20,332.  Jimmy’s Mum: Running about on them motorbikes all hours of the night I’m not surprised.  It’s not normal.  

 

Jimmy: Oh yeah, what’s normal then?  (GBH Film & Gangs: UK & Motorbike & Normal)  Quadrophenia 1979 starring Phil Daniels & Mark Wingett & Leslie Ash & Philip Davis & Sting & Toyah Willcox & Ray Winstone & Gary Shail & Michael Elphick et al, director Franc Roddam

 

 

2,136.  Living is abnormal.  (Life’s Like That & Normal)  Eugene Ionesco, Le Rhinoceros 1959

 

 

6,145.  ‘Why aren’t you in school?  I see you every day wandering around.’

 

‘Oh, they don’t miss me,’ she said.  ‘I’m antisocial, they say.  I don’t mix.  It’s so strange.  I’m very social indeed.  It all depends on what you mean by social, doesn’t it?  Social to me means talking to you about things like this.’  She rattled some chestnuts that had fallen off the tree in the front yard.  ‘Or talking about how strange the world is.  Being with people is nice.  But I don’t think it’s social to get a bunch of people together and then not let them talk, do you?  An hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running, another hour of transcription history or painting pictures, and more sports, but do you know, we never ask questions, or at least most don’t; they just run the answers at you, bing, bing, bing, and us sitting there for four more hours of film-teacher.  That’s not social to me at all.  It’s a lot of funnels and lot of water poured down the spout and out the bottom, and them telling us it’s wine when it’s not.  They run us so ragged by the end of the day we can’t do anything but go to bed or head for a Fun Park to bully people around ... I guess I’m everything they say I am, all right.  I haven't any friends.  That’s supposed to prove I'm abnormal.’  (Society & School & Normal & Conformity & Control & People)  Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 

 

 

6,148.  Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for – in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.  (Society & Capitalism & Normal & Life’s Like That)  Ellen Goodman 

 

 

6,175.  It must be something voluntary, something self-induced – like getting drunk, or talking yourself into believing some piece of foolishness because it happens to be in the Scriptures.  And then look at their idea of what's normal.  Believe it or not, a normal human being is one who can have an orgasm and is adjusted to society.  It’s unimaginable!  No question about what you do with your orgasms.  No question about the quality of your feelings and thoughts and perceptions.  And then what about the society you’re supposed to be adjusted to?  Is it a mad society or a sane one?  And even if it's pretty sane, is it right that anybody should be completely adjusted to it?  (Society & Normal & Orgasm & Conformity)  Aldous Huxley, Island 

 

 

6,323.  I get glimpses of the horror of normalcy.  Each of these innocents on the street is engulfed by a terror of their own ordinariness.  They would do anything to be unique.  (Self & Normal)  Katherine Dunn, Geek Love 

 

 

13,586.  I never thought I was normal, never tried to be normal.  Normal runs in that little rut down there.  I don’t know nothing about being normal.  I’ve been in jail all my life, man.  I lived on the handball court.  This guy raised me up.  All the men in the joint raised me up, told me what to do, what was right and wrong, told me where to sit down, where to stand up.  I just did whatever I was told.  You know, and I got to the end of it and I just turned around and said, ‘Wow, far out!’  (Cult & Normal & Murder)  Charles Manson, interview Tom Snyder, 1981

 

 

55,959.  I think I’m quite normal in actual fact.  Brian Clough

 

 

55,960.  Thank God we’re normal,

Yes, this is our finest shower!  John Osborne, The Entertainer  

 

 

55,961.  How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being.  Oscar Wilde

 

 

55,962.  Normality is to be different.  Every person is a different person.  And one day you need to be aware of your difference.  Aware that you are not the same as the others.  That is to be normal.  Alejandro Jodorowsky

 

 

55,963.  I’m in trouble because I’m normal and slightly arrogant.  A lot of people don’t like themselves and I happen to be totally in love with myself.  (Normal & Boxers: Tyson)  Mike Tyson

 

 

55,965.  Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.  Albert Camus

 

 

55,966.  I’m pretty normal, you know?  Britney Spears

    

 

55,967.  When ghetto living seems normal, you have no shame, no privacy.  (Normal & Privacy & Malcolm X)  Malcolm X  

 

 

55,968.  The fact to which we have got to cling, as to a lifebelt, is that it is possible to be a normal decent person and yet be fully alive.  Allen Ginsberg

 

 

55,969.  To be normal is the ideal aim of the unsuccessful.  Carl Gustav Jung

 

 

55,970.  Normal is not something to aspire to, it’s something to get away from.  Jodie Foster

 

 

55,971.  To study the abnormal is the best way of understanding the normal.  William James

 

 

83,235.  The trouble with normal is it always gets worse.  Bruce Cockburn

  

 

83,236.  The perfect normal person is rare in our civilization.  Karen Horney  

 

 

83,237.  Normal is enormously susceptible to swinging with the gusts of politics and history.  Disguised as scientific and fixed, it is subjective and protean.  Judith Levine, Therapy 2003

 

 

85,818.  Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.  (Progress & Normal)  Frank Zappa

 

 

86,029.  What we call ‘normal’ is a product of repression, denial, splitting, projection, introjection and other forms of destructive action on experience.  It is radically estranged from the structure of being.  The more one sees this, the more senseless it is to continue with generalized descriptions of supposedly specifically schizoid, schizophrenic, hysterical ‘mechanisms.’  There are forms of alienation that are relatively strange to statistically ‘normal’ forms of alienation.  The ‘normally’ alienated person, by reason of the fact that he acts more or less like everyone else, is taken to be sane.  Other forms of alienation that are out of step with the prevailing state of alienation are those that are labeled by the ‘formal’ majority as bad or mad.  (Psychiatry & Normal)  R D Laing, The Politics of Experience/The Bird of Paradise

 

 

87,514.  For me, insanity is super sanity.  The normal is psychotic.  Normal means lack of imagination, lack of creativity.  (Sanity & Insanity & Normal)  Jean Dubuffet

 

 

83,615.  Just another normal day in the office.  (Office & Normal)  The Office: Charity s2e5 ***** Brent

 

 

97,898.  ‘He invited crises and that he couldn’t stand normalcy.’  (Watergate & Nixon & Crisis & Normal)  Dick Cavett’s Watergate, Kissinger of Nixon

 

 

118,225.  I’m trying to think of the last time I actually took some time to be normal, you know.  (GBH Films & Normal)  Chopper 2000 starring Eric Bana & Vince Colosimo & Simon Lyndon & David Field & Kate Beahan & Dan Wyllie & Fletcher Humphrys & Robert Rabiah & Brian Mannix & Serge Liistro & Skye Wansey & Renne Brack et al, director Andrew Dominik, him to her 

 

 

128,002.  We can go back to just being normal.  (Spy & Assassinations & Normal)  Killing Eve: Do You Know How to Dispose of a Body? Eve to husband, BBC 2019

 

 

129,324.  Geniuses are weird.  Why, do you think you’re an example of maturity?  Do you?  Think you’re considered normal?  Do you think it’s normal to arrange your shirts by colour?  (Gangs: Spain & Normal & Heists: Spain)  Money Heist s2e3, Tokyo to Professor    

 

 

134,025.  There is nothing normal about anything we do.  (Gangs US: Missouri & Normal)  Ozark s3e10: All in, son to family, Netflix 2020

 

 

100,341.  So much of the news this year has been hopeless and drepressing and above all confusing, to which the only response is Oh Dear.  (News & Normal & Reality)  Adam Curtis, Oh Dearism II, short film 2014 

 

100,342.  That defeatest response has become a central part of a new system of political control.  (News & Normal & Reality)  ibid.

 

100,343.  A constant state of destablilised perception.  (News & Normal & Reality)  ibid.

 

100,344.  Quantitative Easing: the equivalent of £24,000 for every family in Britain … The biggest transfer of wealth to the rich in recent documented history.  (News & Normal & Reality)  ibid. 

 

100,345.  Nothing really makes any coherent sense.  (News & Normal & Reality)  ibid. 

 

 

139,326.  This is the normal world.  You go to work in a city.  All around you are enormous new buildings.  They look alike.  But you will never be able to afford to live in them.  Because they are not really homes.  They are blocks of money bought by global investors whose money had nowhere else to go.  (Normal & Fake & Reality & House)  Adam Curtis, Living in an Unreal World, BBC 2016

 

139,327.  They and you live in a dream world detached from reality.  You spend your days and nights on social media.  (Normal & Fake & Reality)  ibid.

 

139,328.  But as you in glass-walled offices you know that the targets are manipulated and fake.  And the managers know that you know.  But you all sit there are pretend it is objective and rational.  (Normal & Fake & Reality & Office)  ibid.  

 

139,329.  The [Soviet] system was starting to crack.  Russia became a society where everyone knew that what their leaders said is not real.  Because they could see with their own eyes the economy was falling apart.  But everybody had to play along and pretend that it was real.  Because no-one could imagine any alternative.  One Soviet writer called it Hypernormalisation.  (Normal & Fake & Reality & Soviet Union)  ibid.  

 

 

100,193.  We too came to think of ourselves as simplified beings, whose behaviour and even feelings could be analysed objectively by scientific systems which told us what was the normal way to feel.  And both we and our leaders have come to believe that this is the true definition of freedom, there is no other.  But there is.  There is an alternative idea of freedom but we have hidden and forgotten about it … The dream of not only changing the world but also transforming people.  And then by changing them you can transform them from themselves …The architects of our present world set us a terrible trap: in seeking to protect us from the dangers of the other kind of freedom [hope] they led us into a world without meaning.  (Politics & Individual & Freedom & Inequality & Economics & Market & Civil Liberties & Liberty & Normal)  Adam Curtis: The Trap III: We Will Force You to be Free, BBC 2021
