"For weeks past he had been making ready for this moment, and it had never crossed his mind that anything would be needed except courage. The actual writing would be easy.

He owned thousands of acres of timberland and he didn't want hemp to be used for paper, he wanted to force everyone to buy his trees.

"With Erin [from Paper Girls], I wanted to show what she might look like when she's 40, and I wanted it to feel authentic. In terms of inspiration I ended up using my wife for a lot of it.

"A new thing I've been doing is just making sure I clear off my desk and try to only touch a piece of paper once, so I get the mail, open it up, deal with it then.

"In interior decorating, the pig's actually quite there. It's used in paint for the texture, but also for the glossiness. In sandpaper, bone glue is actually the glue between the sand and the paper.

"We didn't become the most prosperous country in the world just by rewarding greed and recklessness. We didn't come this far by letting the special interests run wild.

"Money, when considered as the fruit of many years' industry, as the reward of labor, sweat and toil, as the widow's dowry and children's portion, and as the means of procuring the necessaries and alleviating the afflictions of life, and making old age a scene of rest, has something in it sacred that is not to be sported with, or trusted to the airy bubble of paper currency." - Thomas Paine

Photographers might respond to an old man's face, or an Arbus freak, or the way light hits a building-and then they move on.

"The thing about how that process works is that it's more about the editing and time for judging the ideas. Most pieces I publish each week have been around for months.

That was when I was doing dailies four days a week." - Paul Madonna

"The Library didn't only contain magical books, the ones which are chained to their shelves and are very dangerous. It also contained perfectly ordinary books, printed on commonplace paper in mundane ink.

Reading them sometimes did the more dangeous trick of making fireworks go off in the privacy of the reader's brain." - Terry Pratchett
