Famous quotes containing the word hear:

    And what is an authentic madman? It is a man who preferred to become mad, in the socially accepted sense of the word, rather than forfeit a certain superior idea of human honor. So society has strangled in its asylums all those it wanted to get rid of or protect itself from, because they refused to become its accomplices in certain great nastinesses. For a madman is also a man whom society did not want to hear and whom it wanted to prevent from uttering certain intolerable truths.
    Antonin Artaud (1896–1948)

    But no matter how they make you feel, you should always watch elders carefully. They were you and you will be them. You carry the seeds of your old age in you at this very moment, and they hear the echoes of their childhood each time they see you.
    Kent Nerburn (20th century)

    To read a poem is to hear it with our eyes; to hear it is to see it with our ears.
    Octavio Paz (b. 1914)
