Famous quotes containing the words parry and/or sound:

    Every man alone is sincere. At the entrance of a second person, hypocrisy begins. We parry and fend the approach of our fellow-man by compliments, by gossip, by amusements, by affairs. We cover up our thought from him under a hundred folds.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    There is a sound of music echoing
    Through the open door
    And in the field there is
    Another sound tinkling in the cotton:
    Chains of bondmen dragging on the ground.
    Arna Bontemps (1902–1973)
