Favorite Modern Communication Quotes

1. "It is true that technical progress in modern times has linked men together like a complex nervous system. The means of travel are numerous and communication is instantaneous - we are joined together materially like the cells of a single body, but this body has as yet no soul. This organism is not yet aware of its unity as a whole."
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
2. "Just as characteristic, perhaps, is the intellectual interdependence created through the development of the modern media of communication: post, telegraph, telephone, and popular press."
Author: Christian Lous Lange
3. "During the past few decades, modern technology, with radio, TV, air travel, and satellites, has woven a network of communication which puts each part of the world in to almost instant contact with all the other parts."
Author: David Bohm
4. "A third ideal that has made its way in the modern world is reliance on reason, especially reason disciplined and enriched by modern science. An eternal basis of human intercommunication is reason."
Author: Emily Greene Balch
5. "Yet the possibility of information storage, beyond what men and governments ever had before, can make available at the touch of a button a man's total history (including remarks put on his record by his kindergarten teacher about his ability and character). And with the computer must be placed the modern scientific technical capability which exists for wholesale monitoring of telephone, cable, Telex and microwave transmissions which carry much of today's spoken and written communications. The combined use of the technical capability of listening in on all these forms of communications with the high-speed computer literally leaves no place to hide and little room for privacy."
Author: Francis August Schaeffer
6. "Moderate giftedness has been made worthless by the printing press and radio and television and satellites and all that. A moderately gifted person who would have been a community treasure a thousand years ago has to give up, has to go into some other line of work, since modern communications put him or her into daily competition with nothing but the world's champions."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
7. "...simply moderate giftedness has been made worthless by the printing press and radio and television and satellites and all that. A moderately gifted person who would have been a community treasure a thousand years ago has to give up, has to go into some other line of work, since modern communications put him or her into daily competition with nothing but world's champions.... A moderately gifted person has to keep his or her gifts all bottled up until, in a manner of speaking, he or she gets drunk at a wedding and tap-dances on the coffee table like Fred Astaire or Ginger Rogers. We have a name for him or her. We call him or her an "exhibitionist." How do we reward such an exhibitionist? We say to him or her the next morning, "Wow! Were you ever drunk last night!"
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
8. "Of course, supernatural acts are what miracles are all about. They are, after all, precisely those things that circumvent the laws of nature. A god who can create the laws of nature can presumably also circumvent them at will. Although why they would have been circumvented so liberally thousands of years ago, before the invention of modern communication instruments that could have recorded them, and not today, is still something to wonder about."
Author: Lawrence M. Krauss
9. "Whenever you're out of town, no matter modern communications, you feel a little bit out of touch."
Author: Richard Armitage
10. "TIZIANO : Le modèle occidental a désormais été accepté par tous. Il est arrivé jusqu'en Chine, en Asie du Sud-Est, à Singapour, dans toute l'Indochine ; seul le Laos survit en quelque sorte. C'est le thème sur lequel je reviens sans cesse dans "Un devin m'a dit" : le joyeux suicide des pays d'Asie décidés à suivre un modèle de développement de type occidental, et prêts à renoncer à leur propre modèle de développement.FOLCO : Pourquoi ?TIZIANO : C'est simple. Parce qu'ils pensent que c'est le seul moyen. Nous leur avons vendu le christianisme, le colonialisme, toutes ces salades ; et, pour finir, nous leur avons vendu l'idée selon laquelle il ne peut y avoir qu'un seul type de modernité, la nôtre. Alors, ce modèle s'est exporté grâce aux moyens de communication de masse comme la télévision, et il s'est imposé dans toute l'Asie. (p. 300-301)"
Author: Tiziano Terzani
11. "Comics deal with two fundamental communicating devices: words and images. Admittedly this is an arbitrary separation. But, since in the modern world of communication they are treated as independent disciplines, it seems valid. Actually, the are derivatives of a single origin and in the skillful employment of words and images lies the expressive potential of the medium."
Author: Will Eisner
12. "In seminary he had been taught that God had completely stopped any overt communication with moderns, preferring to have them only listen to and follow sacred Scripture, properly interpreted, of course. God's voice had been reduced to paper, and even that paper had to be moderated and deciphered by the proper authorities and intellects. It seemed that direct communication with God was something exclusively for the ancients and uncivilized, while educated Westerner's access to God was mediated and controlled by the intelligentsia. Nobody wanted God in a box, just in a book."
Author: Wm. Paul Young
