Between my finger and my thumb The squat pen rests. I'll dig with it.seamus heaney
I am obnoxious to each carping tongue Who says my hand a needle better fits, A poet's pen all scorn I should thus wrong For such despite they cast on female wits; If what I do prove well, it won't advance, They'll say it's stolen, or else, it was by chance.anne bradstreet
There written all Black as the damning drops that fall From the denouncing Angel's pen, Ere Mercy weeps them out again.thomas moore
This is where I begin to do the writing. I am now going to be the pen and not the paper.Peter Greenaway
As long as I have a pen in my hand and a revolver in my pocket, I fear no one.
When I have fears that I may cease to be Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain, Before high-piled books, in charactery, Hold like rich garners the full ripened grain.john keats
Beneath the rule of men entirely great,The pen is mightier than the sword.edward bulwer-lytton
And down the dunes a thousand guns lie crouched,Unseen, beside the flood —Like tigers in some Orient jungle crouchedThat wait and watch for blood.Meanwhile, through streets still echoing with trade,Walk grave and thoughtful men,Whose hands may one day wield the patriot's bladeAs lightly as the pen.henry timrod
My pen and paper causes a chain reaction, to get your brain relaxing.eminem
In contemplating thyself never include the vessel which surrounds thee, and these instruments which are attached about it. For they are like an ax, differing only in this, that they grow to the body. For indeed there is no more use in these parts without the cause which moves and checks them than in the weaver's shuttle, and the writer's pen, and the driver's whip.marcus aurelius
You must get an education. You must go to school, and you must learn to protect yourself. And you must learn to protect yourself with the pen, and not the gun.Josephine Baker
One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.
Are simple women only fit To dress, to darn, to flower or knit, To mind the distaff, or the spit? Why are the needle and the pen Thought incompatible by men? 507
It is said the warrior's is the twofold Way of pen and sword, and he should have a taste for both Ways. Even if a man has no natural ability he can be a warrior by sticking assiduously to both divisions of the Way. Generally speaking, the Way of the warrior is resolute acceptance of death.
The pen is mightier than the sword.
What though they come with scroll and pen, And grave as a shaven clerk, By this sign you shall know them, That they ruin and make dark.gilbert keith chesterton
I have read many definitions of what is a conservationist, and written not a few myself, but I suspect that the best one is written not with a pen, but with an axe. It is a matter of what a man thinks about while chopping, or while deciding what to chop. A conservationist is one who is humbly aware that with each stroke he is writing his signature on the face of his land.aldo leopold
I’m a good scholar when it comes to reading but a blotting kind of writer when you give me a pen.john millington synge
We didn't do this with just a pencil and some paper. Lots of our notes are in pen. We didn't need to erase much.
The unhappy man, who once has trail'd a pen, Lives not to please himself, but other men; Is always drudging, wastes his life and blood, Yet only eats and drinks what you think good.john dryden
Beneath the rule of men entirely great The pen is mightier than the sword.Lytton
A bond between souls is ancient – older than the planet.Dianna Hardy
