„Shh," he said. "Look."
"Can't you see'um?" he whispered. "All the Terabithians standing on tiptoe to see you."
"Shh, yes. There's a rumor going around that the beautiful girl arrving today might be the queen they've been waiting for.“

„Then as he sang
it was no longer sounds only that made the music:
he spoke, and as no tree listens I listened“
— Denise Levertov Poet 1923 - 1997
Context: Then as he sang it was no longer sounds only that made the music: he spoke, and as no tree listens I listened, and language came into my roots out of the earth, into my bark out of the air, into the pores of my greenest shoots gently as dew and there was no word he sang but I knew its meaning.
„Listen. Listening is one of those dynamics that sounds like the easiest thing in the world to do, but in reality is one of the hardest.“

„I love when I reach Marcus on the phone and as he says hello, I can hear the music he's listening to in the background. That music is the sound of him without me. How he surrounds himself when I'm not there, which is almost all the time.“
— Megan McCafferty, Charmed Thirds
„The listener isn't aware that they are new notes, but the sound is pleasing to the ear. I change the key, and somehow it's fresh because you haven't heard those notes before.“
— Paul Simon American musician, songwriter and producer 1941
Context: I didn't want to repeat the same notes in the second verse that I used in the first, so I wrote out all the notes of the song and all the notes that were missing in the scale, given that there are twelve notes from octave to octave. All those notes that weren't in the scale were the ones I wanted in for the next verse. The listener isn't aware that they are new notes, but the sound is pleasing to the ear. I change the key, and somehow it's fresh because you haven't heard those notes before. As quoted in "Paul Simon's Workshop at the Guitar Study Center" by Richard Albero and Fred Styles in Guitar Player (April 1975), p. 21
„Whenever you look, God is there. But is He a rock or a stone or a sun or a moon or a bone? No. His sound is there and His warnings are there. You can see Him. You can see His sound, His words, His speech. You can listen to the commandments given to the prophets, because they have not gone away. They are within us.“
— Bawa Muhaiyaddeen Sri Lankan Sufi leader 1900 - 1986
„That little, small voice in your mind and in your heart that makes you curious about being vegan is something you should listen to, because that’s the sound of your conscience making you be compassionate.“
