Famous quotes containing the word renovation:

    Postmodernity is the simultaneity of the destruction of earlier values and their reconstruction. It is renovation within ruination.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    Forgetfulness is necessary to remembrance. Ideas are retained by renovation of that impression which time is always wearing away, and which new images are striving to obliterate. If useless thoughts could be expelled from the mind, all the valuable parts of our knowledge would more frequently recur, and every recurrence would reinstate them in their former place.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
