I heard that chivalry was dead, but I think it's just got a bad flue.
When I heard Aretha, I could feel her emotional delivery so clearly. It came from down deep within. That's what I wanted to do.

The tensions between authority and the people need to be heard, especially when they are suffering and they can't eat.
I heard endless conversations between my parents when I was going to sleep about how we would survive, how we would continue. All of them were about trying to make me better.
Back, you know, a few generations ago, people didn't have a way to share information and express their opinions efficiently to a lot of people. But now they do. Right now, with social networks and other tools on the Internet, all of these 500 million people have a way to say what they're thinking and have their voice be heard.
I have always heard, Sancho, that doing good to base fellows is like throwing water into the sea.
Miguel de Cervantes
I am in earnest - I will not equivocate - I will not excuse - I will not retreat a single inch - and I will be heard!
William Lloyd Garrison
I didn't understand that I could sing until I was like 11 or 12. My mom heard me singing around the house and she said, What are you doing? You really can sing! So then I started going to school and singing to the girls.
I'm someone who believes the truth needs to be heard. And if I'm empowered with the truth, I'm not going to shut up.
That money talks, I'll not deny, I heard it once: It said, 'Goodbye'.
You're not famous until my mother has heard of you.
The guy keeps making speeches about redistribution and maybe we ought to do something to businesses that don't invest, their holding too much money. We haven't heard that kind of talk except from pure socialists. Everybody's afraid of the government and there's no need soft peddling it, it's the truth. It is the truth.
I liked Camille Paglia. I liked her even better when I heard her talk.
I noticed there were so many people, especially women, who would come up to me having recognized me from TV and say, 'I heard you were a math person, why math? Oh my gosh, I could never do math!' I could just see their self-esteem crumbling; I thought that was silly, so I wanted to make math more friendly and accessible.
Now God has never shouted out to me. I've never heard God speak audibly. He doesn't have to.
I think Shakespeare is like a dialect. If I heard a broad Scots accent, I'd probably struggle at first but then I'd start to look for words I recognise and I'd get the gist. I think Shakespeare is like that.
Because too many times in life there's just one person that I met, just one thing that I heard, one movie that I saw, one song that was sung, that changed my life. So I'm always trying to stay awake to be in the moment, and capture the moments when they come, because they come and go all the time.

Ever notice that the whisper of temptation can be heard farther than the loudest call to duty.
When I took office, only high energy physicists had ever heard of what is called the Worldwide Web... Now even my cat has its own page.
William J. Clinton
It's just that when you heard hip-hop, no matter where you were, it was a culture that kind of made you want to try to be part of it. Whether you thought you were an artist, whether you thought you could be a DJ, whether you thought you could breakdance, or whether you thought you could rap. It was the kind of culture that had a lot of open doors.
I started writing rhymes first and then put it to the music. I figured out I could lock it to the beat better if I heard the music first. I like to get a lot of tracks, put the track up and let the music talk to me about what it's about.
I've always liked Saturn. But I also have some sympathy for Pluto because I heard it's been downgraded from a planet, and I think it should remain a planet. Once you've given something planetary status it's kind of mean to take it away.

I get heartfelt thanks from all kinds of people.
