Famous quotes containing the words singing and/or throat:

    Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
    The day what belongs to the day—at night the party of
    young fellows, robust, friendly,
    Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    There is a place where we are always alone with our own mortality, where we must simply have something greater than ourselves to hold onto—God or history or politics or literature or a belief in the healing power of love, or even righteous anger.... A reason to believe, a way to take the world by the throat and insist that there is more to this life than we have ever imagined.
    Dorothy Allison (b. 1949)
