Famous quotes with Canto

  • El valor es a menudo malinterpretado como la ausencia de miedo, que no lo es. El valor es más bien un dominio total de temor. Que es el valor que le quita el miedo a cometer errores y miedo más profundo al fracaso. El valor nunca es una bestia rugiente como aparece muchas veces - pero en mi opinión, es un maravilloso, tranquilo y pequeño pájaro cantor que susurra en voz baja y suavemente en los oídos: "Que va a hacer de nuevo mañana! Que va a hacer que suceda! ! " durante los momentos más oscuros de la vida, cuando estás solo. Nunca perder ese bello y precioso canto de un pájaro.
    Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
  • Lord Byron, who was writing the third canto of Childe Harold, was the only one among us who put his thoughts upon paper. These, as he brought them successively to us, clothed in all the light and harmony of poetry, seemed to stamp as divine the glories of heaven and earth, whose influences we partook with him.
    Mary Shelley
