Write the other way

This notebook made me think of the quote from William Carlos Williams:

“If they give you lined paper, write the other way.”

One thought on “Write the other way

  1. Is the William Carlos Williams attribution correct? I thought this was due to the Spanish poet Juan Ramón Jiménez: “Si os dan papel pautado, escribid por el otro lado” (Which is actually slightly different from your quote, it means “If you’re given ruled paper, write on the back”, the back, presumably, being non-ruled?)

    And OT, nice interview on SCC!
