HARVARD SQUARE COMMENTARY

September 29, 2008
Wisdom from Polonius

Noise


A loud noise at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other.

- - Ronald Knox - -


The noise of life begins again,
And ghastly through the drizzling rain
On the bald street breaks the blank day.

- - Alfred Tennyson - -


The filth and noise of the crowded streets soon destroy the
elasticity of health which belongs to the country boy.

- - Rutherford Birchard Hayes - -


Technology is a servant who makes so much noise cleaning up
in the next room that his master cannot make music.

- - Karl Kraus - -


There is something terribly wrong with a culture inebriated by noise and gregariousness.

- - George Steiner - -
