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.
From the windows of my office in Boston ... I can see the Golden Stairs from Boston Harbor where all eight of my great-grandparents set foot on this great land for the first time. That immigrant spirit of limitless possibility animates America even today.Edward ("Ted") Kennedy
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.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The walls of spiders' legs are made, Well mortised and finely laid; He was the master of his trade It curiously builded; The windows of the eyes of cats, And for the roof, instead of slats, Is covered with the skins of bats, With moonshine that are gilded.Michael Drayton
We cannot keep thieves from looking in at our windows, but we need not give them entertainment with open doors.thomas adam
No human eye can isolate the unhappy coincidence of line and place which suggests evil in the face of a house, and yet somehow a maniac juxtaposition, a badly turned angle, some chance meeting of roof and sky, turned Hill House into a place of despair, more frightening because the face of Hill House seemed awake, with a watchfulness from the blank windows and a touch of glee in the eyebrow of a cornice.shirley jackson
And storied windows richly dight, Casting a dim religious light. There let the pealing organ blow, To the full-voiced choir below, In service high, and anthems clear As may, with sweetness, through mine ear Dissolve me into ecstasies, And bring all heaven before mine eyes.john milton
You cannot rob me of free nature's grace, You cannot shut the windows of the sky Through which Aurora shows her brightening face.james thomson
If God lived on earth, people would break his windows.
Is not a diamond that flashes all its colours into the heart of a poet as useful as the diamond with which the glazier divides the sheet of glass into panes of our windows ?
A new glass age has begun, which is equal in beauty to the old one of Gothic windows.
Such a morning it is when love leans through geranium windows and calls with a cockerel's tongue.Laurie Lee
Had another dream about the lions at the doorThey were not half as frightening as they were beforeBut I'm thinking about eternitySome kind'a ecstasy's got a hold on meWalls, windows, trees, waves coming throughYou be in me I'll be in youTogether in eternitySome kind'a ecstasy's got a hold on meUp among the firs where it smells so sweetOr down in the valley were the river used to beI got my mind on eternitySome kind'a ecstasy's got a hold on me, and I'mWondering where the lions are and I'mWondering where the lions are...bruce cockburn
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.elisabeth kübler-ross
There comes a time in a man's life when to get where he has to – if there are no doors or windows – he walks through a wall.Bernard Malamud
When the priest went in, he stopped short at the sight of this defamation of God's holy place, and dared not serve the requiem on such a spot. And so the church was left forever, with monsters stuck in the doors and windows, was overgrown with forest trees, roots, rough grass and wild thorns, and no one can now find the way to it.nikolai vasilievich gogol
Apollo at Delphi, through the oracular utterance of his priestess, pronounced Socrates the wisest of men. Of him it is related that he said with sagacity and great learning that the human breast should have been furnished with open windows, so that men might not keep their feelings concealed, but have them open to the view. Oh that nature, following his idea, had constructed them thus unfolded and obvious to the view.vitruvius
Have you wondered why all the windows in heaven were broken? Have you seen the homeless in the grave of God's hand? Do you want to acquaint the larks with the fatuous music of war?
The windows of my soul I throw Wide open to the sun.john greenleaf whittier
If you are not ready, and did not know what to do, it could hurt you in different ways. It could knock you down, hard, or throw you against a tree or a wall. It is such a big explosion, it can smash in buildings and knock signboards over, and break windows all over town, but if you duck and cover, like Bert [the Turtle], you will be much safer.
I quite fixedly believe the Wardens of Earth sometimes unbar strange windows, that face on other worlds than ours. And some of us, I think, once in a while get a peep through these windows. But we are not permitted to get a long peep, or an unobstructed peep, nor very certainly, are we permitted to see all there is out yonder.
[...] the only thing I'd rather own than [Microsoft] windows is English or Chinese or Spanish, because then I could charge a $249 right to speak English. And I could charge you an upgrade fee when I add new letters like N and T.scott mcnealy
They don't make poles long enough for me want to touch Microsoft products, and I don't want any mass-marketed game-playing device or windows appliance near my desk or on my network. This is my workbench, dammit, it's not a pretty box to impress people with graphics and sounds. When I work at this system up to 12 hours a day, I'm profoundly uninterested in what user interface a novice user would prefer.erik naggum
And besides, if Perl really takes off in the windows space, I think the rest of us would just as soon have a double-agent within ActiveState.larry wall
