Famous quotes containing the word listening:

    Proportion ... You can’t help thinking about it in these London streets, where it doesn’t exist.... It’s like listening to a symphony of cats to walk along them. Senseless discords and a horrible disorder all the way.... A concert of Brobdingnagian cats. Order has been turned into a disgusting chaos. We need no barbarians from outside; they’re on the premises, all the time.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    Sentences and paragraphs. Sentences are not emotional but paragraphs are. I can say that as often as I like and it always remains as it is, something that is. I said I found this out first in listening to Basket my dog drinking. And anybody listening to any dog’s drinking will see what I mean.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)

    Lift every voice and sing till earth and heaven ring,
    ring with the harmonies of liberty.
    Let our rejoicing rise high as the listening skies;
    Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
    James Weldon Johnson (1871–1938)
