Famous quotes containing the words windows and/or home:

    —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)

    You can’t appreciate home till you’ve left it, money till it’s spent, your wife till she’s joined a woman’s club, nor Old Glory till you see it hanging on a broomstick on the shanty of a consul in a foreign town.
    O. Henry [William Sydney Porter] (1862–1910)
