„Media are means of extending and enlarging our organic sense lives into our environment“

—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: Media are means of extending and enlarging our organic sense lives into our environment. "The Care and Feeding of Communication Innovation", Dinner Address to Conference on 8 mm Sound Film and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University, 8 November 1961

„There is nothing willful or arbitrary about the Innis mode of expression.“

—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: There is nothing willful or arbitrary about the Innis mode of expression. Were it to be translated into perspective prose, it would not only require huge space, but the insight into the modes of interplay among forms of organisation would also be lost. Innis sacrificed point of view and prestige to his sense of the urgent need for insight. A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding. As Innis got more insight he abandoned any mere point of view in his presentation of knowledge. When he interrelates the development of the steam press with 'the consolidation of the vernaculars' and the rise of nationalism and revolution he is not reporting anybody's point of view, least of all his own. He is setting up a mosaic configuration or galaxy for insight … Innis makes no effort to "spell out" the interrelations between the components in his galaxy. He offers no consumer packages in his later work, but only do-it-yourself kits... p. 216; this paragraph was quoted as "context (0) - THE INNIS MODE" by John Brunner, the epigraph or first chapter in his novel Stand on Zanzibar (1968)

„I do not say whether it is a good or bad thing. To do so would be meaningless and arrogant.“

—  Marshall McLuhan

I do not say whether it is a good or bad thing. To do so would be meaningless and arrogant. Letter to Robert Fulford, 1964. Letters of Marshall McLuhan (1987), p. 300
