Media quotes
Media
Belief is with them mechanical, voluntary: they believe what they are paid for -- they swear to that which turns to account. Do you suppose, that after years spent in this manner, they have any feeling left answering to the difference between truth and falsehood?

- Hazlitt, William
Become aware of internal, subjective, sub-verbal experiences, so that these experiences can be brought into the world of abstraction, of conversation, of naming, etc. with the consequence that it immediately becomes possible for a certain amount of control to be exerted over these hitherto unconscious and uncontrollable processes.

- Maslow, Abraham H.
Even a purely moral act that has no hope of any immediate and visible political effect can gradually and indirectly, over time, gain in political significance.

- Havel, Vaclav
The medium is the message. This is merely to say that the personal and social consequences of any medium -- that is, of any extension of ourselves -- result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology.

- Mcluhan, Marshall
We are living in the machine age. For the first time in history the comedian has been compelled to supply himself with jokes and comedy material to compete with the machine. Whether he knows it or not, the comedian is on a treadmill to oblivion.

- Allen, Fred A.
Charm was a scheme for making strangers like and trust a person immediately, no matter what the charmer had in mind.

- Kurt Vonnegut
There is a terrific disadvantage in not having the abrasive quality of the press applied to you daily. Even though we never like it, and even though we wish they didn't write it, and even though we disapprove, there isn't any doubt that we could not do the job at all in a free society without a very, very active press.

- Kennedy, John F.
The media transforms the great silence of things into its opposite. Formerly constituting a secret, the real now talks constantly. News reports, information, statistics, and surveys are everywhere.

- Certeau, Michel De
If we don't see a failure as a challenge to modify our approach, but rather as a problem with ourselves, as a personality defect, we will immediately feel overwhelmed.

- Robbins, Anthony
What ever our wandering our happiness will always be found within a narrow compass, and in the middle of the objects more immediately within our reach.

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
To me this world is all one continued vision of fancy or imagination, and I feel flattered when I am told so. What is it sets Homer, Virgil and Milton in so high a rank of art? Why is the Bible more entertaining and instructive than any other book? Is it not because they are addressed to the imagination, which is spiritual sensation, and but immediately to the understanding or reason?

- Blake, William
Nothing is beautiful, only man: on this piece of naivete rests all aesthetics, it is the first truth of aesthetics. Let us immediately add its second: nothing is ugly but degenerate man -- the domain of aesthetic judgment is therewith defined.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
If a man should happen to reach perfection in this world, he would have to die immediately to enjoy himself.

- Billings, Josh
The most important service rendered by the press and the magazines is that of educating people to approach printed matter with distrust.

- Butler, Samuel
One of the most difficult tasks confronting philosophers is to descend from the world of thought to the actual world. Language is the immediate actuality of thought. Just as philosophers have given thought an independent existence, so they were bound to make language into an independent realm.

- Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels
Tolerance it a tremendous virtue, but the immediate neighbors of tolerance are apathy and weakness.

- Goldsmith, Sir James
Today's comedian has a cross to bear that he built himself. A comedian of the older generation did an act and he told the audience, This is my act. Today's comic is not doing an act. The audience assumes he's telling the truth. What is truth today may be a damn lie next week.

- Bruce, Lenny
The child is not to be educated for the present, but for the remote future, and often is opposition to the immediate future.

- Paul, Jean
A serious problem in America is the gap between academe and the mass media, which is our culture. Professors of humanities, with all their leftist fantasies, have little direct knowledge of American life and no impact whatever on public policy.

- Paglia, Camille
There are people whom one loves immediately and forever. Even to know they are alive in the world with one is quite enough.

- Nancy Spain
