#1. Pardon if all the cleanness and the beauty
Brave rhythym and the immemorial sea
Ensare us sometimes with their siren song,
Forgetful of our murderous intentions.
Through our uneasy peacetime carnival
Cold sweat of death holds us like a dew;
Even this grey machinery of murder
Holds beauty and the promise of a future. - Author: Norman Hampson
Siren Song quotes by Norman Hampson

#7. Sonechka, meanwhile, placid soul that she was - cocooned by the thousand volumes of her reading, lulled by the hazy murmurings of the Greek myths, the hypnotically shrill recorder fluting of the Middle Ages, the misty windswept yearning of Ibsen, the minutely detailed tedium of Balzac, the astral music of Dante, the siren song of the piercing voices of Rilke and Novalis, seduced by the moralistic despair of the great Russian writers calling out to the heart of heaven itself - this placid soul had no awareness that her great moment was at hand. - Author: Lyudmila Ulitskaya
Siren Song quotes by Lyudmila Ulitskaya

Siren Song quotes by Chloe  Benjamin

Siren Song quotes by Mike Duncan

To check his courage and strength
When he hears her song
In his travels through the unknown. - Author: Dejan Stojanovic
Siren Song quotes by Dejan Stojanovic
#12. I always loved all kinds of music. I would watch musicals a lot as a kid, on TV, watch the Fred Astaire movies. I'd watch 'The Wizard of Oz.' I was a big Jerry Lewis fan, and they'd have these big bands and someone singing - some siren, or some guy singing some gorgeous song. I was always enamored of that style of music. - Author: Queen Latifah
Siren Song quotes by Queen Latifah
#13. The music became a siren song. The melody was my lodestone, and I was powerless against its lure. With each step, I savored the dampness of the grass beneath my bare feet. I didn't remember when I'd lost my shoes. - Author: Sarah J. Maas
Siren Song quotes by Sarah J. Maas

Siren Song quotes by John Podhoretz
#16. We must expose to the light of public inquiry those forces which would destroy our country and our way of life. We should pay no attention to the recommendations of men who call the Constitution an eighteenth-century agrarian document-who apologize for capitalism and free enterprise. We should refuse to follow their siren song of increasingly concentrating the powers of government in the chief executive, of delegating American sovereign authority to non-American institutions of the United Nations and pretending that it will bring peace to the world by turning our armed forces over to a United Nations worldwide police force. (Title of Liberty, p. 16.) - Author: Ezra Taft Benson
Siren Song quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#17. If we rebuild our communities and begin to derive more meaning and a sense of the good life from them, many of us are going to be less susceptible to the siren song of mindless consumerism (and while we're at it, we might even spend less time producing and editing our personal brands on social media). - Author: Naomi Klein
Siren Song quotes by Naomi Klein
#18. the siren song/called silence - Author: Steven Erikson
Siren Song quotes by Steven Erikson
#19. I'm still trying to find the words to heal you,
To take your pain and make it all my own
So your beautiful eyes can smile,
So you can be at peace.
And now that Fate has intervened,
Conspired to draw us together,
I can't resist the lure of your eyes,
The temptation of you beauty,
The siren song of you voice
Whispering my name
In the dark comfort between my sheets.
I can't resist you, baby,
Because I'm falling still,
I'm falling into you. - Author: Jasinda Wilder
Siren Song quotes by Jasinda Wilder
#20. According to Crittenden, young women today are deeply unhappy and confused because they ignored the siren song of the new momism and instead followed the really bad advice of their feminist mothers, who allegedly told their girls to forget marriage and motherhood. Instead, feminist mothers supposedly insisted that happiness only comes to those who climb the corporate ladder by impaling men's balls on their Ferragamo heels. (We are both card-carrying members of the feminist axis of evil, and we know of no mothers of twenty- and thirty-something daughters who have said, "Honey, I definitely do not want grandchildren. I want you to get that promotion and work seventy hours a week instead of sixty." Having heeded their feminist mothers' advice, these loser young women have "postponed marriage and childbirth to pursue their careers only to find themselves at thirty-five still single and baby-crazy, with no husband in sight." (No mention of the fact that once you remove the 10 percent of guys who are gay, and the other 30 percent who are snorting wasabi till they puke because they saw it on Jackass, the pickings can be slim.) - Author: Susan J. Douglas
Siren Song quotes by Susan J. Douglas
#21. Listening to the siren song of more, we are deaf to the still small voice waiting in our soul to whisper, 'You're enough. - Author: Julia Cameron
Siren Song quotes by Julia Cameron
#22. Our story ends happily ever after. It has to. We escape Battle Creek, pile into the car, and burn a strip of rubber down the highway. Fly away west, to the promised land. Our rooms will be lit by lava lamps and Christmas lights. Our lives will glow. Consciousness will rise and minds will expand, and beautiful boys in flannel shirts will make snow angels on our floor and write love letters on our ceiling with black polish and red lipstick. We will be their muses, and they will strum their guitars beneath our window, calling to us with a siren song. Come down come away with me. We will lean out of our tower, our hair swinging like Rapunzel's, and laugh, because nothing will carry us away from each other. - Author: Robin Wasserman
Siren Song quotes by Robin Wasserman
#23. I worry that, especially as the Millennium edges nearer, pseudoscience and superstition will seem year by year more tempting, the siren song of unreason more sonorous and attractive. Where have we heard it before? Whenever our ethnic or national prejudices are aroused, in times of scarcity, during challenges to national self-esteem or nerve, when we agonize about our diminished cosmic place and purpose, or when fanaticism is bubbling up around us - then, habits of thought familiar from ages past reach for the controls.
The candle flame gutters. Its little pool of light trembles. Darkness gathers. The demons begin to stir. - Author: Carl Sagan
Siren Song quotes by Carl Sagan
#24. Siren Song

This is the one song everyone
would like to learn: the song
that is irresistible:

the song that forces men
to leap overboard in squadrons
even though they see beached skulls

the song nobody knows
because anyone who had heard it
is dead, and the others can't remember.
Shall I tell you the secret
and if I do, will you get me
out of this bird suit?
I don't enjoy it here
squatting on this island
looking picturesque and mythical
with these two feathery maniacs,
I don't enjoy singing
this trio, fatal and valuable.

I will tell the secret to you,
to you, only to you.
Come closer. This song

is a cry for help: Help me!
Only you, only you can,
you are unique

at last. Alas
it is a boring song
but it works every time. - Author: Margaret Atwood
Siren Song quotes by Margaret Atwood
#25. Love can be such a mysterious muse and seductress ... spinning her magical web of stardust and emotional euphoria.
True love sang her siren song and we wrapped that song around us like the sweetest melody. - Author: Jaeda DeWalt
Siren Song quotes by Jaeda DeWalt
#26. Morrie might have died without ever seeing me again. I had no good excuse for this, except the one that everyone these days seems to have. I had become too wrapped up in the siren song of my own life. I was busy. - Author: Mitch Albom
Siren Song quotes by Mitch Albom
#27. Pseudoscience is almost always recognizable from a distance, and easy to confirm on close examination. Science is, however, not immune from hubris, and bad science can be tougher to spot. Those of us who make a living from science or science media must display scientific integrity. We must constantly test our assumptions and fight the siren song of consensus when our data tells us to be contrarian. We must remain independent of political or religious bias in evaluating our work. We must admit when we are wrong, and remain willing to evolve when verifiable data demands change. We must admit when we are uncertain, remain humble in advances, and offer courageous and independent advice grounded in science. - Author: K. Lee Lerner
Siren Song quotes by K. Lee Lerner
#28. The siren song of redistribution of wealth by centralized government never ceases for those who seek irreversible and unusurpable control over the lives and liberties of private citizens. - Author: Josh Jones
Siren Song quotes by Josh Jones
#29. Closure is a false harmony, a siren song masquerading as a swan song. - Author: Timothy Snyder
Siren Song quotes by Timothy Snyder
#30. There's always a siren, singing you to shipwreck. Some of us may be more susceptible than others are, but there's always a siren. It may be with us all our lives, or it may be many years or decades before we find it or it finds us. But when it does find us, if we're lucky we're Odysseus tied up to the ship's mast, hearing the song with perfect clarity, but ferried to safety by a crew whose ears have been plugged with beeswax. If we're not at all lucky, we're another sort of sailor stepping off the deck to drown in the sea. - Author: Caitlin R. Kiernan
Siren Song quotes by Caitlin R. Kiernan
#31. Fear, as well as the hopeful (if not pointless) solutions offered to combat it, is ultimately what make progressivism so successful. It's what makes otherwise intelligent, rational, and good human beings succumb so easily to obviously absurd visions of the future painted by politicians. It's why our brothers and sisters and our children - and sometimes even you and I - are continually tempted by the progressive siren song. - Author: Glenn Beck
Siren Song quotes by Glenn Beck
#32. I want him to see the flowers in my eyes and hear the songs in my hands. - Author: Francesca Lia Block
Siren Song quotes by Francesca Lia Block
#33. That I am your heart's secret fills me with song. I wish I could sing of you here in my cage. You are my heart's hidden poem. I reread you, memorize you every moment we're apart. - Author: Laura Whitcomb
Siren Song quotes by Laura Whitcomb
#34. I think every time I play, every show is different, and I think that at a certain point a song isn't about you anymore. It's about the audience, it's about how the song has worked its way into other people's lives and that kind of keeps the meaning of the song new, because you see it reflected in other people every night. - Author: Annie E. Clark
Siren Song quotes by Annie E. Clark
#35. While 'Rap Trax!' recorded, Neel found some scrap paper and we started writing our first lyrics. Bandying about subject matter and title, we got stuck on the idea of 'cool', so my first rap song became 'Pretty Cool'. It was a symbol of our confidence. We weren't awesome cool or mega cool. We were only ... pretty cool. - Author: Nikesh Shukla
Siren Song quotes by Nikesh Shukla
#36. Maybe memories are like karaoke - where you realize up on the stage, with all those lyrics scrawling across the screen's bottom, and with everybody clapping at you, that you didn't know even half the lyrics to your all-time favourite song. Only afterwards, when someone else is up on stage humiliating themselves amid the clapping and laughing, do you realize that what you liked most about your favourite song was precisely your ignorance of its full meaning - and you read more into it than maybe existed in the first place. I think it's better to not know the lyrics to your life. - Author: Douglas Coupland
Siren Song quotes by Douglas Coupland
#37. I need all kinds of songs - fast ones, slow ones, minor key, ballads, rumbas - and they all get juggled around during a live show. I've been trying for years to come up with songs that have the feeling of a Shakespearean drama, so I'm always starting with that. - Author: Bob Dylan
Siren Song quotes by Bob Dylan

Siren Song quotes by Jan Karon
#39. 'The Last Five Years' is this quintessential piece, and every song is an actor's song, and every song is incredibly difficult and incredibly powerful and incredibly amazing. It was one of those things in college where, like, you gauged how good you were by how well you were able to pull off a song from 'The Last Five Years.' - Author: Jeremy Jordan
Siren Song quotes by Jeremy Jordan
#40. Memory. All alone in the moonlight I can smile at the old days I was beautiful then. - Author: Trevor Nunn
Siren Song quotes by Trevor Nunn
#41. It was a slow process. You gotta remember I hadn't recorded a song sober in seven years. So it took me awhile to even feel like I could record a song sober. - Author: Eminem
Siren Song quotes by Eminem
#42. The Gedalists were nearly run down by a Dodge truck on which two grand pianos had been loaded: two uniformed officers were playing, in unison, with gravity and commitment, the 1812 Overture of Tchaikowsky, while the driver wove among the wagons with brusque swerves, pressing the siren at full volume, heedless of the pedestrians in his way. - Author: Primo Levi
Siren Song quotes by Primo Levi
#43. Some days, the music is not in tune, but it's always a song worth singing.
That's the best description of a good marriage I've ever heard ... - Author: Nora Roberts
Siren Song quotes by Nora Roberts
#44. I just know of so many musicians who burn out because they go on tour and they have to play their one-hit song over and over and over and over again. And they are not moved by their own song. And then when you go and see them perform there's something off. - Author: Larkin Grimm
Siren Song quotes by Larkin Grimm

Siren Song quotes by Carolyn Brown
#46. Up the street a song cloud floats by, sagging a bit, but still intact. I walk faster and catch up with it just in time to hear the ending, a symphony orchestra, the sound full and resplendent, and it is one of those times, you know those times every so often when you hear the right piece of music at the right time, and it just makes you think. - Author: Charles Yu
Siren Song quotes by Charles Yu
#47. And every day and every night they'd play upon my heart a song / So plaintive and so wild and strange that / all who heard it danced along / And sang and whirled and sank and trod and / skipped and slipped and reeled and rolled - Author: Neil Gaiman
Siren Song quotes by Neil Gaiman
#48. Of course, 'I Will Always Love You' is the biggest song so far in my career. I'm famous for several, but that one has been recorded by more people and made me more money, I think, than all of them. But that song did come from a true and deep place in my heart. - Author: Dolly Parton
Siren Song quotes by Dolly Parton
#49. Concerning the popularity of vampire books:
I don't get it. I think people should read about bloody, heart-singing, mind-searing spirituality.
Live your heart's song, not its drippings.
- Author: Sandy Nathan
Siren Song quotes by Sandy Nathan

Siren Song quotes by Kanye West
#51. I generally prefer to come in to the studio with a fully written song and then work on the arrangement with the band. Sometimes even the arrangements are pretty much already worked out in my head, but other times we experiment. - Author: Adam Schlesinger
Siren Song quotes by Adam Schlesinger
#52. You know, it's a pretty mysterious thing still, why you start the songs you start, and the specific flavor of them, the nature of them. I don't know about other writers, but, for me, it's still somewhat out of my control. It's not really a logical process. - Author: Gillian Welch
Siren Song quotes by Gillian Welch

Siren Song quotes by Dave Grohl

Siren Song quotes by Kim Carnes

Siren Song quotes by Ellie Goulding
#58. Experience is definitely the high road once driven. It actually enhances the songwriting and song sourcing process. - Author: Billy Gibbons
Siren Song quotes by Billy Gibbons
#59. I used to play for 200 people and now I'm selling out places that hold 16,000 people. It's a big change, and it's so cool to see people out there screaming the words to songs that I wrote. It just really reassures me that what I'm doing is working, and it really boosts my confidence, as far as on stage as a performer and a writer. - Author: Miranda Lambert
Siren Song quotes by Miranda Lambert
#60. There is a quaint old theory that man may have two souls - a peripheral one which serves ordinarily, and a central one which is stirred only at certain times, but then with activity and vigour.
While under the domination of the former a man will shave, vote, pay taxes, give money to his family, buy subscription books and comport himself on the average plan.
But let the central soul suddenly become dominant, and he may, in the twinkling of an eye, turn upon the partner of his joys with furious execration; he may change his politics while you could snap your fingers; he may deal out deadly insult to his dearest friend; he may get him, instanter, to a monastery or a dance hall; he may elope, or hang himself - or he may write a song or poem, or kiss his wife unasked, or give his funds to the search of a microbe. Then the peripheral soul will return; and we have our safe, sane citizen again. It is but the revolt of the Ego against Order; and its effect is to shake up the atoms only that they may settle where they belong. - Author: O. Henry
Siren Song quotes by O. Henry
#61. I remember auditioning for record labels and having them tell me, 'Well, the country-radio demographic is the thirty-five-year-old female housewife. Give us a song that relates to the thirty-five-year-old female, and we'll talk.' - Author: Taylor Swift
Siren Song quotes by Taylor Swift

Siren Song quotes by Jim Morrison
#63. What I like doing is writing and recording and much more on the, I guess, the - on that creative level. It's fun interpreting songs and all that, but I wouldn't like it as a living. - Author: David Bowie
Siren Song quotes by David Bowie
#64. I used to wish I could write songs like the others - and I've tried but I just can't. I get the words all right, but whenever I think of a tune and sing it to the others they always say 'Yeah, it always sounds like such a thing' and when they point it out I see what they mean. But I did get a part credit as a composer on one - it was called What Goes On. - Author: Ringo Starr
Siren Song quotes by Ringo Starr
#65. And hear the pleasant cockoo, loud and long - The simple bird that thinks two notes a song. - Author: W.H. Davies
Siren Song quotes by W.H. Davies

Siren Song quotes by Bridgit Mendler
#67. Love me or hate me, i swear it won't make or break me. - Author: Lil' Wayne
Siren Song quotes by Lil' Wayne
#68. I hear pounding feet in the streets below
And the women crying and the children know
That there's something wrong
And it's hard to believe that love will prevail
Oh it won't rain all the time
The sky won't fall forever
And though the night seems long
Your tears won't fall forever - Author: Jane Siberry
Siren Song quotes by Jane Siberry
#69. I can still remember the first time I heard a Beatles song. It was the fall of 1964, my second year in an American school after my family moved back from overseas, and I was standing on the corner of 64th street and First Avenue with my friend Larry Campbell. - Author: Andrew Rosenthal
Siren Song quotes by Andrew Rosenthal
