Famous quotes containing the words circuit and/or lecture:
“We are all hostages, and we are all terrorists. This circuit has replaced that other one of masters and slaves, the dominating and the dominated, the exploiters and the exploited.... It is worse than the one it replaces, but at least it liberates us from liberal nostalgia and the ruses of history.”
—Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
“I find quite as much material for a lecture in those points wherein I have failed, as in those wherein I have been moderately successful.”
—Abraham Lincoln (18091865)
