I still find the best way to understand a hospitalized patient whose care I am taking over is not by staring at the computer screen but by going to see the patient; it’s only at the bedside that I can figure out what is important.
Abraham Verghese
You’ve probably never thought about it before unless you happen to write for a living, but professional writers are doomed to spend most of their waking hours sitting by themselves at a desk, staring at a blank computer screen and waiting for lightning to strike.
Terry Teachout
I used to tape over the top corner of my computer screen so I couldn’t see what time it was. I like the idea that I’m just with the words and not knowing what’s going on with the world, when it’s lunch or dinner.
Michael Connelly
Nobody reads the disclosures that roll down your computer screen. You click ‘I agree’ but you don’t know what you’re agreeing to.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Just because someone can sit behind a computer screen and have a different name and hide themselves, they feel like they can do anything to anyone.
LeAnn Rimes
You write because you have an idea in your mind that feels so genuine, so important, so true. And yet, by the time this idea passes through the different filters of your mind, and into your hand, and onto the page or computer screen – it becomes distorted, and it’s been diminished.
Khaled Hosseini
Animation translates well to a small screen. When you look at Walt Disney or Chuck Jones – you know, Bugs Bunny – there really isn’t any difference if you watch on a very big screen or a computer screen.
Isabella Rossellini
I can’t read a computer screen and never use a calculator. It’s all in my head and by hand.
Simon Reuben
When I was growing up, I was an ’80s baby, so I remember the Sega Genesis and the first Nintendo. I grew up in a time when we first started playing video games on a computer screen. Now there are headsets and your body’s the controller.
Mehcad Brooks
Any excuse to get away from the computer screen is welcome.
Stefan Sagmeister
I have a computer screen near my seat where I monitor the overall health of the vehicle and pick up any problems that might be occurring early on or once we see any kind of a malfunction or anything unusual that’s happening, we can look at the data and figure out what that is.
Laurel Clark
Unlike sitting at a computer screen, printing is very direct and hands-on.
Christian Marclay
Every night, I will write until I’m done. Until my eyes are burning and tearing, and I can’t see the computer screen anymore, till I finish the script, till I get to the point where I’m happy stopping, till I get everything off my plate, because I hate going to bed with a full plate. It makes me very neurotic.
Julie Plec
If you are stuck on a problem, go for a walk and think about something else for a little bit. Going for a walk is very helpful for a writer because if you are staring at a blank page of a computer screen there is all this pressure.
Raphael Bob-Waksberg
I said the screen will kill the reader, and it has: the movie screen in the beginning, the television screen, and now the coup de grace, the computer screen.
Philip Roth
We would naturally prefer not to reckon with the worst of what people do or say on the margins, but we have to. Especially if it seems possible to trace a line from vicious rhetoric on a computer screen to violent action.
Charlie Sykes
Specialization makes it easy to forget about the filth of the coal-fired power plant that is lighting this pristine computer screen, or the backbreaking labor it took to pick the strawberries for my cereal, or the misery of the hog that lived and died so I could enjoy my bacon.
Michael Pollan
I am not one of those people who string their exes along. Instead, I run and hide: under the covers, behind my computer screen, on opposite coasts of the country.
Jami Attenberg
‘You’ve got mail!’ exclaims the cheery automaton at America Online. The flag on the mailbox icon waves invitingly on my computer screen. For a second, I’m 10 years old again, waiting for the postman’s whistle to slice the stillness of an Australian afternoon.
Geraldine Brooks
When I’m sitting at the desk not being able to write line one, it’s silence and despair! It’s not so easy to put the pen to the legal pad or type the first sentence on the computer screen.
Erica Jong
I carry an umbrella when I am outdoors and always wear sunscreen, even when I am sitting in front of a computer screen! I never touch coffee or other caffeinated drinks.
Fan Bingbing
You know when you’re writing, and it’s just you and the computer screen, and you never think that anyone is ever going to read it… you’re able to say private things when you’re writing.
James St. James
Just being able to get paid to do something you love is a wonderful thing. That said, a writer’s daily routine, unless you’re Dominick Dunne, isn’t exactly glamorous. Much of it amounts to drudgery, staring at a computer screen all day in a room by yourself, juggling nouns and verbs to make a demanding editor happy.
Bryan Burrough
I’m lucky because the most dangerous thing that could happen to me is that someone will say something mean on a computer screen miles away, and so I feel like if that’s all that I’m facing, then why would I not use my platform to talk about things?
Amandla Stenberg
A wonderful thing about a book, in contrast to a computer screen, is that you can take it to bed with you.
