Rooms

Famous quotes containing the word rooms:

    By sitting dressed like this, in rooms like these,
    Saying I can’t guess what just fancy, when
    They could be really drinking, or in bed....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    If nations always moved from one set of furnished rooms to another—and always into a better set—things might be easier, but the trouble is that there is no one to prepare the new rooms. The future is worse than the ocean—there is nothing there. It will be what men and circumstances make it.
    Alexander Herzen (1812–1870)

    I see slip to the curb the long machines
    Out of whose warm and windowed rooms pirouette
    Shellacked with silk and light
    The hard legs of our women.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)
