Famous quotes containing the words hospital and/or state:

    Radio put technology into storytelling and made it sick. TV killed it. Then you were locked into somebody else’s sighting of that story. You no longer had the benefit of making that picture for yourself, using your imagination. Storytelling brings back that humanness that we have lost with TV. You talk to children and they don’t hear you. They are television addicts. Mamas bring them home from the hospital and drag them up in front of the set and the great stare-out begins.
    Jackie Torrence (b. 1944)

    A party of order or stability, and a party of progress or reform, are both necessary elements of a healthy state of political life.
    John Stuart Mill (1806–1873)
