Page Quotes

A page of history is worth a volume of logic.

O. W. Holmes

You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.

Paul Sweeney

If my soul could get away from this so-called prison, be granted all the list of attributes generally bestowed on spirits, my first ramble on spirit-wings would not be among the volcanoes of the moon. Nor should I follow the sunbeams to their sources in the sun. I should hover about the beauty of our own good star. I should not go moping around the tombs, nor around the artificial desolation of men. I should study Nature's laws in all their crossings and unions: I should follow magnetic streams to their source and follow the shores of our magnetic oceans. I should go among the rays of the aurora, and follow them to their beginnings, and study their dealings and communions with other powers and expressions of matter. And I should go to the very center of our globe and read the whole splendid page from the beginning.

John Muir†

Television has a real problem. They have no page two.

Art Buchwald

No man is truly great who is great only in his own lifetime. The test of greatness is the page of history.

William Hazlitt

This used to be about sex. The literature of my people was pornography, filled with cries for mercy, drama enacted on people without prolonged negotiation, partners engaged in a dance in the middle of a bonfire. Now, it's 300-page manuals about how to make sure nothing bad will happen.

Laura Antoniou

In that book which is My memory... On the first page That is the chapter when I first met you Appear the words... Here begins a new life.

Durante degli Alighieri

The world is a great book, of which they that never stir from home read only a page.

St. Augustine of Hippo

I will pass over my flirtation with journalism as a way of making a living, an idea I dropped when I discovered that in the fifties unlike now female journalists always ended up writing the obituaries and the ladies' page. But how was I to make a living? There was not a roaring market in poetry, there, then. I thought of running away and being a waitress, which I later tried, but got very tired and thin; there's nothing like clearing away other people's mushed-up dinners to make you lose your appetite

Margaret Eleanor Atwood

It first was a rumour dismissed as a lie but then came the evidence none could deny: a double page spread in the Sunday Express The Russians are running the DHSS!

Attila the Stockbroker

The Yankees' Facebook page was hacked. The hacker was immediately purchased and signed to a 5 year contract with the Yankees.

Stephen Colbert

I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the word begin to move around. Stressed accents begin to invert. The word abandons its meaning like an overload which is too heavy and prevents dreaming. Then words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young. And the words wander away, looking in the nooks and crannies of vocabulary for new company, bad company.

Gaston Bachelard

A word is a bud attempting to become a twig. How can one not dream while writing? It is the pen which dreams. The blank page gives the right to dream.

Gaston Bachelard

Perspective Use It or Lose It. If you turned to this page, you're forgetting that what is going on around you is not reality. Think about that.

Richard Bach

I think the title page I drew for Salom was after all "impossible". You see booksellers couldn't stick it up in their windows.

Aubrey Vincent Beardsley
