Alike were they free from Fear, that reigns with the tyrant, and envy, the vice of republics. Neither locks had they to their doors, nor bars to their windows; But their dwellings were open as day and the hearts of their owners; There the richest was poor, and the poorest lived in abundance.
Life, within doors, has few pleasanter prospects than a neatly arranged and well-provisioned breakfast-table.Nathaniel Hawthorne
Home I would go But that my doors are hateful to my eyes, Fill'd and damm'd up with gaping creditors, Watchful as fowlers when their game will spring.thomas otway
He certainly over-heated himself at Venice by walking at a season when it is said that only Dogs and Englishmen are seen out of doors at noon, all else lie down in the middle of the day.charles burney
The person whose doors I enter with most pleasure, and quit with most regret, never did me the smallest favour.william hazlitt
What shall a man say when a friend has vanished behind the doors of Death? A mere tangle of barren words, only words.robert e. howard
Admittedly, I do have several bones... whole war fields full of bones, in fact... to pick with organised religion of whatever stripe. This should be seen as a critique of purely temporal agencies who have, to my mind, erected more obstacles between whatever notion of spirituality and Godhead one subscribes to than they have opened doors. To me, the difference between Godhead and the Church is the difference between Elvis and Colonel Parker... although that conjures images of God dying on the toilet, which is not what I meant at all.alan moore
People stay married because they want to, not because the doors are locked.paul newman
When hopes and dreams are loose in the street, it is well for the timid to lock doors, shutter windows and lie low until the wrath has passed.Eric Hoffer
The irrevocable Hand That opes the year's fair gate, doth ope and shut The portals of our earthly destinies ; We walk through blindfold, and the noiseless doors Close after us, for ever. Pause, my soul , On these strange words for ever whose large sound Breaks flood-like, drowning all the petty noise Our human moans make on the shores of Time . O Thou that openest, and no man shuts; That shut'st, and no man opens Thee we wait!dinah maria mulock
I call on you not to hate, because hate does not leave space for a person to be fair and it makes you blind and closes all doors of thinking.Saddam Hussein
It was as if, at moments, we were perpetually coming into sight of subjects before which we must stop short, turning suddenly out of alleys that we perceived to be blind, closing with a little bang that made us look at each other for, like all bangs, it was something louder than we had intended the doors we had indiscreetly opened.Henry James
Captain or Colonel, or Knight in Arms, Whose chance on these defenceless doors may seize, If ever deed of honour did thee please, Guard them, and him within protect from harms.john milton
A life of love is one of continual growth, where the doors and windows of experience are always open to the wonder and magic that life offers. To love is to risk living fully.Leo Buscaglia
I am pretty conventional , I was raised by a strict mother who said, 'Be sure to open doors and say please thank you and pull up the chair.' So I would take her for a great dinner with good ambience, low lighting, great food and a good bottle of wine. I like to be inquisitive and ask a lot of questions. I am not an ironic dating guy; I don't say, 'Let's go bowling.'Chris pine
The WTO was put in place following the signing of a "technical agreement" negotiated behind closed doors by bureaucrats. Even the heads of country-level delegations to Marrakech in 1994 were not informed regarding the statutes of the WTO, which were drafted in separate clossed sessions by technocrats.
When you live on Cold Mountain long enough the autumns pass quickly When you live alone you have no worries When you leave the doors open no one bothers you The bubbling stream runs forever In the cave a clay pot boils over a fire on the ground A wandering breeze stirs the fragrant pines When hungry I eat one simple meal And lean against the rock in complete harmony
Libraries allow children to ask questions about the world and find the answers. And the wonderful thing is that once a child learns to use a library, the doors to learning are always open.Laura Bush
I know death hath ten thousand several doors For men to take their exits.
It was as if, at moments, we were perpetually coming into sight of subjects before which we must stop short, turning suddenly out of alleys that we perceived to be blind, closing with a little bang that made us look at each other for, like all bangs, it was something louder than we had intended the doors we had indiscreetly opened.
These two sets of triangles are superimposed to show the union of the masculine and feminine aspects of your nature. When united they make the eight lotus petals of the yantra. Four gates or doors called bhupara, surround these triangles representing the gates of the consciousness to the deeper mysteries beyond.
Silence is a door among the doors of wisdom - indeed, silence begets and attracts love, it is the proof of all the beneficiences.
For Wits are treated just like Common Whores ; First they're enjoy'd, and then kickt out of doors.wilmot, john, 2nd earl of rochester
Despite his reputation as one of America's foremost "serious" filmmakers, Oliver Stone's name under the "director" caption does not guarantee a good movie. I learned that lesson while enduring the seemingly-endless tedium of The doors , and was reminded of it during some of the long, drawn-out portions of JFK . However, nothing that Stone has directed or misdirected prepared me for the grotesque mess that is Natural Born Killers .james berardinelli
