To mark the paper was a decisive act

The pen was an archaic instrument, seldom used even for signatures, and he had procured one, furtively and with some difficulty simply because of a feeling that the beautiful creamy paper deserved to be written on with a real nib instead of being scratched with an ink-pencil. ... He dipped the pen into the ink and then faltered for a second. ... To mark the paper was a decisive act.

George Orwell, 1984
