Safe Houses

Famous quotes containing the words safe and/or houses:

    That a famous library has been cursed by a woman is a matter of complete indifference to a famous library. Venerable and calm, with all its treasures safe locked within its breast, it sleeps complacently and will, so far as I am concerned, so sleep forever. Never will I wake these echoes, never will I ask for that hospitality again ...
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    Safe upon the solid rock the ugly houses stand:
    Come and see my shining palaces built upon the sand.
    Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)
