Like a bird on the wire, like a drunk in a midnight choir I have tried in my way to be free .
That scrawny cry It was A chorister whose c preceded the choir. It was part of the colossal sun, Surrounded by its choral rings, Still far away. It was like A new knowledge of reality.wallace stevens
Some truths there are so near and obvious to the mind that a man need only open his eyes to see them. Such I take this important one to be, viz. that all the choir of heaven and furniture of the earth, in a word all those bodies which compose the mighty frame of the world, have not any subsistence without a mind that their being is to be perceived or known.George Berkeley
Since I am coming to that holy room
Where, with Thy choir of saints forevermore,
I shall be made Thy Music; as I come
I tune the instrument here at the door,
And what I must do then, think here before.
Leave not thy nest, thy dam and sire, Fly back and sing amidst this choir.anne bradstreet
A choir of angels glorified the hour, the vault of heaven was dissolved in fire. "Father, why hast Thou forsaken me? Mother, I beg you, do not weep for me..."anna akhmatova
And storied windows richly dight, Casting a dim religious light. There let the pealing organ blow, To the full-voiced choir below, In service high, and anthems clear As may, with sweetness, through mine ear Dissolve me into ecstasies, And bring all heaven before mine eyes.john milton
I may be preaching to the choir, but the choir needs a good song.Michael Moore

Some day this old Broadway shall climb to the skies, As a ribbon of cloud on a soul-wind shall rise, And we shall be lifted, rejoicing by night, Till we join with the planets who choir their delight. The signs in the streets and the signs in the skies Shall make a new Zodiac, guiding the wise, And Broadway make one with that marvelous stair That is climbed by the rainbow-clad spirits of prayer.
When the rest of the congregation rose at the entrance of the choir he kept his seat. He argued that rising to one's feet at such a time tended to make the choir-boys conceited.
So then he said that he used to be a member of the choir himself, so who was he to cast the first rock at a girl like I.Anita Loos
We will reflect the country we aspire to govern, and the sound of modern Britain is a complex harmony, not a male voice choir.david cameron
It was great mixing dance beats with the choir. The reaction of the classically trained choir when asked to sing on top of dance beats was great.jesper kyd
Each man in his life honors, and imitates as well as he can, that god to whose choir he belonged, while he is uncorrupted in his first incarnation here; and in the fashion he has thus learned, he bears himself to his beloved as well as to the rest.

Our cage We make a choir, as doth the prison'd bird And sing our bondage freely.
Dodgson was overcome by the beauty of Cologne Cathedral. I found him leaning against the rails of the choir and sobbing like a child. When the verger came to show us over the chapels behind the choir, he got out of the way, he said that he could not bear the harsh voice of the man in the presence of so much beauty.henry parry liddon
They've [Shillong Chamber choir] made us all very proud.
It's too bad gays aren't as sick as they're made out to be. It would sure as hell be more fun at these Show choir competitions!
[choir of] Men: There is no beast, no rush of fire, like woman so untamed. She calmly goes her way where even panthers would be shamed. [choir of] Women: And yet you are fool enough, it seems, to dare to war with me, when for your faithful ally you might win me easily. (tr. Lindsay 1925, Perseus )
