Famous quotes containing the word sound:

    But those rare souls whose spirit gets magically into the hearts of men, leave behind them something more real and warmly personal than bodily presence, an ineffable and eternal thing. It is everlasting life touching us as something more than a vague, recondite concept. The sound of a great name dies like an echo; the splendor of fame fades into nothing; but the grace of a fine spirit pervades the places through which it has passed, like the haunting loveliness of mignonette.
    James Thurber (1894–1961)

    Comrades, leave me here a little, while as yet ‘tis early morn:
    Leave me here, and when you want me, sound upon the bugle-horn.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)

    The spotted hawk swoops by and accuses me, he complains of my gab and my loitering.

    I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable,
    I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
