Keyboard quotes by Kristin Armstrong
#1. Life is too sweet and too short to express our affection with just our thumbs. Touch is meant for more than a keyboard. #Quote by Kristin Armstrong
Keyboard quotes by Jodie Beau
#2. Writing things down with a pen is a lot faster and more therapeutic than trying to type something on a tiny touchscreen keyboard. #Quote by Jodie Beau
Keyboard quotes by Lin-Manuel Miranda
#3. I like to separate the music- and lyric-writing processes if I can. I'll sort of noodle around on my keyboard and my computer until I have a beat or a chord progression, I'll record it as a loop, export it to iTunes, then walk around with the loop and sort of talk to myself in the loop, and that's how I get the lyrics. #Quote by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Keyboard quotes by Midge Ure
#4. At the beginning of this album I discovered the computer and had great fun playing with the thing. And I realized that, not being a good keyboard player, I could write things in very small sections, give them a certain feel and mess about with bends on the keyboard. #Quote by Midge Ure
Keyboard quotes by Fetty Wap
#5. People make their life really hard. It was as simple as this: My parents went to church. My grandfather was a bishop. My mom sang in the choir, my dad played the keyboard, and my uncle played the drums. I was into playing the drums, so I played the drums a lot for my uncle, and it got to the point where I was pretty nice at playing the drums. And he let me play every Sunday so, to me, going to church was fun. #Quote by Fetty Wap
Keyboard quotes by Jess Walter
#6. My desk is an antique with bookshelves built into the side. I've turned the drawer over to hold a keyboard. We live in a 100-year-old house, and I work in an apartment above the carriage house. #Quote by Jess Walter
Keyboard quotes by Marcel Proust
#7. He knew that the very memory of the piano falsified still further the perspective in which he saw the elements of music, that the field open to the musician is not a miserable stave of seven notes, but an immeasurable keyboard (still almost entirely unknown) on which, here and there only, separated by the thick darkness of its unexplored tracts, some few among the millions of keys of tenderness, of passion, of courage, of serenity, which compose it, each one differing from all the rest as one universe differs from another, have been discovered by a few great artists who do us the service, when they awaken in us the emotion corresponding to the theme they have discovered, of showing us what richness, what variety lies hidden, unknown to us, in that vast, unfathomed and forbidding night of our soul which we take to be an impenetrable void. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Keyboard quotes by Emma Brockes
#8. In January 2006, Phantom of The Opera broke the record for the longest-running show in Broadway history, overtaking Cats and reminding us what real entertainment is about: candles, dry ice, big hair, and the sort of synthesized chord progressions only achieved by a collapse at the keyboard. #Quote by Emma Brockes
Keyboard quotes by Steve Wozniak
#9. What I was proud of was that I used very few parts to build a computer that could actually speak words on a screen and type words on a keyboard and run a programming language that could play games. And I did all this myself. #Quote by Steve Wozniak
Keyboard quotes by Jerry Seinfeld
#10. The truth is, the family is much more creatively nourishing because you're playing on a full keyboard. Whereas when you're single, you're just playing the upbeat jazzy tunes. #Quote by Jerry Seinfeld
Keyboard quotes by Stefan Themerson
#11. A page of a book is like a human face. Look at a page by Hemingway and compare it with Sterne and Marcel Proust. They are different typographical beings. But force upon them those ragged edges, and the influence of the author's style on the physical aspect of the page, their typographical physiognomy will disappear. No, unjustified setting is a sort of gleichschaltung [enforced conformity] through diversity, a very phoney diversity. Produced methodically by chance. For the comfort of the keyboard, and not for the comfort of the eye. #Quote by Stefan Themerson
Keyboard quotes by Rachel Caine
#12. He started to touch the mechanism under the keyboard,
then pulled his hand back with a snap.
"Ah," he said. "Must deactivate the security ... Turn around, please."
"Turn around, Claire. It's a secure password!"
"You have GOT to be kidding."
"Why ever would I joke about that? Please turn. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Keyboard quotes by John Carpenter
#13. I can play just about any keyboard but I can't read or write a note. #Quote by John Carpenter
Keyboard quotes by Donal Henahan
#14. The irrepressible spirit that made his playing seem like good conversation is the Rubinstein legacy for pianists, if they can pick up their heads from the keyboard long enough to claim it. #Quote by Donal Henahan
Keyboard quotes by John Burley
#15. Every day there are countless reasons why it's not a good day to write. Ignore those reasons and write anyway. Inspiration seldom visits a quiet keyboard. #Quote by John Burley
Keyboard quotes by Chris Pine
#16. You can be many miles away and press a button on a keyboard, and it can cause devastation. #Quote by Chris Pine
Keyboard quotes by Walter Isaacson
#17. When he went to PARC for his formal interview, Kay was asked what he hoped his great achievement there would be. "A personal computer," he answered. Asked what that was, he picked up a notebook-size portfolio, flipped open its cover, and said, "This will be a flat-panel display. There'll be a keyboard here on the bottom, and enough power to store your mail, files, music, artwork, and books. All in a package about this size and weighing a couple of pounds. That's what I'm talking about." His interviewer scratched his head and muttered to himself, "Yeah, right." But Kay got the job. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Keyboard quotes by Stephen King
#18. There were movies to go see at the Gem, which has long since been torn down; science fiction movies like Gog with Richard Egan and westerns with Audie Murphy (Teddy saw every movie Audie Murphy made at least three times; he believed Murphy was almost a god) and war movies with John Wayne. There were games and endless bolted meals, lawns to mow, places to run to, walls to pitch pennies against, people to clap you on the back. And now I sit here trying to look through an IBM keyboard and see that time, trying to recall the best and the worst of that green and brown summer, and I can almost feel the skinny, scabbed boy still buried in this advancing body and hear those sounds. But #Quote by Stephen King
Keyboard quotes by Jay Kay
#19. My place in Scotland is in the middle of nowhere, so you've just got a keyboard, guitar, a little drum machine and you know if you can work stuff out like that, if you can hammer out songs that sound good just with those three things and a voice, you're on your way. #Quote by Jay Kay
Keyboard quotes by Laura Z. Hobson
#20. He who could write so easily, who could spend a thousand words down along his plunging fingers on the green-rubber keyboard of his machine, had stumbled like a first-grader over this single paragraph. A dozen times he had begun it and written into it a naked desperation; a dozen times he had begun it and written into it the frosted mathematics of logic. Finally he'd written out quickly the sentences that kept cropping up in all the versions. Those must be, to whatever censor there was in him, the most acceptable ones. He sealed it without rereading it and went out to mail it. An hour later he despised himself for having sent it. #Quote by Laura Z. Hobson
Keyboard quotes by Callan McAuliffe
#21. I can play songs that I hear from a movie and just play it a few times on the keyboard. I will hit all the notes on the keyboard until I find the right key, and then I will play the rest of the song. #Quote by Callan McAuliffe
Keyboard quotes by Anonymous
#22. encounter a multitude of other agents. My keyboard, the words unfolding on the Microsoft Word interface, the books piled beside my computer, the flashing cursor, #Quote by Anonymous
Keyboard quotes by Brian Wilson
#23. The keyboard is my whole life. My life is centered around either sitting at my keyboard or driving my car. Those are the two most important things, more than anything else. Being at my keyboard, it's the happiest time for me. #Quote by Brian Wilson
Keyboard quotes by Clifford Stoll
#24. When I'm online, I'm alone in a room, tapping on a keyboard, staring at a cathode-ray tube. #Quote by Clifford Stoll
Keyboard quotes by Michael Eric Dyson
#25. Writing is an often-painful task that can feel like the death of one's past. Equally discomfiting is seeing one's present commitments to truths crumble once one begins to tap away at the keyboard or scar the page with ink. Writing demands a different sort of apprenticeship to ideas than does speaking. It beckons one to revisit over an extended, or at least delayed, period the same material and to revise what one thinks. Revision is reading again and again what one writes so that one can think again and again about what one wants to say and in turn determine if better and deeper things can be said. #Quote by Michael Eric Dyson
Keyboard quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#26. Every so often, I'll get an idea from a dream, but most of the time, ideas come to me while I'm toiling away at the keyboard just like every other writer. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Keyboard quotes by S. Jae-Jones
#27. And at the center of the room, a girl. A woman. She sits at the klavier with eyes closed, playing their song. Their story.
Her image flickers, wavers, a reflection seen on the edges of a candle flame. The shadows wriggle and writhe with curiosity, and with tremendous effort, the monster holds them back.
Please, he whispers. Please, let me have this one thing.
As he plays, the darkness recedes. From his skin, from his hair, the weight of the rams' horns on his head lightening. Color returns to the world and to his eyes, a mismatched blue and green as the monster remembers what it is to be a man.
He sits down on the bench beside her, begging her- beseeching her- to open her eyes and see him. Be with him. But she keeps her eyes closed, hands trembling on the keyboard.
She stirs. He sucks in a sharp breath and lifts his hand to stroke her cheek with fingers that are still mangled, broken, strange. His touch passes through her like a knife through smoke, yet she shivers as if she can feel the brush of his fingers in the dark places of her soul, her body, her heart. She is as insubstantial as mist, but he cannot resist the urge, the itch, to kiss. He closes his eyes and leans in close, imagining the silk of her skin against his lips.
They are met.
A gasp. His eyes fly open but hers are still closed. Her hand lifts to her mouth, as though the tingle of their unexpected caress still lingered there.
#Quote by S. Jae-Jones
Keyboard quotes by Henry Miller
#28. He it is, if any man today possesses the gift, who knows where to dissolve the human figure, who has the courage to sacrifice an harmonious line in order to detect rhythm and murmur of the blood, who takes light that has been refracted inside him and lets it flood the keyboard of color. Behind the minutiae, the chaos, the mockery of life, he detects the invisible pattern; he announces his discoveries in the metaphysical pigment of space. No searching formulae, no crucifixion of ideas, no compulsion other than to create. Even as the world goes to smash there is one man who remains at the core, who becomes more solidly fixed and anchored, more centrifugal as the process of dissolution quickens. #Quote by Henry Miller
Keyboard quotes by Scott Adams
#29. On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on the escape key. #Quote by Scott Adams
Keyboard quotes by Jo Nesbø
#30. And over the phone he could hear the ten legged insect already scrabbling across the keyboard! #Quote by Jo Nesbø
Keyboard quotes by Jason Landry
#31. The pen might be mightier than the sword, but the keyboard never runs out of ink. #Quote by Jason Landry
Keyboard quotes by Marisa Kanter
#32. I don't know what to say.

That's the problem with words. In my head, words are magic. My thoughts are eloquent and fierce. On the page, words are music. In the clicks of my keyboard, in the scratches of pencil meeting paper. In the beauty of the eraser, of the backspace key. On the page, the words in my head sing and dance with the precision of diction and the intricacies of rhythm.

Out loud? Words are the worst. #Quote by Marisa Kanter
Keyboard quotes by Marissa Meyer
#33. Keep your head in the clouds and your hands on the keyboard. #Quote by Marissa Meyer
Keyboard quotes by Diane Warren
#34. I like to start with an idea, but then again, I might be sitting at the keyboard, and just playing a bunch of chords that sound cool together, and something just inspires an idea from that. #Quote by Diane Warren
Keyboard quotes by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
#35. He crossed the stage, pushed the bench back and sat, hands resting on the keyboard cover. After a moment, he took off the cloth, and uncovered the keyboard. He rested his fingers on the keys, but didn't depress them, simply sitting there for a moment, in the dark and silent auditorium, and closed his eyes.
He belonged here. Not on a stage, but with a piano. It was the only place he felt alive. The groupies, the concerts, the strangely worshipful perks of fame, none of them made him feel complete like these moments alone did. #Quote by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
Keyboard quotes by S.J. Kincaid
#36. That's lucky?" Tom repeated bitterly. "Lucky now means 'worst case scenario ever,' then. That's great. Good to know."

"Sir," Blackburn corrected.

"You outrank me. You shouldn't call me 'sir.'"

"Raines, you'll address me as 'sir' or I will stick you back down in that cell next to the census device until 'sir' is the only word you remember."

Tom bristled. He'd never hated someone so much. "Sir, yes, sir. I'll use 'sir,' sir. Is that all, sir?"

"Oh, I'd say that's all. Get into the simulation with the others." Blackburn jabbed at his forearm keyboard. "It irritates me just looking at you."

Back at you, Tom thought. #Quote by S.J. Kincaid
Keyboard quotes by Matt Haig
#37. Sometimes things are a change for the better and the worse at the same time, like the internet. Or the electric keyboard. Or pre-chopped garlic. Or the theory of relativity. #Quote by Matt Haig
Keyboard quotes by Neil Gaiman
#38. This is how you do it: you sit down at the keyboard and you put one word after another until its done. It's that easy, and that hard. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Keyboard quotes by Sarah Beard
#39. My hands moved up and down the keyboard, summoning great waves of music, each one crested with sorrow, loneliness, and anger. Tides of emotion rose and fell, gradually finding their way down my arms and to the keys, becoming harmonies that filled and then dissipated into the air like mist. #Quote by Sarah Beard
Keyboard quotes by Brian Wilson
#40. My brother Carl taught me how to play bass. I'm a self-taught keyboard player, though - I figured out our harmonies at the piano. #Quote by Brian Wilson
Keyboard quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#41. But most of the time, with a contented resignation that comes normally to a man only at the end of a long and busy life, he sat before the keyboard and filled the air with his beloved Bach.
Perhaps he was deceiving himself, perhaps this was some merciful trick of the mind but now it seemed to Jan that this what he had always wished to do. His secret ambition had at last dared to emerge into the full light of consciousness.
Jan had always been a good pianist, and now he was the finest in the world. #Quote by Arthur C. Clarke
Keyboard quotes by Pharrell Williams
#42. I love playing. The keyboard is my journal. #Quote by Pharrell Williams
Keyboard quotes by Robert Patterson
#43. But with carefully chosen keyboard macros to activate it, Mass Copy is quick, convenient, and powerful. Most users who have mastered it depend heavily on it. That certainly includes me. #Quote by Robert Patterson
Keyboard quotes by Vashti Bunyan
#44. All the new songs have been written since the re-issue of Diamond Day. With my first royalties I got a Mac and a little mixer and a keyboard, figured out the basics of a music program, and gradually started to write and record the songs and the arrangements. #Quote by Vashti Bunyan
Keyboard quotes by Mark Zuckerberg
#45. When you think about it, there's no way to input things into a computer. It's all ... the holes only go out, right? Like you can plug a keyboard or a mouse in but that's a trick because the computer thinks the inputs are outputs. That's a programmer trick, basically magic. The key to the future is to make holes that go in too. #Quote by Mark Zuckerberg
Keyboard quotes by Iain Banks
#46. I deliberately keep myself apart from a lot of stuff; I don't Tweet, I don't do Facebook, I don't blog, and that's largely because I spend my working life staring at a screen and hitting a keyboard, I am trying to cut down on that, not increase it. #Quote by Iain Banks
Keyboard quotes by Nick Offerman
#47. Believe me, I understand how fiendishly the Internet can tempt a body to indulge in diversion from one's responsibilities, more commonly known as iniquity. Idle hands are never the devil's workshop more than when those recumbent mitts are resting upon a computer keyboard. #Quote by Nick Offerman
Keyboard quotes by Jess Walter
#48. My writing regimen is not very regimented. I tend to be a binge writer, working sometimes in the morning and sometimes all night. When I get going I like to hunch over the keyboard until I feel totally played out. #Quote by Jess Walter
Keyboard quotes by Thomas Harris
#49. He looked up and saw her and his breath stopped in his throat. His hands stopped too, still spread above the keyboard. Harpsichord notes do not carry, and in the sudden quiet of the drawing room they both heard him take his next breath. #Quote by Thomas Harris
Keyboard quotes by Julie Harvey Delcourt
#50. If you can't love or hate your characters then walk away from the keyboard. If they aren't real enough to elicit emotion in you, then they certainly won't elicit emotion in the reader. #Quote by Julie Harvey Delcourt
Keyboard quotes by Thomas Dolby
#51. So I'll set a cycle in motion and pop it into record and I'll lay down a drum pattern, a bass line, a keyboard and guitar part, and once the groove is going I launch into the song and sing my song over the top. #Quote by Thomas Dolby
Keyboard quotes by Jill Christman
#52. And, again, this story needs to be revised, is under revision as I type these words. The only way to write an autobiography, I suppose, is to keep writing indefinitely. As soon as your fingers stop moving, this act - your fingers stalling on the keyboard - changes the story. There. I can't keep up. And this idea that it should all be working toward something, that the autobiographical subject in the present tense should be working through the biggest puzzle of her life and arriving somehow at... something. Something big. At what? Happiness? Understanding? Forgiveness? A baby? A book?

I have not arrived. #Quote by Jill Christman
Keyboard quotes by Jeff Britting
#53. After I write a sequence, I just open the script and then sit at the piano keyboard and "play" the script. (And because I also draw and paint, sometimes I sketch out the action as well.) #Quote by Jeff Britting
Keyboard quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#54. The worst part of writing fiction is the fear of wasting your life behind a keyboard. The idea that, dying, you'll realize you only lived on paper. Your only adventures were make-believe, and while the world fought and kissed, you sat in some dark room masturbating and making money. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Keyboard quotes by Mary Garden
#55. In the back of my mind was the constant hankering, almost yearning, to write but something always stopped me in my tracks. Or if I did find my way to put a pen to paper or finger on a keyboard I'd give up after a few minutes. I'd find other things to do: Anything but writing. #Quote by Mary Garden
Keyboard quotes by Wassilly Kandinsky
#56. Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul. #Quote by Wassilly Kandinsky
Keyboard quotes by Rick Riordan
#57. On the stern quarterdeck, Leo rushed around like a madman, checking his gauges and wrestling levers. Most helmsmen would've been satisfied with a pilot's wheel of a tiller. Leo had also installed a keyboard, monitor, aviation controls from a Learjet, a dubstep soundboard, and motion-control sensors from a Nintendo Wii. He could turn the ship by pulling the throttle, fire weapons by sampling an album, or raise sails by shaking his Wii controllers really fast. Even by demigod standards, Leo was seriously ADHD. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Keyboard quotes by Brian Eno
#58. The time I like listening to music most on headphones is, I have a game I play with my brother, he's a musician as well.And he sends me MIDI files of keyboard pieces. So, these are pieces where I just get a MIDI file; I don't know what instrument he was playing them on; I know nothing about his section of the sound of the piece, and then when I'm sitting on trains I do a lot of train travel I turn them into pieces of music. And I love to do that; it's my favorite hobby. #Quote by Brian Eno
Keyboard quotes by Paulo Coelho
#59. Have you ever wondered why the keys on a typewriter are arranged in that particular order?"
"No, I haven't."
"We call it the QWERTY keyboard, because that's the order of the letters on the first row of keys. I once wondered why it was like that, and I found the answer. The first machine was invented by Christopher Sholes, in 1873, to improve on calligraphy, but there was a problem: If a person typed very fast, the keys got stuck together and stopped the machine from working. Then Sholes designed the QWERTY keyboard, a keyboard that would oblige typists to type more slowly. "
"I don't believe it."
"But it's true. It so happened that Remington - which made sewing machines as well as guns at the time - used the QWERTY keyboard for its first typewriters. That meant that more people were forced to learn that particular system, and more companies started to make those keyboards, until it became the only available model. To repeat: The keyboard on typewriters and computers was designed so that people would type more slowly, not more quickly, do you understand? If you changed the letters around, you wouldn't find anyone to buy your product."
When she saw a keyboard for the first time, Mari had wondered why the letters weren't in alphabetical order, but she had then promptly forgotten about it. She assumed it was simply the best layout for people to type quickly. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Keyboard quotes by Pharrell Williams
#60. The keyboard is my journal. #Quote by Pharrell Williams
Keyboard quotes by M T Anderson
#61. The whales," explained Katie, "are going to invade."
"Can I tell you a story, girls?" The police officer leaned back and rested his heels on his computer keyboard. He said patiently, "In the nineteen-sixties there was something called the British Invasion. But no British people really invaded us. It was called an invasion, but all that happened was a lot of British bands sold a lot of records in the United States."
"So you're saying," said Katie, "that really these whales are just going to release a lot of hit singles."
"Don't get fresh," said the police officer. "I'm saying that just because there was something called the British Invasion doesn't mean you should be afraid of British people. See what I mean? The British have never invaded America."
Lily mumbled, "What about the War of 1812?"
"What about it?"
"They burned down Washington D.C. #Quote by M T Anderson
Keyboard quotes by Bill Bailey
#62. Without the beat in the background, Jazz basically sounds like an armadillo was let loose on the keyboard #Quote by Bill Bailey
Keyboard quotes by Betsy Lerner
#63. But every person who does serious time with a keyboard is attempting to translate his version of the world into words so that he might be understood. #Quote by Betsy Lerner
Keyboard quotes by Ariel Winter
#64. When I am not working, I go to the movies, text my friends, my thumbs are faster than lightening on that keyboard!, write songs, sing, dance, Facebook, Twitter and spend time with my besties. I am also a songwriter and I love to write about my life experiences. #Quote by Ariel Winter
Keyboard quotes by Hwang Sok-yong
#65. Their words flitted past, like short sentences typed out on a keyboard, typing away Yosop's past and future. They all said "American troops," but Yosop knew for a fact that the troops had simply been passing through. They were never stationed in Sinchon; they were in a rush to get further north. Both Yosop and his brother Yohan knew for a fact that during those forty-five days, before the arrival of the U.S. troops and after their departure, most of the military strength in the area had consisted of the security forces and the Youth Corps - all Korean. (2007: 99) #Quote by Hwang Sok-yong
Keyboard quotes by Gary Wright
#66. I was the first artist, I think, to ever do an all-keyboard album. There were things that resembled it, like Stevie Wonder. A lot of his stuff was on keyboards, but he used brass and he used other things as well. I was the first artist, also, to use drum machines. I was really the one who kind of started that whole thing. #Quote by Gary Wright
Keyboard quotes by Jonny Greenwood
#67. What I really enjoy about writing for orchestras is realizing that - and it's kind of self-evident - but the fact that they are 48 individuals. It's not, you know, a preset on a keyboard. It's all these people who have opinions and who are making decisions about how to play. #Quote by Jonny Greenwood
Keyboard quotes by Rachel Caine
#68. They're just words," I tell her. "From small men who are brave on the other side of a keyboard and an Internet handle. But I know how you feel." "It's awful," she says in a voice that sounds more like a little girl than the adult she's trying to be. She clears her throat and tries again. "These people are vile." "Yes," I say in agreement, putting my hand on her shoulder. "They'll never care whether or not you were hurt by what they said, or even if you read it; it was all about writing it for them. It's natural to feel afraid and violated by all this. I feel that way all the time." "But?" My daughter knows there's a but. "But you have the power," I tell her. "You can turn off this computer and walk away anytime. They're pixels on a screen. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Keyboard quotes by Tabitha Suzuma
#69. She presses her nose against mine, completely obscuring my view of the keyboard. I find myself staring into her large dark green eyes. Her irises are flecked with gold. I keep playing.
"Wrong note!" she cries, triumphant. #Quote by Tabitha Suzuma
Keyboard quotes by Jerry Spinelli
#70. You know, there's a place we all inhabit, but we don't much think about it, we're scarcely conscious of it, and it lasts for less than a minute a day. It's in the morning, for most of us. It's that time, those few seconds when we're coming out of sleep but we're not really awake yet. For those few seconds we're something more primitive than what we are about to become. We have just slept the sleep of our most distant ancestors, and something of them and their world still clings to us. For those few moments we are unformed, uncivilized. We are not the people we know as ourselves, but creatures more in tune with a tree than a keyboard. We are untitled, unnamed, natural, suspended between was and will be, the tadpole before the frog, the worm before the butterfly. We are, for a few brief moments, anything and everything we could be. #Quote by Jerry Spinelli
Keyboard quotes by Yukihiro Matsumoto
#71. Imagine you are writing an email. You are in front of the computer. You are operating the computer, clicking a mouse and typing on a keyboard, but the message will be sent to a human over the internet. So you are working before the computer, but with a human behind the computer. #Quote by Yukihiro Matsumoto
Keyboard quotes by Kathy Disanto
#72. You may be a serious writer if ….

10. your hard drive is littered with random notes and story ideas … but not nearly as littered as your head.

9. you keep pen and paper next to your bed. And in the glove compartment. And in your gym bag. Also on the rim of the bathtub.

8. a day without Roget's Thesaurus is a day without sunshine.

7. your emotional landscape includes creativity, confidence, elation, frustration, and the occasional neurosis.

6. you've ever had to clean peanut butter and bread crumbs off your keyboard, because the work was going well, and you didn't want to stop for lunch.

5. grammar and punctuation turn you on.

4. your interest in a new acquaintance is directly proportionate to his/her potential as a secondary character.

3. you've worn the white e, r, s, and t clean off your keyboard.

2. the search history on your web browser would raise red flags with the FBI, CIA, DEA, and mental health professionals everywhere.

1. you have stories to tell, and you just. Keep. Telling. Them. #Quote by Kathy Disanto
Keyboard quotes by Michael Darling
#73. Name a song. Any song at all."
She thought for a moment and said, "'Claire de Lune.'"
I placed my hands on the keyboard. I closed my eyes and tilted my head back and struck a key, sounding a single note. "There you go. Gimme another one. I can play the first note of anything. As long as I get to choose the key it's in. #Quote by Michael Darling
Keyboard quotes by Terry Pratchett
#74. First of all you are a writer, a writer is what you are, so it doesn't actually stop the moment you leave your desk, your computer, your keyboard, whatever. Something is operating the back of your mind. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Keyboard quotes by Adam Schlesinger
#75. Andy Chase and I were keyboard players originally, and we became guitarists later. But it's fun for us to focus more on the keyboard stuff sometimes. #Quote by Adam Schlesinger
Keyboard quotes by Ted Sargent
#76. the screen and keyboard account for much of computers' weight. The intelligent part of a computer is a thousand times smaller than a Gucci buckle. #Quote by Ted Sargent
Keyboard quotes by Steve Ballmer
#77. 500 dollars? Fully subsidized? With a plan? I said that is the most expensive phone in the world. And it doesn't appeal to business customers because it doesn't have a keyboard. Which makes it not a very good email machine. #Quote by Steve Ballmer
Keyboard quotes by Roger Ebert
#78. Now I see that all relationships are virtual, even those that take place in person. Whether we use our bodies or a keyboard, it all comes down to two minds crying out from their solitude. #Quote by Roger Ebert
Keyboard quotes by Christian S. Simpson
#79. But for me to start the journey of writing a book about my life, the first place I had to re visit was my past. A book written from the deepest part of my heart as so many tears at times did fall upon the keyboard as I typed away. #Quote by Christian S. Simpson
Keyboard quotes by Robin Gibb
#80. When Maurice touched a keyboard, it was like something from a movie, magical. He would always give you something from a movie, and you'd go, what did you just play ... immediately inspirational writings, amazing. That's what we're going to miss. #Quote by Robin Gibb
Keyboard quotes by Frederic Chopin
#81. I feel like a novice, just as I felt before I knew anything of the keyboard. It is far too original, and I shall end up not being able to learn it myself. #Quote by Frederic Chopin
Keyboard quotes by Laura Mvula
#82. If I'm uncomfortable on stage, everybody can see it. I'm not very good at hiding it. I like long, loose jacket dresses - anything that I can literally have room to move in - not that I'm a very big dancer, but because sometimes I'm sitting down at the keyboard, and then sometimes I'm standing. It just has to feel good. #Quote by Laura Mvula
Keyboard quotes by Charles Baudelaire
#83. Delacroix , Wagner , Baudelaire all great theorists, bent on dominating other minds by sensuous means. Their one dream was to create the irresistible effect to intoxicate, or overwhelm. They looked to analysis to provide them with the keyboard on which to play, with certainty, on man's emotions, and they sought in abstract meditation they key to sure and certain action upon their subject man's nervous and psychic being. #Quote by Charles Baudelaire
Keyboard quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#84. As for the piano, the faster her fingers flew over it, the more he marveled. She struck the keys with aplomb and ran from one end of the keyboard to the other without a stop. #Quote by Gustave Flaubert
Keyboard quotes by Dannielle Wicks
#85. I try to keep my gaze from drifting to her, but I find myself watching her as she taps away at the keyboard, completely oblivious. I twist my pen between my finger and thumb, staring at her. She tilts her head and looks down at her notebook, adjusting her glasses as her pen scribbles over the page. Her light blue eyes flick along as she writes. She bites the edge of her lip and suddenly looks up at me. #Quote by Dannielle Wicks

Keyboard quotes by Brad Barkley
#89. Eliot, huh?" she says. The thin fabric of her long T-shirt brushes my arm. "Is everyone in your family named for a famous symbolist poet?"
No, I'm named for someone who was supposed to be in the Bible but isn't."
No? What happened to him?"
I glance over at her, the way the corner of her mouth turns up, half-smirk, half-smile. Her hair moves as she walks.
He was called to be a disciple, but he had, you know, stuff to do."
Stuff, like...polishing his sandals? Making lunch?"
We keep walking, over the bridge across the lake, past the swings and the playground equipment, just walking.
Exactly. And what about you, everyone in your family named after a...what is it? A keyboard? An organ?"
It's a steam-powered piano. It's also the name of the Greek goddess of poetry. You should read stuff other than chemistry; you'd know these things." Her smirky smile again, her sleeve touching my arm.
I feel like my skin has been removed, every nerve exposed. I open my mouth, and this comes out: "I think you are more goddess than piano." Stupid, stupid.
But she laughs. "You know, that's the nicest thing anyone's said to me today."
You don't see too many calliopes," I tell her.
I'm Cal, actually. I mean, that's what I prefer."
I meant the steam don't see too many." She stops and looks at me, full-on, and right away I put it on the list of the best moments in my life.
Until you said that, Eliot, I wasn't #Quote by Brad Barkley

#90. He raised his hands and, guided by a redeeming impulse of truth-like a conductor leading his orchestra in a grand symphony-finally set fingers to keyboard and let the melody of his story dance across the screen #Quote by Jose Rodrigues Dos Santos
Keyboard quotes by Steve Wozniak
#91. I had no money. I had no savings account.So I would bring down my color TV set, a Sears TV with a cable snaked into it - they had no video-in back in those days - and hooked it up to the circuit of very few chips and then a little keyboard you could type on. And I was trying to impress people with how did he do it with fewer chips than anyone could ever imagine? #Quote by Steve Wozniak
Keyboard quotes by Keith Emerson

Keyboard quotes by Glen Cook
#94. Write. Don't talk about writing. Don't tell me about your wonderful story ideas. Don't give me a bunch of 'somedays'. Plant your ass and scribble, type, keyboard. If you have any talent at all it will leak out despite your failure to pay attention in English.

Keyboard quotes by Noel Gallagher
#95. I've always been into guitars ... we want to put keyboards on, but keyboard players don't look cool onstage, they just keep their heads down. There has never been a cool keyboard player, apart from Elton John. #Quote by Noel Gallagher
Keyboard quotes by Suzi Quatro
#96. After moving to England I did some recording and eventually formed an English band, this was together for quite a few years with only a keyboard replacement. The band had no name, just my name. #Quote by Suzi Quatro
Keyboard quotes by Keith Jarrett
#97. Music always turns into music. As soon as I play a key, push a key down, there's no theory any more. When I go and I hear a sound on the keyboard, all theories go out the window. #Quote by Keith Jarrett
Keyboard quotes by Sarah Dessen
#98. For as long as I'd been dating, I'd had a mental flow chart, a schedule, of how things usually went. Relationships always started with that heady, swoonish period, where the other person is like some new invention that suddenly solves all life's worst problems, like losing socks in the dryer or toasting bagels without burning the edges. At this phase, which usually lasts about six weeks max, the other person is perfect. But at six weeks and two days, the cracks begin to show; not real structural damage yet, but little things that niggle and nag. Like the way they always assume you'll pay for your own movie, just because you did once, or how they use the dashboard of their car as an imaginary keyboard at long stoplights. Once, you might have thought this was cute, or endearing. Now, it annoys you, but not enough to change anything. Come week eight, though, the strain is starting to show. This person is, in fact, human, and here's where most relationships splinter and die. Because either you can stick around and deal with these problems, or ease out gracefully, knowing that at some point in the not-too-distant future, there will emerge another perfect person, who will fix everything, at least for six weeks. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Keyboard quotes by Todd Rundgren
#99. It's great if you can afford to carry a string section on the road with you, but most people are used to the idea of just a keyboard player creating those string sounds. #Quote by Todd Rundgren
Keyboard quotes by Ella Leya
#100. My fingers traced the melody on an invisible keyboard - my usual way to connect with the music, to feel its emotions on my fingertips. I touched the keys softly, as if gliding my hands through water, but the musical notes kept slipping between my fingers like bubbles, waltzing away in the blue radiance. #Quote by Ella Leya
Keyboard quotes by Margaret Atwood
#101. Why do authors wish to pretend they don't exist? It's a way of skinning out, of avoiding truth and consequences. They'd like to deny the crime, although their fingerprints are allover the martini glasses, not to mention the hacksaw blade and the victim's neck. Amnesia, they plead. Epilepsy. Sugar overdose. Demonic possession. How convenient to have an authorial twin, living in your body, looking out through your eyes, pushing pen down on paper or key down on keyboard, while you do what? File your nails? ... A projection, a mass hallucination, a neurological disorder - call her what you will, but don't confuse her with me. #Quote by Margaret Atwood

Keyboard quotes by Italo Calvino
#107. And a keen jealousy invades me, not of other people, but of that me made of ink and periods and commas, who wrote the novels I will write no more, the author who continues to enter the privacy of this young woman, while I, I here and now, with the physical energy I feel surging, much more reliable than the creative impulse, I am separated from her by the immense distance of a keyboard and a white page on the roller. #Quote by Italo Calvino

Keyboard quotes by Barbara Brooke
#112. Why do I write? Because, I am able to create wonders with a click of my keyboard. I turn my computer on, and suddenly, I'm whisked into a world full of wonder and amazement. The universe bends to my will and defies physics. But when the afternoon arrives, I must return to my duties. I leave the comfort of my home and crawl through the elementary school carpool line. When I see the brightened faces of my children, my heart flutters, and I realize I can live with a few straggling toys ... as long as I can escape into the shower later. #Quote by Barbara Brooke
Keyboard quotes by Shauna Niequist
#113. In almost every part of life, the important moments are not the ones you'd think are the important ones. The really important moments are before the "big" moments. When you're writing, the moment you sit down at the keyboard isn't the magic moment; the magic moments are when you decide to see and hear and remember and taste everything in the whole world, choosing to believe that art and creativity are all around you, unfolding and beckoning you. And running is about sleep, water, getting a babysitter, not having that last glass or two of wine. By the time you've laced up your shoes and you're moving your feet, most of the hard choices have been made. #Quote by Shauna Niequist
Keyboard quotes by Haruki Murakami
#114. The exact same text was slightly different to read when viewed on the printed pages rather than on the word processor's screen. The feel of the words he chose would change depending on whether he was writing them on paper in pencil or typing them on the keyboard. It was imperative to do both. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Keyboard quotes by Artur Schnabel
#115. I always make sure that the lid over the keyboard is open before I start to play. #Quote by Artur Schnabel
Keyboard quotes by Jeremy Renner
#116. I do music because I can just pick up my guitar and sing, and completely satisfy, instant gratification. I don't need a script, I don't people, I don't need anything, cameras, I just have myself and my guitar, or keyboard. #Quote by Jeremy Renner
Keyboard quotes by Scott Walker
#117. When I'm writing a lyric, I totally forget about the music. I'm just looking at the lyric and thinking about it almost as a separate entity. And then I'll go to my keyboard with all the lyrics printed out and try to think of how to make this a complete musical thing. I've got a very basic keyboard with some presets. #Quote by Scott Walker
Keyboard quotes by Tori Amos
#118. Music has an alchemical quality. And there's more than one voice on the piano. You have two hands. One can be playing a celestial melody while the other is doing quite the opposite. The joining of the profane and the sacred, or the passionate and the compassionate, happens right there on the keyboard. #Quote by Tori Amos
Keyboard quotes by Chantal Kreviazuk
#119. And I think it's a real challenge to be up there sometimes with only a keyboard if they don't have a grand piano ... and to try to win people over that way. It's really hard. #Quote by Chantal Kreviazuk
Keyboard quotes by Charles Stross
#120. I don't want to permanently damage myself! On the other hand, a couple of days off the keyboard tends to make things somewhat better. #Quote by Charles Stross
Keyboard quotes by Twyla Tharp
#121. What I do remember is visualization of the sound of music, seeing bodies in movement in relation to how music sounded, because my mother practiced at the keyboard a lot and I also went to her lessons. As a two year old, three year old I remember seeing things in movement. #Quote by Twyla Tharp
Keyboard quotes by Nora Roberts
#123. My fondest wish, I suppose, would be to die at the keyboard right after finishing a book, perhaps with a little time off to have some really good sex. It's not, 'Oh, thank God, this is book No. 250. I can die now.' #Quote by Nora Roberts
Keyboard quotes by Caroline Knapp
#124. Cats are narcissistic. Their needs come before ours. They don't understand the word "No." They carry themselves with that aloof, arrogant sense of perpetual entitlement, they will jump up and insinuate themselves wherever they please
on your lap, on your newspaper, on your computer keyboard
and they really couldn't care less how their behavior affects the people in their lives. I've had boyfriends like this; who needs such behavior in a housepet? #Quote by Caroline Knapp
Keyboard quotes by Charles Stross
#125. I drink tea pretty much continuously at a rate of around 1 imperial pint/hour, which sort of enforces screen/keyboard breaks. #Quote by Charles Stross
Keyboard quotes by Michael Meyers
#126. If you want really great surge suppression, you need to move up to power conditioning. Your power lines take in all kinds of strange signals that have no business being in there, such as electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI). Most of the time, this line noise is so minimal it's not worth addressing, but occasionally events (such as lightning) generate enough line noise to cause weird things to happen to your PC (keyboard lockups, messed-up data). All better surge suppressors add power conditioning to filter out EMI and RFI. #Quote by Michael Meyers
Keyboard quotes by Douglas Rushkoff
#127. Beyond the hype, style, and speculation, the truth is that the iPad is really just another tablet device. A really big PDA, where a touchscreen does what a laptop's keyboard used to do. #Quote by Douglas Rushkoff

Keyboard quotes by Joshua L. Liebman
#130. The melody that the loved one played upon the piano of your life will never be played quite that way again, but we must not close the keyboard and allow the instrument to gather dust. We must seek out other artists of the spirit, new friends who gradually will help us to find the road to life again, who will walk the road with us. #Quote by Joshua L. Liebman

Keyboard quotes by Steve DeWinter
#135. In a small, dark room with no windows, a man hunched over his cluttered workstation. Papers were scattered all over the surface of the desk and he had to dig through them to find the keyboard. He sat down and turned on the monitor. As the display warmed up, a bright green typing arrow faded into view in the bottom corner of the screen. The man scraped his hand across his scraggly beard and typed into the screen on his computer. "How are you doing today?" The display beeped and words formed on the screen as someone responded. "When can I have someone to play with?" The man sighed and typed again. "I'm sorry, but you know why you must be alone right now." The computer beeped as the reply came across the screen. "I'm doing better." "I'm sure you are, but I have to be sure you can't hurt anyone." "I promise I won't." "I believe you. But there are some things I have to do to make sure. #Quote by Steve DeWinter
Keyboard quotes by Debra Anastasia
#136. This is what nibbling your ear sounds like." Blake created a soundtrack for his teeth.
"This is what looking into your eyes sounds like." The notes were deep and beckoning.
"This is what my mind hears when my tongue is in your mouth." The kiss sounded steamy and delicate. The rhythm was her heartbeat as he sampled her mouth.
"But when you smile. When you smile it's ... "
Blake scooted the keyboard around behind her. He needed both hands.
She put her hands on his face and smiled in amazement as the music exploded. She couldn't imagine how her simple facial gesture could inspire such a majestic sound.
He smiled back. "One thousand nine hundred and ten."
"So many? Really?"
"Yes, really. And it's not nearly enough. I want to lose count, Livia. Make me lose count." His hands left the beautiful music and grabbed handfuls of her hair. #Quote by Debra Anastasia
Keyboard quotes by Jeff Lindsay
#137. The little toy piped on and into "London Bridge" in the same cheerfully lunatic tone. It was enough to make anyone crazy, but it probably had an extra effect on someone like MacGregor who lived for children. At any rate, I certainly hoped so. I had quite deliberately chosen the little keyboard to lure him out, and I sincerely hoped, in fact, that he would think he had been found out - and that a toy had come from Hell to punish him. After all, why shouldn't I enjoy what I do? #Quote by Jeff Lindsay
Keyboard quotes by Lauren Oliver
#138. As soon as she sees me she swings forward and hits a key on her keyboard. The music cuts off instantly. Strangely, the silence that follows seems just as loud. #Quote by Lauren Oliver

Keyboard quotes by Nita Leland
#142. Allow some warm-up time each day to stimulate your creative flow. A pianist does keyboard exercises. A gymnast stretches. An artist needs to loosen up, too. It takes a few minutes to shift from the real world into a creative mode. #Quote by Nita Leland

#146. All computers expect to be yelled at. There's not a single computer in the whole world that hasn't been sworn at. Even the discreet little VDU with the crossed keys monogram on the keyboard that sits on the Pope's desk in his office in the Vatican has in its time heard language that'd make a Marine blush. #Quote by Tom Holt

Keyboard quotes by Jon Woodson
#156. Something refused to come into focus in my thinking. Indistinctly, as though in a fog, shapes moved toward me and retreated just beyond cognition. But that getting a hold of things is the uncertainty. As the Tractatus says right at the beginning, "The world is everything that is the case." It seemed as though the Mammy≈Divas were just like Steve Jobs, trying to have reality bent to their own wills. Objectively, the iPhone was a muddle of mysticism and logic - breakable glass, non-ergonomic design, lousy battery life, lousy irreplaceable battery, lousy headphone jack, lousy virtual keyboard, lousy email, lousy memory, lousy lice, etc., etc, and an interface that you had to adapt to by pretending as an article of faith that no adaptation was required. The Mammy≈Divas promised a seamless racial interface - eternal blackness ordered and majestic. They put a benign face on their lust for panoptic power. They promised to discipline and punish with pancakes. #Quote by Jon Woodson

Keyboard quotes by Annette J. Dunlea
#158. Ava was blessed with amazing beauty but was academically challenged. Angelina tried to give her a quick introduction to computers but was horrified at Ava's lack of knowledge and complete failure to understand. Ava called the CD drawer the cup holder and honestly thought it was her holding her coffee or drink when typing. She thought the monitor was the telly and the mouse was the roller. She kept exiting programmes instead of closing documents and kept deleting items and forgetting to save things. Things happened Angelina's computers that never happened before: programs failed to respond and the computer kept crashing. She typed e-mails and then printed them and put them in an envelope to post them, Angelina was speechless. She even killed a machine by constant abuse for the week. It just died the screen went blank and a message came up of fundamental hard drive failure, the monitor went black and the keyboard and mouse went dead and could not be restored. It went to the computer scrap yard, RIP. Angelina ran her out of the IT dept in their firm terrified she'd cause any more mayhem. She was the absolute blonde bombshell when it came to computers #Quote by Annette J. Dunlea

It's a steam-powered piano. It's also the name of the Greek goddess of poetry. You should read stuff other than chemistry; you'd know these things." Her smirky smile again, her sleeve touching my arm.
I feel like my skin has been removed, every nerve exposed. I open my mouth, and this is what comes out: "I think you are more goddess than piano." Stupid, stupid.
But she laughs. "You know, that's the nicest thing anyone's said to me today."
You don't see too many calliopes," I tell her
I'm Cal, actually. I mean, that's what I prefer."
I meant the steam don't see too many." She stops and looks at me, full-on, and right away I put it on the list of the best moments in my life.
Until you said that, Eliot, I wasn't fully aware of the demise of the steam piano, so thank you. Really."

Chloe snorted. "You'd be surprised."

"Don't they have security for that kind of thing?"

Keyboard quotes by Michael Tobias
#170. I remember one bobcat they had in here - now bobcats are an endangered species in this neck of the woods - they'd caught it somewhere and they must have put that cat through a dozen rounds of burn experiments before they finally determined that it was utterly useless to them. Like an empty beer can. And then you know what they did to it? Claudius was late for a lunch date so rather thanput the destroyed but still breathing animal to sleep, he picked it up by its hind legs and simply smashed its head against a wall repeatedly until it was dead. How can I forget it: I was the one told to clean up the mess. The head dented in. The eyes slowly closing. The once proud claws hanging down, stunned and lifeless, the utter senselessness of it all, and the hate, a hatred that was consummated in me which is as dangerous a hormone, or chemical, or portion of the brain, as any neutron bomb. Except that I didnt know how to explode. I was like a computer without a keyboard, a bird without wings. Roaring inside. I wanted to kill that man. To do unto others what they had done unto me. I was that bobcat, you better believe it. #Quote by Michael Tobias
Keyboard quotes by Masahiro Sakurai

Stomach groans with hunger but I can't drag myself away from the keyboard. By the time I take a break, I look back and I'm like, "Hell, yeah! #Quote by Tom Jalio
Keyboard quotes by Steve Merrick
#177. Now to reach the point where one evolved technological monkey is typing these words on a keyboard and hoping another evolved technological monkey is bored enough to read them, has taken about 4.34 billion years of planetary evolution. #Quote by Steve Merrick
Keyboard quotes by Melissa Marr
#178. Writing is not just the technical act of your fingers on the keyboard. Writing is living. #Quote by Melissa Marr
Keyboard quotes by Matt Sharp
#179. I'm kind of a one-note at a time, one finger keyboard player. #Quote by Matt Sharp
Keyboard quotes by Paul McCartney
#180. Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony, side by side on my keyboard piano, oh Lord, why don't we? #Quote by Paul McCartney
Keyboard quotes by Zoe M. Bates
#181. Yeah the pen is mightier than the sword, but the keyboard kicks the pen's ass! #Quote by Zoe M. Bates
Keyboard quotes by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
#182. Like Elmore Leonard and Donald Westlake and Robert B. Parker and oh so many others, I want to die with my boots on, facedown on my keyboard if possible, in the middle of a sentence. #Quote by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
Keyboard quotes by David Guterson
#183. Time made me change. I gradually woke up to the realization that this is who I am, an author, a public figure, and I couldn't just hide in my study, tapping away at the keyboard and pretend that I didn't have a role to play beyond stringing words together. #Quote by David Guterson
Keyboard quotes by Bill Bryson
#184. I'm not a natural story-teller. Put a keyboard in front of me and I'm fine, but stand me up in front of an audience and I'm actually quite shy and reserved. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Keyboard quotes by Allan McNish
#185. I think that texting and driving is a 100 percent no-go. I think it should be banned everywhere because you cannot be focused on looking ahead, in the mirrors, being aware of what's around you, and to type on a small keyboard and a small screen. #Quote by Allan McNish
Keyboard quotes by Scott M. Gimple
#186. It is horrible to sit in front of the keyboard and write those scenes because you're losing too. You lose somebody you enjoy working with. #Quote by Scott M. Gimple
Keyboard quotes by David Morrell
#187. Don't give in to doubt. Never be discouraged if your first draft isn't what you thought it would be. Given skill and a story that compels you, muster your determination and make what's on the page closer to what you have in your mind. The chances are that you'll never make them identical. That's one reason I'm still hitting the keyboard. Obsessed by the secrets of my past, I try to put metaphorical versions of them on the page, but each time, no matter how honest and hard my effort, what's in my mind hasn't been fully expressed, compelling me to keep trying. To paraphrase a passage from John Barth's "Lost in the Funhouse," I'll die telling stories to myself in the dark. But there's never enough time. There was never enough time. #Quote by David Morrell
Keyboard quotes by Frederick Corder
#188. If the reader were so rash as to purchase any of Bela Bartok's compositions, he would find that they each and all consist of unmeaning bunches of notes, apparently representing the composer promenading the keyboard in his boots. Some can be played better with the elbows, others with the flat of the hand. None require fingers to perform or ears to listen too. #Quote by Frederick Corder
Keyboard quotes by Nora Roberts
#189. So, you're hitting on Clare the Fair."
"I'm not hitting on her. I'm exploring the possibility of seeing her on social terms."
"He's hitting on her," Owen said around a mouthful of chips. "You've still got that thing you had for her back in high school. Are you still writing bad song lyrics about heartbreak?"
"Suck me. And they weren't that bad."
"Yeah, they were," Ryder disagreed. "But at least now we don't have to listen to you playing your keyboard and howling them down the hall. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Keyboard quotes by Timothy Hallinan
#190. I heard what I'd learned against my will to identify as new age music. Aimless and spacey, it meandered from unresolved keyboard chord to unresolved keyboard chord with some somnolent noodling in place of melody. Drooling pianos, music to sleepwalk by. #Quote by Timothy Hallinan
Keyboard quotes by Michael Bungay Stanier
#191. You already know it's hard to change old ways of behaving, however good your intentions. Or is it just me who has: sworn not to check email first thing in the morning, and nonetheless found myself in the wee small hours, my face lit by that pale screen glow; intended to find inner peace through the discipline of meditation, yet couldn't find five minutes to just sit and breathe, sit and breathe; committed to take a proper lunch break, and somehow found myself shaking the crumbs out of my keyboard, evidence of sandwich spillage; or decided to abstain from drinking for a while, and yet had a glass of good Australian shiraz mysteriously appear in my hand at the end of the day? #Quote by Michael Bungay Stanier
Keyboard quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#192. This book is, in a way, a scrapbook of my writing life. From shopping the cathedral flea market in Barcelona with David Sedaris to having drinks at Cognac with Nora Ephron just months before she died. To the years of sporadic correspondence I had with Thom Jones and Ira Levin. I've stalked my share of mentors, asking for advice.
Therefore, if you came back another day and asked me to teach you, I'd tell you that becoming an author involves more than talent and skill. I've known fantastic writers who never finished a project. And writers who launched incredible ideas, then never fully executed them. And I've seen writers who sold a single book and became so disillusioned by the process that they never wrote another. I'd paraphrase the writer Joy Williams, who says that writers must be smart enough to hatch a brilliant idea - but dull enough to research it, keyboard it, edit and re-edit it, market the manuscript, revise it, revise it, re-revise it, review the copy edit, proofread the typeset galleys, slog through the interviews and write the essays to promote it, and finally to show up in a dozen cities and autograph copies for thousands or tens of thousands of people…
And then I'd tell you, "Now get off my porch."
But if you came back to me a third time, I'd say, "Kid…" I'd say, "Don't say I didn't warn you. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Keyboard quotes by Glen Duncan
#193. There's an exclamation mark on this keyboard which shares tab-space with the number one. Shift+1=! It's insufficient. Radically inadequate as the denotation of my surprise. Even in bold. Even in underlined bold italic. I need something else, some punctuation mark not yet invented. #Quote by Glen Duncan
Keyboard quotes by Guy Ritchie
#194. It's not easy to strap yourself down to a desk and bash on a keyboard when you know you can direct lots of films, because directing films is fun and interactive and gregarious. Writing isn't. #Quote by Guy Ritchie

Keyboard quotes by Jamie Waylett
#196. I like producing beats, and I like rapping, too. I have a program for the PC, and I can hook my keyboard to it. #Quote by Jamie Waylett
Keyboard quotes by Ashlyn Chase
#197. You're amazing," she whispered hoarsely.
He pushed back the hair from her face. "You too."
"How? All I do is let you play me like a piano."
He chuckled. "You've got a great keyboard. #Quote by Ashlyn Chase
Keyboard quotes by Fleur East
#198. I used to just sit in the living room and make up songs on the keyboard. #Quote by Fleur East
Keyboard quotes by Wassily Kandinsky
#199. Color is the keyboard. The eye is the hammer. The soul is the piano, with its many strings. #Quote by Wassily Kandinsky
Keyboard quotes by Mark Walden
#200. Her keyboard. "There," she said eventually. "Bringing up real-time scan." The display changed to a zoomed-in view of the Animus penetration around the object, as several of the tendrils of the black fluid crept toward it. Creed's eyes widened as just a moment later he saw the Animus shrink away from the object. It was impossible to say whether it had been driven back or had recoiled voluntarily, but the reason was at least clear why this tiny part of Malpense's brain had remained free of Animus. Unfortunately, it left them no closer to understanding what the object was. That would require an invasive, #Quote by Mark Walden
