The middle of a novel is a state of mind. Strange things happen in it. Time collapses. — Zadie Smith

Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By James Paul Gee: An academic discipline, or any other semiotic domain, for that matter, is not primarily content, An academic discipline, or any other semiotic domain, for that matter, is not primarily content, in the sense of facts and principles.

Oldster

It's like they're You know, my problem with most screenwriting is it is a blueprint. It's like they're afraid to write the damn thing. And I'm a writer. That's what I do. I want it to be written. I want it to work on the page, first and foremost. So when I'm writing the script, I'm not thinking about the viewer watching the movie. I'm thinking about the reader reading the script. — Quentin Tarantino
Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Timothy VanSlyke: Even if we grant that digital natives think and learn somewhat differently than older generations, Even if we grant that digital natives think and learn somewhat differently than older generations, we may be doing them a disservice to de-emphasize 'legacy' content such as reading, writing, and logical thinking, or to say that the methodologies we have used in the past are no longer relevant ...

the very sort of 'legacy' content that teachers have focused on since classical times — Timothy VanSlyke

Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By James Shapiro: We've inherited many ideas about writing that emerged in the eighteenth century, especially an interest We've inherited many ideas about writing that emerged in the eighteenth century, especially an interest in literature as both an expression and an exploration of the self. This development - part of what distinguishes the "modern" from the "early modern" - has shaped the work of many of our most celebrated authors, whose personal experiences indelibly and visibly mark their writing. It's fair to say that the fiction and poetry of many of the finest writers of the past century or so - and I'm thinking here of Conrad, Proust, Lawrence, Joyce, Woolf, Kafka, Plath, Ellison, Lowell, Sexton, Roth, and Coetzee, to name but a few - have been deeply autobiographical. The link between the life and the work is one of the things we're curious about and look for when we pick up the latest book by a favorite author. — James Shapiro

Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Dean Spade: Because my graduate academic training at law school was not one that included most of Because my graduate academic training at law school was not one that included most of the intellectual traditions I find useful for understanding the conditions and problems that most concern me - anti-colonial theories, Foucault, critical disability studies, prison studies and the like are rarely seen in standard US Law School curricula, where students are still fighting on many campuses to get a single class on race or poverty offered - I developed most of my thinking about these topics through activist reading groups and collaborative writing projects with other activist scholars. — Dean Spade

Zak: So while we need to provide people with technical skills that will help them find So while we need to provide people with technical skills that will help them find employment, we can't afford to neglect the even more basic skills -- reading, writing, thinking, feeling -- that allow them to become fully realized human beings who care about the world they live in and the people who share it with them. — Paul J.

Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Victor Giannini: Advice? Fail constantly. Because the word doesn't mean what you think it means, especially when Advice? Fail constantly. Because the word doesn't mean what you think it means, especially when you're an artist. I use the word artist to mean everything from songwriting to writing a novel to even writing video games. Anything that tells a story, which is almost any medium. Gotta take risks, you gotta go through multiple drafts which means you have to FAIL, a lot. So you won't always get the reaction you always want from every single person, so when you lose that fear of failure, when you stop even thinking of it as failure, and you push yourself farther, you'll take bigger risks, and eventually, after about six or seven hundred rejections, you'll find success. And you'll find a way of conveying what you really want to say, in the best manner. — Victor Giannini
Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Anne Jamison: Fanfiction is the madwoman in mainstream culture's attic, but the attic won't contain it forever. Fanfiction is the madwoman in mainstream culture's attic, but the attic won't contain it forever. Writing and reading fanfiction isn't just something you do; it's a way of thinking critically about the media you consume, of being aware of all the implicit assumptions that a canonical work carries with it, and of considering the possibility that those assumptions might not be the only way things have to be. — Anne Jamison
Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Terry Pratchett: Well, the traveling teachers do come through every few months," said the Baron."Yes, sir, I Well, the traveling teachers do come through every few months," said the Baron.
"Yes, sir, I know, sir, and they're useless, sir. They teach facts, not understanding. It's like teaching people about forests by showing them a saw. I want a proper school, sir, to teach reading and writing, and most of all thinking, sir, so people can find what they're good at, because someone doing what they really like is always an asset to any country, and too often people never find out until it's too late. — Terry Pratchett
Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Terry Pratchett: I want a proper school, sir, to teach reading and writing, and most of all I want a proper school, sir, to teach reading and writing, and most of all thinking, sir, so people can find out what they are good at, because someone doing what they really like is always an asset to any country, and too often people never find out until it is too late. There have been times, lately, when I dearly wished that I could change the past. Well, I can't, but I can change the present, so that when it becomes the past it will turn out to be a past worth having ... Learning is about finding out who you are, what you are, where you are and what you are standing on and what you are good at and what's over the horizon and, well, everything. Its about finding the place where you fit. I found the place where I fit, and I would like everybody else to find theirs. - Tiffany Aching — Terry Pratchett
Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Markus Zusak: It's insane to be a writer and not be a reader. When I'm writing I'm It's insane to be a writer and not be a reader. When I'm writing I'm more likely to be reading four or five books at once, just in bits and pieces rather than subjecting myself to a really brilliant book and thinking, "Well what's the point of me writing anything?" I'm more likely to read a book through when I take a break from writing. — Markus Zusak
Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Marie Luise Knott: Literature destabilizes thought by breaking open language and smuggling in sound, rhythm, and image--an invasion Literature destabilizes thought by breaking open language and smuggling in sound, rhythm, and image--an invasion of aesthetics. More easily than analytic writing, poetry can emancipate itself from the standard definitions of words, enabling a breakthrough to new (and perhaps wayward or even nonsensical) meaning, which can then develop after the fact--different at each new reading. Literary language is presumptuous. It dips into the unknown in order to get nearer to a truth different from that of the superficially visible. As the poet Franz Josef Czernin described it, it is as though one step after another into emptiness could become a ladder. Literary writing can take the writers themselves by surprise; it can disturb and disappoint them--for stirring up turmoil is inherent in metaphor. Thus with every flash of understanding that comes from hearing or reading a poem, the fundamental work of thinking is taken up anew. — Marie Luise Knott
Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Isaac D'Israeli: There is an art of reading, as well as an art of thinking, and an There is an art of reading, as well as an art of thinking, and an art of writing. — Isaac D'Israeli

Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Margaret Thatcher: For Dicey, writing in 1885, and for me reading him some seventy years later, the For Dicey, writing in 1885, and for me reading him some seventy years later, the rule of law still had a very English, or at least Anglo-Saxon, feel to it. It was later, through Hayek's masterpieces The Constitution of Liberty and Law, Legislation and Liberty that I really came to think this principle as having wider application. — Margaret Thatcher
Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By David Sedaris: I think I became a better writer after I started writing for the New Yorker. I think I became a better writer after I started writing for the New Yorker. Well, I know I did. And part of it was having my New Yorker editor and part of it is that was when I started really going on tour and reading things in front of an audience 30 times and then going back in the room and rewriting it and reading it and rewriting it. So you really get the rhythm of the sentences down and you really get the flow down and you get rid of stuff that's not important. — David Sedaris
Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Mark Vonnegut: The most radical, audacious thing to think is that there might be some point to The most radical, audacious thing to think is that there might be some point to working hard and thinking hard and reading hard and writing hard and trying to be of service — Mark Vonnegut

Reading Writing And Thinking Sayings By Kilroy J. Oldster: A program of active reading and writing might be the hardest form of thinking, but A program of active reading and writing might be the hardest form of thinking, but it is also the most organized methodology of self-education.

Reading is a form a joint mediation and writing represents the product of several authors' collective and collaborative minds at work. — Kilroy J. Oldster
