Quote of the Day
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all.
Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.
Be like the bird who, pausing in her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.
Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.
I'm not a singer who plays a bit of drums. I'm a drummer that sings a bit.
The evening sings in a voice of amber, the dawn is surely coming.
Just as the bird sings or the butterfly soars, because it is his natural characteristic, so the artist works.
Electricity, the peril the wind sings to in the wires on a gray day.
When you work you are a flute through whose heart the whispering of the hours turns to music. Which of you would be a reed, dumb and silent, when all else sings together in unison?
A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Marriage should be a duet - when one sings, the other claps.
The compelled mother loves her child as the caged bird sings. The song does not justify the cage nor the love the enforcement.
Life has loveliness to sell, all beautiful and splendid things, blue waves whitened on a cliff, soaring fire that sways and sings, and children's faces looking up, holding wonder like a cup.
If you like an instrument that sings, play the saxophone. At its best it's like the human voice.
One morning every spring, for exactly two minutes, Israel comes to a stop. Pedestrians stand in place, drivers pull over to the side of the road, and nobody speaks, sings, eats, or drinks as the nation pays respect to the victims of the Nazi genocide. From the Mediterranean to the Dead Sea, the only sounds one hears are sirens.
What a mother sings to the cradle goes all the way down to the coffin.
Henry Ward Beecher
The muse is not an angelic voice that sits on your shoulder and sings sweetly. The muse is the most annoying whine. The muse isn't hard to find, just hard to like - she follows you everywhere, tapping you on the shoulder, demanding that you stop doing whatever else you might be doing and pay attention to her.
There are two kinds of climbers, those who climb because their heart sings when they're in the mountains, and all the rest.
Happy is the person who not only sings, but feels God's eye is on the sparrow, and knows He watches over me. To be simply ensconced in God is true joy.
Alfred A. Montapert
That's the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over, lest you should think he never could recapture the first fine careless rapture!
My definition of country music is really pretty simple. It's when someone sings about their life and what they know, from an authentic place.
It's insane that, since the Beatles and Dylan, it's assumed that all musicians should do everything themselves. It's that ridiculous, teenage idea that when Mick Jagger sings, he's telling you something about his own life. It's so arrogant to think that people would want to know about it anyway!
Does not the very word 'creative' mean to build, to initiate, to give out, to act - rather than to be acted upon, to be subjective? Living photography is positive in its approach, it sings a song of life - not death.
I decided at 15 that I didn't want to be one of those artists that gets up and sings love songs they don't mean. I decided that I was going to be me to the fullest extent, that my songs were going to reflect relationships I've had, things I've been through, and even the stuff I'm embarrassed about.
I remember being a bathtub singer. You know, the type that sings and everybody's like, 'Shut up.'
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
