Famous quotes containing the word windows:

    In winter we lead a more inward life. Our hearts are warm and cheery, like cottages under drifts, whose windows and doors are half concealed, but from whose chimneys the smoke cheerfully ascends.... We enjoy now, not an Oriental, but a Boreal leisure, around warm stoves and fireplaces, and watch the shadow of motes in the sunbeams.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    But let my due feet never fail
    To walk the studious cloister’s pale,
    And love the high embowed roof,
    With antic pillars massy proof,
    And storied windows richly dight,
    Casting a dim, religious light.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    The light struggled in through windows of oiled paper, but they read the word of God by it.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
