Famous quotes containing the words television, science and/or fiction:
“It is not heroin or cocaine that makes one an addict, it is the need to escape from a harsh reality. There are more television addicts, more baseball and football addicts, more movie addicts, and certainly more alcohol addicts in this country than there are narcotics addicts.”
—Shirley Chisholm (b. 1924)
“The natural historian is not a fisherman who prays for cloudy days and good luck merely; but as fishing has been styled a contemplative mans recreation, introducing him profitably to woods and water, so the fruit of the naturalists observations is not in new genera or species, but in new contemplations still, and science is only a more contemplative mans recreation.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“... any fiction ... is bound to be transposed autobiography.”
—Elizabeth Bowen (18991973)
