Singer

Famous quotes containing the word singer:

    In the race for wealth, a neighbor tries to outdo his neighbor, but this strife is good for men. For the potter envies potter, and the carpenter the carpenter, and the beggar rivals the beggar, and the singer the singer.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    Now the nightingale, the pretty nightingale,
    The sweetest singer in all the forest’s choir,
    Entreats thee, sweet Peggy, to hear thy true Love’s tale:
    Lo! yonder she sitteth, her breast against a briar.
    Thomas Dekker (1572?–1632?)

    The singer stopped playing and went to bed
    While the Weary Blues echoed through his head.
    He slept like a rock or a man that’s dead.
    Langston Hughes (1902–1967)
