Notes

Famous quotes containing the word notes:

    There are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before; like the larks in this country, that have been singing the same five notes over for thousands of years.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    A little black thing among the snow
    Crying “’weep, ‘weep,” in notes of woe!
    “Where are thy father & mother? say?”
    “They are both gone up to the church to pray.
    William Blake (1757–1827)

    Of all the horrid, hideous notes of woe,
    Sadder than owl-songs or the midnight blast,
    Is that portentous phrase, “I told you so,”
    Uttered by friends, those prophets of the past.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)
