10 QUOTES WITH «SUBLIMINAL»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word subliminal.
1
Edward Burtynsky
Somebody referred to what I do as subliminal activism, which I like.
2
Carter Burwell
Music is the subliminal connecting adhesive in film, or at least in narrative feature films.
3
Lee Child
I had been coming to America very frequently for many, many years, so I had plenty of exposure - and maybe the best kind of exposure, because I think first impressions are very important. Maybe I notice stuff that is just subliminal to people who live here all the time.
4
Julie Klausner
A relationship book I once read told women to use the word 'fun' whenever possible. The author claimed it had a subliminal aphrodisiac effect on men, who want a relaxed girl attached only to good times - the human equivalent of Diet Coke. This is not me.
5
Leonard Mlodinow
Our subliminal mental processes operate outside awareness because they arise in these portions of our mind that are inaccessible to our conscious self; their inaccessibility is due to the architecture of the brain rather than because they have been subject to Freudian motivational forces like repression.
6
Leonard Mlodinow
By subliminal, I mean things that occur in our world that are below the threshold of consciousness but do have a psychological effect on us.
7
Leonard Mlodinow
On the unconscious level, touch seems to impart a subliminal sense of caring and connection.
8
Roger Rosenblatt
Every writing teacher gives the subliminal message, every time they teach: 'Your life counts for something.' In no other subject that I know of is that message given.
9
Graham Swift
It can be dismaying, all the same, for a novelist to compare the slowness of the writing with the speed of the reading. Novels are read in a matter of days, even hours. A writer may labor for weeks over a particular passage that will have its effect on a reader for an instant - and that effect may be subliminal or barely noticed.
10
Robert Wyatt
I think that pop, and to some extent rock, are like sport and fashion industry in that they're about the exuberance of youth. That's the sort of subliminal ideology.
