Famous quotes containing the words united states, films, united, number-one, box, list, states and/or office:

    The real charm of the United States is that it is the only comic country ever heard of.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    Television does not dominate or insist, as movies do. It is not sensational, but taken for granted. Insistence would destroy it, for its message is so dire that it relies on being the background drone that counters silence. For most of us, it is something turned on and off as we would the light. It is a service, not a luxury or a thing of choice.
    David Thomson, U.S. film historian. America in the Dark: The Impact of Hollywood Films on American Culture, ch. 8, William Morrow (1977)

    The United States is unusual among the industrial democracies in the rigidity of the system of ideological control—”indoctrination” we might say—exercised through the mass media.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)

    I’m your number-one fan.
    William Goldman (b. 1931)

    I hate love. Hate being in love. I never want it to happen to me again.
    —Muriel Box (b. 1905)

    Thirty—the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    I cannot say what poetry is; I know that our sufferings and our concentrated joy, our states of plunging far and dark and turning to come back to the world—so that the moment of intense turning seems still and universal—all are here, in a music like the music of our time, like the hero and like the anonymous forgotten; and there is an exchange here in which our lives are met, and created.
    Muriel Rukeyser (1913–1980)

    Go; and if that word have not quite killed thee,
    Ease me with death by bidding me got too.
    Oh, if it have, let my word work on me,
    And a just office on a murderer do.
    Except it be too late to kill me so,
    Being double dead: going, and bidding go.
    John Donne (1572–1631)
