The more faithfully you listen to the voices within you, the better you will hear what is sounding outside.
— Dag Hammarskjold

Touch not the flute when drums are sounding around; when fools have the word, the wise will be silent.
Johann Gottfried Von Herder sounding quote

Though I speak with the tongues of men and angels and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
— Bible

If you have any trouble sounding condescending, find a Unix user to show you how it's done.
— Scott Adams

Come, my friends, 'T is not too late to seek a newer world. Push off, and sitting well in order smite The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all the western stars, until I die. It may be that the gulfs will wash us down: It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles, And see the great Achilles, whom we knew. Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho' We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
— Alfred Lord Tennyson
