Magazines, periodicals, glossies or serials are publications that are printed with ink on paper, generally published on a regular schedule and contain a variety of content. They are generally financed by advertising, by a purchase price, by pre-paid magazine subscriptions, or all three. At its root the word magazine refers to a collection or storage location. In the case of written publication it is a collection of written articles.
Famous quotes containing the word magazine:
“If to be masculine is to be smart, do let [woman] try; or are you afraid, if she has the chance, that a few of your laurels will droop?”
—M.C. R., U.S. womens magazine contributor. The Revolution (March 19, 1868)
“And let Reform her columns roll.
With thunder peal, and lightening flash.
Well preach deliverance to the soul.
Mid proud Oppressions waning crash.”
—Ignis, U.S. womens magazine contributor. The Genius of Liberty, pp. 9-10 (November 1853)
“It is useless to check the vain dunce who has caught the mania of scribbling, whether prose or poetry, canzonets or criticisms,let such a one go on till the disease exhausts itself. Opposition like water, thrown on burning oil, but increases the evil, because a person of weak judgment will seldom listen to reason, but become obstinate under reproof.”
—Sarah Josepha Buell Hale 17881879, U.S. novelist, poet and womens magazine editor. American Ladies Magazine, pp. 36-40 (December 1828)
