Best Quotes about Vision
Television is becoming a collage -- there are so many channels that you move through them making a collage yourself. In that sense, everyone sees something a bit different.
The cities and mansions that people dream of are those in which they finally live.
The world values the seer above all men, and has always done so. Nay, it values all men in proportion as they partake of the character of seers. The Elgin Marbles and a decision of John Marshall are valued for the same reason. What we feel in them is a painstaking submission to facts beyond the author's control, and to ideas imposed upon him by his vision. So with Beethoven's Symphonies, with Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations -- with any conceivable output of the human mind of which you approve. You love them because you say, These things were not made, they were seen.
Chapman, John Jay
When the sun rises, do you not see a round disc of fire somewhat like a guinea? O no, no, I see an innumerable company of the heavenly host crying Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty.
It is a medium of entertainment which permits millions of people to listen to the same joke at the same time, and yet remain lonesome.
Eliot, T. S.
Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.
Barker, Joel A.
Three people were at work on a construction site. All were doing the same job, but when each was asked what the job was, the answers varied. Breaking rocks, the first replied. Earning my living, the second said. Helping to build a cathedral, said the third.
To come to be you must have a vision of Being, a Dream, a Purpose, a Principle. You will become what your vision is.
Zarlenga, Peter Nivio
When I think of vision, I have in mind the ability to see above and beyond the majority.
Television is an excellent system when one has nothing to lose, as is the case with a nomadic and rootless country like the United States, but in Europe the affect of television is that of a bulldozer which reduces culture to the lowest possible denominator.
What do a few lies on TV matter? They can be swallowed, digested and excreted, or follow people when they doze off to sink into oblivion.
We can put television in its proper light by supposing that Gutenberg's great invention had been directed at printing only comic books.
Hutchins, Robert M.
The best vision is insight.
Forbes, Malcolm S.
Vision -- It reaches beyond the thing that is, into the conception of what can be. Imagination gives you the picture. Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture your own.
Television has brought back murder into the home -- where it belongs.
The television screen, so unlike the movie screen, sharply reduced human beings, revealed them as small, trivial, flat, in two banal dimensions, drained of color. Wasn't there something reassuring about it! -- that human beings were in fact merely images of a kind registered in one another's eyes and brains, phenomena composed of microscopic flickering dots like atoms. They were atoms -- nothing more. A quick switch of the dial and they disappeared and who could lament the loss?
Oates, Joyce Carol
The hand cannot reach higher than does the heart.
Marden, Orison Swett
Why should you be content with so little? Why shouldn't you reach out for something big?
Allen, Charles L.
Watching old movies is like spending an evening with those people next door. They bore us, and we wouldn't go out of our way to see them; we drop in on them because they're so close. If it took some effort to see old movies, we might try to find out which were the good ones, and if people saw only the good ones maybe they would still respect old movies. As it is, people sit and watch movies that audiences walked out on thirty years ago. Like Lot's wife, we are tempted to take another look, attracted not by evil but by something that seems much more shameful -- our own innocence.
I find television very educational. Every time someone switches it on I go into another room and read a good book.
We need to give ourselves permission to act out our dreams and visions, not look for more sensations, more phenomena, but live our strongest dreams -- even if it takes a lifetime.
The smallest bookstore still contains more ideas of worth than have been presented in the entire history of television.
Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps, down new roads, armed with nothing but their own vision.
A vision without a task is but a dream. A task without a vision is drudgery. A vision with a task is the hope of the world.
I want to use television not only to entertain, but to help people lead better lives.
Dwell in though upon the Grandest, And the Grandest you shall see; Fix your mind upon the Highest, And the Highest you shall be.
Most of us have jobs that are too small for our spirits.
The only limits are, as always, those of vision.
It takes someone with a vision of the possibilities to attain new levels of experience. Someone with the courage to live his dreams.
Much of what passes for quality on British television is no more than a reflection of the narrow elite which controls it and has always thought that its tastes were synonymous with quality.
Already we Viewers, when not viewing, have begun to whisper to one another that the more we elaborate our means of communication, the less we communicate.
Priestley, J. B.
St. Teresa of Avila described our life in this world as like a night at a second-class hotel.
The ultimate function of prophecy is not to tell the future, but to make it. Your successful past will block your visions of the future.
Barker, Joel A.
The ideal life is in our blood and never will be still. Sad will be the day for any man when he becomes contented with the thoughts he is thinking and the deeds he is doing -- where there is not forever beating at the doors of his soul some great desire to do something larger; which he knows he was meant and made to do.
Yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision, but today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
You have to see the pattern, understand the order and experience the vision.
Gerber, Michael E.
I got sick of turning on the TV and seeing my face.
Fox, Michael J.
Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.
In the theater, while you recognized that you were looking at a house, it was a house in quotation marks. On screen, the quotation marks tend to be blotted out by the camera.
TV is a fickle business. I'm only good for the length of my contract.
As a man is, so he sees. As the eye is formed, such are its powers.
If you want to look with only one eye then you will only see part of the picture.
Man watches his history on the screen with apathy and an occasional passing flicker of horror or indignation.
O'Brien, Conor Cruise
If I have seen further... it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.
Newton, Sir Isaac
There's a good deal in common between the mind's eye and the TV screen, and though the TV set has all too often been the boobtube, it could be, it can be, the box of dreams.
Guin, Ursula K. Le
Man cannot aspire if he looked down; if he rise, he must look up.
We need to learn to set our course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship.
Bradley, Omar Nelson
I was once ask if a big business man ever reached his objective. I replied that if a man ever reached his objective he was not a big business man.
Schwab, Charles M.
The kingdom of God could be realized simply by daring to live differently from the normal conventions. The kingdom of God in the teachings of Jesus was not an apocalyptic or heavenly projection of otherworldly desire. It was driven by a desire to think that there must be a better way to live together than the present state of affairs. And it called for a change of behavior in the present on the part of individuals invested in the vision.
Mack, Burton L.
Vision without action is a daydream. Action with without vision is a nightmare.
