Dobby hears things, sir, he is a house-elf, he goes all over the castle as he lights the fires and mops the floors
When one hears of progress one should ask for whom. 795Robin Skelton
A statesman cannot create anything himself. He must wait and listen until he hears the steps of God sounding through events; then leap up and grasp the hem of his garment.otto von bismarck
I praise Thee while my days go on; I love Thee while my days go on: Through dark and dearth, through fire and frost, With emptied arms and treasure lost, I thank Thee while my days go on. And having in thy life-depth thrown Being and suffering (which are one), As a child drops his pebble small Down some deep well, and hears it fall Smiling so I. THY DAYS GO ON.
Who can attain to anything great if he does not feel in himself the force and will to inflict great pain? The ability to suffer is a small matter: in that line, weak women and even slaves often attain masterliness. But not to perish from internal distress and doubt when one inflicts great suffering and hears the cry of it that is great, that belongs to greatness.friedrich nietzsche
Speak to Him thou for He hears, and spirit with spirit can meet Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.
He hears On all sides, from innumerable tongues A dismal universal hiss, the sound Of public scorn.john milton
I can hear you! I can hear you, the rest of the world hears you. And the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!
He who asks fortune-tellers the future unwittingly forfeits an inner intimation of coming events that is a thousand times more exact than anything they may say.

On a lone barren isle, where the wild roaring billowsAssail the stern rock, and the loud tempests rave,The hero lies still, while the dew-drooping willows,Like fond weeping mourners, lean over his grave.The lightnings may flash and the loud thunders rattle;He heeds not, he hears not, he's free from all pain;He sleeps his last sleep, he has fought his last battle;No sound can awake him to glory again!lyman heath
A jest's prosperity lies in the ear Of him that hears it, never in the tongue Of him that makes it.william shakespeare
With ravished ears The monarch hears; Assumes the god, Affects the nod, And seems to shake the spheres.john dryden
The moment one hears the word “Tantrism”, various wild and lurid associations spring forth in the Western mind which add up to a pastiche of psycho spiritual science fiction and sexual acrobatics that would put to shame the most imaginative of our contemporary pronographers.
The Serbs do not want to renounce Kosovo and they remember how, by the late 13th century, the plain was conquered by Prince Štefan Nemanja and that there are no records of an Albanian presence [there]. [The Albanians], on the other hand, declare themselves to be descendants of the Illyrians, thus indigenous for thousands of years, when the Serbs were God knows where. All places in Kosovo have Slavic names. Of the Albanians, who at that period had already converted to Islam , one hears of them only after the Turkish occupation, when they became its masters.
