Favorite quotes

Quote 1:

People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life... I think that what we're really seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our innermost being and reality, so that we can actually feel the rapture of being alive.
Joseph Campbell

Quote 2
Although cultural studies as a project is open-ended, it can’t be simply pluralist in that way. . . . Yes, it is a project that is always open to that which it doesn’t yet know, to that which it can’t yet name. But it does have some will to connect: it does have some stake in the choices it makes. It does matter whether cultural studies is this or that. . . . It is a serious enterprise, or project, and that is inscribed in what is sometimes called the “political” aspect of cultural studies. Not that there’s one politics already inscribed in it. But there is something AT STAKE in cultural studies, in a way that I think, and hope, is not exactly true of many other very important intellectual and critical practices.

Stuart Hall
