Pictures Television

Famous quotes containing the words pictures and/or television:

    I have no other pictures of the world apart from those which express evanescence, and callousness, vanity and anger, emptiness, or hideous useless hate. Everything has merely confirmed what I had seen and understood in my childhood: futile and sordid fits of rage, cries suddenly blanketed by the silence, shadows swallowed up for ever by the night.
    Eugène Ionesco (b. 1912)

    The television critic, whatever his pretensions, does not labour in the same vineyard as those he criticizes; his grapes are all sour.
    Frederic Raphael (b. 1931)
