„These creators, makers of the new, can never become obsolete, for in the arts there is no correct answer.“

—  Daniel J. Boorstin
Context: These creators, makers of the new, can never become obsolete, for in the arts there is no correct answer. The story of discoverers could be told in simple chronological order, since the latest science replaces what went before. But the arts are another story — a story of infinite addition. We must find order in the random flexings of the imagination. The Creators: A History of Heroes of the Imagination (1992) (Vintage edition, 1993, ), Preface, p. XV.

„We suffer primarily not from our vices or our weaknesses, but from our illusions.“

—  Daniel J. Boorstin
Context: We suffer primarily not from our vices or our weaknesses, but from our illusions. We are haunted, not by reality, but by those images we have put in their place. Preface
