Famous quotes containing the word sound:

    We can say that the sound is the primary object of the act of hearing, and that the act of hearing itself is the secondary object.
    Franz Clemens Brentano (1838–1917)

    Every now and then, when you’re on stage, you hear the best sound a player can hear. It’s a sound you can’t get in movies or in television. It is the sound of a wonderful, deep silence that means you’ve hit them where they live.
    Shelley Winters (b. 1922)

    An old pond—
    a frog tumbles in—
    the sound of water.
    Matsuo Basho (1644–1694)
