Room

A room is any distinguishable space within a structure. Usually, a room is separated from other spaces or passageways by interior walls; moreover, it is separated from outdoor areas by an exterior wall, sometimes with a door. Historically the use of rooms dates at least to early Minoan cultures about 2200 BC, where excavations on Santorini, Greece at Akrotiri reveal clearly defined rooms within certain structures.

Famous quotes containing the word room:

    Athletes are American princes and the locker room is their castle. Some of them behave in princely fashion, become legitimate heroes to us all. And some are jerks.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    It so happened that, a few weeks later, “Old Ernie” [Ernest Hemingway] himself was using my room in New York as a hide-out from literary columnists and reporters during one of his rare stopover visits between Africa and Key West. On such all-too-rare occasions he lends an air of virility to my dainty apartment which I miss sorely after he has gone and all the furniture has been repaired.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    Haggerty: Girls! Girls! Girls! Be careful of my hats.

    Haggerty: Well, Big Woman, I designed the costumes for the show, not the doors for the theater.
    Dressing Room Matron: I know that. If you had, they’d have been done in lavender.
    James Gleason (1886–1959)
