Entertainment Quotes

You can increase your brain power three to fivefold simply by laughing and having fun before working on a problem.

Doug Hall

Americans don't spend billions for entertainment. They spend it in search of entertainment.

Unknown

Every country gets the circus it deserves. Spain gets bullfights. Italy gets the Catholic Church. America gets Hollywood.

Erica Jong

I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained.

Walt Disney

Anyone who tries to make a distinction between education and entertainment doesn't know the first thing about either.

Marshall McLuhan

Cities force growth and make people talkative and entertaining, but they also make them artificial.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nothing contributes to the entertainment of the reader more, than the change of times and the vicissitudes of fortune.

Cicero

Leisure may prove to be a curse rather than a blessing, unless education teaches a flippant world that leisure is not a synonym for entertainment.

William L. Bogan

My advice to gardeners is to believe what you see as temporal entertainment; a gift from nature. Do not pass on your interpretation as gospel. Do not seek interpretation from others.

Thomas Clothier

Our growing ability to eliminate the slow-moving aspects of entertainment and go hopping from one peak to another is not without cost. Stand-up comics, movie-makers and others who earn their living entertaining no longer "waste" time with setups and plot development, lest we reach for the remote and click them off our screen. The result is a loss of subtlety, anticipation and nuance and, in the process, a coarsening of our discourse.

William Raspberry

Much of junk culture has a core of crisis shoot-outs, conflagrations, bodies weltering in blood, naked embracers or rapist-stranglers. The sounds of junk culture are heard over a ground bass of extremism. Our entertainments swarm with specters of world crisis. Nothing moderate can have any claim to our attention.

Saul Bellow

The Phantom Menace is not a masterpiece, but it's an example of how imagination, craftsmanship, and technological bravura can fashion superior entertainment out of something that is far from flawless.

James Berardinelli

Looking back at Batman from a distance after all the hype has dried up and the franchise has at least temporarily been abandoned it's easy to see the movie for what it is: a moderately diverting motion picture that should have been shorter and better paced. There are a lot of things wrong with Batman, but it still makes for decent entertainment in the fine tradition of the typical low-intelligence summer movie. The best thing that can be said about Batman is that it led to Batman Returns, which was a far superior effort.

James Berardinelli

It's mind-boggling to consider that movies this bad are actually committed to film. The poor quality of The Pest in almost every category humor, intelligence, creativity, and just plain entertainment value ranks it somewhere between a bad infomercial and a local cable newscast. Rarely do I consider the act of seeing a movie to be a chore, but this kind of experience is the exception.

James Berardinelli

This day showed us that we are all completely voyeurs greedy for thrilling entertainment no matter if this is real or not.

Uwe Boll
