Within these margins I find my serenity - with a blank page and a pencil, I am set free.Jordyn McKenzie Pencil'd Sayings By Jordyn McKenzie: Within these margins I find my serenity - with a blank page and a pencil,
It's a child's world, full of separate places. Give me a paper and pencil now and ask me to draw a map of the fields I roamed when I was small, and I cannot do it. But change the question, and ask me to list what was there and I can fill pages. The wood ant's nest. The newt pond. The oak covered in marble galls. The birches by the motorway fence with fly agarics at their feet. These things were the waypoints of my world. And other places became magic through happenstance. When I found a huge red underwing moth behind the electricity junction box at the end of my road, that box became a magic place. I needed to check behind it every time I walked past, though nothing was ever there. I'd run to check the place where once I'd caught a grass snake, look up at the tree that one afternoon had held a roosting owl. These places had a magical importance, a pull on me that other places did not, however devoid of life they were in all the visits since.Helen Macdonald Pencil'd Sayings By Helen Macdonald: It's a child's world, full of separate places. Give me a paper and pencil now
A programming language is for thinking about programs, not for expressing programs you've already thought of. It should be a pencil, not a pen.Paul Graham Pencil'd Sayings By Paul Graham: A programming language is for thinking about programs, not for expressing programs you've already thought
Since the moment I could hold a pencil, I have spent nearly all day every day writing. And there is not an age group that I have not written for. You can read me from birth 'til death.Kate Forsyth Pencil'd Sayings By Kate Forsyth: Since the moment I could hold a pencil, I have spent nearly all day every
As soon as you take out a pencil and paper with the Indians, you're one thing to them - an anthropologist - and what they tell to anthropologists is always distorted.Ruth Beebe Hill Pencil'd Sayings By Ruth Beebe Hill: As soon as you take out a pencil and paper with the Indians, you're one
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is perfect in the same way that The Great Gatsby is perfect. Take a pencil and read these books, looking for something that doesn't sound right, something you'd want to change. You'll leave the page untouched.William McKeen Pencil'd Sayings By William McKeen: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is perfect in the same way that The Great
Then my verse I dishonor, my pictures despise, my person degrade and my temper chastise; and the pen is my terror, the pencil my shame; and my talents I bury, and dead is my fame.William Blake Pencil'd Sayings By William Blake: Then my verse I dishonor, my pictures despise, my person degrade and my temper chastise;
For one that comes with a pencil to sketch or sing, a thousand come with an axe or rifle. What a coarse and imperfect use Indiansand hunters make of nature!

I've been actively engaged with mythic imagery ever since I picked up that Rackham book, but it really came into focus for me when I moved from London to the country. As I walked the extraordinary landscape of Dartmoor, I looked at the trees and the rocks and the hills and I could see the personality in those forms ... then they metamorphosed under my pencil into faeries, goblins and trolls. After Alan and I published "Faeries", he moved on from the subject of faery folklore to illustrate Tolkien and other literary works ... while I discovered that my own exploration of Faerieland had only just begun. In the countryside, the old stories seemed to come alive around me; the faeries were a tangible aspect of the landscape, pulses of spirit, emotion, and light. They "insisted" on taking form under my pencil, emerging on the page before me cloaked in archetypal shapes drawn from nature and myth. I'd attracted their attention, you see, and they hadn't finished with me yet.Brian Froud Pencil'd Sayings By Brian Froud: I've been actively engaged with mythic imagery ever since I picked up that Rackham book,
You should always have a pencil skirt. I think knees are the ugliest part of anybody's anatomy, so I'd look for ones that hit at the knee or right below.Annabel Tollman Pencil'd Sayings By Annabel Tollman: You should always have a pencil skirt. I think knees are the ugliest part of
And it was then I began to realize for the first time that there are two distinct sides to a writer of fiction. First, there is the side he displays to the public, that of an ordinary person like anyone else, a person who does ordinary things and speaks ordinary language. Second, there is the secret side, which comes out in him only after he has closed the door of his workroom and is completely alone. It is then that he slips into another world altogether, a world where his imagination takes over and he finds himself actually living in the places he is writing about at that moment. I myself, if you want to know, fall into a kind of trance, and everything around me disappears. I see only the point of my pencil moving over the paper, and quite often two hours go by as though they were a couple of seconds.Roald Dahl Pencil'd Sayings By Roald Dahl: And it was then I began to realize for the first time that there are

I've been blessed with good eyebrows, and I've worked very hard for them. Get a good brow pencil, fill them in a bit, make them perfect, and I guarantee you'll feel better.

Stothard learned the art of combining colors by closely studying butterflies wings; he would often say that no one knew what he owed to these tiny insects.

Life without you is like a broken pencil, there's no point.Tyga Pencil'd Sayings By Tyga: Life without you is like a broken pencil, there's no point.
If you were extremely unlucky, the forest spiders would get to you first and lay their eggs in you." "Why is that considered extremely unlucky?" "You'd still be alive when the eggs hatched." "That is probably the most disgusting thing I've ever heard," Shakespeare muttered. He pulled out a scrap of paper and a pencil. "I've got to make a note of that.Michael Scott Pencil'd Sayings By Michael Scott: If you were extremely unlucky, the forest spiders would get to you first and lay
It is hard for me to believe that Miss Groby ever saw any work of literature from far enough away to know what it meant. She was forever climbing up the margins of books and crawling between their lines for the little gold of phrase, making marks with a pencil. As Palamides hunted the Questing Beast, she hunted the Figure of Speech. She hunted it through the clangorous halls of Shakespeare and through the green forests of Scott.James Thurber Pencil'd Sayings By James Thurber: It is hard for me to believe that Miss Groby ever saw any work of
I always gave her a book. An old hardback from the same section in the used bookstore where you'd find Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew, and musty scrawled-in Hobbits, the painted paper covers often ripped or gone ...
My favorite was a sort of illustrated guidebook of pond creatures on which a very young child had written in pencil on each page under the picture of an otter
I love otter
Under a muskrat:
I love muskrat
Beaver:
I love beaver
Peter Heller Pencil'd Sayings By Peter Heller: I always gave her a book. An old hardback from the same section in the
In middle school, I had this one teacher who would kick me out all the time. He just didn't like me. I could ask a person next to me to borrow a pencil, and he'd kick me out of class. Besides that, I've never been in trouble.Arnaz Battle Pencil'd Sayings By Arnaz Battle: In middle school, I had this one teacher who would kick me out all the
Don't waste time looking for a better pencil: learn to write better.Seth Godin Pencil'd Sayings By Seth Godin: Don't waste time looking for a better pencil: learn to write better.
Still I should paint my own places best; painting is with me but another word for feeling, and I associate "my careless boyhood" with all that lies on the banks of the Stour; those scenes made me a painter, and I am grateful; that is, I had often thought of pictures of them before ever I touched a pencil, and your picture ['The White Horse'] is one of the strongest instance I can recollect of it.John Constable Pencil'd Sayings By John Constable: Still I should paint my own places best; painting is with me but another word
The little one-story house was as neat as a fresh pinafore. The front lawn was cut lovingly and very green. The smooth composition driveway was free of grease spots from standing cars, and the hedge that bordered it looked as though the barber came every day.
The white door had a knocker with a tiger's head, a go-to-hell window and a dingus that let someone inside talk to someone outside without even opening the little window.
I'd have given a mortgage on my left leg to live in a house like that. I didn't think I ever would.
(The Pencil)
Raymond Chandler Pencil'd Sayings By Raymond Chandler: The little one-story house was as neat as a fresh pinafore. The front lawn was
It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and begins to move, all I can do is trot along behind him with a paper and pencil trying to keep up long enough to put down what he says and does.William Faulkner Pencil'd Sayings By William Faulkner: It begins with a character, usually, and once he stands up on his feet and

Why, did you know that if a beaver two feet long with a tail a foot and a half long can build a dam twelve feet high and six feet wide in two days, all you would need to build Boulder Dam is a beaver sixty-eight feet long with a fifty-one-foot tail?"
"Where would you find a beaver that big?" grumbled the Humbug as his pencil point snapped.
"I'm sure I don't know," he replied, "but if you did, you'd certainly know what to do with him.
Norton Juster Pencil'd Sayings By Norton Juster: Why, did you know that if a beaver two feet long with a tail a
I went to the library. I looked at the magazines, at the pictures in them. One day I went to the bookshelves, and pulled out a book. It was Winesburg, Ohio.. I sat at a long mahogany table and began to read. All at once my world turned over. The sky fell in. The book held me. The tears came. My heart beat fast. I read until my eyes burned. I took the book home. I read another Anderson. I read and I read, and I was heartsick and lonely and in love with a book, many books, until it came naturally, and I sat there with a pencil and a long tablet, and tried to write, until I felt I could not go on because the words would not come as they did in Anderson, they only came like drops of blood from my heart.John Fante Pencil'd Sayings By John Fante: I went to the library. I looked at the magazines, at the pictures in them.

What use is my mind? Granted that it enables me to hail a bus and to pay my fare. But once I am inside my studio, what use is my mind? I have my model, my pencil, my paints. My mind doesn't interest me.Edgar Degas Pencil'd Sayings By Edgar Degas: What use is my mind? Granted that it enables me to hail a bus and
During the heat of the space race in the 1960s, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration decided it needed a ballpoint pen to write in the zero gravity confines of its space capsules. After considerable research and development, the Astronaut Pen was developed at a cost of approximately $1 million US. The pen worked and also enjoyed some modest success as a novelty item back here on earth. The Soviet Union, faced with the same problem, used a pencil.Neil DeGrasse Tyson Pencil'd Sayings By Neil DeGrasse Tyson: During the heat of the space race in the 1960s, the US National Aeronautics and
When I do a film score, I am basically nothing more than a fancy pencil for hire. I don't own any of the music when I am - it belongs to the film company - and likewise, when I am done, even if I come up with something astounding that I may want to revisit ... in the world of film composition, you can't do that.James Horner Pencil'd Sayings By James Horner: When I do a film score, I am basically nothing more than a fancy pencil
I don't much enjoy travelling, but I have always longed to take a slow train to Russia. I'd like to go alone - like writers do - with only a pencil and piece of paper as company. I'd take my sketchbook and note down all the wonderful details of other travellers.Jane Birkin Pencil'd Sayings By Jane Birkin: I don't much enjoy travelling, but I have always longed to take a slow train
The Thirties had seen the first generation of American industrial designers; until the Thirties, all pencil sharpeners looked like pencil sharpeners - your basic Victorian mechanism, perhaps with a curlicue of decorative trim. After the advent of the designers, some pencil sharpeners looked as though they'd been put together in wind tunnels. For the most part, the change was only skin-deep; under the streamlined chrome shell, you'd find the same Victorian mechanism. Which made a certain kind of sense, because the most successful American designers had been recruited from the ranks of Broadway theater designers. It was all a stage set, a series of elaborate props for playing at living in the future.William Gibson Pencil'd Sayings By William Gibson: The Thirties had seen the first generation of American industrial designers; until the Thirties, all
If somebody writes a great poem, people don't run around applauding the pencil, saying 'Oh, what a great pencil' ... I'm a pencil in God's hands.Keith Green Pencil'd Sayings By Keith Green: If somebody writes a great poem, people don't run around applauding the pencil, saying 'Oh,
A poet is a painter in his way, he draws to the life, but in another kind; we draw the nobler part, the soul and the mind; the pictures of the pen shall outlast those of the pencil, and even worlds themselves.Aphra Behn Pencil'd Sayings By Aphra Behn: A poet is a painter in his way, he draws to the life, but in

Winckelmann wished to live with a work of art as a friend. The saying is true of pen and pencil. Fresh lustre shoots from Lycidas in a twentieth perusal. The portraits of Clarendon are mellowed by every year of reflection.Robert Aris Willmott Pencil'd Sayings By Robert Aris Willmott: Winckelmann wished to live with a work of art as a friend. The saying is
So, did you stab Edward Cullen with a pencil or what? I've never seen him act like that.Stephenie Meyer Pencil'd Sayings By Stephenie Meyer: So, did you stab Edward Cullen with a pencil or what? I've never seen him
The basic problem for Lawrence was that he was lazy. He had figured out that everything was much simpler if, like Superman with his X-ray vision, you just stared through the cosmetic distractions and saw the underlying mathematical skeleton. Once you found the math in a thing, you knew everything about it, and you could manipulate it to your heart's content with nothing more than a pencil and a napkin. He saw it in the curve of the silver bars on his glockenspiel, saw it in the catenary arch of a bridge and in the capacitor-studded drum of Atanasoff and Berry's computing machine. Actually pounding on the glockenspiel, riveting the bridge together, or trying to figure out why the computing machine wasn't working were not as interesting to him.Neal Stephenson Pencil'd Sayings By Neal Stephenson: The basic problem for Lawrence was that he was lazy. He had figured out that

You won't get extra marks for being teacher's pet. You won't go to the top of the class. There is no class. There is no teacher. Or if there is then you have to understand that he or she doesn't actually like you. You are not being marked out of ten for how neatly you sharpen your pencil and how lovely your handwriting is. You are not going to get a gold star. You are not the fucking flower monitor and no one cares what you do.Joanna Kavenna Pencil'd Sayings By Joanna Kavenna: You won't get extra marks for being teacher's pet. You won't go to the top
Eva is guarded in a schoolroom down on Earth, chewing her pencil, dreaming of being with me, I know it, me, looking down from amongst exfoliation apostles, dreaming of being with her.David Mitchell Pencil'd Sayings By David Mitchell: Eva is guarded in a schoolroom down on Earth, chewing her pencil, dreaming of being
When I travel, I always take my Winsor & Newton watercolor kit, which is the size of a pack of cigarettes when folded up. I bought my first one in the 1980s. It was handy to bring on trips, and I packed it into a leather pouch along with a couple of brushes, a pencil, an eraser and paper.Susan Minot Pencil'd Sayings By Susan Minot: When I travel, I always take my Winsor & Newton watercolor kit, which is the
What is the difference between a mathematician and a philosopher?

A mathematician uses a pencil, paper, and a wastebasket.
The philosopher needs only the pencil and paper.
Matthew Rave Pencil'd Sayings By Matthew Rave: What is the difference between a mathematician and a philosopher?A mathematician uses a pencil, paper,
Normally my clients were my mother, my grandmother, and my dad, and I would sell them the issues with a great color cover. There was a story I remember called 'The Invader,' and it had an invisible dome covering a city, with a giant tentacled monster eating everybody in sight, and people trying to drill a hole in the dome. And I did these epic Prismacolor pencil illustrations and sold out the three issues to my captive audience.Guillermo Del Toro Pencil'd Sayings By Guillermo Del Toro: Normally my clients were my mother, my grandmother, and my dad, and I would sell
I'm naturally a mousy blonde, so I dye my hair, and my eyebrows would disappear if I didn't get through at least a pencil a month.Beth Ditto Pencil'd Sayings By Beth Ditto: I'm naturally a mousy blonde, so I dye my hair, and my eyebrows would disappear

I do not know if you bridle your pen, but when my pencil moves, it is necesary to let it go, or - crash! ... nothing more.Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec Pencil'd Sayings By Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec: I do not know if you bridle your pen, but when my pencil moves, it
I wonder what Lena is doing now. I always wonder what Lena is doing. Rachel, too: both my girls, my beautiful, big-eyed girls. But I worry about Rachel less. Rachel was always harder than Lena, somehow. More defiant, more stubborn, less feeling . Even as a girl, she frightened me - fierce and fiery-eyed, with a temper like my father's once was.
But Lena . . . little darling Lena, with her tangle of dark hair and her flushed, chubby cheeks. She used to rescue spiders from the pavement to keep them from getting squashed; quiet, thoughtful Lena, with the sweetest lisp to break your heart. To break my heart: my wild, uncured, erratic, incomprehensible heart. I wonder whether her front teeth still overlap; whether she still confuses the words pretzel and pencil occasionally; whether the wispy brown hair grew straight and long, or began to curl.
I wonder whether she believes the lies they told her.
Lauren Oliver Pencil'd Sayings By Lauren Oliver: I wonder what Lena is doing now. I always wonder what Lena is doing. Rachel,
I sit in the dark and wait for a little flame to appear at the end of my pencil.Billy Collins Pencil'd Sayings By Billy Collins: I sit in the dark and wait for a little flame to appear at the
I didn't want to be a sideman. My own style was coming out and I was into my own writing. I wrote a whole album, I arranged it all with pencil and paper. I did eventually do a lot of work with my father, but that was different. I was living at home; I wasn't a starving musician. I wasn't spoiled, but I wasn't going to have some producer come in and tell me what to play.Shuggie Otis Pencil'd Sayings By Shuggie Otis: I didn't want to be a sideman. My own style was coming out and I
Did I tell you I finally found the perfect page-cutter? It's a pearl-handled fruit knife. My mother left me a dozen of them, I keep one in the pencil cup on my desk. Maybe I go with the wrong kind of people but i'm just not likely to have twelve guests all sitting around simultaneously eating fruit.Helene Hanff Pencil'd Sayings By Helene Hanff: Did I tell you I finally found the perfect page-cutter? It's a pearl-handled fruit knife.
It's a lot easier to teach someone how to use a computer than it is to teach someone how to be an artist, so we figured if they can animate with a pencil, we can teach them how to animate with a computer.Victor Navone Pencil'd Sayings By Victor Navone: It's a lot easier to teach someone how to use a computer than it is

I am but a small pencil in the hand of a writing GodMother Teresa Pencil'd Sayings By Mother Teresa: I am but a small pencil in the hand of a writing God
No one can write their real religious life with pen or pencil. It is written only in actions, and its seal is our character, not our orthodoxy. Whether we, our neighbor, or God is the judge, absolutely the only value of our religious life to ourselves or to anyone is what it fits us for and enables us to do.Wilfred Grenfell Pencil'd Sayings By Wilfred Grenfell: No one can write their real religious life with pen or pencil. It is written
It's like my whole world is coming undone, but when I write, my pencil is a needle and thread, and I'm stitching the scraps back together.Julia Alvarez Pencil'd Sayings By Julia Alvarez: It's like my whole world is coming undone, but when I write, my pencil is
It takes a fictionalized or invented excursion to buy a pencil in the winter dusk of London as an excuse to explore darkness, wandering, invention, the annihilation of identity, the enormous adventure that transpires in the mind while the body travels a quotidian course.Rebecca Solnit Pencil'd Sayings By Rebecca Solnit: It takes a fictionalized or invented excursion to buy a pencil in the winter dusk
I grew up with an impatience with the anti-scientific. So I'm a bit miffed with our current love affair with all things Eastern. If I sneeze on the set, 40 people hand me echinacea. But I'd no sooner take that than eat a pencil. Maybe that's why I took up boxing. It's my response to men in white pajamas feeling each other's chi.Hugh Laurie Pencil'd Sayings By Hugh Laurie: I grew up with an impatience with the anti-scientific. So I'm a bit miffed with
I'd rather have a pencil and paper and do all my own calculations rather than rely on a machine. And I'll do most calculations in double digit multiples as quick as the machine.Lindsay Fox Pencil'd Sayings By Lindsay Fox: I'd rather have a pencil and paper and do all my own calculations rather than
I got a statistic for you right now. Grab your pencil, Doug. There are five billion trees in the world. I looked it up. Under every tree is a shadow, right? So, then, what makes night? I'll tell you: shadows crawling out from under five billion trees! Think of it! Shadows running around in the air, muddying the waters you might say. If only we could figure a way to keep those darn five billion shadows under those trees, we could stay up half the night, Doug, because there'd be no night!Ray Bradbury Pencil'd Sayings By Ray Bradbury: I got a statistic for you right now. Grab your pencil, Doug. There are five
Yeah. I guess I'm a color-inside-the-lines girl. Worse, really - I'd rather shade inside the lines with a nice, light 4H pencil. Something dark like a 5B or 6B? That's me going nuts. He laughed, stretching out his long legsJenn Bennett Pencil'd Sayings By Jenn Bennett: Yeah. I guess I'm a color-inside-the-lines girl. Worse, really - I'd rather shade inside the

Do you sleep in your suits, too?"
He dragged his gaze from the sweater she held up to her and completed a slow perusal starting at her totally reasonable three-and-a-half-inch metallic silver heels, up her bare calves, across the fitted pear-green pencil skirt, over her winter-white cashmere sweater and stopping briefly on her lips before reaching her eyes. She'd been stark naked, pressed up against a sixteenth-floor window, having one of the best orgasms of her life from a lover-s tongue and hadn't been as turned on as she was at that moment. Fire licked its way across her skin, flicking at all of her sensitive spots until her entire body vibrated.
"Do I sleep in my suits? Do you really want to know?" he asked, his voice low with just enough dominating arrogance in it to make her shiver.
Avery Flynn Pencil'd Sayings By Avery Flynn: Do you sleep in your suits, too?"He dragged his gaze from the sweater she held
Let China's earth, enrich'd with colour'd stains,
Pencil'd with gold, and streak'd with azure veins,
The grateful flavour of the Indian leaf,
Or Mocho's sunburnt berry glad receive.'

Elizabeth Gaskell Pencil'd Sayings By Elizabeth Gaskell: Let China's earth, enrich'd with colour'd stains, Pencil'd with gold, and streak'd with azure veins,
I couldn't make my pencil scratch out the lines of Britni/Brenna's face. Couldn't make it curve into the contours of Dad's guilty eyes
his big secret blown up. Would he marry her? Would they have children together? I couldn't make myself imagine Dad holding some creamy-faced baby, cooing down at it, telling it he loved it. Taking it to baseball games. Living some life he'd probably consider his "real life," the one he deserved rather than the one he got.
Jennifer Brown Pencil'd Sayings By Jennifer Brown: I couldn't make my pencil scratch out the lines of Britni/Brenna's face. Couldn't make it
Oh! why was I born with a different face? why was I not born like the rest of my race? when
I look,each one starts! when I speak, I offend; then Im silent & passive & lose every friend. Then
my verse I dishonour, my pictures despise, my person degrade & my temper chastise; and the pen is my terror, the pencil my shame; all my talents I bury, and dead is my fame. Im either too low or too highly prized; when elate I m envy'd, when meek Im despis'd
William Blake Pencil'd Sayings By William Blake: Oh! why was I born with a different face? why was I not born like
You'll have to learn to forgive," he said. "For if you don't, you know what will happen?"
"What, Doctor?" I croaked, for my outburst had exhausted me.
"It will destroy you," he said as he handed me the tea.
A tear came into my eye when he said it for I knew it was true and I would have loved to be able to do it (not because of its destroying me but because it was right, and deep down I knew that) but I couldn't and the more I thought of it the more the blood came coursing to my head so that whenever I'd write I'd find myself clutching the pencil so tight I broke the lead how many times I don't know, hundreds.

America has had to deal with eccentric dictators in the past: Idi Amin, Muammar Qaddafi, Ming the Merciless ... but now the security of the world is threatened by Kim Jong-il, a nerdy, pompadoured, platform shoe-wearer who looks like something you'd put on the end of your child's pencil.Jon Stewart Pencil'd Sayings By Jon Stewart: America has had to deal with eccentric dictators in the past: Idi Amin, Muammar Qaddafi,

What are you working on?" Elizabeth asked. Nate could hear her tapping a pencil on her desk. She took notes during their conversations. He didn't know what she did with the notes, but it bothered him.
"I have a lecture at the sanctuary in four days." Why, why had he told her? Why? Now she'd rattle down the mountain in her ancient Mercedes that looked like a Nazi staff car, sit in the audience, and ask all the questions that she knew in advance he couldn't answer.

I walked over to the paper and bent as the pencil began scribbling across it.
You look OK. Are you OK?
"Liz?" A stupid question. Liz was the only poltergeist I knew. But if she was here, that meant. "Chloe?" My heart started thudding again. "Where's Chloe. Did they - ?"
She's outside.
I took a deep breath. "Good. Okay. My dad's there, too?"
I watched the paper. Nothing happened.
"Liz? My dad is with her, right? She called him, didn't she?"
Couldn't.
"What do you mean she couldn't. She has her cell - " No, she didn't. We hadn't taken them into the forest. If Chloe had managed to follow me straight from there ...
I swore. "Tell her to get to a pay phone. Call collect. Get my dad and - "
No time. They're packing the van.
"Then you ride with me. You can find out where we go, and return and Chloe - "
We're getting you out.
"What? No. Absolutely not. Tell Chloe - "
Girls rule :D

Yeah, well. If you're staying here in hopes of making out with Alaska, I sure wish you wouldn't. If you unmoor her from the rock that is Jake, God have mercy on us all. That would be some drama, indeed. And as a rule, I like to avoid drama."
"It's not because I want to make out with her."
"Hold on." He grabbed a pencil and scrawled excitedly at the paper as if he'd just made a mathematical breakthrough and then looked back up at me. "I just did some calculations, and I've been able to determine that you're full of shit." And he was right.

Written in ink, in German, in a small, hopelessly sincere handwriting, were the words, "Dear God, life is hell." Nothing led up to or away from it. Alone on the page, and in the sickly stillness of the room, the words appeared to have the statue of an uncontestable, even classic indictment. X stared at the page for several minutes, trying, against heavy odds, not to be taken in. Then, with far more zeal than he had done anything in weeks, he picked up a pencil stub and wrote down under the inscription, in English, "Fathers and teachers, I ponder, 'What is hell?' I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love." He started to write Dostoevski's name under the inscription, but saw - with fright that ran through his whole body - that what he had written was almost entirely illegible. He shut the book.J.D. Salinger Pencil'd Sayings By J.D. Salinger: Written in ink, in German, in a small, hopelessly sincere handwriting, were the words, "Dear
I ... What are you saying, Zsadist?" she stammered, even though she'd heard every word.
He glanced back down at the pencil in his hand and then turned to the table. Flipping the spiral notebook to a new page, he bent way over and labored on top of the paper for quite a while. Then he ripped the sheet free.
His hand was shaking as he held it out. "It's messy."
Bella took the paper. In a child's uneven block letters there were three words: I LOVE YOU
Her lips flattened tight as her eyes stung. The handwriting got wavy and then disappeared.

"Maybe you can't read it," he said in a small voice. "I can do it over."

She shook her head. "I can read it just fine. It's ... beautiful."
"I don't expect anything back. I mean ... I know that you don't ... feel that for me anymore. But I wanted you to know. It's important that you knew.

I wish you'd come for six months. I seem to have got a big burst of energy writing this whereas sometimes I haven't enough strength to hold pen or pencil. You will find that one day as you get older. I worry about you and your traveling to the different places. Nowhere is safe now. My undying love to you.Edna O'Brien Pencil'd Sayings By Edna O'Brien: I wish you'd come for six months.

If I closed my eyes, I could almost count those soft hairs on the back of her neck. One day I'd even leaned forward, pretending to drop my pencil, and inhaled her until the top of my head started to steam. A scent of butterscotch wafted off of her, and it was all I could do not to plunge my face into her shag.Jerry Stahl Pencil'd Sayings By Jerry Stahl: If I closed my eyes, I could almost count those soft hairs on the back
I was a mod when I was a kid. I'd be in Italian pencil-leg trousers with those bowling shoes you wear outside and a Fred Perry polo shirt with a V-neck sweater. It was like an Essex uniform - a very specific look.Stephen Moyer Pencil'd Sayings By Stephen Moyer: I was a mod when I was a kid. I'd be in Italian pencil-leg trousers
After so many years of fighting to pour herself into skintight, low-rise jeans and binding pencil skirts and slacks that always felt like a vise around her waist, she found leggings were God's apology to women everywhere. For the first time, something that was in style actually flattered her figure perfectly by hiding her less-than-stellar mid- and rear section while accentuating her reasonably shapely legs. Every day she pulled a pair on she offered a silent thank-you to their inventor and a quiet prayer that they'd remain in fashion just a little bit longer.Lauren Weisberger Pencil'd Sayings By Lauren Weisberger: After so many years of fighting to pour herself into skintight, low-rise jeans and binding
Stanley always followed the rules. All sorts of things could go wrong if you didn't.
So far he'd done 1:Upon Discovery of the Fire, Remain Calm.
Now he'd come to 2: Shout 'Fire!' in a Loud, Clear Voice.
'Fire!' he shouted, and then ticked off 2 with his pencil.
Next was: 3: Endeavour to Extinguish Fire If Possible.
Stanley went to the door and opened it. Flames and smoke billowed in. He stared at them for a moment, shook his head, and shut the door.
Paragraph 4 said: If Trapped by Fire, Endeavour to Escape. Do Not Open Doors If Warm. Do Not Use Stairs If Burning. If No Exit Presents Itself Remain Calm and Await a) Rescue or b) Death.

After a half hour, Antonio lured her away by throwing around words like technique and shading. I planned on joining her in the kitchen when the game ended, but decided against it when she grabbed a pencil and spoke rapidly as she sketched. I'd wanted her to be comfortable and I'd wanted to hang with my friends. Somehow, I got both my wishes.Katie McGarry Pencil'd Sayings By Katie McGarry: After a half hour, Antonio lured her away by throwing around words like technique and
Not a flower
But shows some touch, in freckle, streak or stain,
Of his unrivall'd pencil. He inspires
Their balmy odors, and imparts their hues,
And bathes their eyes with nectar, and includes
In grains as countless as the seaside sands,
The forms with which he sprinkles all the earth
Happy who walks with him!

When Charles Darwin was trying to decide whether he should propose to his cousin Emma Wedgwood, he got out a pencil and paper and weighed every possible consequence. In favor of marriage he listed children, companionship, and the 'charms of music and female chit-chat.' Against marriage he listed the 'terrible loss of time,' lack of freedom to go where he wished, the burden of visiting relatives, the expense and anxiety provoked by children, the concern that 'perhaps my wife won't like London,' and having less money to spend on books. Weighing one column against the other produced a narrow margin of victory, and at the bottom Darwin scrawled, 'Marry - Marry - Marry Q.E.D.' Quod erat demonstrandum, the mathematical sign-off that Darwin himself restated in English: 'It being proved necessary to Marry.Brian Christian Pencil'd Sayings By Brian Christian: When Charles Darwin was trying to decide whether he should propose to his cousin Emma
You ought to be able to explain why you're taking the job you're taking, why you're making the investment you're making, or whatever it may be. And if it can't stand applying pencil to paper, you'd better think it through some more. And if you can't write an intelligent answer to those questions, don't do it.Warren Buffett Pencil'd Sayings By Warren Buffett: You ought to be able to explain why you're taking the job you're taking, why
