Famous quotes containing the words center, operations, joint and/or space:

    Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
    Thomas Merton (1915–1968)

    A sociosphere of contact, control, persuasion and dissuasion, of exhibitions of inhibitions in massive or homeopathic doses...: this is obscenity. All structures turned inside out and exhibited, all operations rendered visible. In America this goes all the way from the bewildering network of aerial telephone and electric wires ... to the concrete multiplication of all the bodily functions in the home, the litany of ingredients on the tiniest can of food, the exhibition of income or IQ.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    Let me approach at least, and touch thy hand.
    [Samson:] Not for thy life, lest fierce remembrance wake
    My sudden rage to tear thee joint by joint.
    At distance I forgive thee, go with that;
    Bewail thy falsehood, and the pious works
    It hath brought forth to make thee memorable
    Among illustrious women, faithful wives:
    Cherish thy hast’n’d widowhood with the gold
    Of Matrimonial treason: so farewel.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    To play is nothing but the imitative substitution of a pleasurable, superfluous and voluntary action for a serious, necessary, imperative and difficult one. At the cradle of play as well as of artistic activity there stood leisure, tedium entailed by increased spiritual mobility, a horror vacui, the need of letting forms no longer imprisoned move freely, of filling empty time with sequences of notes, empty space with sequences of form.
    Max J. Friedländer (1867–1958)
