What is kitchen range?

Famous quotes containing the words range and/or kitchen:

    As to spelling the very frequent word though with six letters instead of two, it is impossible to discuss it, as it is outside the range of common sanity. In comparison such a monstrosity as phlegm for flem is merely disgusting.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)

    I, too, sing America.
    I am the darker brother.
    They send me to eat in the kitchen when company comes.
    But I laugh,
    And eat well,
    And grow strong.
    Langston Hughes (1902–1967)
