Voice

Famous quotes containing the word voice:

    ‘Stay—stay with us!—rest—thou art
    weary and worn!’—
    And fain was their war-broken soldier to stay;—
    But sorrow return’d with the dawning of morn,
    And the voice in my dreaming ear melted away.
    Thomas Campbell (1774–1844)

    When the Church of Jesus
    Shuts its outer door,
    Lest the roar of traffic
    Drown the voice of prayer:
    May our prayers, Lord, make us
    Ten times more aware
    That the world we banish
    Is our Christian care.
    Frederick Pratt Green (b. 1903)

    Methought I heard a voice cry “Sleep no more!
    Macbeth does murder sleep,” the innocent sleep,
    Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleave of care,
    The death of each day’s life, sore labor’s bath,
    Balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course,
    Chief nourisher in life’s feast.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
