Voice

Famous quotes containing the word voice:

    Mind not the old man beseeching the young man;
    Let not the child’s voice be heard, nor the mother’s entreaties;
    Make even the trestles to shake the dead, where they lie awaiting
    the hearses,
    So strong you thump, O terrible drums—so loud you bugles blow.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    ... his voice and hands,
    Within whose warm spring rain of loving care
    Each dwells some twenty seconds. Now, dear child,
    What’s wrong, the deep American voice demands,
    And, scarcely pausing, goes into a prayer
    Directing God about this eye, that knee.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Haply a woman’s voice may do some good
    When articles too nicely urged be stood on.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
