My thoughts went round and round and it occurred to me

My thoughts went round and round and it occurred to me that if I ever wrote a novel it would be of the ‘stream of consciousness’ type and deal with an hour in the life of a woman at the sink.
Barbara Pym
People often forget our emotional contribution to relationships and to marriage and that might be a completely sexist comment but, what I tried not to do [in “Fences”] is, I tried to just put that monologue as part of my stream of consciousness.
Viola Davis
Death is simply a break in our linear stream of consciousness.
Robert Lanza
Most of my bits are long stream-of-consciousness- type things, and when I’m doing them onstage, other places to take the theme or idea will hit me, and I just go with it.
Joe Rogan
There’s a fine line between a stream of consciousness and a babbling brook to nowhere.
Dan Harmon
I fantasised about F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ – I loved it, and then I read everything J. D. Salinger had to offer. Then I was turned on to Kerouac, and his spontaneous prose, his stream of consciousness way of writing. I admired him so much, and I romanticised so much about the ’40s and ’50s.
Garrett Hedlund
Continuous present is all we have, and stream of consciousness – which in a novel is arguably just as artificial as the stilted dialogue that you get in most conventional novels. They’re all stratagems to try to get closer to the texture of lived life.
Will Self
I can’t be naturalistic enough to make it sound real. So instead, I just wander around aimlessly knowing that I’ll be funny enough with stream of consciousness until I get to the actual explosively funny part.
Norm MacDonald
I think that will be a lot of fun for audiences to get the same stream of consciousness that was going through my head at the time. It was very exciting to suddenly recall what I was feeling at the time.
Roland Joffe
Having one of your like dumb sort of stream of consciousness tweets used against you on a right wing website is the ultimate compliment.
Julie Klausner
Once I learned how to talk, personally, by myself to any number of people, which means do radio without talking to anyone in particular on the air – I just found that my brain became very free to engage in a sort of stream-of-consciousness style of doing what I do.
Marc Maron
Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here’s Tom with the Weather.
Bill Hicks
It’s harder to play a quiet character because everything happens in their stream of consciousness. They’re thinking and feeling the world, but they’re saying very little, so then you have to communicate it through your behavior.
Viola Davis
Life is a continual flow of events, streaming in from the universal stream of consciousness in such a way that it exactly matches our own stream of consciousness.
Neale Donald Walsch
Since I didn’t spend a great amount of time on writing the lyrics, some people would argue that they’re too vague or simplistic, but I think it’s kind of good. I wouldn’t say they’re all stream of consciousness, but they’re not necessarily overwrought.
Jack Tatum
Hundreds of butterflies flitted in and out of sight like short-lived punctuation marks in a stream of consciousness without beginning or end.
Haruki Murakami
We are all pilgrims on an elusive and endless road… Despite our attempts to build lives on stone foundations, our spirits continuously flow. Endless streams of consciousness ripple through our minds.
Anthony Lawlor
