We all look for happiness, but without knowing where to find it: like drunkards who look for their house, knowing dimly that they have one.
Television is like the invention of indoor plumbing. It didn’t change people’s habits. It just kept them inside the house.
Some keep the Sabbath going to Church —
I keep it, staying at Home —
With a Bobolink for a Chorister —
And an Orchard, for a Dome —
One of television’s great contributions is that it brought murder back into the home, where it belongs.
I never thought I’d have children; I never thought I’d be in love, I never thought I’d meet the right person. Having come from a broken home – you kind of accept that certain things feel like a fairy tale, and you just don’t look for them.
Every man who has shown the world the way to beauty, to true culture, has been a rebel, a ‘universal’ without patriotism, without home who has found his people everywhere.
