Famous quotes containing the word songs:

    When I am dead, my dearest, Sing no sad songs for me;
    Plant thou no roses at my head, Nor shady cypress tree:
    Be the green grass above me With showers and dewdrops wet;
    And if thou wilt, remember, And if thou wilt, forget.
    Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830–1894)

    The hills are alive with the sound of music, with songs they have sung for a thousand years.
    Oscar Hammerstein II (1895–1960)

    O past! O happy life! O songs of joy!
    In the air, in the woods, over fields,
    Loved! loved! loved! loved! loved!
    But my mate no more, no more with me!
    We two together no more.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
