Echo Quotations

Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.
Carl Sandburg

The sound of a kiss is not so loud as that of a cannon, but its echo lasts a great deal longer.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Jane Goodall

Most Christian 'believers' tend to echo the cultural prejudices and worldviews of the dominant group in their country, with only a minority revealing any real transformation of attitudes or consciousness.

Richard Rohr
