Quote Garden - The importance of a piece of paper

Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky, we fell them down and turn them into paper, that we may record our emptiness.
Khalil Gibran

If I lose the light of the sun, I will write by candlelight, moonlight, no light. If I lose paper and ink, I will write in blood on forgotten walls. I will write always. I will capture nights all over the world and bring them to you.
Henry Rollins

All I need is a sheet of paper and something to write with, and then I can turn the world upside down.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Being a writer is a very peculiar sort of a job: it's always you versus a blank sheet of paper (or a blank screen) and quite often the blank piece of paper wins.
Neil Gaiman

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.
Anne Lamott
