Windows

Famous quotes containing the word windows:

    But let my due feet never fail
    To walk the studious cloister’s pale,
    And love the high embowed roof,
    With antic pillars massy proof,
    And storied windows richly dight,
    Casting a dim, religious light.
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    “Try speaking. Say ‘Hello!’”
    “Hello. Hello.”
    “What do you hear?”
    “I hear an empty room—
    You know it sounds that way. And yes, I hear
    I think I hear a clock and windows rattling....”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    All day long the machine waits: rooms,
    stairs, carpets, furniture, people
    those people who stand at the open windows like objects
    waiting to topple.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
