Windows

Famous quotes containing the word windows:

    this frenzy,
    like bees stinging the heart all morning,
    will keep the angels
    with their windows open,
    wide as an English bathtub.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The light struggled in through windows of oiled paper, but they read the word of God by it.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    In winter we lead a more inward life. Our hearts are warm and cheery, like cottages under drifts, whose windows and doors are half concealed, but from whose chimneys the smoke cheerfully ascends.... We enjoy now, not an Oriental, but a Boreal leisure, around warm stoves and fireplaces, and watch the shadow of motes in the sunbeams.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
