[Connection" Is The Triumphal Cry These Days. Connection Has Made People Arrogant, Impatient, Hasty, And Presumptuous. ...I Don't Doubt That Instant Communication Has Been Good For Business, Even For The Publishing Business, But It Has Done Nothing For Literature, And Might Even Have Harmed It. In Many Ways Connection Has Been Disastrous. We Have Confused Information (of Which There Is Too Much) With Ideas (of Which There Are Too Few). I Found Out Much More About The World And Myself By Being Unconnected.]

Quotes About Movie Repetition

"An extraterrestrial being, newly arrived on Earth - scrutinizing what we mainly present to our children in television, radio, movies, newspapers, magazines, the comics, and many books - might easily conclude that we are intent on teaching them murder, rape, cruelty, superstition, credulity, and consumerism. We keep at it, and through constant repetition many of them finally get it. What kind of society could we create if, instead, we drummed into them science and a sense of hope?" - Author: Carl Sagan

Quotes About Narcissus And Echo

"He climbed up behind Hazel. Arion took off across the water, the nymphs screaming behind them, and Narcissus shouting, "Bring me back! Bring me back!" As Arion raced towards the Argo II, Leo remembered what Nemesis had said about Echo and Narcissus: Perhaps theyll teach you a lesson. Leo had thought shed meant Narcissus, but now he wondered if the real lesson for him was Echo--invisible to her brethren, cursed to love someone who didnt care for her. A seventh wheel. He tried to shake that thought. He clung to the sheet of bronze like a shield. He was determined never to forget Echos face. She deserved at least one person who saw her and knew how good she was. Leo closed his eyes, but the memory of her smile was already fading." - Author: Rick Riordan
