Actually, I Lied

Here’s another quote, which (ironically enough) relates to the Orson Welles quote below and which I found transcribed here.

“We haven’t had a television in our house in America for thirty years. And I used to think, ‘O dear, I’m going to raise these boys and they’re going to be “out of it”’, and yet I was choosing to take that risk because of mainly time and banality. I wasn’t worried about sex and violence. I mean, who cares about sex and violence? The bible is full of it. I care about the silliness of it all, and dragging the soul down into such small empty insignificant junk that fills that screen everyday. How can anybody have a capacity for glory and greatness and magnificence and chivalry and beauty?” (John Piper)
