Famous quotes containing the word tune:

    The barge she sat in, like a burnished throne
    Burned on the water. The poop was beaten gold;
    Purple the sails, and so perfumed that
    The winds were love-sick with them. The oars were silver,
    Which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made
    The water which they beat to follow faster,
    As amorous of their strokes.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    But O, sick children of the world,
    Of all the many changing things
    In dreary dancing past us whirled,
    To the cracked tune that Chronos sings,
    Words alone are certain good.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Oh, how cruelly sweet are the echoes that start
    When Memory plays an old tune on the heart!
    Eliza Cook (1818–1889)
