Famous quotes containing the words chamber and/or combustion:

    A snake, with mottles rare,
    Surveyed my chamber floor,
    In feature as the worm before,
    But ringed with power.
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    The night has been unruly. Where we lay,
    Our chimneys were blown down, and, as they say,
    Lamentings heard i’ th’ air, strange screams of death,
    And prophesying with accents terrible
    Of dire combustion and confused events,
    New-hatched to the woeful time.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
