Famous quotes containing the words american and/or printing:

    Other centuries had their driving forces. What will ours have been when men look far back to it one day? Maybe it won’t be the American Century, after all. Or the Russian Century or the Atomic Century. Wouldn’t it be wonderful, Phil, if it turned out to be everybody’s century, when people all over the world—free people—found a way to live together? I’d like to be around to see some of that, even the beginning.
    Moss Hart (1904–1961)

    The printing press was at first mistaken for an engine of immortality by everybody except Shakespeare.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)
