Knowledge is soon changed, then lost in the mist, an echo half-heard. (Gene Wolfe, writer)Music is the harmonious voice of creation; an echo of the invisible world. (Giuseppe Mazzini, activist)
Fame is the echo of actions, resounding them to the world, save that the echo repeats only the last art, but fame relates all, and often more than all. (Thomas Fuller, clergyman)If you’re in a forest, the quality of the echo is very strange because echoes back off so many surfaces of all those trees that you get this strange, itchy ricochet effect. (Brian Eno, musician)
