Famous quotes containing the word chambers:

    Modern man likes to pretend that his thinking is wide-awake. But this wide-awake thinking has led us into the mazes of a nightmare in which the torture chambers are endlessly repeated in the mirrors of reason.
    Octavio Paz (b. 1914)

    O sleep, O gentle sleep,
    Nature’s soft nurse, how have I frighted thee,
    That thou no more wilt weigh my eyelids down
    And steep my senses in forgetfulness?
    Why rather, sleep, liest thou in smoky cribs,
    Upon uneasy pallets stretching thee,
    And hushed with buzzing night-flies to thy slumber,
    Than in the perfumed chambers of the great,
    Under the canopies of costly state,
    And lulled with sound of sweetest melody?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The price on the wanted
    poster was a-going down, outlaw alias copped my stance
    and moody greenhorns were making me dance; while my mouth’s
    shooting iron got its chambers jammed.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
