“[T]he useful idiots, the leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of the Soviet socialist or Communist or whatever system, when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made the point: never bother with leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher. [...] They serve a purpose only at the stage of destabilization of a nation. For example, your leftists in the United States: all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defenders. They are instrumental in the process of the subversion only to destabilize a nation. When their job is completed, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they get disillusioned, when they see that Marxist-Leninists come to power—obviously they get offended—they think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will be lined up against the wall and shot.”
Yuri Bezmenov

“Where visual artists are concerned, the Baroque sculptor and architect Bernini and the painter and sculptor Picasso were clearly adept at both experiential and instrumental attending, says Tellegen, as is the modern architect Frank Gehry.

Scott Fitzgerald once admitted to "wrapping one of his romantic flings in cellophane" for later artistic use and notes that "this kind of heartless but honest professionalism is not uncommon among creative people.”

Dada Bhagwan
“One has thieving intention himself, otherwise no one can ever steal from him; no one can ever rob him. One’s own intention does the stealing; the thief is simply instrumental (nimit) in that. Really, the account is one’s own.”

Dada Bhagwan
“That which is external, it is instrumental (naimitik); it is relative and it is perishable [destructive]. Instrumental means no one has a say in it. One’s actions are not of his own free will; he is under the control of external power. So on what basis do you need to object? Sooner or later you will have to become free from objections.”
Dada Bhagwan

“La verdadera compasión nace cuando se entiende que lo que alguien percibe como la verdad es, a todos los efectos, la verdad.”

James Rhodes
“Todo es por culpa de mi cabeza. El enemigo.lo que me acabará matando; una mina antipersona, una bomba con el cronómetro activado, moriarty. Mi puta cabeza que me hace llorar y gritar y aullar y frotarme los ojos de pura frustración. Siempre presente, constante solo en su inconstancia, rabiosa echada a perder, espantosa, retorcida, errada, aguda, afilada, depredadora”
James Rhodes, Instrumental: A Memoir of Madness, Medication and Music
