Famous quotes containing the words artistic and/or world:
“Persons grouped around a fire or candle for warmth or light are less able to pursue independent thoughts, or even tasks, than people supplied with electric light. In the same way, the social and educational patterns latent in automation are those of self- employment and artistic autonomy.”
—Marshall McLuhan (19111980)
“Sabbath. A weekly festival having its origin in the fact that God made the world in six days and was arrested on the seventh.”
