Famous quotes containing the word houses:

    The houses are haunted
    By white night-gowns.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    He hung out of the window a long while looking up and down the street. The world’s second metropolis. In the brick houses and the dingy lamplight and the voices of a group of boys kidding and quarreling on the steps of a house opposite, in the regular firm tread of a policeman, he felt a marching like soldiers, like a sidewheeler going up the Hudson under the Palisades, like an election parade, through long streets towards something tall white full of colonnades and stately. Metropolis.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    A new disease? I know not, new or old,
    But it may well be called poor mortals’ plague:
    For, like a pestilence, it doth infect
    The houses of the brain ...
    Till not a thought, or motion, in the mind,
    Be free from the black poison of suspect.
    Ben Jonson (c. 1572–1637)
