—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: The global village is a place of very arduous interfaces and very abrasive situations.

„Only puny secrets need protection. Big secrets are protected by public incredulity.“

—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: Only puny secrets need protection. Big secrets are protected by public incredulity. You can actually dissipate a situation by giving it maximal coverage. As to alarming people, that's done by rumours, not by coverage. (p. 92)

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

—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: My main theme is the extension of the nervous system in the electric age, and thus, the complete break with five thousand years of mechanical technology. This I state over and over again. 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

„Typography is not only a technology but is in itself a natural resource or staple, like cotton or timber or radio; and, like any staple, it shapes not only private sense ratios but also patterns of communal interdependence.“

—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: Typography is not only a technology but is in itself a natural resource or staple, like cotton or timber or radio; and, like any staple, it shapes not only private sense ratios but also patterns of communal interdependence. (p. 186)

„The young today cannot follow narrative but they are alert to drama. They cannot bear description but they love landscape and action“

—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: The young today cannot follow narrative but they are alert to drama. They cannot bear description but they love landscape and action. Letter to Harold Adam Innis (14 March 1951), published in Essential McLuhan (1995), edited by Eric McLuhan and Frank Zingrone, p. 74

„The subliminal depths of radio are charged with the resonating echoes of tribal horns and antique drums. This is inherent in the very nature of this medium, with its power to turn the psyche and society into a single echo chamber.“

—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: Radio affects most intimately, person-to-person, offering a world of unspoken communication between writer-speaker and the listener. That is the immediate aspect of radio. A private experience. The subliminal depths of radio are charged with the resonating echoes of tribal horns and antique drums. This is inherent in the very nature of this medium, with its power to turn the psyche and society into a single echo chamber. (p. 261)

„As Innis got more insight he abandoned any mere point of view in his presentation of knowledge.“

—  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)

„In antiquity and the Middle Ages reading was necessarily reading aloud.“

—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: In antiquity and the Middle Ages reading was necessarily reading aloud. (p. 94)

„Everybody tends to merge his identity with other people at the speed of light“

—  Marshall McLuhan
Context: Everybody tends to merge his identity with other people at the speed of light. It's called being mass man.
