Famous quotes containing the word repetition:

    The echo is, to some extent, an original sound, and therein is the magic and charm of it. It is not merely a repetition of what was worth repeating in the bell, but partly the voice of the wood; the same trivial words and notes sung by a wood-nymph.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Change is upsetting. Repetition is tedious. Three cheers for variation!
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Between repetition and forgetting, it is a marvel that a new thought ever struggles into existence.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
