Media quotes
Media
If I use the media, even with tricks, to publicize a black youth being shot in the back in Teaneck, New Jersey... then I should be praised for it, and it's more of a comment on them than me that it would take tricks to make them cover the loss of life.

- Sharpton, Rev. Al
Don't argue for other people's weaknesses. Don't argue for your own. When you make a mistake, admit it, correct it, and learn from it -- immediately.

- Covey, Stephen R.
The intermediate stage between socialism and capitalism is alcoholism.

- Norman Brenner
I roamed the countryside searching for answers to things I did not understand. Why thunder lasts longer than that which causes it, and why immediately on its creation the lightning becomes visible to the eye while thunder requires time to travel. How the various circles of water form around the spot which has been struck by a stone and why a bird sustains itself in the air. These questions and other strange phenomena engaged my thought throughout my life.

- Da Vinci, Leonardo
I can get a better grasp of what is going on in the world from one good Washington dinner party than from all the background information NBC piles on my desk.

- Walters, Barbara
Cinema, radio, television, magazines are a school of inattention: people look without seeing, listen in without hearing.

- Bresson, Robert
The author of genius does keep till his last breath the spontaneity, the ready sensitiveness, of a child, the "innocence of eye" that means so much to the painter, the ability to respond freshly and quickly to new scenes, and to old scenes as though they were new; to see traits and characteristics as though each were new-minted from the hand of God instead of sorting them quickly into dusty categories and pigeon-holing them without wonder or surprise; to feel situations so immediately and keenly that the word "trite" has hardly any meaning for him; and always to see "the correspondences between things" of which Aristotle spoke two thousand years ago.

- Dorothea Brande
By interpreting freedom as the propagation and immediate gratification of needs, people distort their own nature, for they engender in themselves a multitude of pointless and foolish desires, habits, and incongruous stratagems. Their lives are motivated only by mutual envy, sensuality, and ostentation.

- Fyodor Dostoevsky
There are only two forces that can carry light to all the corners of the globe... the sun in the heavens and the Associated Press down here.

- Twain, Mark
The curse of me and my nation is that we always think things can be bettered by immediate action of some sort, any sort rather than no sort.

- Pound, Ezra
The link between ideas and action is rarely direct. There is almost always an intermediate step in which the idea is overcome. De Tocqueville points out that it is at times when passions start to govern human affairs that ideas are most obviously translated into political action. The translation of ideas into action is usually in the hands of people least likely to follow rational motives. Hence, it is that action is often the nemesis of ideas, and sometimes of the men who formulate them. One of the marks of the truly vigorous society is the ability to dispense with passion as a midwife of action - the ability to pass directly from thought to action.

- Eric Hoffer
A president, however, must stand somewhat apart, as all great presidents have known instinctively. Then the language which has the power to survive its own utterance is the most likely to move those to whom it is immediately spoken.

- Pole, J. R.
The price one pays for pursuing any profession, or calling, is an immediate knowledge of its ugly side.

- Baldwin, James
The process of creating new, democratic organs of government power is beginning, and, as never before, the greatest responsibility rests with the broadcast media.

- Eduard Sagalaev
Admiration is a very short-lived passion that immediately decays upon growing familiar with its object, unless it be still fed with fresh discoveries, and kept alive by a new perpetual succession of miracles rising up to its view.

- Addison, Joseph
It is a misfortune that necessity has induced men to accord greater license to this formidable engine, in order to obtain liberty, than can be borne with less important objects in view; for the press, like fire, is an excellent servant, but a terrible master.

- Cooper, James F.
A women under stress is not immediately concerned with finding solutions to her problems but rather seeks relief by expressing herself and being understood.

- Gray, John
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
We have seen when the earth had to be prepared for the habitation of man, a veil, as it were, of intermediate being was spread between him and its darkness, in which were joined in a subdued measure, the stability and insensibility of the earth, and the passion and perishing of mankind.

- Ruskin, John
Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives.

- Robbins, Anthony
