„The mind of a yogi is under his control; he is not under the control of his mind.“

—  Ramakrishna Indian mystic and religious preacher 1836 - 1886

Source: The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna (1942), p. 248
Contexte: It is not good for ordinary people to say, "I am He." The waves belong to the water. Does the water belong to the waves?
The upshot of the whole thing is that, no matter what path you follow, yoga is impossible unless the mind becomes quiet. The mind of a yogi is under his control; he is not under the control of his mind.

„The media today are controlled by the big corporations. It's all about ratings and money.“

—  Jesse Ventura American politician and former professional wrestler 1951

Source: Don't Start the Revolution Without Me! (2008), Ch. 3 (p. 48)
Contexte: The media today are controlled by the big corporations. It's all about ratings and money. Believe it or not, I think the downfall of our press today was the show 60 Minutes. Up until it came along, news was expected to lose money, in order to bring the people fair reporting and the truth. But when 60 Minutes became the top-rated program on television, the light went on. The corporate honchos said, "Wait a minute, you mean if we entertain with the news, we can make money?" It was the realization that, if packaged the correct way, the news could make you big bucks. No longer was it a matter of scooping somebody else on a story, but whether 20/20's ratings this week were better than Dateline's. I'm not knocking 60 Minutes. It was tremendously well done and hugely successful, but in the long run it could end up being a detriment to society.

„Religion is just mind control.“

—  George Carlin American stand-up comedian 1937 - 2008

Doin' It Again, Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics (1990)
Contexte: Same with religion. Religion is nothing but mind control. Religion is just trying to control your mind, control your thoughts, so they're gonna tell you some things you shouldn't say because they're... sins. And besides telling you things you shouldn't say, religion is gonna suggest some things that you ought to be saying; "Here's something you ought to say first thing when you wake up in the morning; here's something you ought to say just before you go to sleep at night; here's something we always say on the third Wednesday in April after the first full moon in spring at 4 o'clock when the bells ring." Religion is always suggesting things you ought to be saying.

„The mechanical mind has a passion for control — of everything except itself.“

—  L. P. Jacks British educator, philosopher, and Unitarian minister 1860 - 1955

Revolt Against Mechanism (1933).
Contexte: The mechanical mind has a passion for control — of everything except itself. Beyond the control it has won over the forces of nature it would now win control over the forces of society of stating the problem and producing the solution, with social machinery to correspond.
