"Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it
is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of
course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want
to escape from these things." ~T. S. Eliot
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you
did, but people will NEVER forget how you make them feel ~ Maya Angelou
I've always been drawn to things that display class, glamour, and beauty

Libiamo Ne' Lieti Calici
Domingo, Carreras And Pavarotti in the Three Tenors concert 1994
Libiamo ne'lieti calici (Drinking Song) is the most famous duet from Verdi's La traviata, perhaps one of the most well known fragments of opera around the world, and an obligatory performance (as is this opera itself) for any great tenor. The song is categorised as a Brindisi, which encourages alcoholic drinking. Those who have performed it include Luciano Pavarotti, Giuseppe di Stefano, Plácido Domingo, José Carreras, Enrico Caruso, and many others. The words were written by Francesco Maria Piave.
If you would like to see the words to the song they are here
I got a couple of giggles out of this and to see 3 men with such a passion for music art, it shows that people come in all kind of packages..
