Famous quotes containing the word harmony:
“Nothing could be so beautiful, so smart, so well drilled as the two armies. Trumpets, fifes, oboes, drums, cannons formed a harmony such as was never heard in hell.... Candide, trembling like a philosopher, hid himself as best he could during this heroic butchery.”
—Voltaire [François Marie Arouet] (16941778)
