Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Hanif Kureishi
#1. How do I like to write? withe a soft pencil and a hard dick, not the other way round.
I like the paper of all kinds : creamy, white, yellow, thick, thin, lined, plain. In my cupboard I have at least fifty notebooks, each of which, at the time of purchase, filled me with excitement of what might be said of new thoughts discovered ... and then-nothing. #Quote by Hanif Kureishi
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Bobby Farrelly
#2. Writing is very difficult. You have 120 pages of blank paper and it's like, "Go fill that up with some funny stuff," and that's challenging. #Quote by Bobby Farrelly
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Holly Bourne
#3. Writing's much more romantic when its pen and ink and paper. It's... More timeless. and worthwhile. Think about it. There are so many words gushing out into the universe these days. All digitally. All in Comic Sans or Times New Roman. Silly Websites. Stupid news stories digitally uploaded to a 24-hour channel. Where's all this writing going? Who's keeping a note of it all? Who's in charge of deciding what's worthwhile and what isn't? But back then... Back then, if someone wanted to write something they had to buy paper. Buy it! And ink. And a pen. And they couldn't waste too many sheets cos it was expensive. So when people wrote, they wrote because it was worthwhile... not just because they had some half-baked idea and they wanted to pointlessly prove their existence by sharing it on some bloody social networking site. #Quote by Holly Bourne
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Ernst Junger
#4. Often I have the impression that I am writing on paper that is already browning in the licks of the flames. #Quote by Ernst Junger
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Glenn Beck
#5. Anyone who claims that weapons like semi-automatics are so modern and unique that the Second Amendment doesn't apply to them would also have to believe that the First Amendment protects only writing done with quill pens on parchment paper, since those were the norm back then. How could we expect the Founders to have ever imagined the world we live in today? #Quote by Glenn Beck
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#6. I was always fascinated by the fact that you could take paper and ink and create worlds, images, characters. It seemed like magic. #Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Nayyirah Waheed
#7. Remember,
you were a writer
you ever
pen to paper.
just because you were not writing
does not mean you were not writing
internally. #Quote by Nayyirah Waheed
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Colette
#8. To write is to pour one's innermost self passionately upon the tempting paper, at such frantic speed that sometimes one's hand struggles and rebels, overdriven by the impatient god which guides it - and to find, next day, in place of the golden bough that bloomed miraculously in that dazzling hour, a withered bramble and a stunted flower. #Quote by Colette
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Owen Wilson
#9. Acting is more fun than writing. Writing is harder, more like having a term paper. #Quote by Owen Wilson
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by S.A. Bodeen
#10. It's easier to revise lousy writing than to revise a blank sheet of paper. #Quote by S.A. Bodeen
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by C.E.M. Joad
#11. The secret of successful journalism is to make your readers so angry they will write half your paper for you. #Quote by C.E.M. Joad
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Fennel Hudson
#12. Putting pen to paper without first deciding the route and pace at which to scribe is like setting off on a bicycle without first checking the tyres. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Lars Von Trier
#13. It's the opening of Manderlay in Cannes, and I'm sitting next to this guy who's writing for a tiny fictitious French paper called On the Sunny Side, and he's writing a review on the film, and he's obviously bored. Then he tells me about all the cars he owns, and how rich he is, and all these things. So, at a certain point, he says, "So what do you do?" Then I take out this very strange hammer we have in the Danish building business, and I say, "I kill." And then I kill him. It is as stupid as it sounds. #Quote by Lars Von Trier
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#14. You've got to sell your heart, your strongest reactions, not the little minor things that only touch you lightly, the little experiences that you might tell at dinner. This is especially true when you begin to write, when you have not yet developed the tricks of interesting people on paper, when you have none of the technique which it takes time to learn. When, in short, you have only your emotions to sell. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Patricia Reilly Giff
#15. I want to see children curled up with books, finding an awareness of themselves as they discover other people's thoughts. #Quote by Patricia Reilly Giff
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Omari Hardwick
#16. I took to writing as my medicine to help me stay afloat in acting career journey. I wrote about me breaking hearts, and my heart being broken. I wrote about my views whether they were liberal or conservative. I wrote about everything. I wrote about my life. When I did not have paper coming in as green backs, I'd use random pieces of paper for stories. It was like, I got no money, but I have paper to write. So I wrote. #Quote by Omari Hardwick
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Felix J. Palma
#17. He was back at the point of departure, at the place that filled writers with dread and excitement, for this was where they must decide which new story to tackle of the many floating in the air, which plot to bind themselves to for a lengthy period; and they had to choose carefully, study each option calmly ... because there were dangerous stories, stories that resisted being inhabited, and stories that pulled you apart while you were writing them ... At that moment, before reverently committing the first word to paper, he could write anything he wanted, and this fired his blood with a powerful sense of freedom, as wonderful as it was fleeting, for he knew it would vanish the moment he chose one story and sacrificed all the others. #Quote by Felix J. Palma
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Robert Marc Friedman
#18. The essential key for writing is to write regularly - like it or not - great ideas come often by writing; releasing the subconscious - waiting for inspiration and ideas will not work, but it does help to have a notebook with you all the time for sudden brainstorms or inspiration. #Quote by Robert Marc Friedman
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by M. Ward
#19. If I'm writing ... even a piece of a song ... I write it down. If it still resonates six months down the line, a year, even five, those are the ones you put in your bag and you take to the studio. You come to realize, the ones that don't make it, they were only meant to live for that moment in your notebook or on the 4-track-and plenty of songs never get any farther than the 4-track. #Quote by M. Ward
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Nas
#20. I used to carry a notebook to the studio. I don't do that no more 'cause I don't have the time to write anywhere but right there in the studio on the spot. So when you hear my stuff, know that I wrote it in the studio. #Quote by Nas
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Jennifer James
#21. When we hold onto the negative in ourselves it comes with endless guilt. We hold onto a lifetime of floating visions and regrets about what we should have done or should have become. Conscience recognizes wrong and tries to atone. But guilt turns into resentment. Conscience brings us closer to each other; guilt drives us apart. Create a new feeling. Every time guilt settles in your stomach, write "I forgive" on a piece of paper. Send it up the chimney, tear it up and flush it, put it in the garbage. Don't eat it. #Quote by Jennifer James
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Ali Shaw
#22. After a long while he sat upright with great effort, exhaled a sigh and reached for a clean sheet of lined paper, smoothing it out on the desk. He unscrewed the lid of his fountain pen, laid it perpendicular to his paper, and began to write. Often he compared his writing to white water. He had only to leap in to be dragged away on its rapids, thrown this way and that with his own will rendered impotent. While writing he found the words came from the muscles in his hands, the feel of the shaft of his pen, the locked joint of his elbow. the scratching noise of the nib marking paper and, underneath all that, some coordinating impulse in his guts. Certainly not from his mind. #Quote by Ali Shaw
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Anne Lamott
#23. For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Anne Fadiman
#24. Muses are fickle, and many a writer, peering into the voice, has escaped paralysis by ascribing the creative responsibility to a talisman: a lucky charm, a brand of paper, but most often a writing instrument. Am I writing well? Thank my pen. Am I writing badly? Don't blame me blame my pen. By such displacements does the fearful imagination defend itself. #Quote by Anne Fadiman
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by R.M. Engelhardt
#25. What is hell to a writer? Hell is being too busy to find the time to write or being unable to find the inspiration. Hell is suddenly finding the words but being away from your notebook or typewriter. Hell is when the verses slip away through your fingers and they never return again. #Quote by R.M. Engelhardt
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Wole Soyinka
#26. I know there are writers who get up every morning and sit by their typewriter or word processor or pad of paper and wait to write. I don't function that way. I go through a long period of gestation before I'm even ready to write. #Quote by Wole Soyinka
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Clay Aiken
#27. When I was a kid, the punishment I disliked the most was writing sentences. My mother loved to make me record my transgressions
always a minimum of five hundred times
and she even bought special spiral notebooks for me to fill up ... No matter how many notebooks I went through, there was always another one waiting in the kitchen drawer. #Quote by Clay Aiken
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Leslie Fiedler
#28. I've been writing about James Fenimore Cooper. He was not a writer. Here was a man who was 30 years old and had never put anything more than his signature on paper. #Quote by Leslie Fiedler
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Ellen Wittlinger
#29. That's what I love about writing. Once you get the words down on paper, in print, they start to make sense. It's like you don't know what you think until it dribbles from your brain down your arm and into your hand and out through your fingers and shows up on the computer screen, and you read it and realize: That's really true; I believe that. #Quote by Ellen Wittlinger
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Kiran Manral
#30. The most difficult thing to do after a life well lived is to sit down and type it all out. To start with, your fingers are old and gnarled. You can see the skin crinkled up like paper, the knobby knuckles, the veins standing up blue and aggressive and you wonder, when did your hands change, when did they stop being young and firm and definite, when did the hesitancy creep in, when did the trembling begin. Your mind sieves through memories as thick as molasses and as bitterly sweet. The words trip on your tongue but hesitate to make their way onto the page because you debate endlessly in your head about which of them you should put down in print, terrified of the permanency of the written word. Memories are the kind of elusiveness that shift, change form, and remodel themselves by the second. It is a challenge to wrestle with them, to get them to agree to be analysed, to be put down in words and encapsulated into sentences, moulded into paragraphs. As long as they are shifting, morphing into different things as the moment suits them, they aren't bound by one person's recollection of how things were, of how they happened. These are my memories.
And this was my life. And so I try to write this. I am already half way through what I am trying to put down. I have no idea who would want to read the story of my life. But I write it out, more for myself, than for anyone else who would care to read. #Quote by Kiran Manral
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Cambria Hebert
#31. I don't know what to say." My voice was raspy.
"You don't have to say anything. The medics already cleaned and took care of these."
"No," I said, still holding on to his hand. "I don't know how to thank you for saving my life. Again."
"Stop thanking me," he ground out.
"I have to," I said, looking straight into his eyes. "If you hadn't been there…" My sentence trailed away. We both knew what would've happened.
"But I was," he said softly.
"About that…" I began, wetting my lips. "Why were you there?"
"I needed to talk to you about something."
He withdrew his hand, reaching into the back pocket of his jeans and pulling out a folded piece of paper. "About this."
It was a plain white piece of paper, the kind that anyone would use in a printer. I unfolded it, noticing there was some kind of writing on the inside. When I got to the last fold, I glanced up at Holt who was wearing a very grim expression. Clearly, whatever this was wasn't good.
I pulled it open and stared down, my brain not really comprehending what it saw. I had to read the line over three times before I really got what it was saying.
My stomach clenched.
My hands trembled slightly.

You should have let her die.

"Where did you get this?" I finally asked.
"It was on my truck when I left work earlier tonight."
The paper fluttered to the floor slowly, joining the towel by my feet. "So you got this bef #Quote by Cambria Hebert
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Margaret Atwood
#32. They told us to depend on memory, because nothing written down could be relied on. The Spirit travels from mouth to mouth, not from thing to thing: books could be burnt, paper crumbles away, computers could be destroyed. Only the spirit lives forever, and the Spirit isn't a thing. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Christian Warren Freed
#33. Christian does a great job helping an aspiring writer get inspired to write and finish their book. It's easy to read and understand, and provides encouragement and specific guidance, without being too harsh or detailed on fiction writing only. If you are struggling with how to put your thoughts onto paper, give this a read and establish a rhythm for your writing. Christian's success at completing over 21 published manuscripts while leading a busy life are testament in if there is a will, there is a way. And it provides some good humor throughout."
Rachel Braynin, Sr Program Manager at Lulu Publishing #Quote by Christian Warren Freed
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Maya Angelou
#34. Putting down on paper what you have to say is an important part of writing, but the words and ideas have to be shaped and cleaned, cleaned as severely as a dog cleans a bone, cleaned until there's not a shred of anything superfluous. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Linda Boone
#35. Heart-to-heart journaling is a dialogue with God where both you and God are talking and you are recording it on paper. Heart-to-heart journaling is simply writing out your thoughts to God and what you sense to be His answer or response to you. #Quote by Linda Boone
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Natalie Goldberg
#36. Take out another notebook, pick up another pen, and just write, just write, just write. In the middle of the world, make one positive step. In the center of chaos, make one definitive act. Just write. Say yes, stay alive, be awake. Just write. Just write. Just write. #Quote by Natalie Goldberg
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by John Taylor Gatto
#37. I've noticed a fascinating phenomenon in my thirty years of teaching: schools and schooling are increasingly irrelevant to the great enterprises of the planet. No one believes anymore that scientists are trained in science classes or politicians in civics classes or poets in English classes. The truth is that schools don't really teach anything except how to obey orders. This is a great mystery to me because thousands of humane, caring people work in schools as teachers and aides and administrators, but the abstract logic of the institution overwhelms their individual contributions. Although teachers to care and do work very, very hard, the institution is psychopathic
it has no conscience. It rings a bell and the young man in the middle of writing a poem must close his notebook and move to a different cell where he must memorize that humans and monkeys derive from a common ancestor. #Quote by John Taylor Gatto
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Henry Fielding
#38. To the composition of novels and romances, nothing is necessary but paper, pens, and ink, with the manual capacity of using them. #Quote by Henry Fielding
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Virginia Woolf
#39. My mind turned by anxiety, or other cause, from its scrutiny of blank paper, is like a lost child–wandering the house, sitting on the bottom step to cry. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Helen Macdonald
#40. In two months, I think, my college job will end. In two months I will have no office, no college, no salary, no home. Everything will be different. But, I think, everything already is. When Alice dropped down the rabbit-hole into Wonderland she fell so slowly she could take things from the cupboards and bookshelves on the walls, look curiously at the maps and pictures that passed her by. In my three years as a Cambridge Fellow there'd been lectures and libraries and college meetings, supervisions, admissions interviews, late nights of paper-writing and essay-marking, and other things soaked in Cantabrian glamour: eating pheasant by candlelight at High Table while snow dashed itself in flurries against the leaded glass and carols were sung and the port was passed and the silver glittered upon dark-polished refectory tables. Now, standing on a cricket pitch with a hawk on my hand, I knew I had always been falling as I moved past these things. I could reach out and touch them, pick them off their shelves and replace them, but they were not mine. Not really ever mine. Alice, falling, looked down to see where she was headed, but everything below her was darkness. #Quote by Helen Macdonald
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Janet Fitch
#41. She was sitting cross-legged on her bed in her white kimono, writing in a notebook with an ink pen she dipped in a bottle. 'Never let a man stay the night,' she told me. 'Dawn has a way of casting a pall on any night magic.' The night magic sounded lovely. Someday I would have lovers and write a poem after. #Quote by Janet Fitch
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Chanda Hahn
#42. Mina penned the jubilant words into her blue spiral notebook with her favorite ballpoint pen. She faithfully used the same pen when writing all of her entries in the hope that #Quote by Chanda Hahn
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Ursula K. Le Guin
#43. I don't believe that a writer 'gets' (takes into the head) an 'idea' (some sort of mental object) 'from' somewhere, and then turns it into words, and writes them on paper. At least in my experience, it doesn't work that way. The stuff has to be transformed into oneself, it has to be composted, before it can grow into a story. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Michael Atiyah
#44. I'm not the sort of person who does my mathematics writing on paper. I do that at the last stage of the game. I do my mathematics in my head. I sit down for a hard day's work and I write nothing all day. I just think. And I walk up and down because that helps keep me awake, it keeps the blood circulating, and I think and think. #Quote by Michael Atiyah
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Robyn Carr
#45. Hanging on to it a little, are you? … There's a trick to letting it go, in case you're interested… You can't try. Trying is a struggle and doing is an act. You can't witness the act of trying, but you can see the results of doing. Trying brings on stress because not only do you have the problem, but now you have all this frustration with it not going away just because you want it to. It's kind of like being told not to think of pink elephants- impossible. What you have to do is stop. You say to yourself, this is over for now. I'm done for now. Take your mind to another place and concentrate on that peaceful place. Deep breaths. Go limp. Put your mind in another state. It takes practice, but it gets easier, over time… My gramma used to say, you can only feel one feeling at a time. For example, you can't feel trust and fear together. If you want to trust but you're afraid, fear is still in charge. If you trusted, there wouldn't be fear. She also used to say you have to listen to what you feel- feeling fear could be warning, right? ...
Don't make love to your problems- they'll never give you back the satisfaction you give them. And, your troubles aren't worth the paper they're written on, but that doesn't mean writing them down won't help you get a fix on 'em. And, God respects you when you work, but he loves you when you dance… she also used to say, 'if Jesus walked the earth today, he wouldn't be hanging out with Billy Graham. He'd be found with the drug addicts and pros #Quote by Robyn Carr
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Ab-Soul
#46. Everything is written in my mind, more so due to my lack of vision at this point. After years of vigorous writing, it was more of a challenge to do it without paper or sidekicks. I enjoy a good challenge. #Quote by Ab-Soul
Paper Writing Notebook quotes by Walter Isaacson
#47. It's a complex song, and it's fascinating to watch the creative process as they went back and forth and finally created it over a few months. Lennon was always my favorite Beatle. [ He laughs as Lennon stops during the first take and makes the band go back and revise a chord.] Did you hear that little detour they took? It didn't work, so they went back and started from where they were. It's so raw in this version. It actually makes the sound like mere mortals. You could actually imagine other people doing this, up to this version. Maybe not writing and conceiving it, but certainly playing it. Yet they just didn't stop. They were such perfectionists they kept it going This made a big impression on me when I was in my thirties. You could just tell how much they worked at this.
They did a bundle of work between each of these recording. They kept sending it back to make it closer to perfect.[ As he listens to the third take, he points out how instrumentation has gotten more complex.] The way we build stuff at Apple is often this way. Even the number of models we'd make of a new notebook or iPod. We would start off with a version and then begin refining and refining, doing detailed models of the design, or the buttons, or how a function operates. It's a lot of work, but in the end it just gets better, and soon it's like, " Wow, how did they do that?!? Where are the screws? #Quote by Walter Isaacson
