Famous quotes containing the word chamber:

    Experience is never limited, and it is never complete; it is an immense sensibility, a kind of huge spider-web of the finest silken threads suspended in the chamber of consciousness, and catching every air-borne particle in its tissue.
    Henry James (1843–1916)

    The hotel was once where things coalesced, where you could meet both townspeople and travelers. Not so in a motel. No matter how you build it, the motel remains the haunt of the quick and dirty, where the only locals are Chamber of Commerce boys every fourth Thursday. Who ever heard the returning traveler exclaim over one of the great motels of the world he stayed in? Motels can be big, but never grand.
    William Least Heat Moon [William Trogdon] (b. 1939)

    O birds, your perfect virtues bring,
    Your song, your forms, your rhythmic flight,
    Your manners for your heart’s delight,
    Nestle in hedge, or barn, or roof,
    Here weave your chamber weather-proof,
    Forgive our harms, and condescend
    To man, as to a lubber friend,
    And, generous, teach his awkward race
    Courage, and probity, and grace!
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
