Much as constitutional guarantees of press freedom do little good for prospective publishers if they do not have access to paper or ink, the right to aid in dying is strikingly useless if nobody is willing to help.
To sit home, read one's favorite paper, and scoff at the misdeeds of the men who do things is easy, but it is markedly ineffective. It is what evil men count upon the good men's doing.theodore roosevelt
Where I'm from we don't trust paper. Wealth is what's here on the premises. If I open a cupboard and see, say, thirty cans of tomato sauce and a five-pound bag of rice, I get a little thrill of well-being — much more so than if I take a look at the quarterly dividend report from my mutual fund.garrison keillor
This is where I begin to do the writing. I am now going to be the pen and not the paper.Peter Greenaway
Making money out of paper, making paper out of trees We’re making so much money we can hardly breathetodd snider
paper is poverty,... it is only the ghost of money, and not money itself.thomas jefferson
I have these large pieces of recycled brown paper stretched on my apartment wall and when I am not doing anything fashion-related, I'm drawing on it, playing with colour spectrums.
The fate of the country does not depend on how you vote at the polls — the worst man is as strong as the best at that game; it does not depend on what kind of paper you drop into the ballot-box once a year, but on what kind of man you drop from your chamber into the street every morning.Henry David Thoreau
Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.william wordsworth
My pen and paper causes a chain reaction, to get your brain relaxing.eminem
Poetry surrounds us everywhere, but putting it on paper is, alas, not so easy as looking at it.vincent van gogh
The human brain cannot release enough neurotransmitters to feel emotion a thousand times as strong as the grief of one funeral. A prospective risk going from 10,000,000 deaths to 100,000,000 deaths does not multiply by ten the strength of our determination to stop it. It adds one more zero on paper for our eyes to glaze over.eliezer yudkowsky
It is one thing to coolly design a portfolio strategy on a sheet of paper or computer monitor, and quite another to actually deploy it.William Bernstein
...in a volume of dozen lines of Milton, Proper and Prior, with a paper from the Spectator and a chapter from the Sterne are eulogized by a thousand pens-there seems almost a general wish of decrying the capacity and undervaluing the labour of the novelist, and slighting the performance which have only genius, wit and taste to recommend them.
It is easy to forget how full the world is of people, full to bursting, and each of them imaginable and consistently misimagined.john green
It is to be noted that when any part of this paper appears dull there is a design in it.Gertrude Stein
In 1915 Sophie Tauber and I carried out our first works in the simplest forms, using painting, embroidery and pasted paper (without using oil colors to avoid any reference with usual painting). These were probably the first manifestations of their kind, pictures that were their own reality, without meaning or cerebral intention. We rejected everything in the nature of a copy or a description, in order to give free flow to what was elemental and spontaneous.hans arp
More people are interested in trying to shuffle paper assets around than building lasting assets by producing real goods.akio morita
...the 'size' of science has doubled steadily every 15 years. In a century this means a factor of 100. For every single scientific paper or for every single scientist in 1670, there were 100 in 1770, 10,000 in 1870 and 1,000,000 in 1970.john ziman
They [the US] get our oil and give us a worthless piece of paper.mahmoud ahmadinejad
It is in front of the the paper that the artist creates himself.stéphane mallarmé
There was Molly Sullivan's wreath-twigs interspersed with small bits of typewritten paper which was said to symbolize the "challenge of expressing natural phenomena through the written word." Of all the artists to have grappled with this age-old dilemma, Sullivan was perhaps the first to do so with a wreath.Bryan Curtis
Let him be kept from paper, pen, and ink; So may he cease to write, and learn to think.Matthew Prior
During the 1950s and 1960s most of the work which was called cybernetics tended to focus on control systems in engineering or on applications of the concept of feedback in fields ranging from mathematics to sociology. At the 1970 meeting of the American Society for Cybernetics in Philadelphia Heinz von Foerster sought to redirect attention to the original interests which had led to the founding of the field of cybernetics. In a paper titled "Cybernetics of Cybernetics" he made a distinction between first order cybernetics, the cybernetics of observed systems, and second order cybernetics, the cybernetics of observing systems.
Hey, fellas! How about this for a headline for tomorrow's paper? 'French Fries'!
What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.john green
