Individual societies begin in harmonious adaptation to the environment and, like individuals, quickly get trapped into nonadaptive, artificial, repetitive sequences.When the individual's behavior and consciousness get hooked to a routine sequence of external actions, he is a dead robot, and it is time for him to die and be reborn. Time to "drop out," "turn on," and "tune in." This period of robotization is called the Kali Yuga, the Age of Strife and Empire...
There's many a good tune played on an old fiddle.
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.
The angels all were singing out of tune, And hoarse with having little else to do, Excepting to wind up the sun and moon, Or curb a runaway young star or two.Rochdale
And what is so rare as a day in June? Then, if ever, come perfect days; Then Heaven tries the earth if it be in tune, And over it softly her warm ear lays: Whether we look, or whether we listen, We hear life murmur, or see it glisten; Every clod feels a stir of might, An instinct within it that reaches and towers, And, grasping blindly above it for light, Climbs to a soul in grass and flowers.james russell lowell
All our communities have to make the effort to reach out to each other rather than waiting passively for gestures that may never be made. We need to write our stories and sing our songs together not necessarily in unison or in tune but in a way that makes space for all of us.ratu joni madraiwiwi
Much of the music is a Merzbild , put together from whatever came to hand. I mean, for example...the Alberti-bass horn solo accompanying the Messenger. I also mean the fusion of such widely divergent types of music as the Folies Bergeres tune at No. 40 ('The girls enter, kicking') and the Wagnerian 7th-chords at Nos. 58 and 74."igor stravinsky
I don't like to be my own audience, I find that being my own audience, being in the audience, makes me self-conscious, basically. So I tune in sometimes, with the sound off, to check it out and I back up to it. In the future I will look at it when some time has passed.madeline kahn
Bubble, bubble, flows the streamLike an old tune through a dream.maurice thompson
Strange that a harp of thousand stringsShould keep in tune so long!Isaac Watts
So long, Frank Lloyd Wright.I can't believe your song is gone so soon.I barely learned the tuneFrank Lloyd Wright
Sentimentally I am disposed to harmony; but organically I am incapable of a tune.Charles Lamb
Every time a man is begotten and born, the clock of human life is wound up anew to repeat once more its same old tune that has already been played innumerable times, movement by movement and measure by measure, with insignificant variations.Arthur Schopenhauer
All the lessons learned, unlearned; The young, who learned to read, now blind Their eyes with an archaic film; The peasant relapses to a stumbling tune Following the donkey`s bray; These only remember to forget. But somewhere some word presses On the high door of a skull and in some corner Of an irrefrangible eye Some old man memory jumps to a child Spark from the days of energy. And the child hoards it like a bitter toy.stephen spender
Let the air strike our tune, whilst we show reverence to yond peeping moon.thomas middleton
It is the lark that sings so out of tune, Straining harsh discords and unpleasing sharps.william shakespeare
His labor is a chant, His idleness a tune; Oh, for a bee's experience Of clovers and of noon!
Art thou a magistrate? then be severe: If studious, copy fair what tune hath blurr'd, Redeem truth from his jaws: if soldier, Chase brave employments with a naked sword Throughout the world. Fool not, for all may have If they dare try, a glorious life, or grave.
It’s the music in our conscience, the dance in our spirit, which wants to make all Puritan litanies, all moral sermons, and petty bourgeois respectability sound out of tune.
[to "American tune" by Paul Simon?] This pretty tune was written by Hans Leo Hassler In 1599. I wrote some words and changed about three notes. Now ASCAP says it's mine.
And we, with Nature's heart in tune, Concerted harmonies.william motherwell
He played tune after forbidden tune, and the professional musicians put professional expressions of scorn upon their faces; but beneath the table several feet were tapping in slow time with the music.
All week Senate will be on the Stimulus/Porkulus Bill. tune in C SPANchuck grassley
Old tune, in whose banks we deposit our notes, Is a miser who always wants guineas for groats; He keeps all his customers still in arrears By lending them minutes and charging them years.
