Famous quotes containing the words songs and/or distant:

    People fall out of windows, trees tumble down,
    Summer is changed to winter, the young grow old
    The air is full of children, statues, roofs
    And snow. The theatre is spinning round,
    Colliding with deaf-mute churches and optical trains.
    The most massive sopranos are singing songs of scales.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Adventure is making the distant approach nearer
    but romance is having what is where it is which is not
    where you are stay where it is.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
