Famous quotes containing the words living, voices and/or sing:

    Milton! thou should’st be living at this hour:
    England hath need of thee:

    Amidst the downward tendency and proneness of things, when every voice is raised for a new road or another statute or a subscription of stock; for an improvement in dress, or in dentistry; for a new house or a larger business; for a political party, or the division of an estate;Mwill you not tolerate one or two solitary voices in the land, speaking for thoughts and principles not marketable or perishable?
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Troll the bowl, the jolly nut-brown bowl,
    And here, kind mate, to thee!
    Let’s sing a dirge for Saint Hugh’s soul,
    And down it merrily.
    Thomas Dekker (1572?–1632?)
