Windows

Famous quotes containing the word windows:

    The frost was on the village roofs as white as ocean foam;
    The good red fires were burning bright in every ‘longshore home;
    The windows sparkled clear, and the chimneys volleyed out;
    And I vow we sniffed the victuals as the vessel went about.
    Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)

    —and then it was
    There interposed a Fly—

    With Blue—uncertain stumbling Buzz—
    Between the light—and me—
    And then the Windows failed—and then
    I could not see to see—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

    The windows were then closed and the steam turned on. There was a sign up saying that no one could smoke, but you couldn’t help it. You were lucky if you didn’t burst into flames.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
