Famous quotes containing the word windows:

    And Saints—to windows run—
    To see the little Tippler
    Leaning against the—Sun—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    The frost was on the village roofs as white as ocean foam;
    The good red fires were burning bright in every ‘longshore home;
    The windows sparkled clear, and the chimneys volleyed out;
    And I vow we sniffed the victuals as the vessel went about.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)

    All day long the machine waits: rooms,
    stairs, carpets, furniture, people
    those people who stand at the open windows like objects
    waiting to topple.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
