Paper Backed Wood quotes by Ayn Rand
#1. Whenever destroyers appear among men, they start by destroying money, for money is men's protection and the base of a moral existence. Destroyers seize gold and leave to its owners a counterfeit pile of paper. This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an arbitrary setter of values. Gold was an objective value, an equivalent of wealth produced. Paper is a mortgage on wealth that does not exist, backed by a gun aimed at those who are expected to produce it. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Paper Backed Wood quotes by N.D. Wilson
#2. Cyrus walked straight to the tallest crack of light, a seam between two doors. They were locked, but they were also thin and old, and they bent a little with pressure from his shoulder.

He backed up.

"Try one of Skelton's keys," said Antigone. "Is there a keyhole?"

"Nope." Cyrus threw himself against the doors. Wood popped, but he bounced back. "I can break it."

"You mean a rib? Maybe your shoulder?" Antigone adjusted her grip, propping Horace in front of her.

"There's just one little bolt," said Cyrus. "And it's set in old wood." He paused. What was he hearing? Voices. Shouting. "You hear that?" he asked.

Antigone nodded. "They don't sound happy."

This time, Cyrus used his foot. The wood splintered, and the two doors wobbled open onto a world of emerald and sunlight. #Quote by N.D. Wilson
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Sylvia Plath
#3. At the local coffee-shop, hunched in one of the secretive, high-backed booths with hundreds of peoples' names gouged into the wood, we drank cup after cup of black coffee and talked frankly about sex. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Judith McNaught
#4. When at last he finally hooked one, despite Elizabeth's best efforts to prevent it, she scrambled to her feet and backed up a step. "You-you're hurting it!" she cried as he pulled the hook from its mouth.
"Hurting what? The fish?" he asked in disbelief.
"Nonsense," said he, looking at her as if she was daft, then he tossed the fish on the bank.
"It can't breathe, I tell you!" she wailed, her eyes fixed on the flapping fish.
"It doesn't need to breathe," he retorted. "We're going to eat it for lunch."
"I certainly won't!" she cried, managing to look at him as if he were a cold-blooded murderer.
"Lady Cameron," he said sternly, "am I to believe you've never eaten a fish?"
"Well, of course I have."
"And where do you think the fish you've eaten came from?" he continued with irate logic.
"It came from a nice tidy package wrapped in paper," Elizabeth announced with a vacuous look. "They come in nice, tidy paper wrapping."
"Well, they weren't born in that tidy paper," he replied, and Elizabeth had a dreadful time hiding her admiration for his patience as well as for the firm tone he was finally taking with her. He was not, as she had originally thought, a fool or a namby-pamby. "Before that," he persisted, "where was the fish? How did that fish get to the market in the first place?"
Elizabeth gave her head a haughty toss, glanced sympathetically at the flapping fish, then gazed at him with haughty condemnation in her #Quote by Judith McNaught
Paper Backed Wood quotes by David Ignatius
#5. Make the financial industry pay for its mistakes. That's the idea behind the best of the Obama administration's reform proposals: If banks issue securities backed by mortgages, say, then require them to hold some of that paper so that they will bear some of the losses. #Quote by David Ignatius
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Cassandra Clare
#6. Goodness, that stuff rips like paper," she exclaimed, reaching to pull her tank top off. She was halfway through the action when the door opened and Alec walked into the room.
"Izzy, are you - " he began. His eyes flew wide, and he backed up fast enough to smack his head into the wall behind him. "What is he doing here?"
Isabelle tugged her tank top back down and glared at her brother. "You don't knock now?"
"It - It's my bedroom!" Alec spluttered. He seemed to be deliberately trying not to look at Izzy and Simon, who were indeed in a very compromising position. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Yitzhak Rabin
#7. It is not worth the paper it is written on unless it is backed by the kind of force that will make the other side consider the penalties too heavy to break the agreement. #Quote by Yitzhak Rabin
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Anne Frank
#8. Paper has more patience than people.' I thought of this saying on one of those days when I was feeling a little depressed and was sitting at home with my chin in my hands, bored and listless, wondering whether to stay in or go out. I finally stayed where I was, brooding. Yes, paper does have more patience, and since I'm not planning to let anyone else read this stiff-backed notebook grandly referred to as a 'diary', unless I should ever find a real friend, it probably won't make a bit of difference. #Quote by Anne Frank
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Joseph P. Kauffman
#9. If we want a healthy economy, we need the issuing of money to return to the government and not to be a power of private banks. We need money backed by real valuable goods, not pieces of paper that must be paid back at interest. Money is supposed to benefit humanity, not make us its servant. #Quote by Joseph P. Kauffman
Paper Backed Wood quotes by P.G. Wodehouse
#10. My Aunt Dahlia, who runs a woman's paper called Milady's Boudoir, had recently backed me into a corner and made me promise to write her a few words for her "Husbands and Brothers" page on "What the Well-Dressed Man is Wearing". I believe in encouraging aunts, when deserving; and, as there are many worse eggs than her knocking about the metrop, I had consented blithely. But I give you my honest word that if I had had the foggiest notion of what I was letting myself in for, not even a nephew's devotion would have kept me from giving her the raspberry. A deuce of a job it had been, taxing the physique to the utmost. I don't wonder now that all these author blokes have bald heads and faces like birds who have suffered. #Quote by P.G. Wodehouse
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#11. when I look at people fighting with ammunition and weapons of all kind I ponder within me;somehow as a cynic. Ammunition's and weapons are good for war; Yes,they are better necessities to winning battle but the best choice of weapons are neither ammunition nor the strength of a battalion of army but wisdom; a pen on a paper backed by a great mind #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Fannie Flagg
#12. Our car would've burned up too, but Michael, who is only twelve, got in it and backed it away. I climbed in with him and noticed some of my school books in the car, so I took them out and threw them in the fire. I figured it would save me from doing a lot of homework, but unfortunately under the headline in the paper the next day that said HARPER'S MALT SHOP BURNS TO THE GROUND IN TRAGIC FIRE it also said that seen throwing her school books into the fire was little Daisy Fay Harper. Rat's foot! No wonder Hollywood stars hate reporters, and after all that some busybody do-gooder has already bought me a new set of books. #Quote by Fannie Flagg
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Isak Dinesen
#13. The propaganda that has here reached such a state of perfection covers all aspects of existence and constantly surprises one by finding new fields of endeavor. But once a new generation has grown up that has wholly emancipated itself from the tradition of a union between word and fact, the substance of the word will have been juggled out of it, and it will be like paper money which is nowhere backed by gold, and the propaganda itself will have lost its savor. "And with what shall it be salted? It will no longer be good for anything ... "(Matthew 5:13) #Quote by Isak Dinesen
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Lillianna Blake
#14. list of yours," he said with a smile. "That's private." I was seriously annoyed now. "Absolutely not - no deal," I said, walking away. Max reached out and snatched the paper towel from my hand. When I felt it go, I gasped. "Max!" I screamed and backed #Quote by Lillianna Blake

Paper Backed Wood quotes by Garrison Keillor
#16. A person cannot coast along in old destructive habits year after year and accept whatever comes along. A person must stand up on her own two legs and walk. Get off the bus and go get on another. Climb out of the ditch and cross the road. Find the road that s where you want to go ... The only sermon that counts is the one that is formed by our actions. She would quit drinking and thereby show Kyle life is what you make it. A person can grab hold of her life and change things for the better. This happens all the time. We are not chips of wood drifting down the stream of time. We have oars. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Geoffrey Wood
#17. Faith is an act whereby they learn their God. #Quote by Geoffrey Wood
Paper Backed Wood quotes by John Marsden
#18. And suddenly they came out of the woodwork. I don't actually know what that expression means. What come out of the wood work? Cockroaches maybe. Mice? Are these rhetorical questions, like I just learned about on one of my rare visits to school? Was that a rhetorical question? Is it a paradox when you ask rhetorically if a rhetorical question is a rhetorical question? I think I'd better stop before I get a headache. #Quote by John Marsden
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Wally Wood
#19. Never draw anything you can copy, never copy anything you can trace, never trace anything you can cut out and paste up. #Quote by Wally Wood
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Louise Erdrich
#20. I tried to get away from him, to get to that door, but instead I backed up against the wall and was stuck there in that white, white room. #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Paper Backed Wood quotes by James Berryman
#21. Whatever I did, even backed by Sting's cash and moral support, it turned to shit. I had reached the end of the line. I became a statistic. Jim Berryman, actor, comedian, bookie and lounge-lizard, was on the dole! #Quote by James Berryman
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Ken Liu
#22. At this moment, in this place, the shifting action potential in my neurons cascade into certain arrangements, patterns, thoughts; they flow down my spine, branch into my arms, my fingers, until muscles twitch and thought is translated into motion; mechanical levers are pressed; electrons are rearranged; marks are made on paper.

At another time, in another place, light strikes the marks, reflects into a pair of high-precision optical instruments sculpted by nature after billions of years of random mutations; upside-down images are formed against two screens made up of millions of light-sensitive cells, which translate light into electrical pulses that go up the optic nerves, cross the chiasm, down the optic tracts, and into the visual cortex, where the pulses are reassembled into letters, punctuation marks, words, sentences, vehicles, tenors, thoughts.

The entire system seems fragile, preposterous, science fictional. #Quote by Ken Liu
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Daryl Gregory
#23. Just curious? That's a bullshit phrase."
"It's a simple question. How long - "
"No, it's a signal that bullshit is about to follow. It's the hat that bullshit puts on before it goes out to get the paper. #Quote by Daryl Gregory
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Amanda Carlson
#24. Luke picked up a piece of paper lying on the seat. "Camden Hills Avenue in the Badlands Golf Club." Luke chuckled. "Going to find a criminal in the Badlands. It kind of has an ironic ring to it. #Quote by Amanda Carlson
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Gillian Flynn
#25. Back when people read things on paper, #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Christopher Meloni
#26. It's always been kind of weird to me because when you give someone an autograph, you're looking down at a piece of paper and once you sign it the person moves on. #Quote by Christopher Meloni
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Jason Carter
#27. I've only read a few chapters of this book, Trumpet Blast Warning but it's amazing. All of his statements are backed up by original quotes & references from top politicians, the media, etc, so you can check for yourselves & discover this is not a conspiracy theory about world government, it's all backed by facts! All Christians, especially pastors & prayer groups really should read this book. Many thanks to Jason Carter for sending me a copy! #Quote by Jason Carter
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Chani Lynn Feener
#28. We all know how it says it's going to end, Dreamer, but no one knows for sure. That's up to you, and your friends. It is the Four who shall decide whether or not it comes true, not a bunch of words written on a piece of paper. Not even," he turned the book around so that its insides were facing her, "if it's written in on very old, very large, dusty paper. #Quote by Chani Lynn Feener
Paper Backed Wood quotes by James E. Lovelock
#29. Perhaps our and Gaia's greatest error was the conscious abuse of fire. Cooking meat over a wood fire may have been acceptable, but the deliberate destruction of whole ecosystems by fire merely to drive out the animals within was surely our first great sin against the living Earth. It has haunted us ever since and combustion could now be our auto da fé, and the cause of our extinction. #Quote by James E. Lovelock
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#30. There can be no intellectual, spiritual, or emotional life without the substratum of memory. Without cognition and awareness of beauty and appreciation of our limited time on planet Earth, humankind's sojourn would be a colorless collage composed of the base acts of a biological mass endeavoring merely to survive. Without the ability to recall striking memories, our emotional life would be stillborn. Absent authentic memories, our life struggles would seem purposeless: human beings would exhibit no capacity to reflect awe when witnessing the bounty of nature's plenitude or be able to take in and express intense reverence for all that is sacred. Without memory, there would not be a dais to support faith or any ability to imagine a God; the concepts of good and evil would be nonexistent; and the past and the future would become less relevant than the choice between salt or pepper, and paper or plastic. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Ashim Shanker
#31. In my mind, I could sense their roots under the soil, creeping in helical tangles of ever-increasing complexity outward and in all directions - out beyond the perimeter of the Helsingør Wood, out below Yami's Under City, out along the banks of the river, out to the nearest coast and thereupon out into the sea; the roots crept down further along the continental shelf, downward into the abysses, downward into the ocean floor, burrowing under the corals and under trenches, and then back up again to sprout in the darkened forest on a foreign continent: all the trees of the world now had conjoined roots, for they were now of one conjoined consciousness! #Quote by Ashim Shanker
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Bernie Sanders
#32. If you look at the newspapers here - the Washington papers - most of the discussion deals with campaign gossip. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Thomas Merton
#33. Learn how to meditate on paper. Drawing and writing are forms of meditation. Learn how to contemplate works of art. Learn how to pray in the streets or in the country. Know how to meditate not only when you have a book in your hand but when you are waiting for a bus or riding in a train. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Cynthia Kadohata
#34. I hate thinking about writer's block! I don't have writer's block much, knock on wood, but if I do, I think it's usually because I haven't done enough research and am therefore unable to create a fully realized world. #Quote by Cynthia Kadohata
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#35. This makeover would make piercings and tattoos and brandings look so lame, all those little fashion revolts so safe that they themselves only become fashionable. Those little paper tiger attempts to reject looking good that only end up reinforcing it. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Paper Backed Wood quotes by Maggie Kelley
#36. Call me when you grow up and decide you can handle a real relationship instead of some perfect-on-paper, passionless dead-zone." He #Quote by Maggie Kelley
