Daniel J. Boorstin (23 Quotations)
:: 1914-, American Historian
We need not be theologians to see that we have shifted responsibility for making the world interesting from God to the newspaperman.
~ Daniel J. Boorstin - [Journalism and Journalists]
We read advertisements to discover and enlarge our desires. We are always ready -- even eager -- to discover, from the announcement of a new product, what we have all along wanted without really knowing it.
~ Daniel J. Boorstin - [Advertising]
What preoccupies us, then, is not God as a fact of nature, but as a fabrication useful for a God-fearing society. God himself becomes not a power but an image.
~ Daniel J. Boorstin - [God]
