Famous quotes containing the word tones:

    There sighs, lamentations and loud wailings resounded through the starless air, so that at first it made me weep; strange tongues, horrible language, words of pain, tones of anger, voices loud and hoarse, and with these the sound of hands, made a tumult which is whirling through that air forever dark, as sand eddies in a whirlwind.

    ‘Tis not that thy mien is stately,
    ‘Tis not that thy tones are soft;
