Locked Door quotes by Meredith Duran
#1. No matter how far they traveled, they always had this house to welcome them home." "True. Did you ever wonder why they altered it so often?" "Miss Everleigh says they were innovators. Visionaries." He glanced at her, the firelight shadowing his face. "They kept knocking down the walls. Expanding them, making new routes for egress. Not much innovation in that. As visions go, it's the dream of claustrophobics." The notion unsettled her. "What do you mean to say?" "I mean, they traveled to escape this place." He reached for the bottle, splashed more liquor into his glass. Set down the bottle and stared at it. "Came back very reluctantly, already itching to leave again." She did not like that idea. "It was their home. They were a famously loving family - " "It's a house," he said. "That doesn't make it a home. And family - yes, family is important. But it can trap you more neatly than four walls and a locked door." Her #Quote by Meredith Duran
Locked Door quotes by Stephen Dobyns
#2. Theseus Within the Labyrinth pt.2

But nobody like Theseus likes a smart girl, always
telling him to dress warmly and eat plenty of fiber.
She was one of those people who are never in doubt.
Had he sharpened his sword, tied his sandals?
Without her, of course, he would have never escaped
the labyrinth. Why hadn't he thought of that trick
with the ball of yarn? But as he looked down
at her sleeping form, this woman who was already
carrying his child, maybe he thought of their
future together, how she would correctly foretell
the mystery or banality behind each locked door.
So probably he shook his head and said, Give me
a dumb girl any day, and crept back to his ship
and sailed away. Of course Ariadne was revenged.
She would have told him to change the sails,
to take down the black ones, put up the white.
She would have reminded him that his father,
the king of Athens, was waiting on a high cliff
scanning the Aegean for Theseus's returning ship,
white for victory, black for defeat. She would
have said how his father would see the black sails,
how the grief for the supposed death of his one son
would destroy him. But Theseus and his men had
brought out the wine and were cruising a calm sea
in a small boat filled to the brim with ex-virgins.
Who could have blamed him? Until he heard the distant
scream and his head shot up to see the black sa #Quote by Stephen Dobyns
Locked Door quotes by Jarod Kintz
#3. The locked door in my house is just a diversion. The real valuable items are out in the open, where they are hidden from the unimaginative. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Locked Door quotes by Richard Price
#4. York. Self-conscious about his own corrupted dimensions, he pushed himself away from the table and trotted across the traffic to the store. He almost sprained his wrist pushing on the locked door, then jumped a little at the delayed buzz of electronic permission. To Bind an Egg was about the size of #Quote by Richard Price
Locked Door quotes by Rose George
#5. What they have done in Japan, which I find so inspirational, is they've brought the toilet out from behind the locked door. They've made it conversational. People go out and upgrade their toilet. They talk about it. They've sanitized it. #Quote by Rose George
Locked Door quotes by Julian Barnes
#6. I remember, in no particular order:
- a shiny inner wrist;
- steam rising from a wet sink as a hot frying pan is laughingly tossed into it;
- gouts of sperm circling a plughole, before being sluiced down the full length of a tall house;
- a river rushing nonsensically upstream, its wave and wash lit by half a dozen chasing torchbeams;
- another river, broad and grey, the direction of its flow disguised by a stiff wind exciting the surface;
- bathwater long gone cold behind a locked door.
This last isn't something I actually saw, but what you end up remembering isn't always the same as what you have witnessed.

We live in time - it holds us and moulds us - but I've never felt I understood it very well. And I'm not referring to theories about how it bends and doubles back, or may exist elsewhere in parallel versions. No, I mean ordinary, everyday time, which clocks and watches assure us passes regularly: tick-tock, click-clock. Is there anything more plausible than a second hand? And yet it takes only the smallest pleasure or pain to teach us time's malleability. Some emotions speed it up, others slow it down; occasionally, it seems to go missing - until the eventual point when it really does go missing, never to return.

I'm not very interested in my schooldays, and don't feel any nostalgia for them. But school is where it all began, so I need to return briefly to a few incidents that have grown into anecdotes, to so #Quote by Julian Barnes
Locked Door quotes by Daniel O'Malley
#7. Not that a locked door made a difference to me, since we'd all been rigorously trained in "the ladylike arts of breaking and entering, #Quote by Daniel O'Malley
Locked Door quotes by T.H. White
#8. My father always used to tell one of his dreams, because it somehow seemed of a piece with what was to follow. He believed that it was a consequence of the thing's presence in the next room. My father dreamed of blood.
It was the vividness of the dreams that was impressive, their minute detail and horrible reality. The blood came through the keyhole of a locked door which communicated with the next room. I suppose the two rooms had originally been designed en suite. It ran down the door panel with a viscous ripple, like the artificial one created in the conduit of Trumpingdon Street. But it was heavy, and smelled. The slow welling of it sopped the carpet and reached the bed. It was warm and sticky. My father woke up with the impression that it was all over his hands. He was rubbing his first two fingers together, trying to rid them of the greasy adhesion where the fingers joined." ("The Troll") #Quote by T.H. White
Locked Door quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#9. I wanted to get inside so badly I could taste it. It probably shows a perverse element of my personality that even though I was finally inside the Archives, surrounded by endless secrets, that I was drawn to the one locked door I had found. Perhaps it is human nature to seek out hidden things. Perhaps it is simply my nature. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Locked Door quotes by Mark Haddon
#10. How often did he feel it now, this gorgeous, furtive seclusion? In the bath sometimes, maybe. Though Jean failed to understand his need for periodic isolation and regularly dragged him back to earth mid-soak by hammering on the locked door in search of bleach or dental floss. #Quote by Mark Haddon
Locked Door quotes by Jane Yolen
#11. Aren't hidden doors the most alluring? The old stories point that out surely. Even the greatest heroes and heroines fall under the spell of a locked door. #Quote by Jane Yolen
Locked Door quotes by Marianne Williamson
#12. Imagine any problem you have to be a huge, locked door standing in front of you. Now see yourself taking a golden key out of your pocket. You brought the key here with you when you arrived on this planet, but you sometimes forget to use it. See yourself putting it into the keyhole, then watch the door swing open. On the key are inscribed these words, "Unconditional Love." #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Locked Door quotes by C.S. Lewis
#13. Lord, are these your real terms? Can I meet H. again only if I learn to love you some much that I don't care whether I meet her or not? Consider, Lord, how it looks to us. What would anyone think of me if I said to the boys, 'No toffee now. But when you've grown up and don't really want toffee you shall have as much of it as you choose'?

If I knew that to be eternally divided from H. and eternally forgotten by her would add a greater joy and splendour to her being, of course I'd say 'Fire ahead.' Just as if, on earth, I could have cured her cancer by never seeing her again, I'd have arranged never to see her again. I'd have had to. Any decent person would. But that's quite different. That's not the situation I'm in.

When I lay these questions before God I get no answer. But a rather special sort of 'No answer.' It is not the locked door. It is more like a silent, certainly not uncompassionate, gaze. As though He shook His head not in refusal but waiving the question. Like, 'Peace, child; you don't understand.'

Can a mortal ask questions which God finds unanswerable? Quite easily, I should think. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Locked Door quotes by M.K. Schiller
#14. It doesn't matter if you're behind a locked door under the covers or walking around in the middle of the night. If something's gonna get you, it'll get you no matter what. #Quote by M.K. Schiller
Locked Door quotes by Peternelle Van Arsdale
#15. Every day she felt like a monster walking among the innocent, felt as if she were trapped on the other side of a locked door #Quote by Peternelle Van Arsdale
Locked Door quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#16. Sometimes we're better off if the mind behind the locked door makes our decisions for us #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Locked Door quotes by Amy Astorga
#17. A locked door was suddenly opened in the back of my mind and a barrage of demented clowns came rushing out. #Quote by Amy Astorga
Locked Door quotes by Cynthia Hand
#18. I'm afraid the Le Livre de l'esprit errance is quite impossible to obtain, mon chéri." Mrs. Rochester dropped her eyes. "He keeps it locked in a room guarded by a three-headed dog, which drops into a pit of strangling vines, followed by a life-or-death life-size game of chess, which opens into a room with a locked door and a hundred keys on wings, and then there's a mirror ..."
Branwell gasped. "That's horrible! That poor three-headed dog!"
"I bet he just keeps it in his desk," Alexander said. "Are you sure that obstacle course of death isn't something else?"
Mrs. Rochester tilted her head. "Oh, I think you're right. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Locked Door quotes by Etgar Keret
#19. Quanta.

On Yom Kippur Eve, the quanta went to ask Einstein for his forgiveness. "I'm not home," Einstein yelled at them from behind his locked door. On their way back, people swore loudly at them through the windows, and someone even threw a can. The quanta pretended not to care, but deep in their hearts they were really hurt. Nobody understands the quanta, everybody hates them.
"You parasites," people would shout at them as they walked down the road.
"Go serve in the army."
"We wanted to, actually," the quanta would try to explain, "but the army wouldn't take us because we're so tiny." Not that anyone listened. Nobody listens to the quanta when they try to defend themselves, but when they say something that can be interpreted negatively, well, then everyone's all ears. The quanta can make the most innocent statement, like "Look, there's a cat!" and right away they're saying on the news how the quanta were stirring up trouble and they rush off to interview Schrödinger. All in all, the media hated the quanta worse than anybody, because once the quanta had spoken at an IBM press conference about how the very act of viewing had an effect on an event, and all the journalists thought the quanta were lobbying to keep them from covering the Intifada. The quanta could insist as much as they wanted that this wasn't at all what they meant and that they had no political agenda whatsoever, but nobody would believe them anyway. Everyone knew they were friends of #Quote by Etgar Keret
Locked Door quotes by Mihail Sebastian
#20. I have always believed it my right to have a locked door between me and the world, and to hold the key myself. Now look at it, kicked open. The doors are off their hinges, the portals unguarded, every cover blown. #Quote by Mihail Sebastian
Locked Door quotes by Rachel Caine
#21. You're not touching us,'" Eve said, and raised her voice. "Shane! Shane, get your ass up here now!'"
There was a touch of panic in her voice, although she was putting on a good front. Her hands were shaking where they gripped the hockey stick.
The man glided around the end of the bed, prowling like a cat. Six feet tall, at least, and as broad as two of Eve, maybe bigger. His bare arms were ripped with muscle. His blue eyes looked shallow and hungry.
Claire heard the thump of footsteps outside, and then a bang as Shane fetched up against the locked door. He rattled the knob and pounded hard. "Eve! Eve, open up!'"
"She's busy!'" the biker yelled, and laughed. "Oh yeah, gonna be real busy.'"
"No!'" Shane screamed it, and the door shook with the strength of the blows he put into it. "Stay away from them! #Quote by Rachel Caine
Locked Door quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#22. If she were a writer she would collect her pencils and notebooks and favourite cat and write in bed. Strangers and lovers would never get past the locked door. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Locked Door quotes by Debasish Mridha
#23. Kindness is the best key to open the locked door of every heart. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Locked Door quotes by Lucy Frank
#24. Anyone who thinks heaven is not hot water behind a locked door has forgotten what it means to live. #Quote by Lucy Frank
Locked Door quotes by Ian MacKaye
#25. An unlocked door means that, occasionally, you might get a devil come in, but a locked door means you have thousands of angels just walk by. #Quote by Ian MacKaye
Locked Door quotes by Charlotte Joko Beck
#26. I struggle with my life because instead of just doing what needs to be done, I fight the underlying fear; I try to unlock the door. Paradoxically, the only way to unlock the door is to forget the door.
Instead of obsessing about the locked door, we need to be going about our lives, which means cleaning up the house, taking care of the baby, going to work, whatever. #Quote by Charlotte Joko Beck
Locked Door quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#27. Even when a prohibition in a fairy-story is guessed to be derived from some taboo once practised long ago, it has probably been preserved in the later stages of the tale's history because of the great mythical significance of prohibition. A sense of significance may indeed have lain behind some of the taboos themselves. Thou shalt not - or else thou shalt depart beggared into endless regret. The gentlest 'nursery-tales' know it. Even Peter Rabbit was forbidden a garden, lost his blue coat, and took sick. The Locked Door stands as an eternal Temptation. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Locked Door quotes by Lauren Oliver
#28. Perfect. There's the word again: a locked-door word – stifling, strangling. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Locked Door quotes by Tony Hoagland
#29. I know there are some people out there
who think I am supposed to end up
in a room by myself

with a gun and a bottle full of hate,
a locked door and my slack mouth open
like a disconnected phone.

But I hate those people back
from the core of my donkey soul
and the hatred makes me strong
and my survival is their failure,

and my happiness would kill them
so I shove joy like a knife
into my own heart over and over

and I force myself toward pleasure,
and I love this November life
where I run like a train
deeper and deeper
into the land of my enemies. #Quote by Tony Hoagland
Locked Door quotes by Terry Pratchett
#30. And he'd do nothing for ten minutes but look at the lock, and then he'd select a piece of bent metal from a ring of several hundred almost identical pieces, and under an hour later he'd be walking away with a neat ten percent of the takings. Of course, you didn't have to use Mr. Brown's services. You could always opt to spend the rest of your life looking at a locked door #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Locked Door quotes by C.S. Lewis
#31. When I lay these questions before God I get no answer. But a rather special sort of 'No answer.' It is not the locked door. It is more like a silent, certainly not uncompassionate, gaze. As though He shook His head not in refusal but waiving the question. Like, 'Peace, child; you don't understand. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Locked Door quotes by Embee
#32. You underestimate us, Josephine," Taylor smiled. "A few guards, chains, and a locked door can't keep a family apart. #Quote by Embee
Locked Door quotes by Tricia Owens
#33. Now do you understand why I'm interested in you? You're a locked door, sweetheart. You give no one a key and you never answer the door when anyone knocks ... Ah, but sometimes, sometimes I get a peek through the keyhole and what I find there ... It's like glimpsing you as you're stripping. Underneath all of that darkness is something hungry, something desperate, something, oh, so deliciously vulnerable. #Quote by Tricia Owens
Locked Door quotes by Nellie L. McClung
#34. Prohibition is a hard sounding word, worthless as a rallying cry, hard as a locked door or going to bed without your supper. #Quote by Nellie L. McClung
Locked Door quotes by Candice Olson
#35. Ask any teenage girl to describe her perfect bedroom, and you'll get answers like 'a room with a private phone line, a place to hang out with friends, and for it to be way-cool and funky.' Ask parents the same question, and 'a locked door that opens on their 21st birthday' might top the list! #Quote by Candice Olson
Locked Door quotes by Marianne Williamson
#36. Most of us feel on some level like race horses chomping at the bit, pressing at the gate, hoping and praying for someone to open the door and let us run out. We feel so much pent up energy, so much locked up talent. We know in our hearts that we were born to do great things, and we have a deep-seated dread of wasting our lives. But the only person who can free us is ourselves. Most of us know that. We realize that the locked door is our own fear. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Locked Door quotes by Anthony Doerr
#37. Eventually they climb sixteen steps into the Gallery of Mineralogy. The guide shows them a gate from Brazil and violet amethysts and a meteorite on a pedestal that he claims is as ancient as the solar system itself. Then he leads them single file down two twisting staircases and along several corridors and stops outside an iron door with a single keyhole. "End of tour," he says.

A girl says, "But what's through there?"

"Behind this door is another locked door, slightly smaller."

"And what's behind that?"

"A third locked door, smaller yet."

"What's behind that?"

"A fourth door, and a fifth, on and on until you reach a thirteenth, a little locked door no bigger than a shoe."

The children lean forward. "And then?"

"Behind the thirteenth door" - the guide flourishes one of his impossibly wrinkled hands - "is the Sea of Flames."

Puzzlement. Fidgeting. "Come now. You've never heard of the Sea of Flames?"

The children shake their heads. Marie-Laure squints up at the naked bulbs strung in three-yard intervals along the ceiling; each sets a rainbow-colored halo rotating in her vision.

The guide hangs his cane on his wrist and rubs his hands together. "It's a long story. Do you want to hear a long story?"

They nod.

He clears his throat. "Centuries ago, in the place we now call Borneo, a prince plucked a blue stone from a dry riverbed because h #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Locked Door quotes by Holly Black
#38. Okay. how about that time when you smoked all that weed that you thought was laced with something? You fell into the tub, but you refused to get out because you were convinced that the back of your head was going to fall off?
"That third story happened to a guy named Jace in my dorm. Me and Sam and another guy in our hall took turns reading "Paradise Lost" through the locked door. I think it made him more paranoid, though."
"That's not true," he says.
"Well, he *seemed* more paranoid to me," I say. "And he still gets a little weired out when any one mentions angels. #Quote by Holly Black
Locked Door quotes by Laura Ruby
#39. Trying to get a handle on what he thought, what he felt, what he thought about what he felt and vice versa, was like trying to open a locked door by ramming it with his head. #Quote by Laura Ruby
Locked Door quotes by Anthony Liccione
#40. Many never realize they always had the key in their pocket, so they die at the locked door, never reaching deep inside to pull it out. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Locked Door quotes by Missy Robertson
#41. Jase grew up in a home where the doors were never locked, and he never saw any reason for us to lock ours. "A locked door won't stop a thief," he reasoned, "so you might as well save your door." Those teenagers could have turned the handle! Now, since Duck Dynasty came into our lives, all of us Robertsons have learned to lock our doors. Better yet, we have installed high-tech security systems. #Quote by Missy Robertson
Locked Door quotes by Laura Thalassa
#42. There was a bang as someone tried to open our locked door. Leanne and I grabbed each other. "Bitches, let me in!" Oliver. I let out a shaky breath, got up, and unlocked the door. He pushed his way in before enveloping me in a hug. "Stop almost dying on me beautiful." When he pulled away, I saw his eyes we red rimmed. "Aw, Oliver," I hugged him back, "I'm pretty tough to kill. #Quote by Laura Thalassa
Locked Door quotes by Jeff Dunham
#43. Jeff-did you guys have a good day?
Jose-no
Jeff-why
Jose-he got my stick jammed in the car door
Jeff-what?did you say sorry
Jose- no
Jeff- why didn't you say sorry
Jose- cause he couldn't breath
Jeff-why couldn't he breath
Jose- cause he was laughing to hard #Quote by Jeff Dunham
Locked Door quotes by Leona Windwalker
#44. An SUV idled at the curb, and Sol was just about to go past it when he felt himself yanked inside. The door slammed shut and he found himself in the vehicle with the three men from the coffee shop. "Hey," one of them greeted him from the front passenger seat with a sardonic smile.
"What the hell?!" Sol burst out.
"Now, now," the man said placatingly, "None of that. Just providing a taxi service."
"I didn't order no taxi!"
"No, but this ain't that kind of taxi. #Quote by Leona Windwalker
Locked Door quotes by Margaret Bourke-White
#45. Nothing attracts me like a closed door. I cannot let my camera rest until I have pried it open. #Quote by Margaret Bourke-White
Locked Door quotes by Joyce Brothers
#46. When success comes in the door, it seems, love often goes out the window. #Quote by Joyce Brothers
Locked Door quotes by Geri Halliwell
#47. Celebrity has some amazing advantages, of course it does. You're given an extraordinary power. It's a door-opener. I might not have to queue for things. #Quote by Geri Halliwell
Locked Door quotes by Suzannah Daniels
#48. Your scare tactics are useless on me, Thane. My people have needs of their own, and they don't include being locked up in an underground cavern by a bunch of overgrown mosquitoes. #Quote by Suzannah Daniels
Locked Door quotes by Ogden Nash
#49. Higgledy piggledy, my black hen,
She lays eggs for gentlemen.
Gentlemen come every day
To count what my black hen doth lay.
If perchance she lays too many,
They fine my hen a pretty penny;
If perchance she fails to lay,
The gentlemen a bonus pay.
Mumbledy pumbledy, my red cow,
She's cooperating now.
At first she didn't understand
That milk production must be planned;
She didn't understand at first
She either had to plan or burst,
But now the government reports
She's giving pints instead of quarts.

Fiddle de dee, my next-door neighbors,
They are giggling at their labors.
First they plant the tiny seed,
Then they water, then they weed,
Then they hoe and prune and lop,
They they raise a record crop,
Then they laugh their sides asunder,
And plow the whole caboodle under.

Abracadabra, thus we learn
The more you create, the less you earn.
The less you earn, the more you're given,
The less you lead, the more you're driven,
The more destroyed, the more they feed,
The more you pay, the more they need,
The more you earn, the less you keep,
And now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to take
If the tax-collector hasn't got it before I wake. #Quote by Ogden Nash
Locked Door quotes by Freddy Adu
#50. My mom was always the supplier of soccer balls, and so people were always knocking on my door, and trying to get me out so we could play. #Quote by Freddy Adu
Locked Door quotes by Alexandra Bracken
#51. You want to hear the rules?"
My heart jackhammered as I nodded. That same hand slid around my hip, up under my shirt, and felt warm and perfect against my lower back. I closed my eyes as his lips just barely brushed mine. His touch made me feel brave. It pushed the uncertainty back until it couldn't reach me. "The first one is you can't think too hard about it. The second is you say when you want to stop. The third is you do whatever feels good to you. The fourth is-"
"-you stop talking," I said, blindly reaching back to pull the door shut, "and kiss me? #Quote by Alexandra Bracken
Locked Door quotes by Karen Hawkins
#52. I'm not blind,you know." His gaze flicked down to her breasts, interestingly encased in her tight riding habit. "I can see very well."
Her cheeks flushed, and she tried to pull away again.
Behind Dougal came a bang, like the sound of a large door slamming, and Sophia's eyes widened. "Angus, no!" she cried.
"Ye misbegotten bounder!" Angus roared.
Dougal turned just in time to see a huge fist hit him squarely in the eye.
Thanks to Sophia, who'd jumped up and clung tightly to Angus's huge arm, the punch was softened. Otherwise, not only would it have knocked Dougal down (which it did), and not only would it have sent the world dark (which it did), and not only would it have blackened his eye (which it did), but it also might have killed him. Instead, Angus's slowed fist merely smashed into Dougal's face, spun him around, and laid him out as neatly as a piece of firewood. #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Locked Door quotes by Melissa Checker
#53. Neither the cat nor I missed you while you were gone. It's worse than that. We danced the visitor-gone dance, flinging our feet (and paws) with particular glee. You remember the dance - the one you do after shutting the door behind a difficult visitor (like a family member)? You hold your breath for 120 seconds then deadbolt the door, race to the bed, leap on to it and jump, twirl, bell-kick and prance, singing all the while, she's go-onnne, she's gooo-oonne. #Quote by Melissa Checker
Locked Door quotes by Jackson Pearce
#54. Do you . . ." I begin, then turn around to make sure Scarlett is really asleep, not just faking it - her chest rises and falls a different way when it's genuine. Satisfied, I look back to Silas and choose my words carefully. "Do you think I'm a good hunter?"
Silas looks confused. "Of course. You and Lett are the best hunters I - "
"No, not me and Scarlett. Just me," I say.
Silas slows the car a tad to look at me. "Yes. Yes, of course. You're - pardon my language - you're fucking deadly with a knife, Rosie."
I smile and shake my head, remembering all the times Silas scolded his older brothers for throwing language around in front of my "virgin ears." It's sort of satisfying to know that his perspective has changed. "Right," I say. "I mean, we hunt together. But Scarlett . . . it's like a part of her soul."
"Dramatic much?" Silas teases, but he frowns when I don't laugh.
"You know what I mean. It drives her."
"But not you?"
"I don't know. I mean, maybe. It doesn't matter. I owe Scarlett my life, you know?"
"Yeah, but . . . like I told your sister, that doesn't mean she's got you locked in a cage forever. Unless you want to be locked in a cage, I mean. Wait, that sounds weird." Silas shakes his head and sighs. "I'm forever tripping on words with you, Rosie."
"I have that effect on people," I joke, but Silas's face stays serious as he nods slightly. I grin nervously. #Quote by Jackson Pearce
Locked Door quotes by Patricia Josephine
#55. Chills ran up Lake's spine like fingers. Visions of himself rising above everyone appeared before him like a mirage. Beautiful men catered to his needs, and he sat surrounded by piles of money. The last image was of a club located across the city - The Devil's Lair. The door was open and a sign flashed, 'Welcome'. #Quote by Patricia Josephine
Locked Door quotes by Frances Hardinge
#56. And below them, Toll-by-Night set about folding itself away, like a stilt-legged monster into a closet. Its inhabitants crept back into the unwanted places, the crannies and cellars and forgotten attics, and locked themselves in.

A bugle blew. A silver jingling swept through the town, sealing away all bad reputations and bitter-tasting names.

Another bugle sounded. And day swept in like a landlord, not knowing that it was only a guest in night's town. #Quote by Frances Hardinge
Locked Door quotes by Kiersten White
#57. Lend stood staring blankly at the shelves of food. Arianna had sneaked upstairs to eat - or rather, drink - in private. "I have no idea what to make. I'm too exhausted to think."
"You have no right to be tired. And I never want to see you asleep ever again. I had enough of that for a lifetime these past few days."
"Allow me to take over," Jack said, striding into the kitchen. He nudged Lend out of the way and started pulling out a huge pile of ingredients.
"Can you even cook?"
"If Lend had let me make him an omelet earlier, that question would already be answered."
Lend sat next to me, leaning over and putting his arm under my head as a pillow against the counter. "Remind me again why we trust him now?"
"Because we need all the help we can get. And I think he really is sorry. And a lot of people are going to depend on him of all the faeries leave."
Jack furiously chopped vegetables. "Captain Dependable! Wait, we vetoed that one. The Divine Door Maker? Too much? Hmm . . . Handsome Hero, but maybe I should move away from alliteration. Something sleek. Our Lord and Master Jack."
Lend rolled his eyes and gave me a seriously-can-I-just-beat-him-to-a-pulp look. #Quote by Kiersten White
Locked Door quotes by Mary Downing Hahn
#58. Reaching out, Andrew crooked his little finger with mine. "If I live, I'll find a way to let you know, Drew," he promised. "I owe you that much--and a whole lot more."
After a little silence, Andrew's face brightened. "You don't suppose you could stay, do you? Just think of the fun we'd have playing tricks on Edward and Mrs. Armiger." He laughed at his own thoughts. "Why, we'd make their heads spin, Drew. They wouldn't know one of us from the other."
For a moment, it seemed possible. My mother and father were away, they wouldn't miss me. As for Aunt Blythe--well, we'd think of some way to let her know I was all right. We were bouncing on the bed, singing "Yip-I-Addy-I-Ay," when the door opened and Mama appeared. It was Andrew she looked at, not me.
"Why are you still awake?" she asked. "I told you to go to sleep."
As Mama approached the bed, Andrew flung his arms around her. "You can see me, Mama," he cried. "Oh, thank the Lord! It's me, your own true son, back again for keeps."
She stared at him, perplexed. "What nonsense is this? Of course I can see you. Of course it's you. Who else would it be, you silly goose?"
I slid off the bed and ran to her side. "Me," I shouted, "it could be me."
When Mama didn't even blink, I tugged at her nightgown. "Look at me," I begged. "I'm here too, we both are. Andrew and me. Can't you see us both?" I hugged her, but all she did was shiver.
"No wonder this room is so drafty," she murmured. "The attic do #Quote by Mary Downing Hahn
Locked Door quotes by Dennis Quaid
#59. I was a late bloomer. I tried out for the football team, and I got locked off the field. That's how I wound up in drama. #Quote by Dennis Quaid
Locked Door quotes by Douglas Adams
#60. Somewhere in the cosmos, he said, along with all the planets inhabited by humanoids, reptiloids, fishoids, walking treeoids and superintelligent shades of the color blue, there was also a planet entirely given over to ballpoint life forms. And it was to this planet that unattended ballpoints would make their way, slipping away quietly through wormholes in space to a world where they knew they could enjoy a uniquely ballpointoid lifestyle, responding to highly ballpoint-oriented stimuli, and generally leading the ballpoint equivalent of the good life.
And as theories go this was all very fine and pleasant until Veet Voojagig suddenly claimed to have found this planet, and to have worked there for a while driving a limousine for a family of cheap green retractables, whereupon he was aken away, locked up, wrote a book and was finally sent into tax exile, which is the usual fate reserved for those who are determined to make fools of themselves in public. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Locked Door quotes by Logan Patricks
#61. Good. If any stranger comes up to you, I want you to shoot them in the head."
"Seriously?" I asked.
"Yes."
"What if it's some old woman, asking me to help her open a door or something?"
"Aria, I'm not joking," Shadow said. "I need you to protect yourself."
"Alright, in the head," I agreed. "Fuck grandma. #Quote by Logan Patricks

Locked Door quotes by Tessa Dare
#64. He couldn't escape it. She'd begun re-calibrating his senses the moment she came through that library door. His peripheral vision was now trained for flashes of golden hair: his ears, trained for her melodic laugh. He found himself following the drifting scent of her soap and dusting powder, like a dog panting after the butcher's wife. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Locked Door quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita

Locked Door quotes by Karen Marie Moning

Locked Door quotes by Eleanor Hallowell Abbott
#68. Out from the servient shoulders of some smooth-tongued Waiter it stares, into the scared dilating pupils of the White Satin Bride with her pledged hand clutching her Bridegroom's sleeve. Up from the gravelly, pick-and-shovel labor of the new-made grave it lifts its weirdly magnetic eyes to the Widow's tears. Down from some petted Princeling's silver-trimmed saddle horse it smiles its electrifying, wistful smile into the Peasant's sodden weariness. Across the slender white rail of an always out-going steamer it stings back into your gray, land-locked consciousness like the tang of a scarlet spray. And the secret of the face, of course, is "Lure"; but to save your soul you could not decide in any specific case whether the lure is the lure of personality, or the lure of physiognomy - a mere accidental, coincidental, haphazard harmony of forehead and cheek-bone and twittering facial muscles. #Quote by Eleanor Hallowell Abbott
Locked Door quotes by Robin S. Sharma
#69. You must be ruthless with your time. Learn to say no. Having the courage to say no to the little things in life will give you the power to say yes to the big things. Shut the door to your office when you need a few hours to work on that big case. Remember what I told you. Don't pick up the phone every time it rings. It is there for your convenience, not the convenience of others. Ironically, people will respect you more when they see that you are a person who values his time. They will realize that your time is precious and they will value it. #Quote by Robin S. Sharma
Locked Door quotes by Toni Andrews
#70. He had waited until I had my door open, then driven away. The perfect gentleman. Sort of like Dracula just before he drank your blood. #Quote by Toni Andrews
Locked Door quotes by Edward Kelsey Moore
#71. Mrs Jackson rummaged tapped on Odette's bedroom door as Clarice rummaged through her best friend's chest of drawers searching for something to liven up, or cover up those dreadful dresses Odette always wore. The blind grandmother who had made her clothes back when she was a little girl was dead, but her grandma's style and taste lived on in Odette's sorry closet. #Quote by Edward Kelsey Moore
Locked Door quotes by Sue Townsend
#72. A. MOLE'S SCONES Ingredients 4 oz flour or metric equivalent 2 oz butter or metric equivalent 2 oz sugar or metric equivalent 1 egg (eggs are still only eggs) Method Beat up all the ingredients. Make a tin greasy, throw it all in. Turn oven to number 5. Wait until scones are higher than they were. Should be 12 minutes, but keep opening oven door every 30 seconds. #Quote by Sue Townsend
Locked Door quotes by Ronald Frame
#73. As a little boy, I apparently had a predilection for undoing latch gates, running up pathways and ringing doorbells - and then running off again and away before the door was opened behind me. #Quote by Ronald Frame
Locked Door quotes by Ashlan Thomas
#74. One simply did not invite death upon their door unless they were hoping to die. #Quote by Ashlan Thomas
Locked Door quotes by James Comey
#75. I was a high school senior and home alone one night with my younger brother. And a guy - gunman - kicked in our front door at our home in New Jersey and held the two of us captive. We escaped. He caught us again. We escaped again. So, a pretty horrific experience. #Quote by James Comey
Locked Door quotes by DJ Khaled
#76. They'll try to close the door on you ... Just open it. #Quote by DJ Khaled
Locked Door quotes by Kendall Grey
#77. I surrender to the predator who has me trapped in his sights. Let him take me.
Common sense tries to creep into my sex-saturated brain, but I slam the door in its face. I don't want to think about what I'm doing. Thinking will spoil everything. I just want to feel. Without reason or motivation or guilt. #Quote by Kendall Grey
Locked Door quotes by Peter J. Carroll
#78. Drugs have a long history of use in magic in various cultures, and usually in the context of either ecstatic communal rituals or in personal vision quests. However compared to people in simple pastoral tribal situations most people in developed countries now live in a perpetual state of mental hyperactivity with overactive imaginations anyway, so throwing drugs in on top of this usually just leads to confusion and a further loss of focus.
Plus as the real Shamans say, if you really do succeed in opening a door with a drug it will thereafter open at will and most such substances give all they will ever give on the first attempt. #Quote by Peter J. Carroll
Locked Door quotes by Yann Martel
#79. If you went to a home, kicked down the front door, chased the people who lived there out into the street and said, "Go! You are free! Free as a bird! Go! Go!"
do you think they would shout and dance for joy? They wouldn't. Birds are not free. The people you've just evicted would sputter, "With what right do you throw us out? This is our home. We own it. We have lived here for years. We're calling the police, you scoundrel. #Quote by Yann Martel
Locked Door quotes by Laura Frantz
#80. Will you forgive me for the things I said tae you when we last met? Before I went oot and slammed the door?" She looked up at him. "I came here to ask you that very thing." Only when I saw you, I forgot. "Forgiven, then?" She softened. "You were only trying to warn me, as a friend." "Aye, as a friend." "I shouldn't have sassed you so." He smiled, or tried to. "But you are so good at it. #Quote by Laura Frantz
Locked Door quotes by R.S. Grey
#81. Room service."
YES. My milkshake! I shove Ian out of the way and run for the door. "Oh, and PS, I'm not sharing my dessert."
"Even with your husband?" he asks, dipping into the bathroom to turn on the shower.
HUSBAND! My heart skips a beat. My stomach, however, does not.
"Cute." I smile. "But no. #Quote by R.S. Grey
Locked Door quotes by Mary Oliver
#82. The World I Live In

I have refused to live
locked in the orderly house of
reasons and proofs.
The world I live in and believe in
is wider than that. And anyway,
what's wrong with Maybe?

You wouldn't believe what once or
twice I have seen. I'll just
tell you this:
only if there are angels in your head will
you ever, possibly, see one. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Locked Door quotes by Muhammad Ali
#83. Only the nose knows
Where the nose goes

Locked Door quotes by Taryn Plendl
#84. I looked up and our eyes locked. I could see the longing in his eyes. I had never kissed a boy before, and I had never wanted to as much as I did right now. #Quote by Taryn Plendl
Locked Door quotes by Nathan Filer
#85. I said that my mother is mad. I said that. But you might not see it. I mean, you might not think that anything I've told you proves she is mad. But there are different kinds of madness. Some madness doesn't act mad to begin with, sometimes it will knock politely at the door, and when you let it in, it'll simply sit in the corner without a fuss - and grow. Then one day, maybe many months after your decision to take your son out of school and isolate him in a house for reasons that got lost in your grief, one day that madness will stir in the chair, and it will say to him, 'You look pale. #Quote by Nathan Filer

#86. I asked the universe for serendipity and you walked through my door. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Locked Door quotes by Danny Boyle
#87. Some of us are interested in directors, but really the vast majority of us are interested in actors. You experience the films through the actors, so they're all locked into your imagination in some kind of layer of fantasy or hatred or wherever they settle into your imagination. #Quote by Danny Boyle
Locked Door quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#88. Why, you may ask, take on this unpleasant, frightening subject? Why stare into the sun? Why not follow the advice of the venerable dean of American psychiatry, Adolph Meyer, who, a century ago, cautioned psychiatrists, 'Don't scratch where it doesn't itch'? Why grapple with the most terrible, the darkest and most unchangeable aspect of life? ... Death, however, DOES itch. It itches all the time; it is always with us, scratching at some inner door, whirring softly, barely audibly, just under the membrane of consciousness. #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Locked Door quotes by Nikolai Gogol
#89. He was already beginning, as always happens at a respectable age, to take a firm stand for Raphael and the old masters––not because he was fully convinced of their lofty merit, but so as to shove them in the faces of young artists. #Quote by Nikolai Gogol
