Houses

Famous quotes containing the word houses:

    There is the rich quarter, with its houses of pink and white, and
    its crumbling, leafy terraces.
    There is the poorer quarter, its homes a deep blue.
    There is the market, where men are selling hats and swatting flies
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    They shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 12:7.

    Men will say that in supporting their wives, in furnishing them with houses and food and clothes, they are giving the women as much money as they could ever hope to earn by any other profession. I grant it; but between the independent wage-earner and the one who is given his keep for his services is the difference between the free-born and the chattel.
    Elizabeth M. Gilmer (1861–1951)
