Father of Light! great God of Heaven! Hear'st thou the accents of despair? Can guilt like man's be e'er forgiven? Can vice atone for crimes by prayer. (Quote by - Lord Byron)

No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society. (Quote by - Jeremy Taylor)

Follow your saint, follow with accents sweet; / Haste you, sad notes, fall at her flying feet. (Quote by - Thomas Campion)

There are accents in the eye which are not on the tongue, and more tales come from pale lips than can enter an ear. It is both the grandeur and the pain of the remoter moods that they avoid the pathway of sound. (Quote by - Thomas Hardy)

It's going to be the battle of the accents. I very much look forward to debating him. (Quote by - Arianna Huffington)

Gone! gone forever!--like a rushing wave Another year has burst upon the shore Of earthly being--and its last low tones, Wandering in broken accents in the air, Are dying to an echo. (Quote by - George Denison Prentice)

I miss thee, my mother, when young health has fled. And I sink in the languor of pain, Where, where is the arm that once pillowed my head, And the ear that once heard me complain? Other hands may support me, gentle accents may fall-- For the fond and the true are still mine: I've a blessing for each; I am grateful to all,-- But whose care can be soothing as thine. (Quote by - Eliza Cook)

Be kind to thy father, for when thou were young, who loved thee so fondly as he? He caught the first accents that fell from thy tongue, and joined in thy innocent glee. (Quote by - Margaret Courtney)

I'm in four different films this year, and I have four different accents. I sound different in every film. You have to love a character to play it well, and change in my work is what I want. (Quote by - Robert Carlyle)

It is an old saying, that we forget nothing, as people in fever begin suddenly to talk the language of their infancy; we are stricken by memory sometimes, and old affections rush back on us as vivid as in the time when they were our daily talk, when their presence gladdened our eyes, when their accents thrilled in our ears,--when with passionate tears and grief, we flung ourselves upon their hopeless corpses. Parting is death,--at least, as far as life is concerned. A passion comes to an end; it is carried off in a coffin, or, weeping in a postchaise, it drops out of life one way or the other, and the earth-clods close over it, and we see it no more. But it has been part of our souls, and it is eternal. (Quote by - William Makepeace Thackeray)

When I was a kid we really enjoyed their visits. They were so open and friendly and generous with the hugs, and they spoke with these thick accents. We loved listening to them. (Quote by - Bob Morton)

Commemoration of John Mason Neale, Priest, Poet, 1866 Continuing a short series of verse on Christ: The day of resurrection! Earth, tell it out abroad; The passover of gladness, The passover of God. From death to life eternal, From this world to the sky, Our Christ hath brought us over With hymns of victory. Our hearts be pure from evil, That we may see aright The Lord in rays eternal Of resurrection light, And, list'ning to His accents, May hear, so calm and plain His own All hail! and, hearing, May raise the victor strain. Now let the heav'ns be joyful, Let earth her song begin, Let the round world keep triumph And all that is therein; Invisible and visible, Their notes let all things blend; For Christ the Lord has risen -- Our Joy that has no end. (Quote by - John Of Damascus)

There are words and accents by which this grief can be assuaged, and the disease in a great measure removed. (Quote by - Horace)

One of the big things at the press conference was that people didn't want the accents to end up like 'Fargo,' which they felt were an exaggeration, ... We were all real conscientious of trying to get it right and the person in charge of getting the dialect right was amazing. We tried to be subtle. (Quote by - Woody Harrelson)

The consciousness of being loved softens the keenest pang even at the moment of parting; yea, even the eternal farewell is robbed of half of its bitterness when uttered in accents that breathe love to the last sigh. (Quote by - Joseph Addison)

Now between the meanings of words and their sounds there is ordinarily no discoverable relation except one of accident; and it is therefore miraculous, to the mystic, when words which make sense can also make a uniform objective structure of accents and rhymes. (Quote by - John C. Ransom)

Latinos are very sensitive to different accents. I sort of lost my Mexican accent, and that's what they were looking for in this case some sort of neutral accent that could be understood on both coasts and in different Hispanic communities: Puerto Ricans on the East Coast, Cubans in Fort Lauderdale and Mexican-Americans in Los Angeles. (Quote by - Jorge Ramos)

How many ages hence Shall this our lofty scene be acted over In states unborn and accents yet unknown. (Quote by - William Shakespeare)

Truth! why shall every wretch of letters Dare to speak truth against his betters! Let ragged virtue stand aloof, Nor mutter accents of reproof; Let ragged wit a mute become, When wealth and power would have her dumb. (Quote by - Charles Churchill)

They have fabulous British accents and they are really fun with their British invasion music. (Quote by - Tom White)

I think the silhouette of the kimono costume will become engraved in people's minds. I do think there'll be lots of red accents in the near future. For me personally, I can't see myself flaunting around in a geisha uniform but it'll make me smile when I see what others do with it. (Quote by - Colleen Atwood)

And who in time knows whither we may vent The treasure of our tongue? To what strange shores This gain of our best glory shall be sent, T' enrich unknowing nations with our stores? What worlds in th' yet unformed Occident May come refin'd with th' accents that are ours. (Quote by - Samuel Daniel)

To-day the whole Christian world prostrates itself in adoration around the crib of Bethlehem and rehearses in accents of love a history which precedes all time and will endure throughout eternity. As if by an instinct of our higher, spiritual nature, there well up from the depths of our hearts, emotions which challenge the power of human expression. We seem to be lifted out of the sphere of natural endeavor to put on a new life and to stretch forward in desire to a blessedness which, though not palpable, is eminently real. (Quote by - James Gibbons)

Do not allow the accents in the brass to produce space between the notes. (Quote by - Claude Debussy)

Their accents firm and loud in conversation, Their eyes and gestures eager, sharp and quick Showed them prepared on proper provocation To give the lie, pull noses, stab and kick! And for that very reason it is said They were so very courteous and well-bred. (Quote by - John Hookham Frere)
