Famous quotes containing the word chamber:

    Hey, you dress up our town very nicely. You don’t look out the Chamber of Commerce is going to list you in their publicity with the local attractions.
    Robert M. Fresco, and Jack Arnold. Dr. Matt Hastings (John Agar)

    But it is the same thing we are all seeing,
    Our world. Go after it,
    Go get it boy, says the man holding the stick.
    Eat, says the hunger, and we plunge blindly in again,
    Into the chamber behind the thought.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    Another day. Deliberations are recessed
    In an iron-blue chamber of that afternoon
    On which we wore things and looked well at
    A slab of business rising behind the stars.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
