Noise Quotes

Quotes about noise

  • “Could we not imagine that noise…is itself nothing more than the sum of a multitude of different sounds which are being heard simultaneously?” ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Dictionnaire de Musique (1767)
  • If a tree falls in a forest, and no-one is around to hear it, does it make a noise?
  • Source unknown, but apparently originating in the twentieth century; a 1910 physics book asks “When a tree falls in a lonely forest, and no animal is near by to hear it, does it make a sound? Why?” Charles Riborg Mann, George Ransom Twiss, Physics (1910), p. 235. See also: If a tree falls in a forest.
  • Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she has laid an asteroid
    o Mark Twain
