Georges Pompidou quotes

  • Paintings! They're like TV, but they don't move.

  • The best technology is aimed far enough in the future that it stands out, but close enough to the present that it blends in.

  • I interned at Miramax and subsequently at Paramount because I was really curious about the future of entertainment - how were we going to get films online? While the inspiration for Box didn't come from that experience directly, it was very obvious that bigger businesses had a lot of slow processes and cumbersome technology.

  • It's true that humanity has seen a succession of crises, wars and atrocities, but this negative side is offset by advances in technology and cultural exchanges.

  • I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness.

  • Men and women belong to different species and communications between them is still in its infancy.

  • Sisterhood cannot be assumed on the basis of gender; it must be forged in concrete historical and political practice and analysis

  • Suspense is torture ... but delightful--or there'd be no gambling in the world.

  • As words are not the things we speak about, and structure is the only link between them, structure becomes the only content of knowledge. If we gamble on verbal structures that have no observable empirical structures, such gambling can never give us any structural information about the world. Therefore such verbal structures are structurally obsolete, and if we believe in them, they induce delusions or other semantic disturbances.

  • And it´s so different for a lot of people I´ve known. One partner doesn´t love the other enough to stop drinking, or gambling, or running around with other women. One is the giver and one is the taker. The giver wishes the taker would stop.
