A crowd is defined as a group of people that have gathered for a common purpose or intent such as at a demonstration, a sports event, or during looting


  • A crowd is not the sum of the individuals who compose it. Rather it is a species of animal, without language or real consciousness, born when they gather, dying when they depart.
    • Gene Wolfe, "The Shadow of the Torturer" (1980) - Severian, Chapter 31
