Crowd quote by Jim Rohn

Don't join an easy crowd; you won't grow. — Jim Rohn

A crowd of grade-three thinkers, all shouting the same thing, all warming their hands at the fire of their own prejudices, will not thank you for pointing out the contradictions in their beliefs.

You must assume the feeling of the wish fulfilled until your assumption has all the sensory vividness of reality. You must imagine that you are already experiencing what you desire.

Leadership is getting players to believe in you. If you tell a teammate you're ready to play as tough as you're able to, you'd better go out there and do it. Players will see right through a phony. And they can tell when you're not giving it all you've got. Leadership is diving for a loose ball, getting the crowd involved, getting other players involved. It's being able to take it as well as dish it out. That's the only way you're going to get respect from the players. — Larry Bird

For a crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love. — Francis Bacon

Solitude is strength; to depend on the presence of the crowd is weakness. The man who needs a mob to nerve him is much more alone than he imagines. — Paul Brunton

The average person is gregarious; there is something in the spirit of the crowd that adds to the enjoyment of entertainment. — Ivor Novello

The coconut trees, lithe and graceful, crowd the beach like a minuet of slender elderly virgins adopting flippant poses. — William Manchester

The effects of the legacy media and Big Tech promote clear psychological manipulation, which has deeply distorted public-health policy.
