I can't explain the birds to you even if I tried. In the early morning, when the sun's rays peek over the mountain and subtly light up the landscape in a glow that, if audible, would sound like a hum, the birds sing. They sing in a layered symphony, hundreds deep. You really can't believe how beautiful it is. You hear bass notes from across the farm and soprano notes from the tree in front of you all at once, at varying volumes, like a massive choir that stretches across fifty acres of land. I love birds. But not as much as my wife loves them. My wife thinks about them, whereas I only notice them once they call for attention. But she looks for them, builds fountains for them, and saves them after they crash into windows. I've seen her save many birds. She holds them gently in the palm of her hand, and she takes them to one of the fountains she's built especially for them and holds their beaks up to the gentle trickle of water to let them drink, to wake them up from their dazed stupor. No matter how much time it takes, she doesn't leave them until they recover. And they mostly always do. ~ Portia De Rossi
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Portia De Rossi
Autumn is not nobody, but a real, actual force of nature. She is so much more than just some run-of-the-mill person. She's Bette David and Dorothy Parker and Madonna. Autumn is Tyler Durden and Tony Soprano. Autumn is Cthulhu, Destroyer of Worlds. ~ Brenna Yovanoff
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Brenna Yovanoff
Belief in oneself is a crucial quality of leadership, because 'a house divided against itself cannot stand.' A leader who fluctuates back and forth sends a very wavery signal. Like the soprano who can shatter glass by finding that high note and holding it, a leader who can hold that high note, without wavering, can shatter walls. ~ Laurie Beth Jones
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Laurie Beth Jones
Somewhere along the line Coltrane's soprano sax runs out of steam. Now it's McCoy Tyner's piano solo I hear, the left hand carving out a repetitious rhythm and the right layering on thick, forbidding chords. Like some mythic scene, the music portrays somebody's - a nameless, faceless somebody's - dim past, all the details laid out as clearly as entrails being dragged out of the darkness. Or at least that's how it sounds to me. The patient, repeating music ever so slowly breaks apart the real, rearranging the pieces. It has a hypnotic, menacing smell, just like the forest. ~ Haruki Murakami
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Haruki Murakami
The tendency of modern American women to exclaim 'Hiiiiiiiiiiii!' in soprano octaves and hug each other upon sight can be disconcerting to those unfamiliar with it. ~ Kevin Hearne
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Kevin Hearne
I must be the oldest living child soprano. ~ Kathryn Grayson
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Kathryn Grayson
Everything has become so pop-rock oriented that finding a role for a soprano, and finding an audience for a soprano, is tricky. Unless you're dealing with a revival, which is why I do so many revivals - because my specific tone and vocal quality lends itself to that type of writing. ~ Laura Benanti
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Laura Benanti
Who the hell uses a burner cell phone when they're not trying to hide something? [..] Only dope dealers, and Hell's Angels, and Tony Soprano use burner cell phones. ~ Pat Martin
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Pat Martin
Love is private and primitive and a bit on the funky and frightening side. I think of the Luna card in the Tarot deck: some strange, huge crustacean, its armor glistening and its pinchers wiggling, clatters out of a pool while wild dogs howl at a bulging moon. Underneath the hearts and flowers, love is loony like that. Attempts to housebreak it, to refine it, to dress the crabs up like doves and make them sing soprano always result in thin blood. You end up with a parody. ~ Tom Robbins
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Tom Robbins
My family was very encouraging, and both of my grandparents were both beautiful singers. My grandmother was a coloratura soprano, and my grandfather was an Irish tenor in a barbershop quartet. ~ Clare Bowen
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Clare Bowen
We must regard Sarah Palin as the Carmella Soprano of the GOP
an enabling wife of organized crime, who sees, hears and speaks no evil of the boys in her old-boy network for whom she does this ideological lap dance. ~ Cintra Wilson
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Cintra Wilson
I had already been a young singer. And once, as a profession, I was a young singer, what you would call a soprano in England, but I was an alto in singing Jewish music in bar mitzvahs and weddings and synagogues throughout New York City because, after Israel, New York is probably the biggest Jewish community in the world. ~ Charlemagne Palestine
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Charlemagne Palestine
Then, only a minute later, my mood & my world changed. I hit my first correct soprano 2 note. I don't even know where it came from, but I got it right. It was a D. The soprano 1 to my right was singing the B flat above me. I love that glorious high B flat & I should have been apoplectic with envy about not getting to sing it myself, but instead I was pinned to that D, vibrating with a wondrous musical rapport I'd never felt before. I was feeling harmony. Not just singing it, but physically feeling it. It was a rush. You don't experience this when you're singing the melody. I was completely in the power of the sound we were making together & I just stood there, afraid to move, thinking, Don't end, don't end, don't end. ~ Stacy Horn
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Stacy Horn
You can't sing baritone when you're a soprano. ~ Jim Crace
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Jim Crace
It was just as shocking for me to sing opera in a falsetto soprano in Germany. ~ Klaus Nomi
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Klaus Nomi
My high-school a cappella teacher would embarrass me in front of the choir. 'Mavis, you're in the basement. Mavis, you're singing with the boys.' I said, 'Mr. Finch, my voice isn't soprano. I can't sing up there with the girls.' So I just got out of the choir. ~ Mavis Staples
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Mavis Staples
Tall, black-haired, rouged, Kaiser-moustached, he cackled and screamed in weird attitudes, giggling in high soprano, hiding his little black teeth behind an exquisitely gloved hand - the 'poseur' absolute. He was said to have slept with Sarah Bernhard and vomited for a week afterwards. ~ William Sansom
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by William Sansom
Is he really so much like the monster James tracked across Siberia?"
Her eyes popped wide open, and then began flickering wildly from Edward to Seth to me, around and around.
"Not the same?" she snarled in her little girl's soprano. "Impossible! ~ Stephenie Meyer
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Stephenie Meyer
A soprano in Massenet's Don Quixote complained that she had missed her entry in the aria, "because Mr. Challiapin always dies too soon." "Madam, you must be profoundly in error," said Sir Thomas, "No operatic star has yet died half soon enough for me." ~ Thomas Beecham
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Thomas Beecham
I look into his eyes and see myself reflected there, smiling up at him. I'm ready to hear all about it. in bass and soprano. In songs of longing and love. In our voices, braided like the strongest cord.

I take off running up the trail, Will on my heels, the whole world waiting for us at the top of the ridge.

I'm ready to fly through the door and back again.
I'm ready to sing to the wind." -Amber ~ Jaye Robin Brown
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Jaye Robin Brown
My mother had a great voice. Not like mine, not like my sister's, not like my son's - a high soprano voice, but like a bird. I mean, really beautiful. ~ Barbra Streisand
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Barbra Streisand
Nobody was playing the soprano saxophone and certainly nobody was trying to do anything with it. So I was all alone. I didn't know that at first. ~ Steve Lacy
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Steve Lacy
My role is almost a sight-gag. I have to be a woman to sing the lyrics "I am a man" to have it be a joke. I start the lyric in a male-register and a whole coloratura up into a soprano. And other points in the show ... like the guy who likes to be treated like a baby and wear a diaper! ~ Max Von Essen
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Max Von Essen
I heard Sidney Bechet play a Duke Ellington piece and fell in love with the soprano saxophone. ~ Steve Lacy
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Steve Lacy
Shortly after this I was made a member of the boys' choir, it being found that I possessed a clear, strong soprano voice. I enjoyed the singing very much. ~ James Weldon Johnson
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by James Weldon Johnson
And the true inspiration, the sparkling grace note of genius that brings his masterpiece to life, is the soprano counterpoint: a syncopated sequence of exterior hatches in the outer hull sliding open and closed and open again, subtly altering the aerodynamics of the ship to give it just exactly the amount of sideslip or lift or yaw to bring the huge half cruiser into the approach cone of a pinpoint target an eighth of the planet away. ~ Matthew Woodring Stover
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Matthew Woodring Stover
A couple of inches up and right and he would have been a soprano. ~ J.R. Ward
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by J.R. Ward
The whole thing of singing on my own has been accidental and random. I sang a huge amount as a kid, and I was a boy soprano. I didn't do that much classical music; I did a little bit. I had a lovely voice. And then when my voice dropped, I didn't worry about it consciously because I wasn't that invested in my singing at the time. ~ Sam Amidon
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Sam Amidon
I remember at the age of, and I'll say this, 10 and a half, 11, I had a natural boy soprano. ~ Anthony Warlow
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Anthony Warlow
Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. ... It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see. ~ Ann Patchett
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Ann Patchett
I'm a lyric soprano. I can try to step outside that and do different kind of singing, but it's not something I can sustain over the long haul, and what is good for your voice is good for your career. ~ Victoria Clark
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Victoria Clark
Nobody inspired me more than Julie Andrews, who is a classically trained soprano herself. ~ Lesley Garrett
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Lesley Garrett
Directors didn't know what to do with me in college. I didn't really sound like a belter. I didn't look like a soprano. But in New York, I was in the right place at the right time, where my unusualness fit the bill. ~ Jessie Mueller
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Jessie Mueller
Why was there never an opera that ended with a soprano who was free? ~ Alexander Chee
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Alexander Chee
I feel most spiritual when I am listening to a soprano voice soaring to the top of its range at the most dramatic point of an aria. It feels like a geyser shooting up from the center of the earth and reaching for the stars. ~ China Forbes
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by China Forbes
There're lots of musicians in my family, too. My mother sings incredibly well. I've got to make a record with my mother's voice on it. She sings a lyric soprano. We do the opposite. I'm a baritone. She's a star singer in her church. She always does her solo. ~ Grace Jones
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Grace Jones
The sirens droned on, a soprano counterpoint to the bombs' relentless bass, their pitch so eerily human it sounded like every soul in London had taken to their rooftops to cry out collective despair. ~ Ransom Riggs
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Ransom Riggs
There was some rustling as the gown was cast over the soprano's shoulders, or so Lina assumed, and then the alto and Madame Rocque started cooing.
But the soprano cut through it decisively. 'I look like an orange without its rind,' she said firmly. ~ Eloisa James
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Eloisa James
Opera is when a tenor and soprano want to make love, but are prevented from doing so by a baritone. ~ George Bernard Shaw
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by George Bernard Shaw
The warlords took part in atrocities during the civil war in Afghanistan. They looted, they raped, they killed. They have become incredibly empowered and entrenched. They live in mansions, they have jobs in the government, and they're incredibly powerful. In Kabul, people don't want to speak about it too publicly, because these people are essentially like Tony Soprano. ~ Khaled Hosseini
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Khaled Hosseini
Coincidentally the couple who had endowed it had lived in her parents' building. They had had an eight-year-old with a pretty singing voice who drowned at a Maine summer camp. "You can't imagine what happened," said Sarah, but of course Rebecca could imagine. Being a boy soprano had a shorter shelf life than being a supermodel. She could almost see it as Sarah went on and on, the boy with the pale blue eyes, insensible to the hormones coursing through his body as he stood on the stage at Alice Tully Hall. Apparently his choir director had chosen "Old Man River," sung not in the bass range made famous by Paul Robeson, or in the dialect in which it had been written, but in a high register with crisp consonants. (To be fair to the choir director, he had never ~ Anna Quindlen
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Anna Quindlen
The soprano turned out to sound to me like the right hand on the piano. ~ Steve Lacy
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Steve Lacy
Now, darlin', you know that social etiquette is bred into us Southern girls." "Oh, please. You're as Southern as Tony Soprano." Mama sniffed. "I swear, I should have left you by the side of the road in Wheeling, West Virginia." "You did leave me there. ~ Kristin Hannah
Bayrakdarian Soprano quotes by Kristin Hannah
The song was "I See the Light", another Tangled number. Aaron sang the male part of the duet, and Walter's friend Rose did a less-than-Mina soprano, but mostly the music fell away in the brilliant presence of the two young men on the dance floor. ~ Heidi Cullinan
