Famous quotes containing the words storage and/or heat:

    Many of our houses, both public and private, with their almost innumerable apartments, their huge halls and their cellars for the storage of wines and other munitions of peace, appear to me extravagantly large for their inhabitants. They are so vast and magnificent that the latter seem to be only vermin which infest them.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Friendship is evanescent in every man’s experience, and remembered like heat lightning in past summers.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
