American Musician

Famous quotes containing the words musician and/or american:

    I think
    The nightingale, if she should sing by day
    When every goose is cackling, would be thought
    No better a musician than the wren.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Do not be discouraged, if in a thousand instances you find your kindness rejected and wronged, your good evil-spoken of, and the hand you extend for the relief of others, cast insultingly away; the benevolence which cannot outlive these trials of its purity and strength, is not like the self-sacrifice of him, who went about doing good.
    C., U.S. women’s magazine contributor. American Ladies Magazine, pp. 331-4 (July 1828)
