I love that works of art are printed so that anyone can

I love that works of art are printed so that anyone can buy them. The variety of what they put on little postcards astounds me.
Leonard Lauder
I still read quite a few printed books, but if something is available in digital format I do not print it before I read it.

Robert Darnton
I believe we should celebrate new possibilities of combining the printed codex with electronic technology… The information ecology is getting richer, not thinner.
Robert Darnton

Matt Drudge
In every place, where there is any thing worthy of observation, there should be a short printed directory for strangers.
James Boswell
In the railroads, some people read clearly printed departure signs and then proceed to ask several times what they say. On airplanes, they demand things they know they cannot have. In their cars, they load up, drive away and then suddenly realize they don’t know where they’re going.
Lucinda Franks
For me, the Internet is the opposite of memory; the Internet is amnesia, it’s about today and tomorrow is another day. Printed issues are about recording time, leaving a trace and making it relevant.
Olivier Zahm
We read five words on the first page of a really good novel and we begin to forget that we are reading printed words on a page; we begin to see images.
John Gardner
At the end of the day I’m gonna be dead one day, and what people say about me is going what I accomplished and what I did in my life and how my children are. And I don’t think it’s gonna be what was printed in the tabloids this year.
Angelina Jolie
I wish I had a man and not a dishrag printed over with big words like ‘constitutional rights’ and ‘progress’!
Christina Stead
Comics are printed on paper, which is expensive, making it tough to stay in business.
Glenn Danzig
The funniest thing is I never understood why actors were so shady about who they’re dating. Then I realized the things you say get printed and the people you’re involved with read them. That’s what’s tricky. Nothing goes unnoticed. I don’t want to get myself in trouble!
Emily Meade
Every author really wants to have letters printed in the papers. Unable to make the grade, he drops down a rung of the ladder and writes novels.
P. G. Wodehouse
I remember turning in my first assignment in elementary school using the computer and the teachers were kind of confused that I had printed it.
Larry Page
I bring a copy of ‘Dracula’ with me wherever I go, the book. It’s my favorite book in the world, it’s absolutely incredible. My great-great grandfather was the guy who printed the first edition, so he’s the first person to ever put ‘Dracula’ on the written page.
Jack Reynor
The clothes that fire up my emotions are colorful and “different” pieces. My eye still picks out gilded-cloque glamour from among Burberry’s streamlined trench coats or a hand-printed coat from Dries Van Noten.
Suzy Menkes
After I won the Oscar for ‘Pollock,’ some newspaper printed, ‘She should get a million-dollar bump.’ My sisters would write me, ‘You’re gonna get this million-dollar bump!’
Marcia Gay Harden
I think the older you are, the more you’re going to cling to the printed word as being sacred.
H. G. Bissinger
That’s sort of the amazing thing about writing something down and then having it printed and published – it’s frozen. It’s there. It’s set. It’s in ink. It’s done. Nothing changes it.
Scott Spencer
I never believe much in happiness. I never believe in misery either. Those are things you see on the stage or the screen or the printed page, they never really happen to you in life.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
I do not love to be printed on every occasion, much less to be dunned and teased by foreigners about mathematical things or to be thought by our own people to be trifling away my time about them when I should be about the king’s business.
Isaac Newton
Part of my impetus to get famous is to have access to printed matter. I love all the stuff like postcards, books, little things. I can make my own zines, but it just helps if you’ve got somebody behind you publishing things.
Jack Pierson
As advertising blather becomes the nation’s normal idiom, language becomes printed noise.
George Will
The printed page seems to have come to something of a dead end for all of us.

Riccardo Tisci
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.
David Byrne
I do not mourn the death of the printed letter in a snobby, East Coast, patrician way – ‘Where have our manners gone?’ – but because I love objects, I love paper, and I love something that I can hold to my chest for a moment. Still, I bear no grudge against the e-mail form itself.
Jami Attenberg
If the Holy Bible was printed as an Ace Double it would be cut down to two 20,000-word halves with the Old Testament retitled as ‘Master of Chaos’ and the New Testament as ‘The Thing With Three Souls.
Terry Carr
When I think of anything properly describable as a beautiful idea, it is always in the form of music. I have written and printed probably 10,000,000 words in English but all the same I shall die an inarticulate man, for my best ideas beset me in a language I know only vaguely and speak only as a child.
H. L. Mencken
Paradoxically, I think working at an Internet magazine intensifies the attraction of beautiful printed objects.
Jacob Weisberg
The principal advantage of the non-parental lifestyle is that on Christmas Eve you need not be struck dumb by the three most terrifying words that the government allows to be printed on any product: “Some assembly required.”
John Leo
Even a mentally challenged shark would figure out that sea turtles did not wear boxer shorts printed in flying piggies, and no sea turtle would be yattering streams of obscenities between chain-smoker gasps of breath.
Christopher Moore
Every five, six, seven, eight, 10 years I do a raisonnГ©. When it’s printed in the book, it’s finished.
Imagine what our culture would be like if Americans sold ideas, words, and books with the same creativity we use to sell designer jeans, shampoo, and rock stars. Why, we might end up with people whos attention span for the printed word is longer than the time it takes to read a T-shirt.
Jim Trelease
Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.
George Orwell
There can hardly be a stranger commodity in the world than books. Printed by people who don’t understand them; sold by people who don’t understand them; bound, criticized and read by people who don’t understand them; and now even written by people who don’t understand them.
Georg C. Lichtenberg
If all printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it would offend nobody, there would be very little printed.
Benjamin Franklin
I saw no African people in the printed and illustrated Sunday school lessons. I began to suspect at this early age that someone had distorted the image of my people. My long search for the true history of African people the world over began.
John Henrik Clarke
In the end, what makes a book valuable is not the paper it’s printed on, but the thousands of hours of work by dozens of people who are dedicated to creating the best possible reading experience for you.
John Green
I’m a total stationery fiend – I have drawers and drawers of lovely printed cards and wrapping paper.
Keeley Hawes
We’ll always need printed books that don’t mutate the way digital books do; we’ll always need places to display books, auditoriums for book talks, circles for story time; we’ll always need brick-and-mortar libraries.
Marilyn Johnson
…I always feel it’s necessary to look at my images from two distances. Here is my criterion: If I can look at it from a distance and then come up close but find nothing more to see, it’s printed too large. It’s not giving me any new information when I come up to it.
Bruce Barnbaum
There are only two reasons for buying a book, after all. Either we intend to read it, in which case most of us find a printed version preferable, or we don’t intend to read it, in which case a printed version is absolutely essential.
Geoffrey Nunberg
The Bodleian Library, next to the Sheldonian, is one of the great libraries of the world. As well as holding most of the books printed in England since the first quarter of the 17th century, it houses priceless printed texts, manuscripts, and collections.
Justin Cartwright
The enemy bombards our front not only with a drumfire of artillery, but also with a drumfire of printed paper. Besides bombs, which kill the body, his airmen also throw down leaflets which are intended to kill the soul.
Paul von Hindenburg
So much magazine writing is playing to an empty room. You work like a plow horse, your words get printed on a half-million or more copies, and then it often just disappears into this national vacuum.
Jonathan Miles
One of the great defects of English books printed in the last century is the want of an index.
Lafcadio Hearn
When I wanted a job at Christian Louboutin, I literally printed the entrance of the store I wanted to work at on my wall and looked at it in the morning before I got up and went to work at Children’s Shoes.
Bree Runway
The whole process of getting cards printed is so cumbersome.
Neelam Kothari
I don’t write huge books any more. I used to write 1,000 printed pages, but now I write short books. I did one on Napoleon, 50,000 words – enjoyed doing that. He was a baddie. I did one on Churchill, which was a bestseller in New York, I’m glad to say. 50,000 words. He was a goodie.
Paul Johnson
This is all you have to do. Sit down once a day to the novel and start working without internal criticism, without debilitating expectations, without the need to look at your words as if they were already printed and bound. The beginning is only a draft. Drafts are imperfect by definition.
Walter Mosley
Everything that is printed and bound in a book contains some echo at least of the best that is in literature.
Henry David Thoreau
No one knows as well as I how much nonsense is printed in books.
Julia Quinn
I grow daily to honour facts more and more, and theory less and less. A fact, it seems to me, is a great thing; a sentence printed, if not by God, then at least by the Devil.
Thomas Carlyle
There’s something touching about a kid who’s reading a book that’s printed on actual paper. I think that anything that kids start reading, within reason, can lead to other discoveries.
Josh Radnor
Not merely can people like me write things that would never have been printed before but I think an enormously dramatic change has taken place in public opinion, possibly for the wrong reasons.
Anthony Holden
Amid chaos of images, we value coherence. We believe in the printed word. And we believe in clarity. And we believe in immaculate syntax. And in the beauty of the English language.
William Shawn
The fairies break their dances And leave the printed lawn.
A. E. Housman
Throughout history, every government that’s printed money, the money has eventually gone to its ultimate value which is zero. Remember? The confederate dollar went to zero. The continental went to zero. That’s what happens when you have a bank that’s allowed to print as much money as it wants to.
Robert Kiyosaki
I don’t mind saying, you know, that I don’t take a salary from the church, and God has blessed me with more money than I could imagine from my books. It’s been printed all over, so I don’t feel like I am hiding anything.
Joel Osteen
Printed books usually outlive bookstores and the publishers who brought them out. They sit around, demanding nothing, for decades. That’s one of their nicest qualities – their brute persistence.
Nicholson Baker
Use of the word; the word itself was not printed.
Robert Vaughn
I’ve read everything printed in English that Freud has written. It helped me a great deal.
Gene Wilder
In terms of freedom, America doesn’t invite any comparison to Russia. It would be silly to make one. Every line that I care to write, I can have printed. There is no point to even talk about degrees.
Joseph Brodsky
I consider myself lucky that Sheila Johnson, the cofounder of Black Entertainment Television, didn’t choose to rest on her very impressive business laurels. Her luscious 100 percent modal scarves, printed with photos she takes all over the world, are gorgeous. Wearing one is like being wrapped in a hug.
Gayle King
All men who read escape from something else into what lies behind the printed page; the quality of the dream may be argued, but its release has become a functional necessity.
Raymond Chandler
I think a lot of people overlook the importance of the menu as a marketing tool and a way of communicating to the customer what the ambition of their restaurant is. Not only the typeface and the design, but what is it printed on? Is it cheap-looking? Is it the right kind of paper for that restaurant?
Joe Bastianich
History has tongues Has angels has guns has saved has praised Today proclaims Achievements of her exiles long returned Now no more rootless, for whom her printed page Glazes their bruised waste years in one Balancing present sky.
Stephen Spender
. . . [Y]ou must understand that we have always considered the writing of books a hindrance to our work, and that for this reason the custom was not to be introduced into the Company. However, since no rule, however general, does not have some exception, we shall see whether it is advisable to have yours printed.
Vincent de Paul
Do not take up cause against the inaccuracies printed about you. They are your protection.
Jean Cocteau
The title of the poems was The Only Bar in Dixon. We sent it out to The New Yorker on a fluke, and they took them and printed all three in the same issue.
James Welch
I will say that comic books are not the easiest things to translate to film, number one. Even the most well meaning of filmmakers find what’s acceptable on the printed page is very difficult to bring to film.
Mark Hamill
It’s a truism that denials never quite catch up with charges. Honest journalists who may have mistakenly printed false information know that the most prominent retraction never quite undoes the damage done by the original publication.
Tom Wicker
I’ve always used the technique of the cuento. I am an oral storyteller, but now I do it on the printed page. I think if we were very wise we would use that same tradition in video cassettes, in movies, and on radio.
Rudolfo Anaya
I love the description of Gothic churches before the printed word, that they were the bibles of the poor.
John McGahern
I have become an enthusiast for the printed word again. I have to be that, I now understand, because I want to be a character in all of my works. I can do that in print. In a movie, somehow, the author always vanishes.
Kurt Vonnegut
Like a word on a page that you’ve printed and read a million times, that suddenly looks strange or wrong, foreign. And you feel scared for a second, like you’ve lost something, even if you’re not sure what it is.
Sarah Dessen
…quantity is not necessarily synonymous with quality and brilliant ideas are not a function of the number of titles printed.
Carlo M. Cipolla
The age of printed pamphlets and political essays has long since been replaced by television, a distracting and absorbing medium which seems determined to entertain itself more than it informs and educates.
Al Gore
I’ve never written about my husband, Steve, or any of my children because I know them all too well. I see them in all their complexities which makes them impossible to render on the printed page.
Sue Grafton
The range in brightness from the purple glow [of the sunset] to the dark sky above is too great for most films, and naturally it is beyond the range of printed pictures.
James Elkins
Perhaps the old literacy of words is dying and a new literacy of images is being born. Perhaps the printed page will disappear and even our records be kept in images and sounds.
Nancy Newhall
We learn words by rote, but not their meaning; that must be paid for with our life-blood, and printed in the subtle fibres of our nerves.
George Eliot
Look – The moon thumbs through night’s book. Finds a lake where nothing is printed. Draws a straight line. That’s all it can. That’s enough. Thick line. Straight toward you. – Look.
Rolf Jacobsen
In writing biography, fact and fiction shouldn’t be mixed. And if they are, the fictional points should be printed in red ink, the facts printed in black ink.
Catherine Drinker Bowen
Here I am, one of the most colorful women of my time – if not of my block – being made to sound positively legumelike in printed interviews.
Bette Midler
I don’t really read the tabloids, and you never know if what’s being printed is true or not.
Leona Lewis
On the delivery plate of the Nutri-Matic Drink Synthesizer was a small tray, on which say three bone china cups and saucers, a bone china jug of milk, a silver teapot full of the best tea Arthur had ever tasted and a small printed note saying “Wait.
Douglas Adams
Things evidently false are not only printed, but many things of truth most falsely set forth.
Thomas Browne
I admit that I am hopelessly hooked on the printed newspaper. I love turning the pages and the serendipity of stumbling across a piece of irresistible information or a photograph that I wasnt necessarily intending to read.
Jill Abramson
There will always be people like me, who believe that to ripple the pages of a printed book is a special experience, one that through the centuries has taken millions from the darkness into the light.
Quintin Jardine
When I moved to Los Angeles, aged 54, I printed out Winston Churchill’s phrase, ‘Never, never, never give up’, and stuck it on my fridge. I had no idea what was going to happen, but I knew I had to keep on going.
Alan Dale
The pleasant books, that silently among Our household treasures take familiar places, And are to us as if a living tongue Spake from the printed leaves or pictured faces!
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I think printed fiction is what women read.
Charlotte Lamb
In 2056, I think you’ll be able to buy T-shirts on which are printed equations describing the unified laws of our universe.
Max Tegmark
The ability of the press to print their stories without the government trying to get them to betray their sources is as essential to a free press as the ink it is printed with. Otherwise, who will hold accountable those who hold power over us?
Rod Lurie
After all, how many of us had tried to forget something traumatic…only to find it printed on the back of our eyelids, tattooed on our tongues?
Jodi Picoult
My childhood bedroom had wallpaper that was printed with clouds and rainbows.
Brad Goreski
I like to flip through play scripts, not just my own; there is something exciting about seeing printed language on a page that triggers responses in me.
Donald Margulies
You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives you nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that fleeting moment when you feel alive. It is not for unsteady souls .
Merce Cunningham
All that are printed and bound are not books; they do not necessarily belong to letters, but are oftener to be ranked with the other luxuries and appendages of civilized life. Base wares are palmed off under a thousand disguises.
Henry David Thoreau
My childhood was surrounded by books and writing. From a very early age I was fascinated by storytelling, by the printed word, by language, by ideas. So I would seek them out.
Carlos Ruiz Zafon
I write on the typewriter. I like it because I like the feeling of making something with my hands. I like pressing the key and a letter comes up and is printed on a piece of paper. I can understand that.
David McCullough
There are so many possibilities around what a magazine should be today. I still believe in the printed object because, for me, print is memory. This is my main message for this 25th anniversary issue.
Olivier Zahm
it is nice that nobody writes as they talk and that the printed language is different from the spoken otherwise you could not lose yourself in books and of course you do you completely do.
Gertrude Stein
The difference between the world of pictures and the world of printed matter is extraordinary and hard to define. A picture is like the masses: a multitude of impressions. A book on the other hand, with its linear advance of words and characters seems to be connected to individual identity.
Don DeLillo
Hunger in the midnight, hunger at the stroke of noon
Hunger in the banquet, hunger in the bride and groom
Hunger on the TV, hunger on the printed page
And there’s a God-sized hunger underneath the questions of the age
Jackson Browne
When I found the book was condemned as soon as the book was printed, or rather as soon as it was set up ready to print, I held it in plates for a year nearly, waiting to see what would come out of all this discussion.
John Harvey Kellogg
Ideals jump across the hierarchies of the printed word.
Dennis Potter
Something happens between a novel and its reader which is similar to the process of developing photographs, the way they did it before the digital age. The photograph, as it was printed in the darkroom, became visible bit by bit. As you read your way through a novel, the same chemical process takes place.
Patrick Modiano
In the average newspaper there is not a complete suppression of stories that the sacred cows don’t want printed. But rather what happens is that the stories get printed with stresses, colorations and emphasis that favor the sacred cows.
Carl Sandburg
…the vital point to remember is that the swine who just sent your pearl of a story back with nothing but a coffee-stain and a printed rejection slip can be wrong. You cannot take it for granted that he is wrong, but you have an all-important margin of hope that might be enough to keep you going.
Brian Stableford
It is a melancholy illusion of those who write books and articles that the printed word survives. Alas, it rarely does.
Eric Hobsbawm
There is a Book worth all other books which were ever printed.
Patrick Henry
Before I went on ‘Gogglebox,’ I could never have imagined how hard it is for women in the public eye. I thought celebrities lived in a different world, I took everything the tabloids printed as gospel, and I barely even used social media.
Scarlett Moffatt
Nothing chased nightmares away faster than the rustle of printed paper.
Cornelia Funke
When the truth does not get printed, damage is done.
Ben Elliot
I remember, one day, I just printed out about a hundred CVs, and I was running around London. I was going to modeling agencies, temping agencies, anything. I was so desperate.
Fleur East
Drunken talk isn’t meant to be printed in the paper.
Ray Charles
More paper money cannot make a society richer, of course, it is just more printed-paper. Otherwise why is it that there are still poor countries and poor people around?
Hans-Hermann Hoppe
I always bring my kids vacation souvenirs printed in Comic Sans, so they know I love them but not unconditionally.
Ken Jennings
For a while there, I was a stringer. The expression comes from the old habit of stringing together the column inches that you had written. They’d measure it and pay you 10 cents an inch for your printed copy.
Charles Kuralt
The point is that instead of a monolithic brick of printed content – delivered more or less unchanged to all subscribers – social media offers news that is personalized and nimble.
Ryan Holmes
I am full of admiration for the technologists who have developed all sorts of gadgets for the purpose of improving communications. However, I believe that all these fascinating machines are complementary to, and not substitutes for, books and the printed word.
Prince Philip
I was 26 when I invented the wrap dress. It was just a nothing little printed dress made out an jersey, and before I know it, I lived an American Dream making more than 25,000 dresses a week.
Diane von Furstenberg
Beautiful faces are those that wear —
It matters little if dark or fair —
Whole-souled honesty printed there.
Ellen Palmer Allerton
I heard some famous people had an anniversary, five long years together, it was Hollywood history. Now my grandma and grandpa never made no printed page, but they took the love of 57 years right to the grave.
Clay Walker
That’s an aspect of this business which can be very frustrating and aggravating. Most of what is written about you is wrong and so much of what does get printed is often about personal things that you don’t want to have other people read about.
Winona Ryder
Many of the articles printed over the last few months have ended up painting a picture of me that is more than a little distorted.
Phil Collins
I come alive when I have assisted in bringing out the printed word on the stage, you know, and I enjoy directing plays. It’s a tactile process, theatre, unlike a number of other forms of the creative work.
Wole Soyinka
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.
Eric Alterman
Computers may save time but they sure waste a lot of paper. About 98 percent of everything printed out by a computer is garbage that no one ever reads.
Andy Rooney
When I look at our roster, I’m sure all of you have printed that I’m coming up on 35, and given my situation and my salary structure and all that, yeah, I have to wonder if this team is going to make moves and they haven’t.
Antonio Davis
I even like when girls wear printed Minnie Mouse T-shirts with a cool ball gown skirt, or a ripped up pair of jeans – it’s all about how you style it.
Christian Siriano
It’s part of the celebrity process but my life has never been as interesting or as wild as what’s been printed about me.
Winona Ryder
School was a source of great suffering to me, but once I learned to read, I disappeared into books, where I was a happy visitor to all the worlds that sprang full-blown from the printed page.
Sue Grafton
The experience of reading a printed comic book will never change, but now, thanks to the digital age, there are many different ways to enjoy the same story. Digital comic books, of course, can be interactive in many different ways, allowing the reader to feel like a participant in the story.
Stan Lee
I worked on scores. I went to the musical library in Berlin which is very famous. I discovered that we had scores of Beethoven, printed scores of Beethoven, that are full of mistakes. Not the wrong or false notes, but the wrong dynamic, understandable things.
Kurt Masur
No vision is worth the paper it’s printed on unless it is communicated constantly and reinforced with rewards.
Jack Welch
I would always want printed books.
J. K. Rowling
She read books quickly and compulsively, paperback after paperback, as if she might drift away without the anchor of the printed page.
Jane Hamilton
For 500 years after Gutenberg, the dominant form of information was the printed page: knowledge was primarily delivered in a fixed format, one that encouraged readers to believe in stable and settled truths.
Katharine Viner
Digital data are more fragile than printed material.
Robert Darnton
President Obama announced his re-election campaign, though it’s not really a surprise. He did all the things that make it official: He filed the paperwork, redesigned his website, and printed another fake birth certificate.
Craig Ferguson
A printed work, which cannot be read, becomes a product without purpose.
Emil Ruder
My work is more driven by the creative word. It’s immersed in other writing and printed work, rather than drawn so much from life or past experience.
Raymond Pettibon
I highlight everything I find interesting, and then type out everything I’ve highlighted, and then print out everything I’ve typed, and reread these printed notes as often as possible.
Eleanor Catton
Never do anything in life if you would be ashamed of seeing it printed on the front page of your hometown newspaper for your friends and family to see.
Warren Buffett
It has been demonstrated that freemason – in an operative context – is a contraction of ‘freestone mason’….The earliest printed use so far traced comes in The Pilgrimage of Perfection – usually attributed to William Bonde – printed in 1536 by Wynkyn de Worde.
John Hamill
On the printed page, it’s best to have everything – you know, to still mind your P’s and Q’s, dot your I’s and cross your T’s, yes.
Mary Norris
My advice to the reader approaching a poem is to make the mind still and blank. Let the poem speak. This charged quiet mimics the blank space ringing the printed poem, the nothing out of which something takes shape.
Camille Paglia
Come on, Ella. Sleep green.’ Ignoring him, I got into bed wearing a T-shirt and boxer shorts printed with penguins. I reached over to the nightstand and flipped off the lamp. A moment of silence, and then I heard a lecherous murmur. ‘I like your penguins.
Lisa Kleypas
Nothing was more valuable than the printed word.
Margaret Haddix
I was looking at a bottle of water; they have nutritional facts printed on the side. You know, I’m no chemist, but I have a rough idea what’s in water.
Jim Gaffigan
The space between the young reader’s eyeballs and the printed page is a holy place and officialdom should trample all over it at their peril.’
Terry Pratchett
I never wear heavy animal prints, because I feel sad for the animals. They look majestic with their striped or printed hide and fur, and when people wear the same, they look horrible and out of place.
Neeti Mohan
I once stole a pornographic book that was printed in braille. I used to rub the dirty parts.
Woody Allen
People are now layering all kinds of different things together. Eighteenth century, 19th century, rustic, modern. Three dimensional printed pieces, very high end technological pieces, but mixed with local artisan stuff.
Sebastian Clovis
Starting in the wake of the 2008 GFC (Global Financial Crisis), market observers have warned of a crash in the bond market. Initially, it was believed that the trillions printed to bail out the banks would cause inflation and, therefore, a flight from bonds.
Max Keiser
I recently adopted for my own a good motto I saw somewhere, on a barroom mirror or possibly a washroom wall: ‘The time you enjoyed wasting wasn’t wasted.’ I think I’ll have that printed some day on a T-shirt or the bedroom ceiling.
Peg Bracken
I am a camera, with its shutter open. Someday, all of this will be developed, printed, fixed.
Christopher Isherwood
It’s nice to see my work recognized as being worth something beyond the printed page, and it was very cool seeing Thanos up on the big screen.
Jim Starlin
Mostly, I worked so quickly, I didn’t see the details of a photograph until it was printed.
Harold Feinstein
The summer of 1991, I took $2,000 of my savings and a desktop program, and I asked my friends to write 800 words about something they cared about. I got eight or nine articles and put them together. It was no frills, black and white, no graphics. I printed them out and just dumped piles around D.C.
Eric Liu
In the printed page the only real things are the paper and the ink; the white spaces play the same part in aiding the eye to take in the meaning of the print as do the black letters.
John Burroughs
His eyes beheld beauty not in reality but in the printed word. Standing in the waiting-room, he realized that in his life he had accepted secondary experience — the experience of reading someone else’s thoughts — over real life.
Ian Rankin
Until my businesses really took off, my family, I think, just assumed I was selling printed T-shirts out of the back of my car. They just couldn’t wrap their head around how fashion could be profitable.
Tan France
My wedding preparations were done. My wedding outfit was ready. I had even bought my jewellery, and the cards were also printed. It is very sad that I had to call off my marriage one month prior to the actual date.
Shilpa Shinde
People rely on Wikipedia, and a lot of it is wrong. But because there it is on the Internet, they assume it’s right. Rumor gets printed as fact. We may have lost our critical facility as a nation.
Ben Mezrich
I asked my publisher what would happen if he sold all the copies of my book he’d printed. He said ‘I’ll just print another ten’.
Eric Sykes
Reading activates and exercises the mind. Reading forces the mind to discriminate. From the beginning, readers have to recognize letters printed on the page, make them into words, the words into sentences, and the sentences into concepts. Reading pushes us to use our imagination and makes us more creatively inclined.
Benjamin Carson
Good priests never look for awards and, perversely enough in the clerical culture universe, do not receive many. Like the aged nuns who taught selflessly and nearly anonymously all their lives, these servants of the People of God only get into the papers when their obituaries are printed.
Eugene Kennedy
If it’s fast, no I don’t have enough piano technique. In that case, it’s probably been done on some kind of synthesizer or sequencer. Then the score can then be printed out and so forth.
Bill Bruford
To be censored is one sure way of knowing you have been taken dead seriously. It also speaks to the continuing power of the printed word, almost fifteen hundred years after that amazing invention.
Felice Picano
Black and white is so familiar. It’s how we see the printed word in books, so it’s kind of neutral in a way. Yet it’s ironic that black and white is so charged socially, what with its association with race.
Glenn Ligon
You can’t help putting a lot of yourself into the image and when it’s printed the reader can spend hours getting it out.
Francoise Mouly
We cannot alter the essential shape of a single letter without at the same time destroying the familiar printed face of our language, and thereby rendering it useless.
Jan Tschichold
Immensely clever and libidinously hilarious.The most astonishing thing about Love in a Dead Language is its ingenious construction. Insofar as any printed volume can lay claim to being a multimedia work, this book earns that distinction.
Paul Di Filippo
The whole problem with news on television comes down to this: all the words uttered in an hour of news coverage could be printed on a page of a newspaper. And the world cannot be understood in one page.
Neil Postman
Even printed, on pages that are bound, sentences remain unsettled organisms. Years later, I can always reach out to smooth a stray hair. And yet, at a certain point, I must walk away, trusting them to do their work. I am left looking over my shoulder, wondering if I might have structured one more effectively.
Jhumpa Lahiri
The product of paper and printed ink, that we commonly call the book, is one of the great visible mediators between spirit and time, and, reflecting zeitgeist, lasts as long as ore and stone.
Johann Georg Hamann
Writing that’s native to the web is different in ways that are crucial but subtle enough that you can miss them if you conceive of your audience as reading a printed product.
Jacob Weisberg
The next time you see a 16-color, blind-embossed, gold-stamped, die-cut, elaborately folded and bound job, printed on handmade paper, see if it isn’t a mediocre idea trying to pass for something else.
Milton Glaser
Television can stir emotions, but it doesn’t invite reflection as much as the printed page.
Bill Moyers
Collections of books and other documents, either printed or electronic, are a form of congregation.
Tom Peters
But when I worked on a painting I would do it from a drawing but I would put certain things I was fairly sure I wanted in the painting, and then collage on the painting with printed dots or painted paper or something before I really committed it.
Roy Lichtenstein
Printed media and other media indicated that Mr. Ellison was going to use the Koran, and that generated scores and hundreds of emails to my office. And so I thought it very important to state my view. And my view is that I don’t subscribe to the Koran, and I will now be using the Bible when I take the oath.
Virgil Goode
I am a little old fashioned, and I love to have my scripts printed out. There is something magical about feeling the paper, making notes and page marks.
Olga Fonda
Fictional characters exist in only two places, neither of which is on the printed page. They exist, first, in the mind of the writer and, second, in the mind of the reader.
Maren Elwood
I subscribe to the theory that reading a book is similar to walking a trail, and I’m most comfortable walking when I can see where I’m going and where I’ve been. When I’m reading a printed book, the weight of the pages I’ve turned gives me a sense of how far I’ve come.
Anthony Doerr
There’s been a fragmentation of how the market functions, but I believe printed books are here to stay. People like the tactile experience, the smell of them; there’s a great romance to them.
Jonathan Galassi
None of the established museums were treating cartoons seriously. It was considered a lesser art or no art at all, just a way to sell newspapers. Even the syndicates who were dedicated to the cartoons were throwing them out, figuring they had no value after they were printed.
Mort Walker
I love all of my children equally, all of my printed books, and each one bears a special piece of me. But the one Im most proud of is the one no one will ever see – the very first manuscript I ever wrote, back in 1990. It took me a year to do it.
Steve Berry
In my youth I regarded the universe as an open book, printed in the language of equations, whereas now it appears to me as a text written in invisible ink, of which in our rare moments of grace we are able to decipher a small segment.
Arthur Koestler
The first printed mention of bagels… is to be found in the Community Regulations of Kracow, Poland, for the year 1610 which stated that bagels would be given as a gift to any woman in childbirth.
Leo Rosten
Few speeches which have produced an electrical effect on an audience can bear the colourless photography of a printed record.
Archibald Primrose, 5th Earl of Rosebery
If on the one side we do not harbor the illusion that the entire proletariat must be enlightened before it can be called into battle, so on the other we do not doubt that as much enlightenment as possible must be produced with oral and printed agitation.
Johann Most
Each money-printing exercise brings about unintended consequences. These unintended consequences are higher inflation rates than had no money been printed.
Marc Faber
I read real books. On paper. You know, those printed books? I feel like this is the last thing I do to support my industry. I think they smell great, too.
Gary Shteyngart
The ‘Belize Times’ will be back. I can’t at this juncture say exactly when it will be back in printed form. As you know, it is presently published online. But this historic newspaper will one day, hopefully soon, rise again.
Said Musa
I set records that will never be equaled. In fact, I hope 90% of them don’t even get printed.
Bob Uecker
I didn’t want to write a book as Stephen King’s son, because all I did was get born, and that’s not much of an accomplishment. If that was the reason my book was published, it wouldn’t be worth the paper it was printed on. I wanted to do my own thing.
Owen King
Anything written or printed under a print or picture takes the attention from it and, if it is very black or white in any marked degree, will utterly destroy its beauty.
Winslow Homer
The book she had been reading was under her pillow, pressing its cover against her ear as if to lure her back into its printed pages.
Cornelia Funke
Personal & Confidential. Letters so marked should be. When the contents are only printed matter, though, the minifrauder succeeds in sowing illwill & ire.
Malcolm Forbes
I do the interviews and then I read about myself. I understand it and I get what it is. But there’s so much stuff that I say, either jokingly or lightheartedly, that gets printed like I’m dead serious.
Aaron McGruder
Duty is duty, conscience is conscience, right is right, and wrong is wrong, whatever sized type they may be printed in. ” Large” or “small” are not words for the vocabulary of conscience.
Alexander MacLaren
When I’m writing a lyric, I totally forget about the music. I’m just looking at the lyric and thinking about it almost as a separate entity. And then I’ll go to my keyboard with all the lyrics printed out and try to think of how to make this a complete musical thing. I’ve got a very basic keyboard with some presets.
Scott Walker
Life shouldn’t be printed on dollar bills.
Clifford Odets
The printed newspaper is a powerful showcase for news, opinion and advertising.
Jill Abramson
Are you telling me that the polite little note I sent my college alumni magazine has, by some unbeknownst series of errors, come to be printed in The Paper of Record, instead? What a fiasco!
Frank Bruni
No, there are no hard and fast rules about sources, no printed booklet to help journalists through.
Ian Hislop
DEINOTHERIUM, n. An extinct pachyderm that flourished when the Pterodactyl was in fashion. The latter was a native of Ireland, its name being pronounced Terry Dactyl or Peter O’Dactyl, as the man pronouncing it may chance to have heard it spoken or seen it printed.
Ambrose Bierce
Keep a Day Timer so you know where you are supposed to be and when. Whether this system is in a tangible, printed version or on your mobile device, by having a Day Timer, you can stay organized throughout the day.
Clay Clark
[Photography] can be tiny, on your phone, or it can be a billboard, or a film-sized projection, or printed in a magazine. I don’t think we’ve been in a time before when so much photography is available in so many formats, when everybody is a photographer.
Christian Marclay
Digital information, for every type of storage, is unfounded. If everything is on a hard drive and the hard drive freezes up, your whole photography collection could just go away. We can still look at printed photographs of our grandparents. We can physically hold them in our hands and look at it.
Gus Van Sant
What happens often – although I’m not particularly a victim of this sort of thing – is that somebody will make a quote, or invent a remark and it gets printed, ends up on the ‘net and it becomes currency. And some of them are so bizarre!
Robert Palmer
It’s interesting how powerful, in fact, the printed page still is.
Andrew Rosenthal
Nothing wise was ever printed upon an apron.
Demetri Martin
Oh, magic hour, when a child first knows she can read printed words.
Betty Smith
The U.S. have printed money; they intend to tax the rich in order to avoid the fiscal cliff. These are things that sees anyone who dares to propose them in Greece and Europe labeled an extremist, when at the same time, it’s what Obama does.
Alexis Tsipras
I do think that the kind of writing that I do will always be around and printed in books, magazines, and now blogs.
Stephen Vincent Benet
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.
Eric Alterman
I cannot remember a time when I was not in love with them–with the books themselves, cover and binding and the paper they were printed on, with their smell and their weight and with their possession in my arms, captured and carried off to myself.
Eudora Welty
We have perhaps all said things in unguarded moments that we would not want printed in newspapers.
John I. Jenkins
If you are a professional writer – i.e., if someone else is getting paid to worry about how your words are formatted and printed – Emacs outshines all other editing software in approximately the same way that the noonday sun does the stars. It is not just bigger and brighter; it simply makes everything else vanish.
Neal Stephenson
Photographs have the kind of authority over imagination to-day, which the printed word had yesterday, and the spoken word before that. They seem utterly real. They come, we imagine, directly to us without human meddling, and they are the most effortless food for the mind conceivable.
Walter Lippmann
Reading and life are not separate but symbiotic. And for this serious task of imaginative discovery and self-discovery, there is and remains one perfect symbol: the printed book.
Julian Barnes
If you send your work to the magazines, you may be in for a shock. You may get a rejection note. The worst kind. A printed form. And probably you will be shattered. Shattered.
R. O. Blechman
More than anything, the journal wanted. It wanted more than it could hold, more than words could describe, more than diagrams could illustrate. Longing burst from the pages, in every frantic line and every hectic sketch and every dark-printed definition. There was something pained and melancholy about it.
Maggie Stiefvater
I do not know but thoughts written down thus in a journal might be printed in the same form with greater advantage than if the related ones were brought together into separate essays.
Henry David Thoreau
