House Built

Famous quotes containing the words house and/or built:

    The welcome house of him my dearest guest.
    Where ever, ever stay, and go not thence,
    Till natures sad decree shall call thee hence;
    Flesh of thy flesh, bone of thy bone,
    I here, thou there, yet both but one.
    Anne Bradstreet (c. 1612–1672)

    Many are concerned about the monuments of the West and the East,—to know who built them. For my part, I should like to know who in those days did not build them,—who were above such trifling.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
