A Quote by Judith Crist on accuracy and entertainment

In this lovely land of corrugated cartons and plastic bags, we want our entertainment packaged neatly . . . an attractive label on the outside, a complete and accurate detailing of contents . . . no loose ends, no odd parts, nothing left out.

A Quote by Joseph Addison on art, entertainment, exercise, improvement, science, and study

Our delight in any particular study, art, or science rises and improves in proportion to the application which we bestow upon it. Thus, what was at first an exercise becomes at length an entertainment.

A Quote by John Cage on culture, entertainment, listening, and music

It is better to make a piece of music than to perform one, better to perform one than to listen to one, better to listen to one than to misuse it as a means of distraction, entertainment, or acquisition of "culture."

A Quote by John Bryant on clothes, cruelty, day, dreams, earth, entertainment, existence, food, health, peace, and world

I dream of a world where Man is at peace, not only with himself, but also with all the other creatures of the Earth. I long for a day when Man rejects the exploitation of other species for food, clothing, health, entertainment or even companionship - for such a day will mean that cruelty no longer exists and it is cruelty which dominates my every conscious moment.

A Quote by Edward Grimsley on children, cinema, cleverness, entertainment, evil, government, language, people, prayer, television, vulgarity, and wonder

People who knowingly select movies and television programs featuring foul language deserve exactly what they get. . . . Many people will wonder why governments that are clever enough to devise ways to shield children from the dangers of prayer in the classroom should not be clever enough to shield them from the evils of vulgarity in entertainment.

When there are starving people in the world, it seems wrong that so many of us Americans eat as much for entertainment as for nourishment.
