James Dashner
“Wonder why we can do this,' he called out with his mind. The mental effort of speaking to her was already straining—he felt a headache forming like a bulge in his brain.
'Maybe we were lovers,' Teresa said.
Thomas tripped and crashed to the ground. Smiling sheepishly at Minho, who’d turned to look without slowing, Thomas got back up and caught up to him.
'What?' he finally asked. He sensed a laugh from her, a watery image full of color.”
James Dashner, The Maze Runner

Robert Barr
“No one can tell, when two people walk closely together, what unconscious communication one mind may have with another”
Robert Barr, Selected Stories Of Robert Barr

Bauvard
“Welcome to Telepathics Anonymous. Don’t bother introducing yourself.”
Bauvard, Some Inspiration for the Overenthusiastic

Philip K. Dick
“Well, I hate to admit it, but it is possible that there is (one) such a thing as telepathy and (two) that the CETI project's idea that we might communicate with extraterrestrial beings via telepathy is possibly a reasonable idea--if telepathy exists and if ETIs exist. Otherwise we are trying to communicate with someone who doesn't exist with a system which doesn't work.”
Philip K. Dick, The Dark-Haired Girl

Seanan McGuire
“Sarah turned her narrow-eyed gaze on him, making me glad once more that Antimony's comic books got it wrong, and telepaths can't actually kill you with their brains. Give you a whopping headache and earworm you with annoying jingles, yes; kill you, no. (Although sometimes, when she's managed to stick "The Happy Banana Song" in my head for a week, I sort of wish she could kill people with her brain. It would be kinder.)”
Seanan McGuire, Discount Armageddon

Tade Thompson
“I can read minds but I still don't understand women. Or men. Humans. I don't understand humans.”
Tade Thompson, Rosewater

“It's telepathy, over.”
Flash Gordon

C.B. Cook
“Hello, my name is Albany, and I have a telepathic connection with my twin sister, along with the ability to read minds.”
C.B. Cook, Twinepathy

Michio Kaku
“In science fiction, telepaths often communicate across language barriers, since thoughts are considered to be universal. However, this might not be true. Emotions and feelings may well be nonverbal and universal, so that one could telepathically send them to anyone, but rational thinking is so closely tied to language that it is very unlikely that complex thoughts could be sent across language barriers. Words will still be sent telepathically in their original language.”
Michio Kaku, The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind

James Dashner
“Thomas was baffled by this girl—first the connection he’d felt to her from the very beginning, then the mind-speaking, now this. “Everything about you is weird. You know that, right?”
“Judging by your little hiding spot, I’d say you’re not so normal yourself. Like living in the woods, do ya?”
James Dashner, The Maze Runner

Stephen King
“Look- here's a table covered with red cloth. On it is a cage the size of a small fish aquarium. In the cage is a white rabbit with a pink nose and pink-rimmed eyes. [...] On its back, clearly marked in blue ink, is the numeral 8. [...] The most interesting thing here isn't even the carrot-munching rabbit in the cage, but the number on its back. Not a six, not a four, not nineteen-point-five. It's an eight. This is what we're looking at, and we all see it. I didn't tell you. You didn't ask me. I never opened my mouth and you never opened yours. We're not even in the same year together, let alone the same room... except we are together. We are close. We're having a meeting of the minds. [...] We've engaged in an act of telepathy. No mythy-mountain shit; real telepathy.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Dianne Duvall
“Susan glared up at the man. "Let go of me."

"Tell me where you found it!" he shouted, giving her a little shake. "Did you even find it? Or did you steal it from the person it belongs to?"

Fury suffused Stanislav as he took a step forward.

Before he could leap to her aid, Susan drew her free arm back and punched the man in the face. Ow! Sh**, that hurt! she exclaimed mentally. But it didn't stop her from delivering a wicked uppercut when the man released her arm and stumbled backward.

Stanislav's jaw dropped.

She really could handle herself.”
Dianne Duvall, Awaken the Darkness

“We live in a world that values words over thoughts. This is precisely why people talk all the time and don’t think! Which is more valuable? Thoughts or words? People may talk about doing something, every day, and end up never doing it because it is not in their thoughts! On the other hand, a person may think about doing something, every day, without speaking of it, and at the end of the day the job is done. The energy is saved as is executed in the final outcome. So which is more valuable? The thoughts of a man or the words of a man? The thoughts of a man are more valuable than his words, because the thoughts of a man are the contents of his mind! And it is the mind of man that makes a man and dictates a man! And so, why do we value words over mental telepathy? Why do we shy away from the notion of mind communication? Why do we value the communication of words over the communication of minds? Is it because most of you do not understand it? Well, you do not understand it because you are too busy talking and not thinking. Not thinking about anything. Here is the big question: Should a thought reader value the words of the man over his thoughts? Are the words spoken the truth or are the thoughts in the mind, the truth? You think about it. You decide.”
C. JoyBell C.

“I wish my whispers are heard and requited as a storm... Because, the storm is that keeps me alive!”

“When it occurs without having to voice it - vibin' on the same page, flowin' on the same wave, soakin' up the same light rays.”
T.F. Hodge, From Within I Rise: Spiritual Triumph Over Death and Conscious Encounters with "The Divine Presence"

Kurt Vonnegut
“The reason creatures wanted to use language instead of mental telepathy was that they found out they could get so much more done with language. Language made them so much more active. Mental telepathy, with everybody constantly telling everybody everything, produced a sort of generalized indifference to all information. But language, with its slow, narrow meanings, made it possible to think about one thing at a time -- to start thinking in terms of projects.”
Kurt Vonnegut Jr., God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

Arthur C. Clarke
“Let us say that you might have become a telepathic cancer, a malignant mentality which in its inevitable dissolution would have poisoned other and greater minds.”
Arthur C. Clarke, Childhood's End

“:We aren’t leaving here,: Cricket answered sleepily
:Oh, but we are,: insisted the wolf with confidence. :You have bigger business about you than lingering here in bird paradise.:
After everything that had happened with Neferre, Cricket knew the wolf’s words were true but decided to ignore them. :They don’t like being called birds,: she scolded. :And do you have gas? Ugh.:
:Just the same,: said the wolf evenly, :time will take us from here. Be prepared when that happens.:”
Ash Gray, The Infinite Athenaeum

“It is raining.  The clock ticks.  I am leaning on my elbow.  The wind
blows through the cracks.  The door rattles in its frame.  My arm is
tired of staying in one position.  There is a pressure on the wrist.  My
temple burns on one side.  I wonder what will happen next.  Someone
laughs.  If he had heard the rain, the clock, and the door, he would
have kept silent.  Had I been laughing, I would not have heard these
things.

Gaze into a cat's eye or a gorilla's.  You will notice a peculiar thing that
will make you shudder.  sometimes cats claw at human eyes.  Some-
times gorillas enrage.

Telepathy and death are wound inextricably together.  To see why this
is so, you must understand consciousness.  When, late at night in
your bed, you hear a distant automobile, you and the driver are parts
of yourself.  When you speak, you are alone and the listener is both
you and himself.  Two men, one on the mountain and the other in the
village, cannot communicate.  Each is looking into a mirror.  Wave,
and *he* waves - shout, and *he* replies.  All of us see the same
moon and feel the same heartbeat, but we can never admit it.  One
says the moon is a pale disc, another that it is a satellite of the Earth,
a third that it is a silver world.  My heart thumps, yours clatters, and his
booms.  Consciousness is distortion.

But much telepathy passes unnoticed.  Dogs in the night, a dream of
Mabel, Dr. Rhines' dice games - these are self-conscious tricks that
mean nothing.  What of the more obvious examples?  You know when
another is lying.  You know who is going down the stair.  You know
emotion without seeing it.  You know the intelligence of others.  Some
sign gives them away.  It is coincidence?  Guessing games again?  
Then think of what you could not possibly know, what no one could tell
you.  Is there any doubt you do not know that fellow on the gibbet or
the thought of that girl on the stake?  Watch someone die and you
may read his mind at ease.

You need not got so far.  We human beings understand one another
better than we think.  Argue, deny, shout, denounce, destroy.  Nothing
alters truth.  You, reader, see my flaws and concentrate on them.  You
wonder why I choose this word and not that.

My arguments are weak and you can drum up stronger ones against
them.  But we are eye to eye for all of that.”
E.E. Rehmus

Petra Hermans
“You call it telepathy. The strategy of Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955) made him a good student.”
Petra Hermans

Frank Herbert
“... one doesn't need telepathy to read your intentions.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Elizabeth Eiler
“Just like individual people, each animal is unique and endowed with different gifts, and some are more spiritually proficient than others. Some are young souls with limited understanding of their mission and purpose, while others have learned spiritual mastery through many lifetimes of experience. All, however, can help us develop fluency in the heart-based language of telepathy.”
Elizabeth Eiler, Swift and Brave: Sacred Souls of Animals

Richard   Roberts
“She rolled onto her side, crumpling more MRI print outs, and stared at the picture on her bedside table. It was a photo of Jady at five years old. She was sleeping peacefully, hair matted on her forehead and clutching her pink blanket, the tag up to her nose. Ella remembered those precious minutes, before she’d sneak out for the early train, when she’d spoon her warm little girl, smell her hair and, if she closed her eyes, feel as if they were one, safe from the world. It had been on a morning like that when she’d been convinced that she stopped Jady’s hiccups by sending comforting thoughts.”
Richard H. Roberts, Tuning In

Richard   Roberts
“Jon reeled, as Lex’s dark psyche began infecting him like an emotional contagion. As usual, the physical symptoms came first: his heart rate ramped up and caffeine jitters buzzed down to his fingertips. He knew how this dinner would go, and after traveling for twenty-six hours, he simply didn’t have it in him. Thankfully, he’d had a lifetime of practice bowing out of social situations.”
Richard H. Roberts, Tuning In

Ana Claudia Antunes
“People ask me where I got my x-ray powers. I inherited them from my parents in parental supervision. Erase the dots and your doubts if you think that I was 'raysed' alone.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, The Tao of Physical and Spiritual
