Famous quotes containing the word accessible:

    The Sage of Toronto ... spent several decades marveling at the numerous freedoms created by a “global village” instantly and effortlessly accessible to all. Villages, unlike towns, have always been ruled by conformism, isolation, petty surveillance, boredom and repetitive malicious gossip about the same families. Which is a precise enough description of the global spectacle’s present vulgarity.
    Guy Debord (b. 1931)

    When he has seen, that it is not his, nor any man’s, but it is the soul which made the world, and that it is all accessible to him, he will know that he, as its minister, may rightfully hold all things subordinate and answerable to it.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    ...ordinary experience has to be made extraordinary in order to become accessible to reflection.
    Shoshana Zuboff (b. 1951)
