To me, there is nothing better than me going into the studio with a live band and hearing those violins and that echo and that sound. I mean I loved it.Bobby Vinton Violins Sayings By Bobby Vinton: To me, there is nothing better than me going into the studio with a live
Failure to use tax money to finance things not liked by the taxpaying public is routinely called 'censorship.' If such terminology were used consistently, virtually all of life would be just one long, unending censorship, as individuals choose whether to buy apples instead of oranges, vacations rather than violins, furniture rather than mutual funds. But of course no such consistency is intended. This strained use of the word 'censorship' appears only selectively, to describe public choices and values at variance with the choices and values of the anointed.Thomas Sowell Violins Sayings By Thomas Sowell: Failure to use tax money to finance things not liked by the taxpaying public is
Violins are the lively, forward, importunate wits, that distinguish themselves by the flourishes of imagination, sharpness of repartee, glances of satire, and bear away the upper part in every consort.Richard Steele Violins Sayings By Richard Steele: Violins are the lively, forward, importunate wits, that distinguish themselves by the flourishes of imagination,
You have those songs that are very special to you that you don't want to get ruined by production. Something like 'Start Again' shouldn't be touched. It's a classic-sounding song on a piano and violins and harmonies, and I think those songs are perfect as they are.Conrad Sewell Violins Sayings By Conrad Sewell: You have those songs that are very special to you that you don't want to
History was an artist, maintaining the idea but changing the details, like a composer keeping the same theme but dulling it to a minor or lifting by an octave, now crooning it with violins, now blaring it on trumpets.George R. Stewart Violins Sayings By George R. Stewart: History was an artist, maintaining the idea but changing the details, like a composer keeping
Anyways, the guys try to be cool. They just lie there and groove, but after a while they start hearing - you won't believe this - they hear chamber music. They hear violins and cellos. They hear this terrific mama-san soprano. Then after a while they hear gook opera and and a glee club and the Haiphong Boys Choir and a barbershop quartet and and all kinds of wierd chanting and Buddha-Buddha stuff. All the whole time, in the background, there's stil that cocktail party going on. All these different voices. Not human voices, though. Because it's the mountains. Follow me? The rock, it's TALKING. And the fog, too, and the grass and the goddamn mongooses. Everything talks. The trees talk politics, the monnkeys talk religion. The whole country. Vietnam. The place talks. It talks. Understand? Nam - it truly TALKS.Tim O'Brien Violins Sayings By Tim O'Brien: Anyways, the guys try to be cool. They just lie there and groove, but after
When a man rides a long time through wild regions he feels the desire for a city. Finally he comes to Isidora, a city where the buildings have spiral staircases encrusted with spiral seashells, where perfect telescopes and violins are made, where the foreigner hesitating between two women always encounters a third, where cockfights degenerate into bloody brawls among the bettors. He was thinking of all these things when he desired a city. Isidora, therefore, is the city of his dreams: with one difference. The dreamed-of city contained him as a young man; he arrives at Isidora in his old age. In the square there is the wall where the old men sit and watch the young go by; he is seated in a row with them. Desires are already memories.Italo Calvino Violins Sayings By Italo Calvino: When a man rides a long time through wild regions he feels the desire for
Every player in every game is subjected to a cold and ceaseless accounting; no ball is thrown and no base is gained without an instant responding judgment - ball or strike, hit or error, yea or nay - and an ensuing statistic. This encompassing neatness permits the baseball fan, aided by experience and memory, to extract from a box score the same joy, the same hallucinatory reality, that prickles the scalp of a musician when he glances at a page of his score of Don Giovanni and actually hears bassos and sopranos, woodwinds and violins.Roger Angell Violins Sayings By Roger Angell: Every player in every game is subjected to a cold and ceaseless accounting; no ball
It was pleasant to wake up in Florence, to open the eyes upon a bright bare room, with a floor of red tiles which look clean though they are not; with a painted ceiling whereon pink griffins and blue amorini sport in a forest of yellow violins and bassoons. It was pleasant, too, to fling wide the windows, pinching the fingers in unfamiliar fastenings, to lean out into sunshine with beautiful hills and trees and marble churches opposite, and, close below, Arno, gurgling against the embankment of the road.E. M. Forster Violins Sayings By E. M. Forster: It was pleasant to wake up in Florence, to open the eyes upon a bright
In the late 1600s the finest instruments originated from three rural families whose workshops were side by side in the Italian village of Cremona. First were the Amatis, and outside their shop hung a sign: "The best violins in all Italy." Not to be outdone, their next-door neighbors, the family Guarnerius, hung a bolder sign proclaiming: "The Best Violins In All The World!" At the end of the street was the workshop of Anton Stradivarius, and on its front door was a simple notice which read: "The best violins on the block."Freda Bright Violins Sayings By Freda Bright: In the late 1600s the finest instruments originated from three rural families whose workshops were
He didn't say "that's weird". He wouldn't have said "that's weird" if a flock of sheep had cycled past playing violins. It wasn't the sort of thing a responsible engineer said.Terry Pratchett Violins Sayings By Terry Pratchett: He didn't say "that's weird". He wouldn't have said "that's weird" if a flock of
Sometimes in films it's nice to have violins on either side, rather than on one side, so you've got more of a stereo picture with the violins. Sometimes it's good to have the basses in the middle.Anne Dudley Violins Sayings By Anne Dudley: Sometimes in films it's nice to have violins on either side, rather than on one
I can't use logic concerning my feelings, my feelings demand musical notes, violins, guitar solos, the stomping of feet, poetic language, metaphors, poetic lines about birds or deserts or tree-crowded forests.Noah Cicero Violins Sayings By Noah Cicero: I can't use logic concerning my feelings, my feelings demand musical notes, violins, guitar solos,
When it comes to orchestral music, whenever I see a concert with orchestra and strings, and I arrive and there are speakers up, my heart always sinks a little bit, and I think, 'It's going to be down to some sound guy's ideas.' Contact microphones on the violins. I'm a purist, I suppose.Jonny Greenwood Violins Sayings By Jonny Greenwood: When it comes to orchestral music, whenever I see a concert with orchestra and strings,
She waited uneasily and shyly. From afar he saw that her eyes
clearly her father's
were filled with desperate innocence. He pictured, in her, his own redemption. Violins and lit candles revolved in the sky. Leo ran forward with flowers out-thrust.
Bernard Malamud Violins Sayings By Bernard Malamud: She waited uneasily and shyly. From afar he saw that her eyesclearly her father'swere filled
All music is what awakes from you when you are reminded by the instruments. It is not the violins and the cornets-it is not the oboe nor the beating drums, nor the score of the baritone singer singing his sweet romanza-nor that of the women's chorus; it is nearer and farther than they.Walt Whitman Violins Sayings By Walt Whitman: All music is what awakes from you when you are reminded by the instruments. It
Lakes, carillonst,
Pools and bells,
Fifes and freshets,
Harps and wells;
Flutes and rivers,
Streams, bassoons,
Geysers, trumpets,

Hear the music,

As we poor lambs
All go to slaughter.
I love you Eliot.
Good-bye. I cry.
Tears and violins.
Hearts and flowers,
Flowers and tears.
Rosewater, good-bye.

Contrasts
The windows of my poetry are wide open on the boulevards and in the shop windows
Shine
The precious stones of light
Listen to the violins of the limousines and the xylophones of the linotypes
The sketcher washes with the hand-towel of the sky
All is color spots
And the hats of the women passing by are comets in the conflagration of the evening
Unity
There's no more unity
All the clocks now read midnight after being set back ten minutes
There's no more time.
There's no more money.
In the Chamber
They are spoiling the marvelous elements of raw material
("Contrasts")

We are so not breaking out the violins and pity partying.Gena Showalter Violins Sayings By Gena Showalter: We are so not breaking out the violins and pity partying.
Furniture is like that. Used and enjoyed as intended, it absorbs the experience and exudes it back into the atmosphere, but if simply bought for effect and left to languish in a corner, it vibrates with melancholy. Furnishings in museums ... are as unspeakably tragic as the unvisited inmates of old folk's homes. The untuned violins and hardback books used to bring 'character' to postwar suburban pubs crouch uncomfortably in their imposed roles like caged pumas in a zoo. The stately kitchen that is never or rarely used to bring forth lavish feasts for appreciative audiences turns inward and cold.Will Wiles Violins Sayings By Will Wiles: Furniture is like that. Used and enjoyed as intended, it absorbs the experience and exudes
Walk my way and a thousand violins begin to play, or it might be the sound of your hello.Johnny Mathis Violins Sayings By Johnny Mathis: Walk my way and a thousand violins begin to play, or it might be the
You know, the truth is that us actors would all like to believe we re-invent the wheel, every time we play a character. But, we're human beings and our instruments are not violins, they are our bodies and our consciousness and our collective life experience.John C. Reilly Violins Sayings By John C. Reilly: You know, the truth is that us actors would all like to believe we re-invent
And then once in the music storage room. It was cold. The room was small with thin gray carpet and I cried after in my bed thinking of how sad the violins looked alone in the corner. It was embarrassing to have sex in front of the wrong things, especially a violin, which was so dignified at every angleAlison Espach Violins Sayings By Alison Espach: And then once in the music storage room. It was cold. The room was small
Music and dance. What I have written must surely suggest a people cursed by Heaven,... No people on earth, I am persuaded, loves music so well, nor dance, nor oratory, though the music falls strangely on my ears... More than once I have been at Mr. Treacy's when at close of dinner, some traveling harper would be called in, blind as often as not, his fingernails kept long and the mysteries of his art hidden in their horny ridges. The music would come to us with the sadness of a lost world, each note a messenger sent wandering among the Waterford goblets. Riding home late at night, past tavern or alehouse, I would hear harps and violins, thudding feet rising to a frenzy. I have seen them dancing at evening on fairdays, in meadows decreed by custom for such purposes, their bodies swift-moving, and their faces impassive but bright-eyed, intent. I have watched them in silence, reins held loosely in my hand, and have marveled at the stillness of my own body, my shoulders rigid and heavy.Thomas Flanagan Violins Sayings By Thomas Flanagan: Music and dance. What I have written must surely suggest a people cursed by Heaven,...
And then as the knives and forks began to clank softly above the white tablecloths, the violins would rise alone, now suddenly mature although tentative and unsure just a short while before; slim and narrow-waisted, they eloquently proceeded with their task, took up again the lost human cause, and pleaded before the indifferent tribunal of stars, now set in a sky on which the shapes of the instruments floated like water signs or fragments of keys, unfinished lyres or swans, an imitatory, thoughtless starry commentary on the margin of music.Bruno Schulz Violins Sayings By Bruno Schulz: And then as the knives and forks began to clank softly above the white tablecloths,
Guilty, Your Honor, but only of minor transgressions. My motto is, 'Let no girl, no gun, no cards, no violins, no dress, no tobacco, no laziness keep you from your books.Irving Stone Violins Sayings By Irving Stone: Guilty, Your Honor, but only of minor transgressions. My motto is, 'Let no girl, no
I often play on the cello-bass side of the orchestra, because I prefer the deep sounds. I can't hear the violins well.Evelyn Glennie Violins Sayings By Evelyn Glennie: I often play on the cello-bass side of the orchestra, because I prefer the deep
The violin is very beautiful. Some people relate it as the shape of a lady, but, whether you like it or not, it's been so for more than 400 years, unlike modern stuff that easily looks dated. But I think it's very personal and unique that, although each violin looks pretty similar, that no two violins sound the same.Sirena Huang Violins Sayings By Sirena Huang: The violin is very beautiful. Some people relate it as the shape of a lady,
On the Overture of the Rossini opera "Il SIgnor Bruschino" - The sound of the second violins striking the backs of their bows against the metal candle holders shortly after the start of the overture was judged 'incomprehensible' by the Giornale. Rossini feared as much. 'Dio ti salvi l'anima' (God save your soul), he wrote on the manuscript at the end of the overture).Richard Osborne Violins Sayings By Richard Osborne: On the Overture of the Rossini opera "Il SIgnor Bruschino" - The sound of the
Amory wandered slowly up the avenue and thought of the night as inevitably his
the pageantry and carnival of rich dusk and dim streets ... it seemed that he had closed the book of fading harmonies at last and stepped into the sensuous vibrant walks of life. Everywhere these countless lights, this promise of a night of streets and singing
he moved in a half-dream through the crowd as if expecting to meet Rosalind hurrying toward him with eager feet from every corner ... How the unforgettable faces of dusk would blend to her, the myriad footsteps, a thousand overtures, would blend to her footsteps; and there would be more drunkenness than wine in the softness of her eyes on his. Even his dreams now were faint violins drifting like summer sounds upon the summer air.
F Scott Fitzgerald Violins Sayings By F Scott Fitzgerald: Amory wandered slowly up the avenue and thought of the night as inevitably his the
We are like violins. We can be used as doorstops, or we can make music.Barbara Sher Violins Sayings By Barbara Sher: We are like violins. We can be used as doorstops, or we can make music.
Violins sang, brass crowed, while bassoons, she felt, rumbled according to a Richter scale all of their own. CharlieAlexander McCall Smith Violins Sayings By Alexander McCall Smith: Violins sang, brass crowed, while bassoons, she felt, rumbled according to a Richter scale all
One cannot inherit a talent for the violin - there are no violins in nature. Instead, one must be motivated, able to benefit from practice, and persevering.Marilyn Vos Savant Violins Sayings By Marilyn Vos Savant: One cannot inherit a talent for the violin - there are no violins in nature.
The streets of Prague were a fantasia scarcely touched by the twenty-first century - or the twentieth or nineteenth, for that matter. It was a city of alchemists and dreamers, its medieval cobbles once trod by golems, mystics, invading armies. Tall houses glowed goldenrod and carmine and eggshell blue, embellished with Rococo plasterwork and capped in roofs of uniform red. Baroque cupolas were the soft green of antique copper, and Gothic steeples stood ready to impale fallen angels. The wind carried the memory of magic, revolution, violins, and the cobbled lanes meandered like creeks. Thugs wore Motzart wigs and pushed chamber music on street corners, and marionettes hung in windows, making the whole city seem like a theater with unseen puppeteers crouched behind velvet.Laini Taylor Violins Sayings By Laini Taylor: The streets of Prague were a fantasia scarcely touched by the twenty-first century - or
Beethoven and Wagner for many years wrung our hearts. But now we are sated with them and derive much greater pleasure from ideally combining the noise of streetcars, internal-combustion engines, automobiles, and bust crowds than from rehearsing, for example, the 'Eroica' or the 'Pastorale' ... away! les ust be gone, since we shall not much longer succeed in restraining a desire to create a new musical realism by a generous distribution of sonorous blows and slaps, leaping numbly over violins, pianofortes, contrabasses, and groaning organs, Away!Luigi Russolo Violins Sayings By Luigi Russolo: Beethoven and Wagner for many years wrung our hearts. But now we are sated with
The celebrated painter Gainsborough got as much pleasure from seeing violins as from hearing them.Georg C. Lichtenberg Violins Sayings By Georg C. Lichtenberg: The celebrated painter Gainsborough got as much pleasure from seeing violins as from hearing them.
Evening Concert, Sainte-Chapelle
The celebrated windows flamed with light
directly pouring north across the Seine;
we rustled into place. Then violins
vaunting Vivaldi's strident strength, then Brahms,
seemed to suck with their passionate sweetness,
bit by bit, the vigor from the red,
the blazing blue, so that the listening eye
saw suddenly the thick black lines, in shapes
of shield and cross and strut and brace, that held
the holy glowing fantasy together.
The music surged; the glow became a milk,
a whisper to the eye, a glimmer ebbed
until our beating hearts, our violins
were cased in thin but solid sheets of lead.
John Updike Violins Sayings By John Updike: Evening Concert, Sainte-Chapelle The celebrated windows flamed with lightdirectly pouring north across the Seine;we rustled
Don't you dare call me Grissie, you - you - degenerate! I have no idea what happened between you and Helene Godwin last night, but I can only assume that she sent you packing. And for you to turn from practically panting at the mere mention of her name - because you were, Garret, you know you were - to spreading vile rumors about her is low! Low and unworthy of you!'
'She lied to me,' Mayne forced out, walking to the mantelpiece.
'Wait!' his sister said contemptuously. 'Do I hear the sound of violins wailing? So you've never lied, is that it? You - who've made a name for yourself by sleeping with half the married women in London? You dare reproach a woman for lying?
Eloisa James Violins Sayings By Eloisa James: Don't you dare call me Grissie, you - you - degenerate! I have no idea
A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins.Laurie Colwin Violins Sayings By Laurie Colwin: A world without tomatoes is like a string quartet without violins.
I got in the school band and the school choir. It all hit me like a ton of bricks, everything just came out. I played percussion for a while, and stayed after school forever just tinkering around with different things, the clarinets and the violins.Quincy Jones Violins Sayings By Quincy Jones: I got in the school band and the school choir. It all hit me like
I began to feel again something that I had been only dimly aware of before. It was a small, surprising sense of disappointment even as he was kissing me, but the violins were so loud at the time I could hear nothing else. Now the disappointment was returning and with it the realization that the magic had come only from the moment, not from him. It was different with you. In the eyes and ears of my heart, you and the magic are one and the same. The setting never mattered. On the sidewalk in front of my house, at the enchanted place in the desert, walking the halls at school- where I was with you, I heard violins.Jerry Spinelli Violins Sayings By Jerry Spinelli: I began to feel again something that I had been only dimly aware of before.
Jutta drags herself closer; she watches her brother with outsize eyes. A piano chases the violins. Then woodwinds. The strings sprint, woodwinds fluttering behind. More instruments join in. Flutes? Harps? The song races, seems to loop back over itself. "Werner?" Jutta whispers. He blinks;Anthony Doerr Violins Sayings By Anthony Doerr: Jutta drags herself closer; she watches her brother with outsize eyes. A piano chases the
Here in England there's a glass wall between you and the taste of reality. I don't want to see the last true passion tamed by railways, and men with Bibles telling everyone to cover their bodies." He spread his powerful, elegant hands. "Play your string quintets, by all means, Mr. Narraway, but don't silence the drums simply because you don't understand them. The men who play violins have steel and gunpowder, and the men who play drums don't.Anne Perry Violins Sayings By Anne Perry: Here in England there's a glass wall between you and the taste of reality. I

It is sweet to dance to violins
When love and life are fair:
To dance to flutes, to dance to lutes
Is delicate and rare:
But it is not sweet with nimble feet
To dance upon the air!
Oscar Wilde Violins Sayings By Oscar Wilde: It is sweet to dance to violinsWhen love and life are fair:To dance to flutes,
I'd never been in love, because I was waiting for the silent-movie love: big eyes and violins, chattering without sound, pure. Nobody had loved right since 1926.Rich Horton Violins Sayings By Rich Horton: I'd never been in love, because I was waiting for the silent-movie love: big eyes

I pressed PLAY and started up Chiron's favorite
the All-Time Greatest Hits of Dean Martin. Suddenly the air was filled with violins and a bunch of guys moaning in Italian.
The demon pigeons went nuts. They started flying in circles, running into each other like they wanted to bash their own brains out.
Rick Riordan Violins Sayings By Rick Riordan: I pressed PLAY and started up Chiron's favoritethe All-Time Greatest Hits of Dean Martin. Suddenly
Sex and violence was never really my cup of tea; I was always more into sax and violins.Wim Wenders Violins Sayings By Wim Wenders: Sex and violence was never really my cup of tea; I was always more into
The Violins waltzed. The Cellos and Basses provided accompaniment. The Violas mourned their fate, while the Concertmaster showed off. The Flutes did bird imitations ... repeatedly, and the reed instruments had the good taste to admire my jacket. The Trumpets held a parade in honor of our great nation, while the French Horns waxed nostalgic about something or other. The Trombones had too much to drink. The Percussion beat the band, and the Tuba stayed home playing cards with his landlady, the Harp, taking sips of warm milk a blue little cup.
But the Composer is still dead.
Lemony Snicket Violins Sayings By Lemony Snicket: The Violins waltzed. The Cellos and Basses provided accompaniment. The Violas mourned their fate, while
Some of the streets are, however, genuinely narrow. These same streets may not be filled with machine-gun fire and the dramatic screech of violins, but they overflow with the invisible and innumerable longings of the human heart. Love continues to minister here, but betrayal still wears its perfidious face, hatred hollows out the weak man's breast, revenge pursues its self-defeating course; and the unfulfilled dreams of the multitude haunt the island like so many hungry ghosts.John Dolan Violins Sayings By John Dolan: Some of the streets are, however, genuinely narrow. These same streets may not be filled
There were pauses in the music for the rushing, calling, halting piano. Everything would stop except the climbing of the soloist; he would reach a height and everything would join him, the violins first and then the horns; and then the deep blue bass and the flute and the bitter trampling drums; beating, beating and mounting together and stopping with a crash like daybreak. When I first heard the Messiah I was alone; my blood bubbled like fire and wine; I cried; like an infant crying for its mother's milk; or a sinner running to meet Jesus.James Baldwin Violins Sayings By James Baldwin: There were pauses in the music for the rushing, calling, halting piano. Everything would stop
The sunlight, penetrating the gaps in the tall trees, plays chess on the gravestones, shifting slowly and thoughtfully across the worn old stones. The wind, like a hundred violins, plays perpetually in the topmost branches of the deodars.Ruskin Bond Violins Sayings By Ruskin Bond: The sunlight, penetrating the gaps in the tall trees, plays chess on the gravestones, shifting
To extend compassion to a so-called villain, to forgive those who have wronged you, and to find common ground with someone who has been awfully isolated are not acts typically met with fireworks and swelling violins. More often than not, they are pushed away. To love, really love, is to do them anyway.Vironika Tugaleva Violins Sayings By Vironika Tugaleva: To extend compassion to a so-called villain, to forgive those who have wronged you, and
The wild splash of red that was her hair tumbled over the vivid green of the bedspread. Shadows from the candle shifted over her face, reminding him of the impression he'd first had of her-the Gypsy-open fires,weeping violins. Her eyes were dark, pure gray,and waiting.
"We MacGregors," he murmured, "have ways of ... dealing with Campbells."
His mouth lowered but paused a whisper from hers.He saw that her lids had fluttered down yet hadn't closed. She watched him through her lashes while her breath came quickly.Slowly he shifted his head to nibble along her jawline.
Nora Roberts Violins Sayings By Nora Roberts: The wild splash of red that was her hair tumbled over the vivid green of
Words are tricky things, a friend of his has told him, they're much more tricky than violins.Michael Ondaatje Violins Sayings By Michael Ondaatje: Words are tricky things, a friend of his has told him, they're much more tricky
While the accompanimental [sic] figures come from Prelude, the melody is wholly original to this theme. First stated on a lonely duduk, and then in octaves by the violins and violas, it is a melancholy and contemplative tune.Bear McCreary Violins Sayings By Bear McCreary: While the accompanimental [sic] figures come from Prelude, the melody is wholly original to this
To put it another way, pain is God's megaphone to rouse a deaf world. Why must it be pain? Why can't he rouse us more gently, with violins or laughter? Because the dream from which we must be wakened, is the dream that all is well.William Nicholson Violins Sayings By William Nicholson: To put it another way, pain is God's megaphone to rouse a deaf world. Why
[When asked if the voice is an instrument:] Yes, of course. Some are violins, some are fountain pens and some are stethoscopes. And others are just washboards.Marilyn Vos Savant Violins Sayings By Marilyn Vos Savant: [When asked if the voice is an instrument:] Yes, of course. Some are violins, some
There were no violins or warning bells when I pulled the janitor's theme off the top of the stack and set it before me, no sense that my little life was about to change. But we never know, do we? Life turns on a dime.Stephen King Violins Sayings By Stephen King: There were no violins or warning bells when I pulled the janitor's theme off the
I inherited a painting and a violin which turned out to be a Rembrandt and a Stradivarius. Unfortunately, Rembrandt made lousy violins and Stradivarius was a terrible painter.Tommy Cooper Violins Sayings By Tommy Cooper: I inherited a painting and a violin which turned out to be a Rembrandt and
A thousand violins cloy very rapidly without percussion.John Fowles Violins Sayings By John Fowles: A thousand violins cloy very rapidly without percussion.
What point is there in dying in a ward, listening to the moans and rasps of the terminally ill? Wouldn't it be better to spend the twenty-seven thousand on a banquet, then, after taking poison, depart for the other world to the sound of violins, surrounded by intoxicated beautiful women and dashing friends?Mikhail Bulgakov Violins Sayings By Mikhail Bulgakov: What point is there in dying in a ward, listening to the moans and rasps
Hot damn. Cue the violins and happy cartoon bunnies. I was in the middle of a Disney moment. Because this guy was gorgeous. And we were standing so close to each other. If he hadn't been holding onto a barely contained rage directed at yours truly, it could have almost been construed as romantic.A Meredith Walters Violins Sayings By A Meredith Walters: Hot damn. Cue the violins and happy cartoon bunnies. I was in the middle of
If you take the hard facts of a failed relationship, it's pretty grim. But if you make an album out of it, and if the violins represent all the tears, you create something magical out of something very normal.Lykke Li Violins Sayings By Lykke Li: If you take the hard facts of a failed relationship, it's pretty grim. But if
My mother told stories - of their life in the war and how she'd played the accordion in the air-raid shelter and it had got rid of the rats. Apparently rats like violins and pianos but they can't stand the accordion ...Jeanette Winterson Violins Sayings By Jeanette Winterson: My mother told stories - of their life in the war and how she'd played
I hate being manipulated by song. Don't tell me what I should be feeling. I don't want cellos or violins to be telling me that I should be bawling right now.Vera Farmiga Violins Sayings By Vera Farmiga: I hate being manipulated by song. Don't tell me what I should be feeling. I
Hillingham first saw the women by the dwile flonkers. He had spent the day walking around Dover's Hill, the shallow amphitheatre where the Cotswold Olimpick Games took place and had taken, he thought, some good photographs so far. The place was heaving and he had captured some of that, he hoped; the shifting bustle as people flocked from event to event and laughed and shouted and ate and drank. The sound of cymbals and mandolins and violins and guitars filled the air about the crowd, leaping around the brightly costumed figures and the smells of roasting meat and open fires.

Armed and dangerous, ain't too many can bang with us
Straight up weed no angel dust, label us Notorious
Thug ass niggaz that love to bust, it's strange to us
Y'all niggaz be scramblin, gamblin
Up in restaraunts with mandolins, and violins
We just sittin here tryin to win, tryin not to sin
High off weed and lots of gin
So much smoke need oxygen, steadily countin them Benjamins

He can hum the music in his old man's quivering voice, but he prefers it in his head, where it lives on in violins and reedy winds. If he imagines it in rehearsal he can remember every step of his three-minute solo as if he had danced it only yesterday, but he knows, too, that one time, onstage in Berlin, he had not danced it as he had learned it; this much he knows but cannot recreate, could no recreate it even a moment after he had finished dancing it. While dancing he had felt blind to the stage and audience, deaf to the music. He had let his body do what it needed to do, free to expand and contract in space, to soar and spin. So, accordingly, when he tries to remember the way he danced it on stage, he cannot hear the music or feel his feet or get a sense of the audience. He is embryonic, momentarily cut off from the world around him. The three most important minutes of his life, the ones that determined his fate and future, are the three to which he cannot gain access, ever.Evan Fallenberg Violins Sayings By Evan Fallenberg: He can hum the music in his old man's quivering voice, but he prefers it
Every single one of us can do things that no one else can do - can love things that no one else can love. We are like violins. We can be used for doorstops, or we can make music. You know what to do.Barbara Sher Violins Sayings By Barbara Sher: Every single one of us can do things that no one else can do -
Evil Hall had been transformed into a magnificent ballroom, glittering with green tinsel, black balloons, thousands of green-flamed candles, and a spinning chandelier streaking wall murals with emerald bursts of light. Around a towering ice sculpture of two entwined snakes, Hort and Dot stumbled through a waltz, Anadil wrapped her arms around Vex, Brone tried not to step on Mona's green feet, and Hester and Ravan swayed and whispered as more villainous couples waltzed around them. Ravan's bunk mates picked up the music on reed violins as more pairs flooded onto the floor, clumsy, bashful, but aglow with happiness, dancing beneath a spangled banner:

It is as absurd to say that a man can't love one woman all the time as it is to say that a violinist needs several violins to play the same piece of music.Honore De Balzac Violins Sayings By Honore De Balzac: It is as absurd to say that a man can't love one woman all the
She loved him more than ever. And not because she'd scoured file after file of reports and summaries and data and photographs. Not because he was the dreamy, untouchable Carswell Thorne that she'd imagined kissing on the banks of a starlit river while fireworks exploded overhead and violins played in the background. Now he was the Carswell Thorne who had given her strength in the desert. Who had come for her when she was kidnapped. Who had kissed her when hope was lost and death was imminent.Marissa Meyer Violins Sayings By Marissa Meyer: She loved him more than ever. And not because she'd scoured file after file of
There were sharp little blows in the music, and waves of quick, fine notes that burst and rolled like the thin, clear ringing of broken glass. There were slow notes, as if the cords of the violins trembled in hesitation, tense with the fullness of sound, taking a few measured steps before the leap into the explosion of laughter.Ayn Rand Violins Sayings By Ayn Rand: There were sharp little blows in the music, and waves of quick, fine notes that
If you were able to hear lime juice, it would sound like violins.Diana Wynne Jones Violins Sayings By Diana Wynne Jones: If you were able to hear lime juice, it would sound like violins.
Cinderella
The prince leans to the girl in scarlet heels,
Her green eyes slant, hair flaring in a fan
Of silver as the rondo slows; now reels
Begin on tilted violins to span
The whole revolving tall glass palace hall
Where guests slide gliding into light like wine;
Rose candles flicker on the lilac wall
Reflecting in a million flagons' shine,
And glided couples all in whirling trance
Follow holiday revel begun long since,
Until near twelve the strange girl all at once
Guilt-stricken halts, pales, clings to the prince
As amid the hectic music and cocktail talk
She hears the caustic ticking of the clock.
Sylvia Plath Violins Sayings By Sylvia Plath: CinderellaThe prince leans to the girl in scarlet heels,Her green eyes slant, hair flaring in
Tis a petty kind of fame At best, that comes of making violins; And saves no masses, either. Thou wilt go To purgatory none the less.George Eliot Violins Sayings By George Eliot: Tis a petty kind of fame At best, that comes of making violins; And saves
I don't need to sleep to play. I'm crazy anyway. Being crazier still could only help.Anne Rice Violins Sayings By Anne Rice: I don't need to sleep to play. I'm crazy anyway. Being crazier still could only
She also smiles up at him, and all that's missing is rose petals drifting down and violins playing.Jo Raven Violins Sayings By Jo Raven: She also smiles up at him, and all that's missing is rose petals drifting down
Usually bands with violins - it's this little, poorly amplified looking kind of futile on stage, and that's not the way that my music is put together.Andrew Bird Violins Sayings By Andrew Bird: Usually bands with violins - it's this little, poorly amplified looking kind of futile on
I drew it over my skin like a violins bow, No one would ever hear the song of my shame.Jodi Picoult Violins Sayings By Jodi Picoult: I drew it over my skin like a violins bow, No one would ever hear
I didn't know jack, but I did know that even after the people you love are torn from you, time keeps beating away at the black metronome that's called life. It doesn't care that you've cracked wide open, that you're screaming for everyone to just stop. It doesn't hear you. You are nothing. People still go to dinner, planes take off and land, lions roar, violins play. And you are left in your corner, hanging on to memories, nothing more than a speck of dust on the metronome's base. - from the journal of Violet St. LyonsIlsa Madden-Mills Violins Sayings By Ilsa Madden-Mills: I didn't know jack, but I did know that even after the people you love
I don't sleep with a violin in my bed, but there is something very magical about the instrument. You open up the case; it's a masterpiece, it's gorgeous, the varnish is still there from 300 years ago. People who know violins, they look at it and it's almost like a face.Joshua Bell Violins Sayings By Joshua Bell: I don't sleep with a violin in my bed, but there is something very magical
Women play cellos and violins in symphony orchestras. They're playing Beethoven and Bach. What do you mean they can't play rock and roll?Joan Jett Violins Sayings By Joan Jett: Women play cellos and violins in symphony orchestras. They're playing Beethoven and Bach. What do
It is absurd to pretend that one cannot love the same woman always, as to pretend that a good artist needs several violins to execute a piece of music.Honore De Balzac Violins Sayings By Honore De Balzac: It is absurd to pretend that one cannot love the same woman always, as to
Charlie Chaplin is the greatest artist of the 20th century. He takes me from laughter to tears in seconds. And he was one of the very first funny men. It's like the original violins were made in Cremona and there's never been any better since. Sometimes the best come right off the bat.Emo Philips Violins Sayings By Emo Philips: Charlie Chaplin is the greatest artist of the 20th century. He takes me from laughter

There's no reason why everyone has to listen to records in hi-fi. Having the violins on the left and the bass on the right doesn't make the music more profound. It's just a more complex way of stimulating a bored imagination.Haruki Murakami Violins Sayings By Haruki Murakami: There's no reason why everyone has to listen to records in hi-fi. Having the violins
And I realized that people, from new-made friends to life-long family, inevitably come and go in the composition of our lives, but that once they have appeared, they never really leave. And I realized too that the people we love - the memory of the people we love, their enduring, pulsing presence in our lives - is like those violins. Every day, in one form or another, we take them out and play them, if just for a while. We become them, swooping, spiraling, soaring to the apex of our minds. We honor them and keep them alive - as they do us, intertwined.Don George Violins Sayings By Don George: And I realized that people, from new-made friends to life-long family, inevitably come and go
What's the use of dying in a ward surrounded by a lot of groaning and croaking incurables? Wouldn't it be much better to throw a party with that twenty-seven thousand and take poison and depart for the other world to the sound of violins, surrounded by lovely drunken girls and happy friends?Mikhail Bulgakov Violins Sayings By Mikhail Bulgakov: What's the use of dying in a ward surrounded by a lot of groaning and
Walter turned on the radio: electric violins wailing, twisted romance, the four-square beat of heartbreak. Trite suffering, but suffering nonetheless. The entertainment business. What voyeurs we have all become.Margaret Atwood Violins Sayings By Margaret Atwood: Walter turned on the radio: electric violins wailing, twisted romance, the four-square beat of heartbreak.
Instruments are a phenomenal investment, especially violins and violas and celli, because the value really doesn't go down, and it just rises up at incredible speed and has done, and I believe will continue to do so, because these rare instruments are not getting more. They are getting less and less through the years.Aleksey Igudesman Violins Sayings By Aleksey Igudesman: Instruments are a phenomenal investment, especially violins and violas and celli, because the value really
A guitar is a piece of wood, and if this piece is resonating in a period of 40 or 60 years, it kind of gets to know what it is after awhile ... the reason violinists play violins that are hundreds of years old. The wood learns to sing.Dave Genn Violins Sayings By Dave Genn: A guitar is a piece of wood, and if this piece is resonating in a
begins with you walking towards a huge pit. The pit is on the other side of a precipice, which you cannot see over until you are right at its edge. Your death is awaiting you in that pit. You don't know what it looks like or sounds like or smells like. You don't know whether it will be good or bad. You just walk towards it. Your will is a clarinet and your footsteps are attended by all the violins. The closer you get to the pit, the more you begin to have theZadie Smith Violins Sayings By Zadie Smith: begins with you walking towards a huge pit. The pit is on the other side
