„This is what makes packaged opinion so attractive.“

—  Saul Bellow

"There Is Simply Too Much to Think About" (1992), pp. 173-174
It All Adds Up (1994)
Contexto: There is simply too much to think about. It is hopeless — too many kinds of special preparation are required. In electronics, in economics, in social analysis, in history, in psychology, in international politics, most of us are, given the oceanic proliferating complexity of things, paralyzed by the very suggestion that we assume responsibility for so much. This is what makes packaged opinion so attractive.

„Take our politicians: they're a bunch of yo-yos.“

—  Saul Bellow

As quoted in The Portable Curmudgeon (1987) by Jon Winokur, p. 219
General sources
Contexto: Take our politicians: they're a bunch of yo-yos. The presidency is now a cross between a popularity contest and a high school debate, with an encyclopedia of cliches.

„In the greatest confusion there is still an open channel to the soul.“

—  Saul Bellow

Foreword to The Closing of the American Mind by Allan Bloom (1987)
General sources
Contexto: In the greatest confusion there is still an open channel to the soul. It may be difficult to find because by midlife it is overgrown, and some of the wildest thickets that surround it grow out of what we describe as our education. But the channel is always there, and it is our business to keep it open, to have access to the deepest part of ourselves.

„Writers, poets, painters, musicians, philosophers, political thinkers, to name only a few of the categories affected, must woo their readers, viewers, listeners, from distraction.“

—  Saul Bellow

"The Distracted Public" (1990), p. 167
It All Adds Up (1994)
Contexto: Writers, poets, painters, musicians, philosophers, political thinkers, to name only a few of the categories affected, must woo their readers, viewers, listeners, from distraction. To this we must add, for simple realism demands it, that these same writers, painters, etc., are themselves the children of distraction. As such, they are peculiarly qualified to approach the distracted multitudes. They will have experienced the seductions as well as the destructiveness of the forces we have been considering here. This is the destructive element in which we do not need to be summoned to immerse ourselves, for we were born to it.
