Famous quotes containing the word tune:

    When Satan makes impure verses, Allah sends a divine tune to cleanse them.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    But O, sick children of the world,
    Of all the many changing things
    In dreary dancing past us whirled,
    To the cracked tune that Chronos sings,
    Words alone are certain good.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Refuse them!
    If we too miss out, don’t create our lives,
    invent or deeds, do them, dance
    a tune with our own feet,
    we shall thirst in Hades,
    in the blood of our children.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
