The whole wide world is a cathedral; I stand inside, the air is calm, And from afar at times there reaches My ear the echo of a psalm.
Writing a book of poetry is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo.
What is Freedom? ye can tell That which slavery is, too well For its very name has grown To an echo of your own.Percy Bysshe Shelley
Starting in a hollowed log of wood — some thousand miles up a river, with an infinitesimal prospect of returning! I ask myself 'Why?' and the only echo is 'damned fool!... the Devil drives'.sir richard francis burton
Reputation being essentially contemporaneous, is always at the mercy of the Envious and the Ignorant. But Fame, whose very birth is posthumous, and which is only known to exist by the echo of its footsteps through congenial minds, can neither be increased nor diminished by any degree of wilfulness.
When we read, we are not looking for new ideas, but to see our own thoughts given the seal of confirmation on the printed page. The words that strike us are those that awake an echo in a zone we have already made our own—the place where we live—and the vibration enables us to find fresh starting points within ourselves.cesare pavese
When time itself shall be no more, And all things in confusion hurl'd, Music shall then exert it's power, And sound survive the ruins of the world: Then saints and angels shall agree In one eternal jubilee: All Heaven shall echo with their hymns divine, And God himself with pleasure see The whole creation in a chorus join.joseph addison
Let echo, too, perform her part, Prolonging every note with art; And in a low expiring strain, Play all the concert o'er again.joseph addison
The secondary Imagination I consider as an echo of the former, co-existing with the conscious will, yet still as identical with the primary in the kind of its agency, and differing only in degree, and in the mode of its operation. It dissolves, diffuses, dissipates, in order to recreate: or where this process is rendered impossible, yet still at all events it struggles to idealize and to unify. It is essentially vital, even as all objects (as objects) are essentially fixed and dead.Samuel Taylor Coleridge
All saints revile her, and all sober men Ruled by the God Apollo's golden mean In scorn of which we sailed to find her In distant regions likeliest to hold her Whom we desired above all things to know, Sister of the mirage and echo.robert graves
"The shower is my time to open up my operatic chops, because of the enormous echo. You sound five times as big in the shower, so I break into some "Nessun Dorma" [from Puccini 's Turandot] or Pearl Jam. You've got to go big when you're in the shower. There's no half-singing in the shower, you're either a rock star or an opera diva."josh groban
There is no word or action but has its echo in Eternity. Thought is an Idea in transit, which when once released, never can be lured back, nor the spoken word recalled. Nor ever can the overt act be erased All that thou thinkest, sayest, or doest bears perpetual record of itself, enduring for Eternity.pythagoras

Gather a shell from the strewn beach And listen at its lips: they sigh The same desire and mystery, The echo of the whole sea's speech.Dante Gabriel Rossetti
My thoughts will echo your name, Until I see you again.Taylor Swift
Hark! to the hurried question of Despair "Where is my child?" An echo answers "Where?"lord byron
I came to the place of my birth and cried: "The friends of my youth, where are they?" and an echo answered, "Where are they?"
The babbling echo mocks the hounds, Replying shrilly to the well-tun'd horns, As if a double hunt were heard at once.william shakespeare
Natenczas Wojski chwyci? na ta?mie przypi?ty Swój róg bawoli, d?ugi, c?tkowany, kr?ty Jak w?? boa, obur?cz do ust go przycisn??, Wzd?? policzki jak bani?, w oczach krwi? zab?ysn??, Zasun?? wpó? powieki, wci?gn?? w g??b pó? brzucha I do p?uc wys?a? z niego ca?y zapas ducha... (...) Tu przerwa?, lecz róg trzyma?; wszystkim si? zdawa?o, ?e Wojski wci?? gra jeszcze, a to echo gra?o.
Our homeward step was just as light/As the tap-dancing feet of Astaire/And, like an echo far away,/A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
Tell me now in what hidden way isLady Flora the lovely Roman?Where's Hipparchia, and where is Thais,Neither of them the fairer woman?Where is echo, beheld of no man,Only heard on river and mere—She whose beauty was more than human?—But where are the snows of yester-year?Dante Gabriel Rossetti
