Playing Mind Game Quotes

And from the time I was a kid, Ive had this internal monologue roaring through my head, which doesnt stop - unless Im asleep. Im sure every person has this; its just that my monologue is particularly loud. And particularly troublesome. Im constantly asking myself questions. And the problem with that is that your brain is like a computer: If you ask a question, its programmed to respond, whether theres an answer or not.

And it's good for me and my friends. There are only the three positions.

I was obsessed with the idea of sitting next to someone and playing a game that we were both competing in, and we were also competing with the computer. That was mind-blowing to me at that time.

By these pleasures it is permitted to relax the mind with play, in turmoils of the mind, or when our labors are light, or in great tension, or as a method of passing the time. A reliable witness is Cicero, when he says (De Oratore, 2): 'men who are accustomed to hard daily toil, when by reason of the weather they are kept from their work, betake themselves to playing with a ball, or with knucklebones or with dice, or they may also contrive for themselves some new game at their leisure.'
