Famous quotes containing the words concert, scores and/or full:

    Science is unflinchingly deterministic, and it has begun to force its determinism into morals. On some shining tomorrow a psychoanalyst may be put into the box to prove that perjury is simply a compulsion neurosis, like beating time with the foot at a concert or counting the lampposts along the highway.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    So, Willy, let you and me be wipers
    Of scores out with all men—especially pipers;
    And, whether they pipe us free, from rats or from mice,
    If we’ve promised them aught, let us keep our promise.
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    Poetry is the language in which man explores his own amazement ... says heaven and earth in one word ... speaks of himself and his predicament as though for the first time. It has the virtue of being able to say twice as much as prose in half the time, and the drawback, if you do not give it your full attention, of seeming to say half as much in twice the time.
    Christopher Fry (b. 1907)
