Famous quotes containing the word television:

    Never before has a generation of parents faced such awesome competition with the mass media for their children’s attention. While parents tout the virtues of premarital virginity, drug-free living, nonviolent resolution of social conflict, or character over physical appearance, their values are daily challenged by television soaps, rock music lyrics, tabloid headlines, and movie scenes extolling the importance of physical appearance and conformity.
    Marianne E. Neifert (20th century)

    Addison DeWitt: Your next move, it seems to me, should be toward television.
    Miss Caswell: Tell me this. Do they have auditions for television?
    Addison DeWitt: That’s all television is, my dear. Nothing but auditions.
    Joseph L. Mankiewicz (1909–1993)

    Photographs may be more memorable than moving images because they are a neat slice of time, not a flow. Television is a stream of underselected images, each of which cancels its predecessor. Each still photograph is a privileged moment, turned into a slim object that one can keep and look at again.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)
