Here are a few to get you started.  Appropriately enough the first two are credited to Marshall McLuhan

 

When he published Understanding Media in 1964, Marshall McLuhan was disturbed about mankind’s shuffling toward the twenty-first century in the shackles of nineteenth century perceptions. He might be no less disturbed today. And he would continue to issue the challenge that confronts the reader at every page of his writings to cast off those shackles.”

In the Land of the Blind, the one-eyed man is a hallucinating idiot... for he sees what no one else does; things that, to everyone else, are not there

-Marshall McLuhan

 

Whence did the wond'rous mystic art arise, / Of painting SPEECH, and speaking to the eyes? / That we by tracing magic lines are taught, / How to embody, and to colour THOUGHT?” 
― Marshall McLuhan, The Medium is the Massage
