Typewriter Quotations

There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.
Ernest Hemingway

I was set free because my greatest fear had been realized, and I still had a daughter who I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.
J. K. Rowling

My two fingers on a typewriter have never connected with my brain. My hand on a pen does. A fountain pen, of course. Ball-point pens are only good for filling out forms on a plane.
Graham Greene

I like the sound a typewriter makes.
Paul Auster

The great fun in my life has been getting up every morning and rushing to the typewriter because some new idea has hit me.
Ray Bradbury
