Weekend Wise Words

Be Smart! Be Brilliant!

On the topic of Entertainment....

Anyone who tries to make a distinction between education and entertainment doesn't know the first thing about either.  - Media Guru, Marshall McLuhan

Art is moral passion married to entertainment. Moral passion without entertainment is propaganda, and entertainment without moral passion is television. - American writer, Rita Mae Brown

Entertainment today constantly emphasises the message that things are wonderful the way they are. But there is another kind of cinema, which says that change is possible and necessary and it's up to you. - Filmmaker and documentarian, Wim Wenders

Except here it's more power, more energy, younger and also in Europe it's still not only entertainment. Theater or films are looked at as a moral institution. That's why maybe they're so poetic. Here it's clear entertainment. - Actor, Maximilian Schell

I believe entertainment can aspire to be art, and can become art, but if you set out to make art you're an idiot.
- Comedian, Actor, Steve Martin

I think the Internet's been a tremendous tool in terms of breaking down the power structure of information and entertainment, particularly at a time when so much information and entertainment were in the hands of so few people, with multinationals owning everything. - Actor, Comedian, "Kids in the Hall" Almun, Dave Foley

It's not an anti-sex trip. Like, we're taking sex, which is probably another half of American entertainment, sex and violence, and we're projecting it, and we're saying this is the way everything is right now. - Musician, Actor, Alice Cooper

Maybe entertainment is not supposed to be reality. - Comedian, Actor, Victoria Jackson

Have a great weekend!
