Sir Thomas Beecham was asked if he had ever conducted any Stockhausen. He said, "No, but I once trod in some."

Karlheinz Stockhausen

Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
And wears manís smudge and shares manís smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

Gerard Manley Hopkins

From Stirling Castle we had seen
The mazy Forth unravelled;
Had trod the banks of Clyde and Tay,
And with the Tweed had travelled;
And when we came to Clovenford,
Then said "my winsome marrow,"
"Whate'er betide, we'll turn aside,
And see the braes of Yarrow."

William Wordsworth

Holloway picked up the crystal cube. "Did you question the children much?"
Paradine said, "Yeah. Scott said there were people in that cube when he first looked. I asked him what was in it now."
"What did he say?" The psychologist's eyes widened.
"He said they were building a place. His exact words. I asked him who ó people? But he couldn't explain."
