Newspapers quotes by Eugene McCarthy
#1. A newspaper may somewhat arrogantly assert that it prints "all the news that's fit to print." But no newspaper yet has been moved to declare at the end of each edition, "That's the way it is," as Walter Cronkite does. #Quote by Eugene McCarthy
Newspapers quotes by Ben Bradlee
#2. Everybody who talks to a newspaper has a motive. That's just a given. And good reporters always, repeat always, probe to find out what that motive is. #Quote by Ben Bradlee
Newspapers quotes by Victoria Coren
#3. In 2000, John Duthie won the Poker Million on the Isle of Man. He was in the newspapers, he was on television. The first player to win £1,000,000 outside America. Knowing himself, Duthie had the cleverest idea of all time: he put a chunk of the money away, for mortgages and children's education, in a bank account that he opened jointly with his father-in-law. Brilliant. If it had been a joint account with his wife, he might have phoned her from a casino one desperate night and begged her to co-sign a big withdrawal slip. But a call like that to his wife's father? Never. #Quote by Victoria Coren
Newspapers quotes by Jenna Bush
#4. I was sports editor for my high school newspaper, but I think I shied away from journalism. #Quote by Jenna Bush
Newspapers quotes by Jane Smiley
#5. We sort of read two or three big newspapers but we don't get the flavor of the local events, the local news as much. #Quote by Jane Smiley
Newspapers quotes by Ray Stevenson
#6. You just have to open the newspapers in most Western news to see real violence. #Quote by Ray Stevenson
Newspapers quotes by William L. Shirer
#7. Every morning the editors of the Berlin daily newspapers and the correspondents of those published elsewhere in the Reich gathered at the Propaganda Ministry to be told by Dr. Goebbels or by one of his aides what news to print and suppress, how to write the news and headline it, what campaigns to call off or institute and what editorials were desired for the day. In #Quote by William L. Shirer
Newspapers quotes by Mike Barnicle
#8. I don't think we treat people very well in the media, both as customers - and I call them customers - of newspapers and magazines, or TV news, and we don't understand that the greatest story that we could tell, each and every day, is the story of the people around us. #Quote by Mike Barnicle
Newspapers quotes by Alexander Lebedev
#9. Newspapers are a centre of public culture. We can't give in to extortion. #Quote by Alexander Lebedev
Newspapers quotes by Greg Proops
#10. Oh, no! I haven't lost hope at all! Look, we're all here–we're all having a good time on Sunday night! I just read you a lot of depressing shit like that and talk about these things because you have to think about them sometimes. I haven't lost hope at all. There's going to be abortion; there's going to be health care; there's going to be medical marijuana; there's going to be peace in the world; there's going to be homosexual marriage: all this is going to happen, because all the generation that hates it and is against it and is fervent about it is going to die. I may not get to see it, but . . . The people who are young right now don't care about any of those things: they care about technology; they care about eating; they care about learning. They're curious; they want to find out things; they want the world to be bigger; they want to know about other people in other places; they want to inform themselves and use analytical thinking; they don't trust the traditional media sources that we've all been poisoned to fucking listen to like the television and the newspapers and all the shit that comes up on the Internet: they learn to fucking discern because they have to pick out pieces of information all the time. So, I have nothing but fucking hope for the world. #Quote by Greg Proops
Newspapers quotes by Timur Vermes
#11. We all know, of course, what to make of our newspapers. The deaf man writes down what the blind man has told him, the village idiot edits it, and their colleagues in the other press houses copy it. Each story is doused afresh with the same stagnant infusion of lies, so that the "splendid" brew can then be served up to a clueless Volk. #Quote by Timur Vermes
Newspapers quotes by Pico Iyer
#12. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. #Quote by Pico Iyer
Newspapers quotes by Fatih Akin
#13. The Turks who live here in Germany don't get their information from German media. They read Turkish newspapers and watch Turkish television. A sort of parallel media world has developed in Germany, especially as a result of technological advances like satellite TV and the internet. #Quote by Fatih Akin
Newspapers quotes by Aja Naomi King
#14. Back when people couldn't read, other people would take newspapers and turn them into theater so that people would know what was going on in the world. That is a powerful thing. #Quote by Aja Naomi King
Newspapers quotes by Stephen Vincent Benet
#15. Ironically the blog has re-opened the essay as a good form for me. I like to look and make commentary! If I sense my essays are good, I try to resubmit to another place in pulp and several of them have been variously published in newspapers and magazines. #Quote by Stephen Vincent Benet
Newspapers quotes by Nick Davies
#16. The friends of tabloid newspapers often point out that their journalism exists only because millions of people pay money to read it. #Quote by Nick Davies
Newspapers quotes by Amartya Sen
#17. If the government is vulnerable to public opinion, then famines are a dreadfully bad thing to have. You can't win many elections after a famine, and you don't like being criticized by newspapers, opposition parties in parliament, and so on. Democracy gives the government an immediate political incentive to act. #Quote by Amartya Sen
Newspapers quotes by Salman Rushdie
#18. Well, there they were, the masters of the earth, canned like tuna on wheels and blind as bats, their heads full of mischief and their newspapers of blood. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Newspapers quotes by Pete Hamill
#19. Bootleggers were romanticized by people like F. Scott Fitzgerald, for example. Gatsby is a bootlegger. And they were not thought of as evil criminals in the newspapers, either. There was a certain amount of affection for them. #Quote by Pete Hamill
Newspapers quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#20. Newspapers are the second hand of history. This hand, however, is usually not only of inferior metal to the other hands, it also seldom works properly. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Newspapers quotes by Justin Trudeau
#21. I don't read the newspapers, I don't watch the news. I figure, if something important happens, someone will tell me. #Quote by Justin Trudeau
Newspapers quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#22. From forty years' experience of the wretched guess-work of the newspapers of what is not done in open daylight, and of their falsehood even as to that, I rarely think them worth reading, and almost never worth notice. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Newspapers quotes by Victor Borge
#23. When I was a little boy and played Liebestraum, my father used to hit me on the head with a newspaper every time I slopped the cadenza ... I hate Liebestraum. #Quote by Victor Borge
Newspapers quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#24. People don't actually read newspapers - they get into them every morning like a hot bath. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Newspapers quotes by Thomas Watson Jr.
#25. The last thing we want is politicians running newspapers, but so too we don't want newspapers running the government. #Quote by Thomas Watson Jr.
Newspapers quotes by Rob Brezsny
#26. The average American child sees 20,000 murders in TV before reaching age 18. This is considered normal. Every community has video rental stores filled with multimillion-dollar films that depict people doing terrible things to each other. If you read newspapers, you have every right to believe that Bad Nasty Things compose 90 percent of the human experience. But you will be hard-pressed to find more than a few novels, films, news stories, and TV shows that dare to depict life as a gift whose purpose is to enrich the human soul. #Quote by Rob Brezsny
Newspapers quotes by Phil Ochs
#27. There is an urgent need for Americans to look deeply into themselves and their actions, and musical poetry is perhaps the most effective mirror available. Every newspaper headline is a potential song. #Quote by Phil Ochs
Newspapers quotes by Rupert Friend
#28. I don't really use the Internet or the newspapers to find out about people. #Quote by Rupert Friend
Newspapers quotes by Samuel Hopkins Adams
#29. Shut your eyes to the medical columns of the newspapers, and you will save yourself many forebodings and symptoms. #Quote by Samuel Hopkins Adams
Newspapers quotes by Rebekah Brooks
#30. In a highly competitive newspaper market, every editor needs to appeal to female readers to boost their circulation. #Quote by Rebekah Brooks
Newspapers quotes by Maureen Ogle
#31. [N]ow that growing your own (food, dope, hair, younameit) is hip," wrote the author of an essay widely reprinted in alternative newspapers, "it's time to resurrect the Dope of the Depression - Homebrew." Homemade beer inspired "good vibrations" and a "pleasant high." Unlike the rest of "plastic, mass-produced shit" of modern America, homebrew represented "an exercise of craft" and empowered the "politically oriented" to retaliate against "Augustus [sic] Busch and the other fascists pigs who [were] ripping off the Common Man." "If you're looking for a cheap drunk," added the beer adviser, "go back to Gussie Busch. But if you dig the good vibes from using something you make yourself, plus an improvement in quality over the commercial shit," brew on, brothers and sisters, brew on. #Quote by Maureen Ogle
Newspapers quotes by Elayne Boosler
#32. While editors and newspaper owners currently fret over shrinking readership and lost profits, they do the one thing that insures cutting their own throats; they keep reducing space for the one feature that attracts new young readers in the first place; the comic strips. #Quote by Elayne Boosler
Newspapers quotes by John Dos Passos
#33. there can be no reason to believe these officers of an established news organization serving newspapers all over the country failed to realize their responsibilities at a moment of supreme significance to the people of this country. #Quote by John Dos Passos
Newspapers quotes by Maxim Behar
#34. In the same way, when newspapers began to die and social media started its supreme reign, we didn't imagine the risk of fake news. We didn't think that when media is freely in the hands of billions of people, they will do with it as they please. We didn't suspect that social media profiles could be stolen and fake personalities would come up. We didn't know that there would be fake profiles, pretend- ers, bots, and other ill-minded actors whose only goal would be to carry out some political or business manipulation agenda so they could destroy some company or boost another that didn't have what it takes. #Quote by Maxim Behar
Newspapers quotes by Groucho Marx
#35. I read in the newspapers they are going to have 30 minutes of intellectual stuff on television every Monday from 7:30 to 8. to educate America. They couldn't educate America if they started at 6:30. #Quote by Groucho Marx
Newspapers quotes by Anonymous
#36. For a time, the press lord William Randolph Hearst did everything in his vast powers to keep the film "Citizen Kane" from finding an audience. He intimidated theater owners, refused to let ads run in his newspapers, and even pressured studio sycophants to destroy the negative. At first, the titan of San Simeon had his way: the film faded from view after a splashy initial release. But over the years, "Citizen Kane" came to be recognized for the masterpiece it is, and now regularly tops lists as the greatest film ever made. #Quote by Anonymous
Newspapers quotes by Margaret Atwood
#37. The newspaper journalists like to believe the worst; they can sell more papers that way, as one of them told me himself; for even upstanding and respectable people dearly love to read ill of others. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Newspapers quotes by Charlie Munger
#38. It is way less certain to be a wonderful business in the future. The threat is alternative mediums of information. Every newspaper is scrambling to parlay their existing advantage into dominance on the Internet. But it is way less sure [that this will occur] than the certainty 20 years ago that the basic business would grow steadily, so there's more downside risk. The perfectly fabulous economics of this business could become grievously impaired. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Newspapers quotes by Mary C. Ames
#39. Only a newspaper! Quick read, quick lost, Who sums the treasure that it carries hence? Torn, trampled under feet, who counts thy cost, Star-eyed intelligence? #Quote by Mary C. Ames
Newspapers quotes by Eddie Murphy
#40. I haven't read a newspaper in 20 years. I don't look at the computer or anything. You have to have a filter on what you let in. #Quote by Eddie Murphy
Newspapers quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#41. The Chicago City News Bureau was a tripwire for all the newspapers in town when I was there, and there were five papers, I think. We were out all the time around the clock and every time we came across a really juicy murder or scandal or whatever, they'd send the big time reporters and photographers, otherwise they'd run our stories. So that's what I was doing, and I was going to university at the same time. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Newspapers quotes by Norman Douglas
#42. I wish the English still possessed a shred of the old sense of humour which Puritanism, and dyspepsia, and newspaper reading, and tea-drinking have nearly extinguished. #Quote by Norman Douglas
Newspapers quotes by Edward Hirsch
#43. Books and newspapers assume a "common reader" that is, a person who knows the things known by other literate persons in the culture. Obviously, such assumptions are never identical from writer to writer, but they show a remarkable consistency #Quote by Edward Hirsch
Newspapers quotes by Nancy Gibbs
#44. I feel like my competition is everything else that's competing for people's attention, not just other print magazines, newspapers and cable. It's your kid's report card and the games you want to play, all the things that compete for people's time. #Quote by Nancy Gibbs
Newspapers quotes by Sylvia Townsend Warner
#45. General de Gaulle is again pictured in our newspapers, looking as usual like an embattled codfish. #Quote by Sylvia Townsend Warner
Newspapers quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#46. Instead, we were given a publication called the Weekly Reader, which was like a newspaper for four-foot illiterates. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Newspapers quotes by Ralph Ellison
#47. These white folk have newspapers, magazines, radios, spokesmen to get their ideas across. If they want to tell the world a lie, they can tell it so well that it becomes the truth; and if I tell them that you're lying, they'll tell the world even if you prove you're telling the truth. Because it's the kind of lie they want to hear ... #Quote by Ralph Ellison
Newspapers quotes by Thomas Bernhard
#48. Years later the world confirmed my judgment, but this only pained me, like everything confirmed by the newspapers. We exist, we don't have any other choice, Glenn #Quote by Thomas Bernhard
Newspapers quotes by Robert Rosenberg
#49. We know that ATT is upgrading their TCI network to provide voice services, but we believe that upgrade will go beyond that, for total interactivity at very reliable rates. Video telephone calls, downloading music videos, television broadcasts, online newspapers - all of this would be in digital mode. I think they certainly intend to be the one-stop shop and once they do that, it will force the other multiple system operators to follow suit. #Quote by Robert Rosenberg
Newspapers quotes by Max Hastings
#50. There was no doubt that in the early and mid-eighties that many of us in broadsheet newspapers felt that we still had a responsibility to try to protect the Royal Family or if you like protect the Monarchy from the assaults of the media. #Quote by Max Hastings
Newspapers quotes by Richard Brautigan
#51. The sun was like a huge 50-cent piece that someone had poured kerosene on and then had lit with a match, and said, "Here, hold this while I go get a newspaper," and put the coin in my hand, but never came back. #Quote by Richard Brautigan
Newspapers quotes by Max Nordau
#52. By the end of the 20th Century there will be a generation to whom it will not be injurious to read a dozen quire of newspapers daily, to be constantly called to the telephone ... and to live half their time in a railway carriage or in a flying machine. #Quote by Max Nordau
Newspapers quotes by Eric Alterman
#53. Three centuries after the appearance of Franklin's 'Courant', it no longer requires a dystopic imagination to wonder who will have the dubious distinction of publishing America's last genuine newspaper. Few believe that newspapers in their current printed form will survive. #Quote by Eric Alterman
Newspapers quotes by J. James Exon
#54. The information superhighway is a revolution that in years to come will transcend newspapers, radio, and television as an information source. Therefore, I think this is the time to put some restrictions on it. #Quote by J. James Exon
Newspapers quotes by Larry McMurtry
#55. She wasn't going to succeed in newspapers if she didn't ask the big questions when she could. #Quote by Larry McMurtry
Newspapers quotes by Robin Leach
#56. I wanted no other job than to work in newspapers. I was fascinated by the process of collecting information, talking to people and having the story appear in a paper that would be delivered in your letterbox. #Quote by Robin Leach
Newspapers quotes by Angelina Jolie
#57. It is not enough to defend our values at home, in our newspapers and in our institutions. We also have to defend them in the refugee camps of the Middle East, and the ruined ghost towns of Syria. #Quote by Angelina Jolie
Newspapers quotes by David J. C. MacKay
#58. In a climate where people don't understand the numbers, newspapers, campaigners, companies, and politicians can get away with murder #Quote by David J. C. MacKay
Newspapers quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#59. One of the objects of a newspaper is to understand popular feeling and to give expression to it; another is to arouse among the people certain desirable sentiments; and the third is fearlessly to expose popular defects. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Newspapers quotes by Eduard Hanslick
#60. You cannot imagine the wild enthusiasm that these two men created in Vienna. Newspapers went into raptures over each new waltz, and innumerable articles appeared about Lanner and Strauss. #Quote by Eduard Hanslick
Newspapers quotes by Rick Bragg
#61. I don't think there's a difference between writing for a newspaper or magazine and doing a chapter in a book. #Quote by Rick Bragg
Newspapers quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#62. I then completely gave up reading newspapers and watching television, which freed up a considerable amount of time (say one hour or more a day, enough time to read more than a hundred additional books per year, which, after a couple of decades, starts mounting). #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Newspapers quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#63. In the world of journalism, the personal Web site ("blog") was hailed as the killer of the traditional media. In fact it has become hailed as the killer of the traditional media. In fact it has become something quite different. Far from replacing newspapers and magazines, the best blogs-and the best are very clever- have become guides to them, pointing to unusual sources and commenting on familiar ones. They have become mediators for the informed public. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Newspapers quotes by Marie Dressler
#64. There are very few persons who would think of inquiring into the private life of the newspaper dealer at the corner, or the druggist, or the doctor, or even a Mah Jong partner, but the moment one belongs to the theatrical profession, the public usually feels cheated unless it knows one's inmost thoughts of love. #Quote by Marie Dressler
Newspapers quotes by Ryan Holmes
#65. It may be coincidence that the decline of newspapers has corresponded with the rise of social media. Or maybe not. #Quote by Ryan Holmes
Newspapers quotes by Syd Field
#66. By doing research - whether in written sources such as books, magazines, or newspapers or through personal interviews - you acquire information. The information you collect allows you to operate from the position of choice, confidence, and responsibility. You can choose to use some, or all, or none of the material you've gathered; that's your choice, dictated by the terms of the story. Not using it because you don't have it offers you no choice at all, and will always work against you and your story. #Quote by Syd Field
Newspapers quotes by Frank Miller
#67. I think most things I read on the Internet and in newspapers are propaganda. Everyone from the 'New York Times' to Rupert Murdoch has a point of view and is putting forth their own propaganda. They're stuck with the facts as they are, but the way they interpret and frame them is wildly different. #Quote by Frank Miller
Newspapers quotes by Howard Zinn
#68. History is instructive. And what it suggests to people is that even if they do little things, if they walk on the picket line, if they join a vigil, if they write a letter to their local newspaper. Anything they do, however small, becomes part of a much, much larger sort of flow of energy. And when enough people do enough things, however small they are, then change takes place. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Newspapers quotes by Margaret Atwood
#69. The trouble some people have being German, I thought, I have being human. In a way it was stupid to be more disturbed by a dead bird than by those other things, the wars and riots and the massacres in the newspapers. But for the wars and riots there was always an explanation, people wrote books about them saying why they happened: the death of the heron was causeless, undiluted. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Newspapers quotes by Tammy Faye Bakker
#70. People think that if they read something in the newspaper or see it on TV, it has to be true. #Quote by Tammy Faye Bakker
Newspapers quotes by William Faulkner
#71. The best fiction is far more true than any journalism. #Quote by William Faulkner
Newspapers quotes by Howard Zinn
#72. Because of the control of the media by corporate wealth, the discovery of truth depends on an alternative media, such as small radio stations, networks, programs. Also, alternative newspapers, which exist all over the country. Also, cable TV programs, which are not dependent on commercial advertising. Also, the internet, which can reach millions of people by-passing the conventional media. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Newspapers quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#73. Pay no attention whatsoever to newspaper nonsense or criticism. Be sincere and do your duty. Everything will come all right. Truth must triumph. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Newspapers quotes by C. G. Jung
#74. Attempt to influence public opinion by means of newspapers, radio, television, and advertising are based on two factors. On the one hand, they rely on sampling techniques that reveal the trend of "opinion" or "wants"-that is, of collective attitudes. On the other, they express the prejudices, projections, and unconscious complexes (mainly the power complex) of those who manipulate public opinion. But statistics do no justice to the individual. Although the average size of stones in a heap may be five centimeters, one will find very few stones of exactly this size in the heap. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Newspapers quotes by P.T. Barnum
#75. I don't care what the newspapers say about me as long as they spell my name right. #Quote by P.T. Barnum
Newspapers quotes by Gerry Lindgren
#76. I started running in Junior High School. I was so slow and uncoordinated the coach set me up with a paper route so that instead of going to work out after school I went to the corner of Providence Ave at Crestline St. and picked up a bundle of 15 newspapers. #Quote by Gerry Lindgren
Newspapers quotes by Walter De La Mare
#77. Lear, Macbeth. Mercutio – they live on their own as it were. The newspapers are full of them, if we were only the Shakespeares to see it. Have you ever been in a Police Court? Have you ever watched tradesmen behind their counters? My soul, the secrets walking in the streets! You jostle them at every corner. There's a Polonius in every first-class railway carriage, and as many Juliets as there are boarding-schools. ... How inexhaustibly rich everything is, if you only stick to life. #Quote by Walter De La Mare
Newspapers quotes by Jeffrey Sachs
#78. Every morning our newspapers could read, 'More than 20,000 people perished yesterday of extreme poverty.' How? The poor die in hospital wards that lack drugs, in villages that lack antimalarial bed nets, in houses that lack safe drinking water. They die namelessly, without public comment. Sadly, sad stories rarely get written. #Quote by Jeffrey Sachs
Newspapers quotes by Tom Verducci
#79. I'm still the kid who grew up with ink on his hands from delivering newspapers. #Quote by Tom Verducci
Newspapers quotes by Tina Brown
#80. It's one of the biggest fibs going that American newspapers are now being forced to give up their commitment to investigative reporting. Most of them gave up long ago as their greedy managements squeezed every cent out of the bottom line and turned their newsrooms into eunuchs. #Quote by Tina Brown
Newspapers quotes by Alain De Botton
#81. Newspapers are being read all around. The point is not, of course, to glean new information, but rather to coax the mind out of its sleep-induced introspective temper. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Newspapers quotes by Paula Rego
#82. I get inspiration from things that have nothing to do with painting: caricature, items from newspapers, sights in the street, proverbs, nursery-rhymes, children's games and songs, nightmares, desires, terrors ... That question [why do you paint?] has been put to me before and my answer was, 'To give terror a face.' But it's more than that. I paint because I can't help it. #Quote by Paula Rego
Newspapers quotes by Shirley Manson
#83. I want to hang out in Edinburgh with my friends and eat fish and chips wrapped in newspaper. #Quote by Shirley Manson
Newspapers quotes by James Purdy
#84. New York establishment isn't really a literary establishment. It's just a collection of broken down old newspaper hacks who pass judgment on books that they have not even read, with assuredness of Jehova. #Quote by James Purdy
Newspapers quotes by Grace Coolidge
#85. It has been my unbroken policy not to see newspaper writers or give interviews to anyone. At the word interview spoken or written my ears go up and my chin out. #Quote by Grace Coolidge
Newspapers quotes by Joseph Pilates
#86. Daily, from sunrise to sunset, the radio, newspapers and magazines broadcast to the world how to maintain health, how to regain health ... the conflicting information, expressive of the different opinions of these various health authorities, has proved to be nothing less than confusion ... #Quote by Joseph Pilates
Newspapers quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#87. It is the advertiser who provides the paper for the subscriber. It is not to be disputed, that the publisher of a newspaper in this country, without a very exhaustive advertising support, would receive less reward for his labor than the humblest mechanic. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Newspapers quotes by John Dos Passos
#88. U. S. A. is the slice of a continent. U. S. A. is a group of holding companies, some aggregations of trade unions, a set of laws bound in calf, a radio network, a chain of moving picture theatres, a column of stockquotations rubbed out and written in by a Western Union boy on a blackboard, a public-library full of old newspapers and dogeared historybooks with protests scrawled on the margins in pencil. U. S. A. is the world's greatest rivervalley fringed with mountains and hills, U. S. A. is a set of bigmouthed officials with too many bankaccounts. U. S. A. is a lot of men buried in their uniforms in Arlington Cemetery. U. S. A. is the letters at the end of an address when you #Quote by John Dos Passos
Newspapers quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#89. A man can be a hero if he is a scientist, or a soldier, or a drug addict, or a disc jockey, or a crummy mediocre politician. A man can be a hero because he suffers and despairs; or because he thinks logically and analytically; or because he is sensitive; or because he is cruel. Wealth establishes a man as a hero, and so does poverty. Virtually any circumstance in a man's life will make him a hero to some group of people and has a mythic rendering in the culture
in literature, art, theater, or the daily newspapers. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Newspapers quotes by William Gaddis
#90. -We live in Rome, he says, turning his face to the room again,
-Caligula's Rome, with a new circus of vulgar bestialized suffering in the newspapers every morning. The masses, the fetid masses, he says, bringing all his weight to his feet.-How can they even suspect a self who can do more, when they live under absolutely no obligation. There are so few beautiful things in the world ... #Quote by William Gaddis
Newspapers quotes by Clarence Darrow
#91. Criminal cases receive the attention of the press. The cruel and disagreeable things of life are more apt to get the newspaper space than the pleasant ones. It must be that most people enjoy hearing of and reading about the troubles of others. Perhaps men unconsciously feel that they rise in the general level as others go down. #Quote by Clarence Darrow
Newspapers quotes by Jean De La Fontaine
#92. Every newspaper editor owes tribute to the devil. #Quote by Jean De La Fontaine
Newspapers quotes by Henry Miller
#93. How speak about an art which no one recognizes as an art? I know that a great deal has already been written about the "art of the cinema". One can read about it most every day in the newspapers & the magazines. But it is not the art of the cinema which you will find discussed therein
it is rather dire, botched embryo as it now stands revealed before our eyes, the still-birth which was mangled in the womb by the obstetricians of art. #Quote by Henry Miller
Newspapers quotes by Seth
#94. Comics are given serious attention now and I'm quite surprised. You see them reviewed in major newspapers and exhibited in serious museums. I wouldn't have predicted it. #Quote by Seth
Newspapers quotes by Jeff Shaara
#95. GENERAL GRANT: "There is only one way to make war, Colonel. You have to HURT somebody. Maybe you have to hurt EVERYBODY. Make them feel it, understand what it is we are doing out here. If this was worth fighting in the first place, then it is worth winning. We cannot win unless we fight. If we fight, men will die. If more of THEM die, then we will win. It has nothing to do with cities, or government, or what is barbaric and what is civilized. We are HERE, and the enemy ois over there, and we must give the newspapers the horrifying truth, then the people will know. If Mr. Lincoln does not want me to win this war, then he can make that decision. But there is no other way to see it. If these men do not fight and bleed and die, if we do not make the rebels quit by destroying their will to fight, by destroying their army, then the only other choice is to walk away. #Quote by Jeff Shaara
Newspapers quotes by Gloria Steinem
#96. You can hardly open a newspaper without seeing that a woman has been killed by a man for clearly gender-related reasons. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Newspapers quotes by Jacob August Riis
#97. This will remain so after Hurricane Katrina disappears from the front pages of our newspapers. Long ago. it was said that 'one half of the world does not know how the other half lives. ' ... It did not know because it did not care ... until some flagrant outrage on decency and the health of the community aroused it to noisy but ephemeral indignation. #Quote by Jacob August Riis
Newspapers quotes by G.H. Finn
#98. The chances of anyone colonizing Mars are a million to one!" Or so the newspapers said. But still we came. #Quote by G.H. Finn
Newspapers quotes by J.D. Salinger
#99. No, there wouldn't be," Holden said. "It'd be entirely different." Sally looked at him; he had contradicted her so quietly. "It wouldn't be the same at all. We'd have to go downstairs in elevators with suitcases and stuff. We'd have to call up everyone and tell 'em goodbye and send 'em postcards. And I'd have to work at my father's and ride in Madison Avenue buses and read newspapers. We'd have to go to the Seventy-second Street all the time and see newsreels. Newsreels! There's always a dumb horse race and some dame breaking a bottle over a ship. You don't see what I mean at all." "Maybe I don't. Maybe you don't, either," Sally said. Holden stood up, with his skates swung over one shoulder. "You give me a royal pain," he announced quite dispassionately. #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Newspapers quotes by George Orwell
#100. Unpopular ideas can be silenced, and inconvenient facts kept dark, without the need for any official ban. Anyone who has lived long in a foreign country will know of instances of sensational items of news - things which on their own merits would get the big headlines-being kept right out of the British press, not because the Government intervened but because of a general tacit agreement that 'it wouldn't do' to mention that particular fact. So far as the daily newspapers go, this is easy to understand. The British press is extremely centralised, and most of it is owned by wealthy men who have every motive to be dishonest on certain important topics. But the same kind of veiled censorship also operates in books and periodicals, as well as in plays, films and radio. At any given moment there is an orthodoxy, a body of ideas which it is assumed that all right-thinking people will accept without question. It is not exactly forbidden to say this, that or the other, but it is 'not done' to say it, just as in mid-Victorian times it was 'not done' to mention trousers in the presence of a lady. Anyone who challenges the prevailing orthodoxy finds himself silenced with surprising effectiveness. A genuinely unfashionable opinion is almost never given a fair hearing, either in the popular press or in the highbrow periodicals. #Quote by George Orwell
Newspapers quotes by John Lennon
#101. I'm cynical about society, politics, newspapers, government. But I'm not cynical about life, love, goodness, death. That's why I really don't want to be labeled a cynic. #Quote by John Lennon
Newspapers quotes by James G. Watt

Newspapers quotes by Anne Lamott
#103. Try looking at your mind as a wayward puppy that you are trying to paper train. You don't drop-kick a puppy into the neighbor's yard every time it piddles on the floor. You just keep bringing it back to the newspaper. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Newspapers quotes by Russell Baker
#104. After two years studying what rewrite men did with the facts I phoned them, I knew that journalism was essentially a task of stringing together seamlessly an endless series of cliches. #Quote by Russell Baker
Newspapers quotes by Guy Burgess
#105. The mass media in the days of newspapers and television it's hard to be able to find a story that's about just what you're interested in at the time you're interested in it. #Quote by Guy Burgess
Newspapers quotes by Robert Creeley
#106. Suddenly the whole imagination of writing and editorial and newspaper and all these presumptions about who am I reading this, and who else other people may be, and all that, it's so grimly brutal! #Quote by Robert Creeley
Newspapers quotes by Potter Stewart
#107. Newspapers, television networks, and magazines have sometimes been outrageously abusive, untruthful, arrogant, and hypocritical. But it hardly follows that elimination of a strong and independent press is the way to eliminate abusiveness ... #Quote by Potter Stewart
Newspapers quotes by Paolo Bacigalupi
#108. Everyone in China knows The Topics. The television stations and newspapers run the same state-generated stories all across the country, and the Chinese form their opinions based on these somewhat controlled sources. #Quote by Paolo Bacigalupi
Newspapers quotes by Eric Bell
#109. In North America, the medium-to-large publishers are generally confining investment to enhancements, upgrades and opportunities for incremental capacity and efficiency improvements, while among the smaller newspapers, there continues to be interest in systems that can provide a significant boost in production capabilities. #Quote by Eric Bell
Newspapers quotes by Ishmael Reed
#110. I'm sure that a previous generation of Jews who published radical newspapers and journals would be critical of [David] Simon's projects. These were left wingers who suffered casualties in some of bloodiest strikes in American history. #Quote by Ishmael Reed
Newspapers quotes by Gore Vidal
#111. Helped the boy-governor eat the remains of the fruit, they discussed how it was that newspapers sometimes knew all sorts of secrets that they ought not to have known - and certainly ought not to publish, when the rest of the time they had no interest in facts at all. "Whatever sounds as if it might suit the prejudices of the reader, that is what will be published," said Chase. #Quote by Gore Vidal

#112. If you don't believe your salmon is wild, ask it to fetch your newspaper and see what happens. #Quote by Scott Adams
Newspapers quotes by Pete Hamill
#113. Quite simply, I love newspapers and the men and women who make them. Newspapers have given me a full, rich life. They have provided me with a ringside seat at some of the most extraordinary events in my time on the planet. They have been my university. They have helped feed, house and educate my children. I want them to go on and on and on. #Quote by Pete Hamill
Newspapers quotes by Alain De Botton
#114. We read the weird tales in newspapers to crowd out the even weirder stuff inside us. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Newspapers quotes by Steven Pinker
#115. Some people think that evolutionary psychology claims to have discovered that human nature is selfish and wicked. But they are flattering the researchers and anyone who would claim to have discovered the opposite. No one needs a scientist to measure whether humans are prone to knavery. The question has been answered in the history books, the newspapers, the ethnographic record, and the letters to Ann Landers. But people treat it like an open question, as if someday science might discover that it's all a bad dream and we will wake up to find that it is human nature to love one another. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Newspapers quotes by George Shirk

Newspapers quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#119. When I went back to Iraq again, after the liberation was complete, I was myself engaged on a sort of "dig", and I decided to travel with Paul Wolfowitz. It was in its own way an archaeological and anthropological expedition. Here are some of the things we unearthed or observed. Unnoticed by almost everybody, and unreported by most newspapers, Saddam Hussein's former chief physicist Dr. Mahdi Obeidi had waited until a few weeks after the fall of Baghdad to accost some American soldiers and invite them to excavate his back garden. There he showed them the components of a gas centrifuge
the crown jewels of uranium enrichment
along with a two-foot stack of blueprints. This burial had originally been ordered by Saddam's younger son Qusay, who had himself been in charge of the Ministry of Concealment, and had outlasted many visits by "inspectors". I myself rather doubt that Hans Blix would ever have found the trove on his own. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Newspapers quotes by Andrew Carnegie
#120. If the newspapers begin to publish stories about wars, and the people begin to think and talk of war in their daily conversations, they soon find themselves at war. People get that which their minds dwell upon, and this applies to a group or community or a nation of people, the same as to an individual #Quote by Andrew Carnegie
Newspapers quotes by H.L. Mencken
#121. The way for newspapers to meet the competition of radio and television is simply to get out better papers. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Newspapers quotes by Cassandra Clare
#122. Jessamine recoiled from the paper as if it were a snake. "A lady does not read the newspaper. The society pages, perhaps, or the theater news. Not this filth."
"But you are not a lady, Jessamine
," Charlotte began.
"Dear me," said Will. "Such harsh truths so early in the morning cannot be good for the digestion. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Newspapers quotes by David Gregory
#123. Let's just be clear here. The vice president of the United States accidentally shoots a man, and he feels that it's appropriate for a ranch owner who witnessed this to tell the local Corpus Christi newspaper and not the White House press corps at large, or notify the public in a national way. #Quote by David Gregory
Newspapers quotes by Bill Gross
#124. Whenever I read the newspaper, I say to myself, 'At least my wife loves me.' #Quote by Bill Gross
Newspapers quotes by Bill Maher
#125. NEW RULE: 'Kidiots' Leave the children behind. At least until they learn something. A new study has shown that half of American high schools agree that newspapers should only be able to publish government-approved material. Almost one out of five said people should not be allowed to voice unpopular opinions..This is the first generation after September 11th, who discovered news during a 'watch what you say' administration ... George W. Bush once asked, 'is our children learning.' No, they isn't. A better question would be, 'is our teacher's teaching? #Quote by Bill Maher
Newspapers quotes by John Howard Griffin
#126. Newspapers play up as sensational every attempt by a Negro to rape a white woman. Yet this white rape of Negro women is apparently a different matter. But it is rape nonetheless, and practiced on a scale that dwarfs the Negro's defaults. The #Quote by John Howard Griffin
Newspapers quotes by Robert Rauschenberg
#127. A newspaper that you're not reading can be used for anything; and the same people didn't think it was immoral to wrap their garbage in newspaper. #Quote by Robert Rauschenberg
Newspapers quotes by Eli Broad
#128. There is no substitute for knowledge. To this day, I read three newspapers a day. It is impossible to read a paper without being exposed to ideas. And ideas - more than money - are the real currency for success. #Quote by Eli Broad
Newspapers quotes by Elton Trueblood
#129. The writers in the newspapers could sounds smart because they did not have the responsibilities of decision, and they could sound bold by enunciating positions which they were not required to implement. #Quote by Elton Trueblood
Newspapers quotes by Eric Schmidt
#130. This is a common refrain you hear in Silicon Valley: the CEO who picks up the stack of newspapers outside the front door, the founder who wipes the counters. With these actions, the leaders demonstrate their egalitarian natures - we're all in this together and none of us are above the menial tasks that need to get done. #Quote by Eric Schmidt
Newspapers quotes by Mike Rosen
#131. The left's obsession with corporations as a spawn of evil is pathological paranoia. A corporation is just one form of organizing a private business enterprise for purposes of limiting personal liability, issuing stock, filing financial reports and paying taxes. Other forms include partnerships and sole proprietorships. Are they less evil? You buy your groceries from corporations, your cars, newspapers, cellphones, clothing and exercise equipment. Your parents and children work for corporations. Are they evil? #Quote by Mike Rosen
Newspapers quotes by Italo Calvino
#132. Every day I tell myself that reading newspapers is a waste of time, but then ... I cannot do without them. They are like a drug. #Quote by Italo Calvino

Newspapers quotes by Sarah Lacy
#134. Stop looking at the Web as merely a display opportunity and not a way to interact. That does not create a new business model, it just shifts one that isn't growing and is outdated. The reason sites like Google are stealing advertisers from daily newspapers is not because Google has more eyeballs. It's because Google used the interactivity of the Web to deliver a new, better way to advertise. #Quote by Sarah Lacy
Newspapers quotes by Ken Livingstone
#135. I think democracy's undermined when those who own newspapers fill them with trivia rather than real issues. #Quote by Ken Livingstone
Newspapers quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#136. I would rather have newspapers without a government than a government without newspapers. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Newspapers quotes by John Irving
#137. Newspapers are a bad habit, the reading equivalent of junk food. What happens to me is that I seize upon an issue in the news - the issue is the moral/philosophical, political/intellectual equivalent of a cheeseburger with everything on it; but for the duration of my interest in it, all my other interests are consumed by it, and whatever appetites and capacities I may have had for detachment and reflection are suddenly subordinate to this cheeseburger in my life! I offer this as self-criticism; but what it means to be "political" is that you welcome these obsessions with cheeseburgers - at great cost to the rest of your life. #Quote by John Irving
Newspapers quotes by James D. Bradley
#138. Iwo Jima had become the number-one front-page story in newspapers across the country. And it had become the most heavily covered, written-about battle in World War II. #Quote by James D. Bradley
Newspapers quotes by Louise Erdrich
#139. My grandfather was a persuasive man who made friends with people at every level of influence. In order to fight against our tribe's termination, he went to newspapers and politicians and urged them to advocate for our tribe in Washington. He also supported his family through the Depression as a truck farmer. #Quote by Louise Erdrich

#141. The newspapers! Sir, they are the most villainous - licentious - abominable - infernal - Not that I ever read them - no - I make it a rule never to look into a newspaper. #Quote by Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Newspapers quotes by Thomas Kretschmann
#142. My reputation was a bit exaggerated. Things were written in newspapers, then copied, then doubled. One of the reasons why I never disclaimed that, was because I found it amusing. But I also constructed such an image for myself in order to gain more of a private life. #Quote by Thomas Kretschmann
Newspapers quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton

Newspapers quotes by Kevin Brooks
#144. You reach a certain age when reality grabs you by the scruff of the neck and shouts in your face:"Hey, look, this is what life is." And you have to open your eyes and look at it, listen to it, smell it: people who don't like you, things you don't want to do, things that hurt, things that scare you, questions without answers, feelings you don't understand, feelings you don't want but have no control over.
Reality.
When you gradually come to realise that all that stuff in books, films, television, magazines, newspapers, comics - it's all rubbish. It's got nothing to do with anything. It's all made up. It doesn't happen like that. It's not real. It means nothing. Reality is what you see when you look out of the window of a bus: dour faces, sad and temporary lives, millions of cars, metal, bricks, glass, rain, cruel laughter, ugliness, dirt, bad teeth, crippled pigeons, little kids in pushchairs who've already forgotten how to smile ... #Quote by Kevin Brooks
Newspapers quotes by William R. Cutrer
#145. The idea is to intentionally design a relaxing environment that is off-limits to many of the stresses and distractions that
define your waking hours. Begin with aesthetics, making an effort to keep your bedroom neat and attractive. In other words, aim for Southern Living in your private quarters even if the rest of your house looks like Mechanics Weekly. Then begin to work on behaviors, keeping your bedroom off-limits to activities other than sleeping, relaxing, or making love. Nix the stacks of unpaid bills, piles of dirty laundry, collections of unread newspapers, and file folders from the office. By fostering this kind of space, seemingly untouched by the nitty gritty of daily life, you will have created a quiet haven where-by simply stepping inside and closing the door behind you-you can take a mini-vacation from stress. This time can then be used to pray, to relax, or to lavish your undivided romantic attentions on your husband. #Quote by William R. Cutrer
Newspapers quotes by Henrik Ibsen
#146. Ghosts! […] I almost think we are all of us ghosts. It is not only what we have inherited from our father and mother that 'walks' in us. It is all sorts of dead ideas, and lifeless old beliefs, and so forth. They have no vitality, but they cling to us all the same, and we cannot shake them off. Whenever I take up a newspaper, I seem to see ghosts gliding between the lines. There must be ghosts all the country over, as thick as the sands of the sea. And then we are, one and all, so pitifully afraid of the light. #Quote by Henrik Ibsen
Newspapers quotes by Albert Einstein
#147. In two weeks the sheeplike masses of any country can be worked up by the newspapers into such a state of excited fury that men are prepared to put on uniforms and kill and be killed, for the sake of the sordid ends of a few interested parties. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Newspapers quotes by Henry Miller

Newspapers quotes by Kekla Magoon

Newspapers quotes by Allan Bloom

Newspapers quotes by Alyxandra Harvey
#154. We have treaties with some vampire tribes. And we also have several more departments, at the academy and at the college. And in the League at large as well. Things like Tech and Supernatural Studies."
"What about Vampire Relations?" I asked. Especially with the local newspapers now reporting on the increase in missing persons. Apparently the last time something like this happened was in the eighties. "We need that. I could totally do that."

I shook my head. "I knew this place was all wrong. #Quote by Alyxandra Harvey

Newspapers quotes by Tad R. Callister
#157. Part of the human experience is to confront temptation. No one escapes. It is omnipresent. It is both externally driven and internally prompted. It is like the enemy that attacks from all sides. It boldly assaults us in television shows, movies, billboards, and newspapers in the name of entertainment or free speech. It walks down our streets and sits in our offices in the name of fashion. It drives our roads in the name of style. It represents itself as political correctness or business necessity. It claims moral sanction under the guise of free choice. On occasion it roars like thunder; on others it whispers in subtle, soothing tones. With chameleon-like skill it camouflages its ever-present nature, but it is there
always there. #Quote by Tad R. Callister
Newspapers quotes by George Orwell
#158. There was a whole chain of separate departments dealing with proletarian literature, music, drama and entertainment generally. Here were produced rubbishy newspapers containing almost nothing except sport, crime and astrology, sensational five-cent novelettes, films oozing with sex, and sentimental songs ... #Quote by George Orwell
Newspapers quotes by John C. Bogle

Newspapers quotes by June Lockhart
#160. It was a show where you were given a quote out of current events and you had to identify who said it. I was reading eight newspapers a day and had compiled a file of about 300 quotes. I really had to do my research. The White House press didn't have to bone up on any of it. #Quote by June Lockhart
Newspapers quotes by Erik Larson
#161. America, secure in its fortress of neutrality, watched the war at a remove and found it all unfathomable. Undersecretary of State Robert Lansing, number two man in the State Department, tried to put this phenomenon into words in a private memorandum. "It is difficult, if not impossible, for us here in the United States to appreciate in all its fullness the great European War," he wrote. "We have come to read almost with indifference of vast military operations, of battle lines extending for hundreds of miles, of the thousands of dying men, of the millions suffering all manner of privation, of the wide-spread waste and destruction." The nation had become inured to it all, he wrote. "The slaughter of a thousand men between the trenches in northern France or of another thousand on a foundering cruiser has become commonplace. We read the headlines in the newspapers and let it go at that. The details have lost their interest. #Quote by Erik Larson
Newspapers quotes by Daniel Patrick Moynihan
#162. Liberty lives in protest and democracy prospers under conditions of change. When we travel about the world and come to a country whose newspapers are filled with bad news we feel that liberty lives in that land. When we come to a country whose newspapers are filled with good news, we feel differently. #Quote by Daniel Patrick Moynihan
Newspapers quotes by Henry Fielding

Newspapers quotes by Woody Allen

Christ, if I have to eat nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day to live, I don't wanna live. I hate goddamn fruits and vegetables. And your omega 3's, and the treadmill, and the cardiogram, and the mammogram, and the pelvic sonogram, and oh my god the-the-the colonoscopy, and with it all the day still comes where they put you in a box, and its on to the next generation of idiots, who'll also tell you all about life and define for you what's appropriate.

Publish newspapers and blogs, stage plays and puppet shows, to mock what you see as the absurdity of life without God, of life without your Supreme Blankie! #Quote by Charb
Newspapers quotes by Robert E.      Lee
#173. Why, sir, in the beginning we appointed all our worst generals to command the armies, and all our best generals to edit the newspapers. As you know, I have planned some campaigns and quite a number of battles. I have given the work all the care and thought I could, and sometimes, when my plans were completed, as far as I could see, they seemed to be perfect. But when I have fought them through, I have discovered defects and occasionally wondered I did not see some of the defects in advance. When it was all over, I found by reading a newspaper that these best editor generals saw all the defects plainly from the start. Unfortunately, they did not communicate their knowledge to me until it was too late." Then, after a pause, he added, with a beautiful, grave expression I can never forget: "I have no ambition but to serve the Confederacy, and do all I can to win our independence. I an willing to serve in any capacity to which the authorities may assign me. I have done the best I could in the field, and have not succeeded as I could wish. I am willing to yield my place to these best generals, and I will do my best for the cause in editing a newspaper."

In the same strain he once remarked to one of his generals: "Even as poor a soldier as I am can generally discover mistakes after it is all over. But if I could only induce these wise gentlemen who see them so clearly beforehand to communicate with me in advance, instead of waiting until the evil has come upon us, to let #Quote by Robert E. Lee
Newspapers quotes by Niall Ferguson
#174. Investors tended to infer future changes in fiscal and monetary policy from political events, which were regularly reported in private correspondence, in newspapers and by telegraph agencies. Among the most influential bases for their inferences were three assumptions: that any war would disrupt trade and hence lower tax revenues for all governments; that direct involvement in war would increase a state's expenditure as well as reducing its tax revenues, leading to substantial new borrowings; and that the impact of war on the private sector would make it hard for monetary authorities in combatant countries to maintain the convertibility of paper banknotes into gold, thereby increasing the risk of inflation. #Quote by Niall Ferguson
Newspapers quotes by Fred Durst
#175. When you're a kid, you see your parents reading the newspaper and you're like, 'God, why are they reading the newspaper?' When you're young, you're not reading the newspaper. But there comes a time in your life when the newspaper's cool. #Quote by Fred Durst
Newspapers quotes by Rupert Murdoch

Newspapers quotes by Daniel Woodrell

Newspapers quotes by Jodi Picoult

Newspapers quotes by Gavin Extence
#186. They called our arrangement a 'Death Pact' - but, really, that's not a phrase that tells you anything important. It's just the kind of phrase that sells newspapers. For us, it was never about death. It was about life. Knowing that there was a way out, that his suffering was not going to become unendurable ( ... ). #Quote by Gavin Extence
Newspapers quotes by Dennis Prager
#187. Universities are the most anti-Israel mainstream institutions in America. And Westerns journalists nearly always use militant or gunman to describe Islamist terrorists. For Reuters, BBC, the Associated Press, CNN, and nearly all newspapers, it violates moral neutrality to label even a man attempting to smash a bomb-laden car into a nightclub a terrorist. #Quote by Dennis Prager
Newspapers quotes by Abbie Cornish
#188. I didn't actually know what a vegetarian was until I was 13 years old. I know in this day and age it's hard to believe that, but I think because I grew up on a farm, I wasn't indulged in magazines, newspapers, Internet, television. And so, for some reason, I was never exposed to what a vegetarian was. #Quote by Abbie Cornish
Newspapers quotes by Joseph Mitchell
#189. It is perhaps an ugly comment on the American press, but the function of the interviewer on most newspapers is to entertain, not to shed light. . . . An interviewer soon begins to judge public figures on the basis of their entertainment value, overlooking their true importance. It is not easy to get an interview with Professor Franz Boas, the greatest anthropologist in the world, across a city desk, but a mild interview with Oom the Omnipotent will hit the bottom of page one under a two-column head. . . . It is safe to write accurately only about the nuts and bums. When a public figure does something ridiculous reporters may then write about him accurately. #Quote by Joseph Mitchell
Newspapers quotes by Al Capone
#190. Every time a boy falls off a tricycle, every time a black cat has gray kittens, every time someone stubs a toe, every time there's a murder or a fire or the marines land in Nicaragua, the police and the newspapers holler 'get Capone.' #Quote by Al Capone
Newspapers quotes by Naomi Campbell
#191. In fact, I don't read newspapers any longer. #Quote by Naomi Campbell
Newspapers quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#192. Consider the iatrogenics of newspapers. They need to fill their pages every day with a set of news items - particularly those news items also dealt with by other newspapers. But to do things right, they ought to learn to keep silent in the absence of news of significance. Newspapers should be of two-line length on some days, two hundred pages on others - in proportion with the intensity of the signal. But of course they want to make money and need to sell us junk food. And junk food is iatrogenic. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Newspapers quotes by Russell Brand
#193. I enjoyed having a reputation as being wild, but these days I try not to worry about what people think in the privacy of their own brain or what they write in the bizarre publicity of their own newspapers, because all of those things are meaningless. #Quote by Russell Brand
Newspapers quotes by Jean Anouilh
#194. Have you noticed that life, with murders and catastrophes and fabulous inheritances, happens almost exclusively in newspapers? #Quote by Jean Anouilh
Newspapers quotes by Will Cuppy
#195. I do not travel. I am not much of an extrovert, and I'm not much interested in extroverted objects. I do not care for the 'ideas' of novelists. Novels are wonderful, of course, but I prefer newspapers. #Quote by Will Cuppy
Newspapers quotes by Will Self
#196. Old age is, it occurs to Busner as he lies stranded on his side staring at the clock radio, a form of institutionalisation
it deprives you of your identity and supplies another, simpler one, it takes away your clothing and issues you with a uniform of slack-waisted trousers, threadbare jackets and moth-eaten cardigans, togs that are either coming from or going to charity shops. This done, it commits you to a realm at once confined and unbounded, an atrophying circuit of corridors that connect strip-lit and overheating rooms where you fade away your days reading day-old newspapers and specialist magazines
albeit not ones relating to the specialty that awaits you. #Quote by Will Self
Newspapers quotes by Russell Baker
#197. The American press has the blues. Too many authorities have assured it that its days are numbered, too many good newspapers are in ruins. #Quote by Russell Baker
Newspapers quotes by George Packer
#198. What the Web has never figured out is how to pay for reporting, which, with the collapse of print newspapers, is in desperately short supply, and without which even the most prolific commenters will someday run out of things to say. #Quote by George Packer
Newspapers quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
#199. And art has come to be a spectator of itself, the way it reacts, what newspapers write about it; the artist is a performer. That is how it is. Art does not know a beyond, science does not know a beyond, religion does not know a beyond, not anymore. Our world is enclosed around itself, enclosed around us, and there is no way out of it. #Quote by Karl Ove Knausgaard
Newspapers quotes by Jacob Ruppert
#200. The first intimation I had that the Yankees were for sale was through an item to that effect in the newspapers. The idea instantly occurred to me that here was a prospect to become interested in a major-league club at home. #Quote by Jacob Ruppert
