Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Rosa Ponselle:

    In the surroundings of an opera performance, once I am deep in it, I am living it. Between the acts and in my dressing room to change costumes, I do not realize I am Rosa Ponselle. I seem instead to be Aida, Gioconda, Norma--the woman I am singing. And when the last curtain falls, I am a rag--but contented.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Líderes efectivos transforman debilidades de sus seguidores en fortalezas, lo que permite a los seguidores para ver e identificar oportunidades en cada amenaza. Los líderes eficaces son no hablar dulce, y que no se conviertan a la organización en un club de campo; pero sin duda elevan la organización por encima del status quo, y esto es importante, ampliar la capacidad de sus seguidores más allá de la norma.

  3. W. H. Auden:

    If music in general is an imitation of history, opera in particular is an imitation of human willfulness; it is rooted in the fact that we not only have feelings but insist upon having them at whatever cost to ourselves. The quality common to all the great operatic roles, e.g., Don Giovanni, Norma, Lucia, Tristan, Isolde, Br?nnhilde, is that each of them is a passionate and willful state of being. In real life they would all be bores, even Don Giovanni.

  4. Andrea Dworkin:

    En esta sociedad, la norma de la masculinidad es la agresión fálica. la sexualidad masculina es, por definición, intensamente y rígidamente fálica. la identidad de un hombre se encuentra en su concepción de sí mismo como el poseedor de un falo; valor de un hombre se encuentra en su orgullo por la identidad fálica. la principal característica de la identidad fálica es que vale la pena es totalmente supeditado a la posesión de un falo. ya que los hombres no tienen otros criterios para la pena, hay otra noción de identidad, los que no tienen falos no se reconocen como plenamente humana.
