Famous quotes containing the words doors, platform and/or screen:

The light that slants upon our western doors at evening,

Glow-worm glowlight on a grassblade.
O Light Invisible, we worship Thee!”

Let us use what might be instead of what has been as our yardstick!”
—Mary Barnett Gilson (1877?)
“Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.”
