Quotes

"I wrote it in a single afternoon and really loved the effect that it had," said Parry on Friday as Arcade Fire prepared to perform in Toronto. "I spent the next few years listening to that, over and over again and just loving it and thinking 'oh, I've got to get back to this, this idea feels like it has so much potential in it.'"
Ingram said, "While 87 per cent knowing that the earth goes around the sun is pretty good, that still leaves 13 per cent of Canadians that haven't absorbed the scientific knowledge of several centuries ago"
..." He added, "I think it's important in a way to try and maintain a science culture regardless of what government happens to be in power."
"By 13 I had saved enough of my earnings from various jobs to purchase a good camera. I used that camera for more than 25 years," Miller says. "Photography is a conflicted, quixotic medium. It intersects with every human activity. Whether or not we can see them, light transmits images. In photography, as with human sight, light joins the inside to the outside. This dichotomy is perpetually fascinating."
