Famous quotes containing the word houses:

    Nothing will be left white but here a birch,
    And there a clump of houses with a church.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    It breedeth no small offence and scandal to see and consider upon the one part the curiosity and cost bestowed by all sorts of men upon their private houses; and on the other part the unclean and negligent order and spare keeping of the houses of prayer by permitting open decays and ruins of coverings of walls and windows, and by appointing unmeet and unseemly tables with foul cloths for the communion of the sacrament.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)

    The light by which we see in this world comes out from the soul of the observer. Wherever any noble sentiment dwelt, it made the faces and houses around to shine. Nay, the powers of this busy brain are miraculous and illimitable.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
