Famous quotes containing the words house and/or upper:

    Only in a house where one has learnt to be lonely does one have this solicitude for things. One’s relation to them, the daily seeing or touching, begins to become love, and to lay one open to pain.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    Like many of the Upper Class He liked the Sound of Broken Glass.
    Hilaire Belloc (1870–1953)
