Famous quotes containing the word windows:

    —and then it was
    There interposed a Fly—

    With Blue—uncertain stumbling Buzz—
    Between the light—and me—
    And then the Windows failed—and then
    I could not see to see—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    “Try speaking. Say ‘Hello!’”
    “Hello. Hello.”
    “What do you hear?”
    “I hear an empty room—
    You know it sounds that way. And yes, I hear
    I think I hear a clock and windows rattling....”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I came on a great house in the middle of the night
    Its open lighted doorway and its windows all alight,
    And all my friends were there and made me welcome too;
    But I woke in an old ruin that the winds howled through;
    And when I pay attention I must out and walk
    Among the dogs and horses that understand my talk.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
