Songs

Famous quotes containing the word songs:

    Blues are the songs of despair, but gospel songs are the songs of hope.
    Mahalia Jackson (1911–1972)

    And songs climb out of the flames of the near campfires,
    Pale, pastel things exquisite in their frailness
    With a note or two to indicate it isn’t lost,
    On them at least. The songs decorate our notion of the world
    And mark its limits, like a frieze of soap-bubbles.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    We can never see Christianity from the catechism:Mfrom the pastures, from a boat in the pond, from amidst the songs of wood- birds we possibly may.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
