Famous quotes containing the words opera house, house, cairo and/or opera:

    The opera house sparkled with tiers
    And tiers of eyes, like mine enlarged by belladonna,
    James Merrill (b. 1926)

    Everything goes, everything comes back; eternally rolls the wheel of being. Everything dies, everything blossoms again; eternally runs the year of being. Everything breaks, everything is joined anew; eternally the same house of being is built. Everything parts, everything greets every other thing again; eternally the ring of being remains faithful to itself. In every Now, being begins; round every Here rolls the sphere There. The center is everywhere. Bent is the path of eternity.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The Cairo conference ... is about a complicated web of education and employment, consumption and poverty, development and health care. It is also about whether governments will follow where women have so clearly led them, toward safe, simple and reliable choices in family planning. While Cairo crackles with conflict, in the homes of the world the orthodoxies have been duly heard, and roundly ignored.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    The opera house sparkled with tiers
    And tiers of eyes, like mine enlarged by belladonna,
    James Merrill (b. 1926)
