Famous quotes containing the words syllable and/or stressed:

    It was a purely wild and primitive American sound, as much as the barking of a chickaree, and I could not understand a syllable of it.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the word begin to move around. Stressed accents begin to invert. The word abandons its meaning like an overload which is too heavy and prevents dreaming. Then words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young. And the words wander away, looking in the nooks and crannies of vocabulary for new company, bad company.
    Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962)
