    We are becoming like cats, slyly parasitic, enjoying an indifferent domesticity. Nice and snug in “the social” our historic passions have withdrawn into the glow of an artificial cosiness, and our half-closed eyes now seek little other than the peaceful parade of television pictures.
    Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)

    Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    And of the other things death is a new office building filled with modern furniture,
    A wise thing, but which has no purpose for us.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    We must be generously willing to leave for a time the narrow boundaries in which our individual lives are passed ... In this fresh, breezy atmosphere ... we will be surprised to find that many of our familiar old conventional truths look very queer indeed in some of the sudden side lights thrown upon them.
    —Bertha Honore Potter Palmer (1849–1918)

    The veils are drawn about the world,
    Sara Teasdale (1884–1933)

    Shirley MacLaine (b. 1934)
