Famous quotes containing the word chamber:

    O birds, your perfect virtues bring,
    Your song, your forms, your rhythmic flight,
    Your manners for your heart’s delight,
    Nestle in hedge, or barn, or roof,
    Here weave your chamber weather-proof,
    Forgive our harms, and condescend
    To man, as to a lubber friend,
    And, generous, teach his awkward race
    Courage, and probity, and grace!
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
