Text Quotes
True, the name of the product wasn’t so great. Kindle? It was cute and sinister at the same time - worse than Edsel, or Probe, or Microsoft’s Bob. But one forgives a bad name. One even comes to be fond of a bad name, if the product itself is delightful  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) I think I am done with Wikipedia for the time being. But I have a secret hope. Someone recently proposed a Wikimorgue - a bin of broken dreams where all rejects could still be read, as long as they weren’t libelous or otherwise illegal  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) I hadn’t played any music since freshman year of college, more than thirty years ago, so I had to relearn everything. I started writing songs. Some were dance and trance songs (I listen to them a lot while I’m writing), and some were love songs, because that after all is what music is about - dancing and trancing and love and love’s setbacks  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) I keep thinking I’ll enjoy suspense novels, and sometimes I do. I’ve read about 20 Dick Francis novels  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) From my music training, I knew that, some Spanish rhythms apart, 5/4 is a time signature used only in the modern era. Holst’s Mars from the Planets is 5/4. But if you speak lines of poetry in that pattern you just end up hitting the off-beats. It’s only when you add a rest - a sixth beat - that it sounds as it surely should sound  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) Updike was the first to take the penile sensorium under the wing of elaborate metaphorical prose  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) In the novel, I can change things and simplify, and make events work towards whatever meanings I’m trying to get at more efficiently.  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) It’s troubling to see how often Winston Churchill is a proponent of massive programs that are really aimed at civilians - starvation blockades and chemical warfare stockpiles and so on.  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) I did not know that the planning for biological and chemical warfare was so widespread in England, and even in France before France fell. It was news to me that there had been talk, even in the First World War, of dropping Colorado beetles on German potato crops and that kind of thing.  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) But spending your life concentrating on death is like watching a whole movie and thinking only about the credits that are going to roll at the end. It’s a mistake of emphasis  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) I blush easily. I have difficulty meeting people’s eye, difficulty with public speaking, the normal afflictions of the shy, but not to a paralysing degree.  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) I ordered a Kindle 2 from Amazon. How could I not? There were banner ads for it all over the Web. Whenever I went to the Amazon Web site, I was urged to buy one  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) History isn’t a seesaw. If you have a really bad regime on one side, the actions on the other side don’t automatically become good. It doesn’t work that way.  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) I was very shy and somewhat awkward. I studied too hard. And to have this exciting dorm life was a whole new thing.  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) I like shelves full of books in a library, but if all books become electronic, the task of big research libraries remains the same - keep what’s published in the form in which it appeared.  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) Many good poets are really essayists who write very short essays  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) You can register a political objection in a number of ways  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) The function of a great library is to store obscure books  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) Wikipedia flourished partly because it was a shrine to altruism  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) I’ve always thought of myself as shy  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) You need the art in order to love the life  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) Poetry is prose in slow motion  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) In my case, adulthood itself was not an advance, although it was a useful waymark  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) Shoes are the first adult machines we are given to master  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) I no longer want to live in an apartment furnished with forklifts and backhoes  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) Rarely do pens go dry in restaurants  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) Most writers are secretly worried that they’re not really writers. That it’s all been happenstance, something came together randomly, the letters came together, and they won’t coalesce ever again  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) Most good novelists have been women or homosexuals. The novel is the triumphant evolved creation, one increasingly has to think, of these two groups, who have cooperated more closely in this domain than in any other  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) That was the problem with reading: you always had to pick up again at the very thing that had made you stop reading the day before  (Nicholson Baker Quotes) Until a friend or relative has applied a particular proverb to your own life, or until you’ve watched him apply the proverb to his own life, it has no power to sway you  (Nicholson Baker Quotes)
