Freebase

  1. Suite

    In music, a suite is an ordered set of instrumental or orchestral pieces normally performed in a concert setting rather than as accompaniment; they may be extracts from a ballet, incidental music to a play, opera, film or video game, or they may be entirely original movements. In the Baroque era the suite was more precisely defined, with the pieces unified by key, and consisting of dances usually preceded by a prelude or overture. The suite was also known as Suite de danses, Ordre or Partita. In the eighteenth century, the term ouverture or overture may refer to the entire suite, as it does with the orchestral suites of J.S. Bach.

Chambers 20th Century Dictionary

  1. Suite

    swēt, n. a train of followers or attendants: a regular set, particularly of rooms: a series of dances arranged for instruments in the same or relative keys, and usually preceded by a prelude: a sequel. [Fr. Cf. Suit.]

  2. Chelsea Handler:

    …He tried to Cosby me, oh, I was in Atlantic City playing, doing stand-up, and he was doing stand-up in Atlantic City in the same hotel, and at like three o’clock in the afternoon, someone from the hotel came down and said, ‘Oh, you know, Mr. Cosby would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite.’ And I thought, ‘That’s really weird.’ This was like ten years ago. And I said, ‘That’s really weird. I don’t want to go alone.’ I go, I don’t know him. So the three guys I was with—thank God these guys were with me. One was filming and one was like a producer; we were filming something— I brought them up with me to his room and thank God I did, because now I know what would’ve happened if I went up there alone. And I forgot about it when all the stories about Bill Cosby came out. I was like, I didn’t even think of it. Then my friend texted me the other day saying, ‘Do you remember that night we went up to, or that afternoon we went up to Bill Cosby’s and you were so freaked out you made us come with you?’ And I said, ‘Yeah,’ and he said, ‘Hello! You could’ve been one of his victims if we weren’t there.’ And I went, ‘Oh my gosh . . .’ Yeah, so yeah, he’s guilty… I think it’s pretty obvious now.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Sérendipité communique avec les esprits préparés, à mon avis, ce qui conduit souvent à des créations et inventions miraculeuses. Sérendipité va danser avec vous si vous êtes déjà sur la piste de danse. Vous ne devez pas attendre que cela se produise si vous êtes parmi les nombreux spectateurs qui sont simplement en regardant les autres danser. Donc obtenir sur la piste de danse tout de suite, et avoir une bonne danse avec sérendipité lorsque votre moment arrive. - Deo.
