Famous quotes containing the words loss and/or hearing:

    Somebody who should have been born
    is gone.

    Yes, woman, such logic will lead
    to loss without death. Or say what you meant,
    you coward . . . this baby that I bleed.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Orpheus with his Lute made Trees,
    And the Mountaine tops that freeze,
    Bow themselves when he did sing.
    To his Musicke, Plants and Flowers
    Ever spring; as Sunne and Showres,
    There had been a lasting Spring.
    Every thing that heard him play,
    Even the Billowes of the Sea,
    Hung their heads, and then lay by.
    In sweet Musicke is such Art,
    Killing care, and griefe of heart,
    Fall asleepe, or hearing dye.
    John Fletcher (1579–1625)
