Famous quotes containing the words agency and/or space:

    It is possible that the telephone has been responsible for more business inefficiency than any other agency except laudanum.... In the old days when you wanted to get in touch with a man you wrote a note, sprinkled it with sand, and gave it to a man on horseback. It probably was delivered within half an hour, depending on how big a lunch the horse had had. But in these busy days of rush-rush-rush, it is sometimes a week before you can catch your man on the telephone.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    As photographs give people an imaginary possession of a past that is unreal, they also help people to take possession of space in which they are insecure.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
