entertainment

It’s funny, because even though they’re rattling on about the Games, it’s all about where they were or what they were doing or how they felt when a specific event occurred… Everything is about them, not the dying boys and girls in the arena.

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

What must it be like, I wonder, to live in a world where food appears at the press of a button? How would I spend the hours I now commit to combing the woods for sustenance if it were so easy to come by? What do they do all day, these people in the Capitol, besides decorating their bodies and waiting around for a new shipment of tributes to rill in and die for their entertainment?

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Television is a passivity.

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

‘Lost’ holds a very special place in people’s hearts and I wouldn’t presume to say that ‘FlashForward’ will replace ‘Lost.’ I think it provides a lot of the same adrenaline and fascination and entertainment. It will help ease the pain of losing ‘Lost!’ I think it will appeal to the very same audience.

Sonya Walger

People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

George Carlin

I wouldn’t tell you anything about anybody I cared about because it becomes entertainment for other people, and it sort of just cheapens everything in your life. I would never tell you if I was dating anybody.

Kristen Stewart

Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.

Stephen King

It’s a fascinating story to adapt and essentially it’s a great opportunity to entertain and provoke conversation.

Ron Howard

Big Brother isn’t watching. He’s singing and dancing. He’s pulling rabbits out of a hat. Big Brother’s busy holding your attention every moment you’re awake. He’s making sure you’re always distracted. He’s making sure you’re fully absorbed.
