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:
“Nois a term very frequently employed by the fair, when they mean everything else but a negative. Their yes is always yes; but their no is not always no.”
—Anonymous, U.S. womens magazine contributor. M, Weekly Visitor or Ladies Miscellany, p. 203 (April 1803)
“If a man is a good lawyer, a good physician, a good engineer ... he may be a fool in every other capacity. But no deficiency or mistake of judgment is forgiven to a woman ... and should she fail anywhere, if she has any scientific attainment, or artistic faculty, instead of standing her interest as an excuse, it is censured as an aggravation and offence.”
—E.P.P., U.S. womens magazine contributor. The Una, p. 28 ( February 1855)
“Men are universally afraid of a broomstick and a womans tongue; if no other weapons are allowed us, let these be freely used.”
—Anonymous, U.S. womens magazine contributor. The Lily, p. 69 (September 1851)
