Phrased Text quotes by Alberto Manguel
#1. However readers make a book theirs, the end is that book and reader become one. The world that is a book is devoured by a reader who is a letter in the world's text; thus a circular metaphor is created for the endlessness of reading. We are what we read. The process by which the circle is completed is not, Whitman argued, merely an intellectual one; we read intellectually on a superficial level, grasping certain meanings and conscious of certain facts, but at the same time, invisibly, unconsciously, text and reader become intertwined, creating new levels of meaning, so that every time we cause the text to yield something by ingesting it, simultaneously something else is born beneath it that we haven't yet grasped. That is why - as Whitman believed, rewriting and re-editing his poems over and over again - no reading can ever be definitive. #Quote by Alberto Manguel
Phrased Text quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#2. Twelve-point Caslon," Jamie said, giving the text a professional glance. "I will say the leading's terrible," he added critically. "And the gutters are half what they should be. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Phrased Text quotes by Bernard Kelvin Clive
#3. I'm not out to compete with any one, I'm here to complete, by encouraging and inspiring souls through a text at a time #Quote by Bernard Kelvin Clive
Phrased Text quotes by R.F. Georgy
#4. We believe that information is an enlightening agent, but I can assure you it is not. We consume information, but we can't read. We forgot how to sit down and engage the dense layers of a text. We are so busy devouring information that we forgot how to dance with ideas. We confuse linguistic bits of data for knowledge and ideas. I can assure you, gentlemen, they are not the same. Ideas require effort and the kind of sensibility that engages the subtle layers of meaning. What the hell does information require? #Quote by R.F. Georgy
Phrased Text quotes by Nate Powell
#5. As a visual storyteller, a lot is learning what to include so you're not being redundant between images and text. #Quote by Nate Powell
Phrased Text quotes by Palmer Luckey
#6. Things like email, and Twitter, and Facebook, and text messaging - they all work reasonably well. But we use them because they're convenient, and cheap, and easy, not because they're the best way to communicate with somebody. #Quote by Palmer Luckey
Phrased Text quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#7. In the course of expounding a biblical text the Christian preacher should compare and contrast the Scripture's message with the foundational beliefs of the culture, which are usually invisible to people inside it, in order to help people understand themselves more fully. If done rightly it can lead people to say to themselves, Oh, so that's why I tend to think and feel that way. This can be one of the most liberating and catalytic steps in a person's journey to faith in Christ. #Quote by Timothy J. Keller
Phrased Text quotes by Mem Fox
#8. DO NOT attempt to bring up other people's children through your text. #Quote by Mem Fox
Phrased Text quotes by Keith Gessen
#9. She had such control of tone, in her text messages, she was the Edith Wharton of text messaging. #Quote by Keith Gessen
Phrased Text quotes by Steven Pinker
#10. The truth is, I don't know what will happen across the entire world in the coming decades, and neither does anyone else. Not everyone, though, shares my reticence. A Web search for the text string "the coming war" returns two million hits, with completions like "with Islam," "with Iran," "with China," "with Russia," "in Pakistan," "between Iran and Israel," "between India and Pakistan," "against Saudi Arabia," "on Venezuela," "in America," "within the West," "for Earth's resources," "over climate," "for water," and "with Japan" (the last dating from 1991, which you would think would make everyone a bit more humble about this kind of thing). Books with titles like The Clash of Civilizations, World on Fire, World War IV, and (my favorite) We Are Doomed boast a similar confidence. Who knows? Maybe they're right. My aim in the rest of this chapter is to point out that maybe they're wrong. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Phrased Text quotes by James Fenton
#11. The composer does not want the self-sufficiency of a richly complex text: he or she wants to feel that the text is something in need of musical setting. #Quote by James Fenton
Phrased Text quotes by Isaac Asimov
#12. Rejection slips, or form letters, however tactfully phrased, are lacerations of the soul, if not quite inventions of the devil-but there is no way around them. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Phrased Text quotes by Donald Glover
#13. Girls who used to tell me I ain't cool enough now text me pics saying you can tear this up! #Quote by Donald Glover
Phrased Text quotes by Jodi Ellen Malpas
#14. Oh, Sam, this is Kate. Kate, meet Sam.' I wave my hand between the two of them, watching as Kate turns all angelic, putting her hand out to Sam, who grins before clasping it.

'Nice to meet you, Kate.' he says smoothly, maintaining his grin and running his free hand through his mousey waves.

'You too.' She arches a brow.

She's a brazen hussy! She's flirting with him. She giggles as Sam compliments her on her wild, red hair, their hands still linked. My phone declares a text. To escape the blatant flirting exchange going on in front of me, I pick it up and open the message with one eye closed.

There better be a GOOD f**king reason for you standing me up. Someone had better be dying. I'm going out of my f**king mind, lady. NO KISS #Quote by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Phrased Text quotes by Troy Mcnally
#15. The basic building block of Evernote is a "note." It can be text, a photo, a snapshot from the web, an e-mail, a chart or graph, anything. #Quote by Troy Mcnally
Phrased Text quotes by David Byrne
#16. What's been missing from digital music sales has been the possibility of added depth. In a printed package one can only include so many images and so much text - for example - but digitally it's wide open. For the most part at the moment we get less information for slightly less money - though we could be getting a lot more. #Quote by David Byrne
Phrased Text quotes by Bob Thurber
#17. Remember ...
Keystrokes are hammer taps. Get words on paper. Don't worry about connections, character or plot. Work for an hour. Promise yourself an hour. Do nothing else but move your fingers. Make coarse shapes. Follow any emotion that pops up but never impose emotion, never fake it, and don't make up your mind or your heart ahead of time. Understand you don't know what you're doing. That's why you're here. Rough it out. Anything goes. You can decide later what any piece of text looks like, what it might mean. Don't stop. Don't question. Don't quit. Don't stop to read what you wrote. Move your fingers. You mind will have no other option but to keep up. Remember that writer's block is merely the cold marble waiting for the chisel to heat up. #Quote by Bob Thurber
Phrased Text quotes by Leon Jouhaux
#18. At Leeds the idea of an international labour organization appeared in a trade-union text which also drew attention to the danger to the working classes inherent in the existence of international capitalist competition. #Quote by Leon Jouhaux
Phrased Text quotes by Anne Carson
#19. When I contemplate the physical spaces that articulate the letters 'I love you' in a written text, I may be led to think about other spaces, for example the space that lies between 'you' in the text and you in my life. #Quote by Anne Carson
Phrased Text quotes by Jacques Derrida
#20. Let us narrow the arguments down further. In certain respects, the theme of supplementarity is certainly no more than one theme among others. It is in a chain, carried by it. Perhaps one could substitute something else for it. But it happens that this theme describes the chain itself, the being-chain of a textual chain, the structure of substitution, the articulation of desire and of language, the logic of all conceptual oppositions taken over by Rousseau ... It tells us in a text what a text is, it tells us in writing what writing it, in Rousseau's writing it tells us Jean-Jacque's desire etc ... the concept of the supplement and the theory of writing designate textuality itself in Rousseau's text in an indefinitely multiplied structure - en abyme. #Quote by Jacques Derrida
Phrased Text quotes by Mikhail Shishkin
#21. The author is the interface between earth and sky. Between life and text. It is he who can lead people out of time and into forever.

Languages is a means of resurrection. … Words must be made living not only until the cock crows but so the they cannot die anymore. I have to suck dead time out of the word and blow living time in, mouth to mouth - and force it to breathe, like a drowning victim. I have to resurrect it to eternal life with our breath. I have to use words to create a reality where there is no death.

Death can be overcome only by the word and by love. #Quote by Mikhail Shishkin
Phrased Text quotes by Michael S. Horton
#22. The point is this: The deepest distinction in Scripture is not between the Old and New Testaments but between the covenants of law and the covenants of promise that run throughout both ... Therefore, the distinction between law and gospel or between the covenant of works and the covenant of grace is not the result of imposing an alien sixteenth-century construct on the biblical text. P.17-18 #Quote by Michael S. Horton
Phrased Text quotes by Steven Greenberg
#23. Never blame a text from the Bible for your behavior. It's irresponsible. Anybody who says X, Y, and Z is in the bible - it's as if one says, 'I have no role in evaluating this. #Quote by Steven Greenberg
Phrased Text quotes by Noah Webster
#24. Education is useless without the Bible. The Bible was America's basic text book in all fields. God's Word, contained in the Bible, has furnished all necessary rules to direct our conduct. #Quote by Noah Webster
Phrased Text quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#25. Dear friends, whenever you want to understand a text of Scripture, try to read the original #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Phrased Text quotes by Jasper Fforde
#26. Well, each interpretation of an event, setting or character is unique to each of those who read it because they clothe the author's description with the memory of their own experiences. Every character they read is actually a complex amalgam of people they've met, read or seen before - far more real than it can ever be just from the text on the page. Because every reader's experiences are different, each book is unique for each reader. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Phrased Text quotes by Liz Curtis Higgs
#27. As writer Elisabeth Elliot phrased it, The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian, but the fact that I am a Christian does make me a different kind of woman. #Quote by Liz Curtis Higgs
Phrased Text quotes by Gary Kemp
#28. Don't see the point in reading ghost-written autobiographies, even though some of these published lives may fascinate me. The 'ghost' is always present, manipulating an interview into first-person singular text, and it feels like I'm reading a lie. #Quote by Gary Kemp
Phrased Text quotes by Gore Vidal
#29. God, or what have you, will not be found at the far end of a syllogism, no matter how brilliantly phrased or conceived. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Phrased Text quotes by Warren Ellis
#30. The most basic mobile phone is in fact a communications devices that shames all of science fiction, all the wrist radios and handheld communicators. Captain Kirk had to tune his fucking communicator and it couldn't text or take a photo that he could stick a nice Polaroid filter on. Science fiction didn't see the mobile phone coming. It certainly didn't see the glowing glass windows many of us carry now, where we make things amazing happen by pointing at it with our fingers like goddamn wizards. #Quote by Warren Ellis
Phrased Text quotes by Marilyn Hacker
#31. Given the devaluation of literature and of the study of foreign languages per se in the United States, as well as the preponderance of theory over text in graduate literature studies, creative writing programs keep literature courses populated. #Quote by Marilyn Hacker
Phrased Text quotes by Amos Bronson Alcott
#32. Children are illuminated text-books, breviaries of doctrine, living bodies of divinity, open always and inviting their elders to peruse the characters inscribed on the lovely leaves. #Quote by Amos Bronson Alcott
Phrased Text quotes by Jeanne Safer
#33. He talked about her in a way that only the obsessed do. It was always a pressured monologue, and it was always the same. He had to relate every detail, interpreting and seeking meaning in her every utterance or action, like a fundamentalist minutely analyzing a biblical text. #Quote by Jeanne Safer
Phrased Text quotes by Ben Lerner
#34. I usually see the word "metafiction" applied to works that draw attention to their own devices, their own artificiality, in order to mock novelistic convention and show the impossibility of capturing a reality external to the text or whatever. #Quote by Ben Lerner
Phrased Text quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#35. In an average day, you may well be confronted with some species of bullying or bigotry, or some ill-phrased appeal to the general will, or some petty abuse of authority. If you have a political loyalty, you may be offered a shady reason for agreeing to a lie or a half-truth that serves some short-term purpose. Everybody devises tactics for getting through such moments; try behaving "as if" they need not be tolerated and are not inevitable. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Phrased Text quotes by Harris Sockel
#36. There was no word for what I was - unable to rent a car but able to stand in front of a room of thirteen-year-olds, sweating under industrial-grade fluorescent lights in the lilac-colored button-down my mom had picked and paid for a few months earlier. I could knock back black coffee and tell them how to ask questions, how to sit down, how to look me in the pupils. Throw away your gum. Don't text at school, at work. Clean your desk, your apartment, your life. Lessons. #Quote by Harris Sockel
Phrased Text quotes by Boris Groys
#37. An author who integrates alien signs into the medial surface of his own texts - signs behind which we presume the existence of other powerful, submedial subjects "as authors" - does not increase the comprehensibility of that text. Yet nonetheless, he increases the magical effectiveness this text exudes. Such quotations lead us to presume that the text houses a dangerous, manipulative subject, a magician with enough power to manipulate the signs of other powerful magicians and able to use them strategically for his own purposes. Thus an author who quotes alien signs conveys a stronger impression of powerful authorship than one who ad- vocates precisely his so-called own ideas - which do not interest anybody precisely because they are only his own. It is also well known that one may not quote the same author too often, in which case quoting gradu- ally looses its magical power and begins to irritate the reader. The reason for this gradual decrease of a quote's magical effectiveness is that it looses its strangeness over time and gets integrated into the medial surface of a text, thereby becoming a proper part of it. In order to maintain their magical effect, quotes have to be exchanged constantly so as to continue to maintain the same appearance of foreignness and freshness. The quote functions as a magical fetish that lends the entire text a hidden, submedial power beyond its superficial meaning. #Quote by Boris Groys
Phrased Text quotes by Glenn Ligon
#38. There's a kind of slowness and inefficiency about rendering text in paint. We're in a world that's very fast, so things that slow you for a minute-give you pause-are good. #Quote by Glenn Ligon
Phrased Text quotes by George Hillocks
#39. ...[T]he inherent polysemous character of language and the necessity of interpreting language according to one's personal understandings eliminate the possibility of infusing one's sentiments directly into the mind of another. At the same time, these characteristics of language and its interpretations suggest that no text ought ever to be thought complete. We can never manage to complete our ideas, to work out their full implications, to recognize their inadequacies, or to say what 'we really meant.' Further, since anything we say can be challenged, as Graff (1992b) points out, we can never manage to meet all the possible challenges. Such an idea may seem to be an unbearable problem. But we have always lived with these conditions. We have simply ignored them. #Quote by George Hillocks
Phrased Text quotes by Jeff Jackson
#40. I record the events of my life, filling up one notebook after another. Maybe I'm not getting the details exactly right, but it doesn't matter. The strict facts hold no currency here. What counts is the saliva I just spat on this very sheet of paper. The thick gob slowly dissolves a small circle in the text and turns the words translucent. The ink starts to bleed. The fibers loosen. If you run your fingers along this paragraph, you'll find the site where I stabbed my thumb straight through the page. There is an entire world in that hole. #Quote by Jeff Jackson
Phrased Text quotes by Philip Kerr
#41. I write by hand and then transfer the text onto the computer. I like the process of actually having a pen in my hand. Things flow more easily for me that way. #Quote by Philip Kerr
Phrased Text quotes by Mukesh Kwatra
#42. A Sunday rain awakes me up today,
Raindrops keeping my sorrows at bay.

Wall around me is now my lockdown friend,
Quarantined me has now learnt to blend.

Found my family that was always at shore,
The lust of wealth is not there anymore.

The loyal companion that is my pet,
Always keeps me cheerful and buoyant.

With the sky so blue and air so clear,
My crony birds singing I can now hear.

And though last but never the least,
My pen, my text, reappears to feast.

Happiness is always there with us right,
In darkness we see that hides in light! #Quote by Mukesh Kwatra
