A Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin on desires

in

We read advertisements to discover and enlarge our desires. We are always ready - even eager -- to discover, from the announcement of a new product, what we have all along wanted without really knowing it.

A Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin on america, ancestry, love, nations, and suffering

As individuals and as a nation, we now suffer from social narcissism. The beloved Echo of our ancestors, the virgin America, has been abandoned. We have fallen in love with our own image, with images of our making, which turn out to be images of ourselves.
