Famous quotes containing the word rooms:

    I was a closet pacifier advocate. So were most of my friends. Unknown to our mothers, we owned thirty or forty of those little suckers that were placed strategically around the house so a cry could be silenced in less than thirty seconds. Even though bottles were boiled, rooms disinfected, and germs fought one on one, no one seemed to care where the pacifier had been.
    Erma Bombeck (20th century)

    In soliciting donations from his flock, a preacher may promise eternal life in a celestial city whose streets are paved with gold, and that’s none of the law’s business. But if he promises an annual free stay in a luxury hotel on Earth, he’d better have the rooms available.
    Unknown. Charlotte Observer (October 6, 1989)

    I see slip to the curb the long machines
    Out of whose warm and windowed rooms pirouette
    Shellacked with silk and light
    The hard legs of our women.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)
