„In those former times we lived. Now we hardly live any more, since we have lived. They who we were are dead, for we are here.“

—  Henri Barbusse French novelist 1873 - 1935

Light (1919), Ch. XIX - Ghosts

Her glances come to me, but they do not join again the two surviving voids that we are; her look does not wipe out our widowhood, nor change anything.

„We live in the age of idols. The pagan past, never dead, flames again in our mystic hierarchies of stardom.“

—  Camille Paglia American writer 1947

As quoted in "Babylon Nights : A David Spandau Novel" (2010) by Daniel Depp
Kontext: Popular culture is the new Babylon, into which so much art and intellect now flow. It is our imperial sex theater, supreme temple of the western eye. We live in the age of idols. The pagan past, never dead, flames again in our mystic hierarchies of stardom.
