Quotes About Taste In Music

"He was sitting in the midst of a childrens party at Harolds Cross. His silent watchful manner had grown upon him and he took little part in the games. The children, wearing the spoils of their crackers, danced and romped noisily and, though he tried to share their merriment, he felt himself a gloomy figure amid the gay cocked hats and sunbonnets.But when he had sung his song and withdrawn into a snug corner of the room he began to taste the joy of his loneliness. The mirth, which in the beginning of the evening had seemed to him false and trivial, was like a sothing air to him, passing gaily by his senses, hiding from other eyes the feverish agitation of his blood while through the circling of the dancers and amid the music and laughter her glance travelled to his corner, flattering, taunting, searching, exciting his heart." - Author: James Joyce

Quotes About Allende

"Die Schönheiten dieser neuen Gegenden setzten mich über die Maßen in Erstaunen. Prachtvolle Gestaltungen, Lagen und Stellungen der Eisblöcke. Hier sahen sie aus wie eine orientalische Stadt mit zahllosen Minaretts und Moscheen; dort wie eine durch Erdbeben zerfallene Stadt. Ansichten, die in den schief fallenden Sonnenstrahlen unaufhörlich wechselten oder inmitten der Schneestürme sich in graue Nebel verloren. Dann allerwärts polterndes Zusammenstürzen hinpurzelnder Eisberge mit wechselnden Dekorationen wie in einem Diorama." - Author: Jules Verne
