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.
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
Writing a book of poetry is like dropping a rose petal down the Grand Canyon and waiting for the echo.
My thoughts will echo your name, Until I see you again.Taylor Swift
Hark, how chimes the passing bell! There's no music to a knell; All the other sounds we hear, Flatter, and but cheat our ear. This doth put us still in mind That our flesh must be resigned, And, a general silence made, The world be muffled in a shade. [Orpheus' lute, as poets tell, Was but moral of this bell, And the captive soul was she, Which they called Eurydice, Rescued by our holy groan, A loud echo to this tone.]james shirley
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
Underneath all the arches of Scripture history, throughout the whole grand temple of the Scriptures, these two voices ever echo, man is ruined, man is redeemed.cyrus david foss
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
Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion that each include the other, each is enriched by the other. Love is an echo in the feelings of a unity subsisting between two persons which is founded both on likeness and on complementary differences. Without the likeness there would be no attraction; without the challenge of the complementary differences there could not be the closer interweaving and the inextinguishable mutual interest which is the characteristic of all deeper relationships.felix adler
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
Only straight discovering in the nearest stone or tree, sound or thought, the shelter of His often desecrated goodness, the treasury of His waiting form man's heart to affiliate with His will this is the rapture of faith. It is an echo to a pleading voice, a reply to the inconceivable in all beauty.abraham joshua heschel
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
For ages the world has been waiting and watching; millions, with broken hearts, have hovered around the yawning abyss; but no echo has come back from the engulfing gloom silence, oblivion, covers all. If indeed they survive; if they went away whole and victorious, they give us no signals. We wait for years, but no messages come from the far-away shore to which they have gone.
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
I heard * * * * * * the great echo flap And buffet round the hills from bluff to bluff.
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
Earth is but the frozen echo of the silent voice of God.
Auf hohlen Köpfen ist gut trommeln. Und je hohler ein Kopf, desto voller das echo.
Even echo speaks not on these radiant moors.
