Countries that have soldiers in charge seem, more often than not, to be the ones where democracy is but a flickering candle sitting in an open window with a forecast of rain.
I felt like a moth hanging on the window pane.
We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call; no way out, just the upstairs window to lookout of while the fire burns the house down with us trapped, locked in it.
The Bible is a window in this prison-world, through which we may look into eternity.dwight, timothy, iv
[In casual conversation] The reason why I feel relatively indifferent to [the Anglican Church of England] is it's lost its power, and it's so desperately keen to solicit support that they're willing to throw God out of the window in order to retain it. God for the many of the Anglicans is nothing more than a sort of awkward geriatric relative, kept upstairs, who might be embarrassingly coming downstairs, incontinently, and cause trouble.jonathan miller
Books serve us simply by opening a window on all we wanted to say and feel and think about. We may not even notice that they have not said it themselves till we go back to them years later and do not find what we loved in them. You cannot keep the view by taking the window with you.james richardson
I don’t know what’s meant by Know thyself, which seems to ask a window to look at a window.james richardson
Well, I flung the window open an' I shouted, "Yes, that's right Millandra – I'm goin' to Greece for the sex; sex for breakfast, sex for dinner, sex for tea, an’ sex for supper." Well, she just ignored me but this little cab driver leans out an' pipes up, "That sounds like a marvellous diet, love." "It is," I shouted back, "have y' never heard of it? It's called the 'F' Plan."willy russell
With their tinted windows up, the cars of the rich go like dark eggs down the roads of Delhi. Every now and then an egg will crack open a woman’s hand, dazzling with gold bangles, stretches out an open window, flings an empty mineral water bottle onto the road and then the window goes up, and the egg is resealed.aravind adiga
I seem to have always one little window looking but into life.Emma Lazarus
And thus He mused: "From here, indeed Shall we strike terror in the Swede? And here a city by our labor Founded, shall gall our haughty neighbor; "Here cut" - so Nature gives command - Your window through on Europe; stand Firm-footed by the sea, unchanging!aleksandr pushkin
The trick is to maintain a kind of naïve amazement at each instant of experience but, as Montaigne learned, one of the best techniques for doing this is to write about everything. Simply describing an object on your table, or the view from your window, opens your eyes to how marvelous such ordinary things are. To look inside yourself is to open up an even more fantastical realm.
Under this window in stormy weather, I marry this man and woman together. Let none but Him who rules the thunder, put this man and woman asunder.jonathan swift
An hour before the worshipp'd sun Peer'd from the golden window of the east.william shakespeare
He is outside of everything, and an alien everywhere. He is an aesthetic solitary. His beautiful, light imagination is the wing that on the autumn evening just brushes the dusky window.
The thief left it behind: the moon at my window.
Who says you cannot hold the moon in your hand? Tonight when the stars come out and the moon rises in the velvet sky, look outside you window, then raise you hand and position your fingers around the disk of light. There you go... That was easy!Vena Nazarian
Please leave the window open.
