Richard Dawkins
“The meme for blind faith secures its own perpetuation by the simple unconscious expedient of discouraging rational inquiry.”
Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene

Neil Gaiman
“Have you thought about what it means to be a god?" asked the man. He had a beard and a baseball cap. "It means you give up your mortal existence to become a meme: something that lives forever in people's minds, like the tune of a nursery rhyme. It means that everyone gets to re-create you in their own minds. You barely have your own identity any more. Instead, you're a thousand aspects of what people need you to be. And everyone wants something different from you. Nothing is fixed, nothing is stable.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

Richard Dawkins
“We need a name for the new replicator, a noun that conveys the idea of a unit of cultural transmission, or a unit of imitation. 'Mimeme' comes from a suitable Greek root, but I want a monosyllable that sounds a bit like 'gene'. I hope my classicist friends will forgive me if I abbreviate mimeme to meme. If it is any consolation, it could alternatively be thought of as being related to 'memory', or to the French word même. It should be pronounced to rhyme with 'cream'.”
Richard Dawkins, The Selfish Gene

William Shakespeare
“What, you egg? / [He stabs him.]”
William Shakespeare, Macbeth

Neil Gaiman
“Zastanawiałeś się nad tym, co oznacza bycie bogiem? - spytał. Miał brodę i czapeczkę baseballową. - To oznacza odrzucenie egzystencji materialnej i przemianę w mem: coś, co trwa wiecznie w umysłach ludzi, jak dziecięca piosenka. Znaczy to, że każdy odtwarza cię sam w swoim umyśle. Praktycznie nie masz już tożsamości. Stajesz się tysiącem aspektów tego, czego pragną od ciebie ludzie. A każdy pragnie czegoś zupełnie innego. Nic nie jest stałe, nic nie jest niezmienne.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

“So, the first things we must do is decide which it is: A
substantive and hidden thing that produces cultural symptoms or it is the meme “hypothesis” and testable. If it is not falsifiable it cannot meet the criteria of scientific fact, according to the very structure of the scientific methodology itself. This would put it in the latter category of faith-based belief systems”
L.B. Ó Ceallaigh, The Bifrost and The Ark: Examining the Cult and Religion of New Atheism

Gabriel García Márquez
“Her happiness lay at the other extreme from discipline, in noisy parties, in gossip about lovers, in prolonged sessions with her girl friends, where they learned to smoke and talked about male business, and where they once got their hands on some cane liquor and ended up naked, measuring and comparing the parts of their bodies.”
Gabriel García Márquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude

Fiadh Kelly
“unfortunately, one of the logical consequences of the meme hypothesis that, as a parasite, all information becomes discursive thought. Schizophrenics are typically the only people to experience discursive thoughts, and most people are not, in fact, schizophrenic.”
Andrew T Kelly, The Bifrost and The Ark: Examining the Cult and Religion of New Atheism

Rachel D. Greenwell
“Not having self-worth can be detrimental to your health, wealth, success, relationships, parenting ability, happiness, and probably a lot more. It ruins your experience of life. Worth is like a light switch. Low self-worth switches the light off. You live in the darkness and the shadows, unable to see all the beautiful things in the world around you. By increasing self-worth, the light switches on. Now you can see all the beauty life has to offer in all its colorful glory.”
Rachel D. Greenwell

Arthur Schopenhauer
“Că însă un patron absolut ticălos precum Hegel, a cărui întreagă pseudofilozofare a fost de fapt o amplificare monstruoasă a argumentului ontologic, a căutat să-I apere pe acesta împotriva criticii lui Kant constituie o alianţă de care însuşi argumentului ontologic i s-ar face ruşine, oricât de puţin are el de-a face cu ruşinea.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, On the Fourfold Root of the Principle of Sufficient Reason

“Memes don't move: Signal-instigators do. This means the idea of a meme may be a meme, but the spoken word 'meme' is not itself a meme; it is a signal. A meme can only be a state of matter coded in 'brain language.”
Robert Aunger, The Electric Meme: A New Theory of How We Think
