver Sacks
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Oliver Sacks
MARIA. So. How is everyone? Can you hear me? I don't believe in microphones. Singing is first of all about projection. So is speech. People are forgetting how to listen. They want everything blasted at them. Listening takes concentration. If you can't hear me, it's your fault. You're not concentrating. ~ Terrence McNally
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Terrence McNally
The essence of the stage is concentration and penetration. Of the screen action, movement, sweep. ~ Elia Kazan
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Elia Kazan
As a professor in two fields, neurology and psychiatry, I am fully aware of the extent to which man is subject to biological, psychological and sociological conditions. But in addition to being a professor in two fields I am a survivor of four camps - concentration camps, that is - and as such I also bear witness to the unexpected extent to which man is capable of defying and braving even the worst conditions conceivable. ~ Viktor E. Frankl
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Viktor E. Frankl
She was dark-haired, fierce; she wore two drop earrings made of crystal; her face was a pure oval tickled with dimples; her skin was golden; and her laugh was like a fire in the night. But on her face you could also read the concentration of a soul whose life is entirely inward, and a mischievous gravity which acquires a silver patina with age. ~ Muriel Barbery
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Muriel Barbery
The degree of freedom from unwanted thoughts and the degree of concentration on a single thought are the measures to gauge spiritual progress. ~ Ramana Maharshi
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Ramana Maharshi
All perception is but a change in the concentration of hydrogen ions on the surface of the brain cells. ~ Stanislaw Lem
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Stanislaw Lem
Meditation isn't only the act of successfully keeping your attention on the breath, it's the whole period of time you spend with the intention to observe the breath. It is this intention and its application - not your success at achieving perfect concentration - that is responsible for the benefits of meditation. ~ David Cain
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by David Cain
It was clear that Chloe, even down to the last moment, was working something out. Her eyes were closed, her face arranged in a look of concentration as she sifted through her thoughts. Just as clear was the moment she figured it all out. Lifting her head, her eyes moved up the aisle to me, and it was as if time stopped and everything else fell away. I could feel myself smile, then see it reflected in the way her entire face seemed to light up, and I did the only thing I could think. I whispered the words, Come here. ~ Christina Lauren
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Christina Lauren
... ... but work in the field has nothing to do with dignity or with anything except patience, concentration, and eternal vigilance ~ C. William Beebe
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by C. William Beebe
And he listened to me. That was the thing he did, as if he was trying to fill himself up with all the sound he could hear. He listened to the wind and the falling ocean and my voice, always with rapt attention, a concentration that almost excluded physical bodies themselves and kept only the sounds. ~ Ray Bradbury
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Ray Bradbury
Almost from childhood, she knew that a concentration camp was nothing exceptional or startling but something very basic, a given into which we are born and from which we can escape only with the greatest of efforts. ~ Milan Kundera
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Milan Kundera
Most white Americans were willing to sacrifice civil liberties in the name of national security as long as they were the civil liberties of someone else. ~ Neil Nakadate
Brunnlitz Concentration quotes by Neil Nakadate
In South America euphemism appears to be the grisly preserve of violent power. 'Liberty' was the name of the biggest prison in Uruguay under the military dictatorship, while in Chile one of the concentration camps was called 'Dignity.' It was the self-styled 'Peace and Justice' paramilitary group in Chiapas [Mexico] that in 1997 shot 45 peasants in the back, nearly all of them women and children, as they prayed in a church. What have the souls of the south done over the past few decades to deserve quite so much liberty and dignity and peace and justice? ~ Isabel Fonseca
