Media
Wise anger is like fire from a flint: there is great ado to get it out; and when it does come, it is out again immediately.

- Henry, M.
The bigger the information media, the less courage and freedom they allow. Bigness means weakness.

- Sevareid, Eric
The world will never be long without some good reason to hate the unhappy; their real faults are immediately detected, and if those are not sufficient to sink them into infamy, an additional weight of calumny will be super added.

- Johnson, Samuel
The writer probably knows what he meant when he wrote a book, but he should immediately forget what he meant when he's written it.

- Golding, William
The press is no substitute for institutions. It is like the beam of a searchlight that moves restlessly about, bringing one episode and then another out of darkness into vision. Men cannot do the work of the world by this light alone. They cannot govern society by episodes, incidents, and eruptions. It is only when they work by a steady light of their own, that the press, when it is turned upon them, reveals a situation intelligible enough for a popular decision.

- Lippmann, Walter
The United States is unusual among the industrial democracies in the rigidity of the system of ideological control -- indoctrination, we might say -- exercised through the mass media.

- Chomsky, Noam
I sometimes compare press officers to riflemen on the Somme -- mowing down wave upon wave of distortion, taking out rank upon rank of supposition, deduction and gossip.

- Ingham, Bernard
The test of a real comedian is whether you laugh at him before he opens his mouth.

- Nathan, George Jean
The liberty of the Press is the Palladium of all the civil, political and religious rights of an Englishman.

- Junius
Speak the truth, but leave immediately after.

- Slovenian Proverb
Whenever man comes up with a better mousetrap, nature immediately comes up with a better mouse.

- Carswell, James
SCARIFICATION, n. A form of penance practised by the mediaeval pious. The rite was performed, sometimes with a knife, sometimes with a hot iron, but always, says Arsenius Asceticus, acceptably if the penitent spared himself no pain nor harmless disfigurement. Scarification, with other crude penances, has now been superseded by benefaction. The founding of a library or endowment of a university is said to yield to the penitent a sharper and more lasting pain than is conferred by the knife or iron, and is therefore a surer means of grace. There are, however, two grave objections to it as a penitential method: the good that it does and the taint of justice.

- Ambrose Bierce
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
There will always be a part, and always a very large part of every community, that have no care but for themselves, and whose care for themselves reaches little further than impatience of immediate pain, and eagerness for the nearest good.

- Samuel Johnson
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
It's a damn shame we have this immediate ticking off in the mind about how people sound. On the other hand, how many people really want to be operated upon by a surgeon who talks broad cockney?

- Aitkins, Eileen
We immediately become more effective when we decide to change ourselves rather than asking things to change for us.

- Stephen Covey
If a man sits down to think, he is immediately asked if has a headache.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
General principles are not the less true or important because from their nature they elude immediate observation; they are like the air, which is not the less necessary because we neither see nor feel it.

- Hazlitt, William
