Famous quotes containing the word applied:

    “The worst reporter, even for his age, in New York,” was the affectionate epithet applied to me.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    Writing prejudicial, off-putting reviews is a precise exercise in applied black magic. The reviewer can draw free- floating disagreeable associations to a book by implying that the book is completely unimportant without saying exactly why, and carefully avoiding any clear images that could capture the reader’s full attention.
    William Burroughs (b. 1914)

    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 (b. 1957)
