Famous quotes containing the word hear:

    We hear a great deal of lamentation these days about writers having all taken themselves to the colleges and universities where they live decorously instead of going out and getting firsthand information about life. The fact is that anybody who has survived his childhood has enough information about life to last him the rest of his days.
    Flannery O’Connor (1925–1964)

    Your wife would give you little thanks for that
    If she were by to hear you make the offer.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    If you love music, hear it; go to operas, concerts and pay fiddlers to play to you; but I insist on your neither piping nor fiddling yourself. It puts a gentleman in a very frivolous, contemptible light.... Few things would mortify me more than to see you bearing a part in a concert, with a fiddle under your chin, or a pipe in your mouth.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
