Famous quotes containing the word music:

    Taylor, the Shakespeare of divines.
    His words are music in my ear,
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
    There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
    There is society where none intrudes
    By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
    I love not man the less, but nature more,
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    The music stopp’d, and I stood still,
    And found myself outside the Hill,
    Left alone against my will,
    To go now limping as before,
    And never hear of that country more!”
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)
