Famous quotes containing the words electric and/or chain:

    The family circle has widened. The worldpool of information fathered by the electric media—movies, Telstar, flight—far surpasses any possible influence mom and dad can now bring to bear. Character no longer is shaped by only two earnest, fumbling experts. Now all the world’s a sage.
    Marshall McLuhan (1911–1980)

    Loyalty to petrified opinions never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul in this world—and never will.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
