Listening

Famous quotes containing the word listening:

    What means the fact—which is so common, so universal—that some soul that has lost all hope for itself can inspire in another listening soul an infinite confidence in it, even while it is expressing its despair?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I’ve come close to matching the feeling of that night in 1944 in music, when I first heard Diz and Bird, but I’ve never got there.... I’m always looking for it, listening and feeling for it, though, trying to always feel it in and through the music I play every day.
    Miles Davis (1926–1991)

    Time is a horse that runs in the heart, a horse
    Without a rider on a road at night.
    The mind sits listening and hears it pass.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
