Famous quotes containing the word singer:

    Now the nightingale, the pretty nightingale,
    The sweetest singer in all the forest’s choir,
    Entreats thee, sweet Peggy, to hear thy true Love’s tale:
    Lo! yonder she sitteth, her breast against a briar.
    Thomas Dekker (1572?–1632?)

    Children don’t read to find their identity, to free themselves from guilt, to quench the thirst for rebellion or to get rid of alienation. They have no use for psychology.... They still believe in God, the family, angels, devils, witches, goblins, logic, clarity, punctuation, and other such obsolete stuff.... When a book is boring, they yawn openly. They don’t expect their writer to redeem humanity, but leave to adults such childish illusions.
    —Isaac Bashevis Singer (20th century)

    In the race for wealth, a neighbor tries to outdo his neighbor, but this strife is good for men. For the potter envies potter, and the carpenter the carpenter, and the beggar rivals the beggar, and the singer the singer.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)
