"At night, before we'd go to sleep, Jack liked to play some records; and the song he loved most came at the very end of this record. The lines he loved to hear were: 'Don't let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment that was known as Camelot.' … There'll never be another Camelot again."
— Jacqueline Kennedy (1929-1994) Quoted by Theodore H. White in "For President Kennedy An Epilogue," Life magazine (December 6, 1963)

"All media work us over completely. They are so pervasive in their personal, political, economic, aesthetic, psychological, moral, ethical, and social consequences that they leave no part of us untouched, unaffected, unaltered. The medium is the massage. Any understanding of social and cultural change is impossible without a knowledge of the way media work as environments."
— Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980) The Medium is the Massage, page 26 (1967)

"Hitherto the nude has always been represented in poses which presuppose an audience; but these women of mine are honest, simple folk, unconcerned by any other interests than those involved in their physical condition. Here is another; she is washing her feet. It is as if you looked through a key-hole."
— Edgar Degas (1834-1917) Quoted by George Moore in "Degas: The Painter of Modern Life," The Magazine of Art (October 1890)
