Pendulum Quotations

The pendulum of the mind alternates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong.
Carl Jung

We're waiting for the pendulum to swing back again, which I am absolutely confident it will.
Don Bluth

The country has come a long way in race relations, but the pendulum swings so far back. Everyone wants to be so sensitive.
Clint Eastwood

Opinion is like a pendulum and obeys the same law. If it goes past the centre of gravity on one side, it must go a like distance on the other; and it is only after a certain time that it finds the true point at which it can remain at rest.
Arthur Schopenhauer

No, no, no separate but equal... never the twain shall meet. And the pendulum kept swinging and it came to rest in the bastard hybrid known as the Daily Show.
Mo Rocca
