Famous quotes containing the word songs:

    Music is so much a part of their daily lives that if an Indian visits another reservation one of the first questions asked on his return is: “What new songs did you learn?”
    —Federal Writers’ Project Of The Wor, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    O women, kneeling by your altar-rails long hence,
    When songs I wove for my beloved hide the prayer,
    And smoke from this dead heart drifts through the violet air
    And covers away the smoke of myrrh and frankincense;
    Bend down and pray for all that sin I wove in song....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Let me make the superstitions of a nation and I care not who makes its laws or its songs either.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
