PRESS
[ Also see Authorship Censorship Journalism News Pen Printing Publicity Publishing Writing ]

The press is like a woman: sublime when it lies, it will not let go until it has forced you to believe it. The public, like a foolish husband, always succumbs.
      - Honore de Balzac

The productions of the press, fast as steam can make and carry them, go abroad through all the land, silent as snowflakes, but potent as thunder. It is an additional tongue of steam and lightning, by which a man speaks his first thought, his instant argument or grievance, to millions in a day.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

The liberty of the press is the true measure of all other liberty; for all freedom without this must be merely nominal.
      - Paul Chatfield (a/k/a Horace Smith)

The press is the foe of rhetoric, but the friend of reason.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

In the long, fierce struggle for freedom of opinion, the press, like the Church, counted its martyrs by thousands.
      - James Abram Garfield

Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.
      - Joseph Goebbels

It is, however, an evil for which there is no remedy, our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.
      - Thomas Jefferson

The liberty of the press is a blessing when we are inclined to write against others, and a calamity when we find ourselves overborne by the multitude of our assailants.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Let it be impressed upon your minds, let it be instilled into your children, that the liberty of the press is the palladium of all the civil, political, and religious rights.
      - Junius (pseudonym, possibly of Sir Philip Francis)

When the press is the echo of sages and reformers, it works well; when it !s the echo of turbulent cynics, it merely feeds political excitement.
      - Alphonse de Lamartine

The country is not priest-ridded, but press-ridden.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

What gunpowder did for war, the printing-press has done for the mind; and the statesman is no longer clad in the steel of special education, but every reading man is his judge.
      - Wendell Phillips

The Reformation was cradled in the printing-press, and established by no other instrument.
      - Agnes Strickland

The invention of printing added a new element of power to the race. From that hour, in a most especial sense, the brain and not the arm, the thinker and not the soldier, books and not kings, were to rule the world; and weapons, forged in the mind, keen-edged and brighter than the sunbeam, were to supplant the sword and the battle-axe.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple
