Famous quotes containing the words hall and/or indoor:
“A cell for prayer, a hall for joy,
They treated nature as they would.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“As a man grows older, his ability to sit still and follow indoor occupations increases. He grows vespertinal in his habits as the evening of life approaches, till at last he comes forth only just before sundown, and gets all the walk that he requires in half an hour.”
