Alternate Mix

Famous quotes containing the words alternate and/or mix:

    Boswell, when he speaks of his Life of Johnson, calls it my magnum opus, but it may more properly be called his opera, for it is truly a composition founded on a true story, in which there is a hero with a number of subordinate characters, and an alternate succession of recitative and airs of various tone and effect, all however in delightful animation.
    James Boswell (1740–1795)

    One could laugh at the world better if it didn’t mix tender kindliness with its brutality.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
