Famous quotes containing the words room and/or control:

    It’s an indulgence to sit in a room and discuss your beliefs as if they were a juicy piece of gossip.
    Lillian Hellman (1907–1984)

    The glance is natural magic. The mysterious communication established across a house between two entire strangers, moves all the springs of wonder. The communication by the glance is in the greatest part not subject to the control of the will. It is the bodily symbol of identity with nature. We look into the eyes to know if this other form is another self, and the eyes will not lie, but make a faithful confession what inhabitant is there.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
