Famous quotes containing the word chamber:

    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)

    The fate of the country does not depend on how you vote at the polls,—the worst man is as strong as the best at that game; it does not depend on what kind of paper you drop into the ballot- box once a year, but on what kind of a man you drop from your chamber into the street every morning.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    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)
