Rooms quotes by Washington Irving
#1. How we delight to build our recollections upon some basis of reality,
a place, a country, a local habitation! how the events of life, as we look back upon them, have grown into the well-remembered background of the places where they fell upon us! Here is some sunny garden or summer lane, beautified and canonized forever, with the flood of a great joy; and here are dim and silent places,
rooms always shadowed and dark to us, whatever they may be to others,
where distress or death came once, and since then dwells forevermore. #Quote by Washington Irving
Rooms quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#2. I always feel that if you put me in a room with a director and a writer and let me talk about the script, I can give a good account of myself. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Rooms quotes by David Foster Wallace
#3. The night-noises of the metro night: harbor-wind skirling on angled cement, the shush and sheen of overpass traffic, TPs' laughter in interior rooms, the yowl of unresolved cat-life. Horns blatting off in the harbor. Receding sirens. Confused inland gulls' cries. Broken glass from far away. Car horns in gridlock, arguments in languages, more broken glass, running shoes, a woman's either laugh or scream from who can tell how far, coming off the grid. Dogs defending whatever dog-yards they pass by, the sounds of chains and risen hackles. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Rooms quotes by Frank Luntz
#4. The perfect opening is the word imagine, because imagine allows you to communicate in the eyes and the vision of the listener rather than yours. And the best illustration of that is "1984." Room 101 in "1984" - everyone's read it, and we all have our own imagination of what that looks like. #Quote by Frank Luntz
Rooms quotes by John Cheever
#5. They were delivered to mansions remodeled into country clubs, boarding schools, retreats for the insane, alcohol cures, health farms, wildlife sanctuaries, wallpaper factories, drafting rooms and places where the aged and the infirm waited sniffily for the angel of death in front of their television sets. #Quote by John Cheever
Rooms quotes by Robert Greene
#6. I don't know that Brandy [Burre] would ever categorize herself as being trapped, but I felt like I saw her being trapped. When she's cleaning the room and she puts the labels on the toys, that was something that my wife, who's also friends with Brandy, was very adamant that we try to capture. My wife said that showed to her Brandy's creative outlet because she can't be creative in the ways that she used to be or that she maybe wants to be in the future. #Quote by Robert Greene
Rooms quotes by Henry Holmes Smith
#7. I think control is the wrong word. I would put it this way. You see a lovely girl across a crowded room and you walk toward her with hope in your mind. That's the way [my] pictures are made. #Quote by Henry Holmes Smith
Rooms quotes by Liz Kessler
#8. If you looked round the rooms, you wouldn't think there was anything missing. But it's like one of those Spot the difference cartoons in a puzzle book. The changes are so subtle, yet glaringly obvious once you've seen them. A photo missing here, a cup there. A heart a bit more broken than it was before. #Quote by Liz Kessler
Rooms quotes by Jimmy Carter
#9. To work for better understanding among people, one does not have to be a former president sitting at a fancy conference room table. Peace can be made in the neighborhoods, the living rooms, the playing fields, and the classrooms of our country. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Rooms quotes by Jane Hamilton
#10. I'd forgotten how your blood flows toward a person when they move, so that all at once, you know what the pull of gravity feels like. And you know that this is something strong and important, something that you need for life, this woman moving through the room. #Quote by Jane Hamilton
Rooms quotes by Philip Zimbardo
#11. What troubles me is the Internet and the electronic technology revolution. Shyness is fueled in part by so many people spending huge amounts of time alone, isolated on e-mail, in chat rooms, which reduces their face-to-face contact with other people. #Quote by Philip Zimbardo
Rooms quotes by Kevin Gates
#12. I know my voice is very distinctive because in a room of 100 people, my voice is always picked out. #Quote by Kevin Gates
Rooms quotes by Del Close
#13. I'm tired of being the funniest person in the room. #Quote by Del Close
Rooms quotes by James Frain
#14. I would want to keep that in a little glass sphere, perhaps in the corner of my living room, lit up. But, I think that's an extremely expensive rig. The costumes were crazy expensive, beyond anything they could afford to give you, to take away. They're going to be in a museum of some kind, on display until they get the go for Tron: Legacy 2. It would have been awesome to keep, though. I don't think there was anything that they could afford to let go. I probably would have been arrested. #Quote by James Frain
Rooms quotes by Regina O'Melveny
#15. It is only the rooms of the present I wish to inhabit. #Quote by Regina O'Melveny
Rooms quotes by R. W. Apple
#16. A first hint of the power of the electronic media to bring disaster directly into living rooms came with the radio broadcast of the explosion of the zeppelin "Hindenburg," in 1937 ... #Quote by R. W. Apple
Rooms quotes by Ken Wilson
#17. Today we have gay people whose relationships, until just recently, have been branded by society as extraordinarily shameful, as uniquely perverse - worse than incest. The cultural heritage of this view had the effect of driving them all underground, where sex is practiced surreptitiously, secretively, for fear of social ostracism, not to mention physical harm. And now, tired of the highway rest stops, tired of the back rooms in gay bars, many in that community have a longing to attempt what can only be regarded as modern marvel regardless of gender: two people willing to attempt lifelong fidelity to each other, come what may. This doesn't seem to me to be a "slippery slope." It seems to me that it might actually be instead, a redemptive trajectory. #Quote by Ken Wilson
Rooms quotes by Shaukat Siddiqui
#18. You search for life sitting in closed rooms and reading books, and I have seen life in the brothel. I have seen life in small huts and narrow, dark alleyways... Look at life with the naked eye, and see the extent to which it has become a victim. #Quote by Shaukat Siddiqui
Rooms quotes by Katie J. Davis
#19. Adoption is a beautiful picture of redemption. It is the Gospel in my living room. #Quote by Katie J. Davis
Rooms quotes by Paulo Coelho
#20. You have two types of writers: one like Proust who was locked in his room and wrote the masterpiece. And the other type was Hemingway who celebrated life and also wrote a masterpiece. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Rooms quotes by Janis Ian
#21. I was interviewed for a Grammy television show, and they asked me about Nashville, and I talked for three minutes and when I finished, I was teared up. The whole room was crying. Nashville has given me a home, where I never had a home before. #Quote by Janis Ian
Rooms quotes by Ernest Vincent Wright
#22. Isn't it surprising what an array of things a woman can drag forth, burrowing into attics, rooms and nooks! Things long out of mind; an old thing; a worn-out thing; but it has lain in that room, nook or bag until just such a riot of soap and scrubbing brush brings it out. And, as I think of it, a human mind could, and should go through just such a ransacking, occasionally; for you don't know half of what an accumulation of rubbish is kicking about, in its dark, musty corridors. Old fashions in thoughts; bigotry; vanity; all lying stagnant. So why not drag out and sort all that stuff, discarding all which is of no valuation? About half of us will find, in our minds, a room, having on its door a card, saying: "It Was Not So In My Day." Go at that room, right off. That "My Day" is long past. "Today" is boss, now. If that "My Day" could crawl up on "Today," what a mix-up in World affairs would occur! Ox cart against aircraft; oil lamps against arc lights! Slow, mail information against radio! But, as all this stuff is laid out, what will you do with it? Nobody wants it. So I say, burn it, and tomorrow morning, how happy you will find that musty old mind! #Quote by Ernest Vincent Wright
Rooms quotes by Mervyn Peake
#23. Each day I live in a glass room unless I break it with the thrusting of my senses and pass through the splintered walls to the great landscape. #Quote by Mervyn Peake
Rooms quotes by Terry Pratchett
#24. Angua sighed and stepped into the room behind the little museum. It was like the back rooms of museums everywhere, full of junk and things there is no room for on the shelves and also items of doubtful provenance, such as coins dated '52 BC'. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Rooms quotes by Tom Robbins
#25. Nonetheless, the fiery dreams did fade, and inside rooms made of clay and painted blue, sweeter visions were nourished. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Rooms quotes by Matthew McConaughey
#26. I don't know how to work a room. It's a real skill. #Quote by Matthew McConaughey
Rooms quotes by Charles Dickens
#27. You!' said the old man contemptuously. 'What do you know of the time when young men shut themselves up in those lonely rooms, and read and read, hour after hour, and night after night, till their reason wandered beneath their midnight studies; till their mental powers were exhausted; till morning's light brought no freshness or health to them; and they sank beneath the unnatural devotion of their youthful energies to their dry old books? #Quote by Charles Dickens
Rooms quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#28. This frail vessel thou emptiest again and again, and fillest it ever with fresh life. This little flute of a reed thou hast carried over hills and dales, and hast breathed through it melodies eternally new ... Thy infinite gifts come to me only on those very small hand of mine. Ages pass, and still thou pourest, and still there is room to fill. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Rooms quotes by Sophia Bush
#29. I have walked away from friendships when I've realized that someone smiles to someone's face and talks about them the minute they walk out of a room. I have no room in my life for that kind of negative energy anymore. #Quote by Sophia Bush
Rooms quotes by Leila Khaled
#30. Like Mahmoud Abbas. He is not gaining anything. He puts conditions and Israel ignores them. Israel doesn't give him any hint that they will accept a single one of his conditions. Let me tell you. Arafat went to Oslo and signed [the agreement]. What did Israel do? They confined him in Muqata in one room and killed him. #Quote by Leila Khaled
Rooms quotes by Florence Nightingale
#31. In a sick-room or a bed-room there should never be shutters shut. #Quote by Florence Nightingale
Rooms quotes by Larry Hagman
#32. You know Hollywood is a weird and wonderful place, I didn't know I Dream of Jeanie had been cancelled after 5 years until I went back to go on the lot to pick up some clothes and things I had in my dressing room. #Quote by Larry Hagman
Rooms quotes by Ilona Andrews
#33. I clawed my eyes open and rolled off my bed. For some reason, someone had moved the floor several feet lower than I had expected, and I fell and crashed with a thud.
Ow.
A blond head popped over the side of the bed, and a familiar male voice asked, "Are you okay down there?"
Curran. The Beast Lord was in my bed. No, wait a minute. I didn't have a bed, because my insane aunt had destroyed my apartment. I was mated to the Beast Lord, which meant I was in the Keep, in Curran's rooms, and in his bed. Our bed. Which was four feet high. Right.
"Kate?"
"I'm fine."
"Would you like me to install one of those child playground slides for you? #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Rooms quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#34. Burn, O evening hearth, and waken Pleasant visions, as of old! Though the house by winds be shaken, Safe I keep this room of gold! #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Rooms quotes by Fay Wray
#35. When the picture was finished, they took me into the sound room and then I screamed more for about five minutes just steady screaming, and then they'd cut that in and add it. #Quote by Fay Wray
Rooms quotes by Will Schwalbe
#36. Connelly writes, "As long as there is paper, people will write, secretly, in small rooms, in the hidden chambers of their minds, just as people whisper the words they're forbidden to speak aloud." In #Quote by Will Schwalbe
Rooms quotes by Manolo Blahnik
#37. Peter Hinwood found all these old pictures - Polaroids - and when I saw them, I just didn't believe that the person in them was connected with me. I was in a hotel room with one of those front-and-back mirrors, and I thought, Who the hell is that? I used to be thin as a rake. I used to have the nice-shaped pecs. It's sad. No, it's not sad, it's the reality, and I've accepted this now. #Quote by Manolo Blahnik
Rooms quotes by Steven Gregory
#38. The stories told by ancient peoples from which we are descended have managed to put into pleasant and entertaining words what we've been repeating ever since in living rooms, courts, churches, and therapy sessions. The "life tips" that we seek have been there for us all along. #Quote by Steven Gregory
Rooms quotes by Charlie Benante
#39. I had demos that I'd send out of the songs and I'd get, "Great, can't wait to get in a room and actually play this and work on the album." So, it was good all-around because they knew even though I wasn't with them for some of the shows, I was being productive, which was really important because I didn't want to just sit on my ass. Once I was able to use my hand again, I would go right into it. #Quote by Charlie Benante
Rooms quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#40. Their favourite phrase! From which it follows that, if society is normally organised, all crime will cease at once, since there will be nothing to protest against and all men will become righteous in one instant. Human nature is not taken into account, it is excluded, it's not supposed to exist! They don't recognise that humanity, developing by a historical living process, will become at last a normal society, but they believe that a social system that has come out of some mathematical brain is going to organise all humanity at once and make it just and sinless in an instant, quicker than any living process! That's why they instinctively dislike history, 'nothing but ugliness and stupidity in it,' and they explain it all as stupidity! That's why they so dislike the living process of life; they don't want a living soul! The living soul demands life, the soul won't obey the rules of mechanics, the soul is an object of suspicion, the soul is retrograde! But what they want though it smells of death and can be made of India-rubber, at least is not alive, has no will, is servile and won't revolt! And it comes in the end to their reducing everything to the building of walls and the planning of rooms and passages in a phalanstery! The phalanstery is ready, indeed, but your human nature is not ready for the phalanstery - it wants life, it hasn't completed its vital process, it's too soon for the graveyard! You can't skip over nature by logic. Logic presupposes three possibilities, but #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Rooms quotes by Shane Claiborne
#41. For the church as we know it is a tragically dysfunctional family, in which some children are starving while others have food stashed in their closets. Some of us are living on the street while others have empty rooms in our homes. And, of course, there are all sorts of things being done that bring great dishonor and embarrassment to the family name. #Quote by Shane Claiborne
Rooms quotes by G-Eazy
#42. Music meant more to me than a social life and just hangin out. haha just being tired of repacking my suit case every couple of days, and anytime i wanted to cop some new clothes i would have to throw away something I had to make room in the suitcase. #Quote by G-Eazy
Rooms quotes by Jan Kjaerstad
#43. E was 'nuts about her', as the parlance of the day had it, as if it were generally recognised that love and madness are adjoining rooms with extremely porous walls. #Quote by Jan Kjaerstad
Rooms quotes by Jose Saramago
#44. It is an archive ... You probably get rooms like this in even the most modern of offices, like a rusty anchor chained to the past and with no purpose in life. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Rooms quotes by Deane Juhan
#45. Touching hands are not like pharmaceuticals or scalpels. They are like flashlights in a darkened room. The medicine they administer is self-awareness. And for many of our painful conditions, this is the aid that is most urgently needed. #Quote by Deane Juhan
Rooms quotes by Elizabeth Goudge
#46. But tonight he remembered only the warm rooms and the faces of men and women bent over their bowls of steaming soup, and the children already asleep in their beds. He felt for them all a profound love, and he glowed. The moment of his loving was in the world of time merely sixty seconds ticked out by his watch, but in another dimension it was an arc of light encircling the city and leaving not one heart within it untouched by blessedness. Then the clocks began to strike, and the light of the ugly little man's moment of self-forgetfulness was drawn back again into the deep warmth within him. And he understood nothing of what had happened to him, only that now, for a little while, for a few moments or a few days, he would be happy and feel safe. #Quote by Elizabeth Goudge
Rooms quotes by Harriet Beecher Stowe
#47. If I am to write, I must have a room to myself, which shall be my room. #Quote by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Rooms quotes by Yosa Buson
#48. Throw open your window and let the scenery of clouds and sky enter your room. #Quote by Yosa Buson
Rooms quotes by Betty White
#49. When we started in television, there was that magic box in the corner of the room, and 'Oh my gosh - look what it's doing!' #Quote by Betty White
Rooms quotes by Nina George
#50. It was as if he had passed through a gate of fear and had realised to his surprise that behind it lay not a gaping chasm, but other doors, bright hallways and inviting rooms. #Quote by Nina George
Rooms quotes by Campbell Scott
#51. In the editing room, 20 percent of the time you're using stuff from before the actor knew the camera was rolling or you're taking a line from somewhere else and putting it in his mouth. #Quote by Campbell Scott
Rooms quotes by Nick Vujicic
#52. I found happiness when I realized that as imperfect as I may be, I am the perfect Nick Vujicic. I am God's creation, designed according to His plan for me. That's not to say there isn't room for improvement. I'm always trying to be better so I can better serve Him and the world! #Quote by Nick Vujicic
Rooms quotes by Nancy Huston
#53. He sees dilapidated three- and four-story concrete blocks, their walls painted in peeling pastel colors and streaked with graffiti, and because of the corrugated tin roofs, he again thinks of the reserve, which he also doesn't know. Sunlight. Black people staring at him. Tropical greenery. Tough dusty roots and grasses, leaves and vines. Gutted buildings. Ta, ta-da DA, ta, ta-da DA, ta, ta-da DA. Cement walls give onto gapingly empty ideas of rooms. #Quote by Nancy Huston
Rooms quotes by Jimmy Iovine
#54. Every room that you walk into is better off that you're there. #Quote by Jimmy Iovine
Rooms quotes by Nicole Krauss
#55. For me, what I am making in the novel is a place to live. When I first switched from poetry to novels, I was asked why, and the metaphor I came up with was about poems as rooms. You can make a room perfect, but then you have to shut the door and never go back, whereas a novel is like a house - it can never be perfect, but you can make a life in it. #Quote by Nicole Krauss
Rooms quotes by Sophia De Mello Breyner Andresen
#56. Poetry is my understanding with the world, my intimacy with things, my participation in what is real, my engagement with voices and images. This is why a poem speaks not of ideal life but of actual life: the angle of a window; the reverberation of streets, cities, rooms; shadows along a wall. #Quote by Sophia De Mello Breyner Andresen
Rooms quotes by Ilse Aichinger
#57. I wish to learn silence from the dark woods, the unused middle rooms, from the girls in their white dresses, #Quote by Ilse Aichinger
Rooms quotes by Dave Grohl
#58. In this day and age, when you can use a machine or computer to simulate or emulate what people can do together, it still can't replace the magic of four people in a room playing. #Quote by Dave Grohl
Rooms quotes by Neil Gaiman
#59. Her eyes are grey. Her hair is straggly and wet. Her fingers are stubby. The nails are chewed and broken. Her teeth are crooked, jagged things. There is a vacancy in her gaze, a feeling of absence when you are near her that is impossible to put into words. Her sigil is the hooked ring. One day her hook will catch your heart. Describing her, we articulate what she is and why she is: when hope is past, she is there. She is in a thousand thousand waiting rooms and empty streets, in grey concrete buildings and anonymous hotels. She is on the other side of every mirror. When the eyes that look back at you know you too well, and no longer care for what they see, they are her eyes. She stands and waits, and in her posture the pain no longer tells you to live, and in her presence joy is unimaginable. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Rooms quotes by Buddy Hackett
#60. A comic, you have to be looking down at him. My favorite rooms, the audience is above the stage, stadium-style. #Quote by Buddy Hackett
Rooms quotes by Eugene Burger
#61. The house of magic has many rooms. #Quote by Eugene Burger
Rooms quotes by Milena Michiko Flasar
#62. There are rooms one never leaves. #Quote by Milena Michiko Flasar
Rooms quotes by Blaise Pascal
#63. All men's miseries derive from not being able to sit quiet in a room alone. #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Rooms quotes by Sara Ahmed
#64. These ways we have to settle. Moving house. I hate packing: collecting myself up, pulling myself apart. Stripping the body of the house: the walls, the floors, the shelves. Then I arrive, an empty house. It looks like a shell. How I love unpacking. Taking things out, putting things around, arranging myself all over the walls. I move around, trying to distribute myself evenly around the rooms. I concentrate on the kitchen. The familiar smell of spices fills the air. I allow the cumin to spill, and then gather it up again. I feel flung back somewhere else. I am never sure where the smell of spices takes me, as it had followed me everywhere. Each smell that gathers returns me somewhere; I am not always sure where that somewhere is. Sometimes the return is welcome, sometimes not. Sometimes it is tears or laughter that makes me realize that I have been pulled to another place and another time. Such memories can involve a recognition of how one's body already feels, coming after the event. The surprise when we find ourselves moved in this way or that. So we ask the question, later, and it often seems too late: what is it that has led me away from the present, to another place and another time? How is it that I have arrived here or there? #Quote by Sara Ahmed
Rooms quotes by Angel Olsen
#65. I'd rather people interpret the songs and get whatever they can out of them instead of thinking about me crying in a room with a guitar. #Quote by Angel Olsen
Rooms quotes by David Ogilvy
#66. Always hold your sales meetings in rooms too small for the audience, even if it means holding them in the WC. 'Standing room only' creates an atmosphere of success, as in theatres and restaurants, while a half-empty auditorium smells of failure. #Quote by David Ogilvy
Rooms quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#67. I lay there, stretched out, looking at the one star visible through the tiny window of the room. Only connect. How can you do that when the connections are broken? #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Rooms quotes by John Fowles
#68. I acquired expensive habits and affected manners. I got a third-class degree and a first-class illusion: that I was a poet. But nothing could have been less poetic that my seeing-through-all boredom with life in general and with making a living in particular. I was too green to know that all cynicism masks a failure to cope-- an impotence, in short; and that to despise all effort is the greatest effort of all. But I did absorb a small dose of one permanently useful thing, Oxford's greatest gift to civilized life: Socratic honesty. It showed me, very intermittently, that it is not enough to revolt against one's past. One day I was outrageously bitter among some friends about the Army; back in my own rooms later it suddenly struck me that just because I said with impunity things that would have apoplexed my dead father, I was still no less under his influence. The truth was I was not a cynic by nature, only by revolt. I had got away from what I hated, but I hadn't found where I loved, and so I pretended that there was nowhere to love. Handsomely equipped to fail, I went out into the world. #Quote by John Fowles
Rooms quotes by Michael Marshall Smith
#69. You haven't seen untidiness until you've seen a room where gravity has failed twice in different directions. #Quote by Michael Marshall Smith
Rooms quotes by Mario Puzo
#70. Keep your friends close but your enemies closer. #Quote by Mario Puzo
Rooms quotes by B.A. Paris
#71. I wait for the images to fade, listening for the sound of somebody's presence, a movement from one of the rooms, a floorboard creaking upstairs. But there is only silence, and the dust of hopes never fulfilled, taunting me with what could have been, if only I'd acted differently. #Quote by B.A. Paris
Rooms quotes by Wale
#72. The Loudest person in the room, is usually the brokest #Quote by Wale
Rooms quotes by Jonathan Swift
#73. In all assemblies, though you wedge them ever so close, we may observe this peculiar property, that over their heads there is room enough; but how to reach it is the difficult point. To this end the philosopher's way in all ages has been by erecting certain edifices in the air. #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Rooms quotes by Saleem Haddad
#74. But in the midst of this decaying, burning city, there are pockets of hope. It can be found in the tiny dark rooms in underground bars, where women with short hair cheer on men in dresses. It can be felt in abandoned cinemas where anonymous strangers fall in love if only for a few moments, and in the living rooms where families crowd around, drinking sweet black tea and Skyping their homesick relatives so that together they can watch the long, rambling talk shows that go on all night. #Quote by Saleem Haddad
Rooms quotes by Ross Macdonald
#75. We writers, as we work our way deeper into our craft, learn to drop more and more personal clues. Like burglars who secretly wish to be caught, we leave our fingerprints on broken locks, our voiceprints in bugged rooms, our footprints in the wet concrete. #Quote by Ross Macdonald
Rooms quotes by Steven Weinberg
#76. In our universe we are tuned into the frequency that corresponds to physical reality. But there are an infinite number of parallel realities coexisting with us in the same room, although we cannot tune into them. #Quote by Steven Weinberg
Rooms quotes by Paul Auster
#77. In my books, there are a lot of people stuck in rooms. Or, conversely, out in the wide open. It seems that, in a funny way, when people are cooped up in rooms they are freer than when they are wandering about in the world. #Quote by Paul Auster
Rooms quotes by Ray Bradbury
#78. When rivers flooded, when fire fell from the sky, what a fine place the library was, the many rooms, the books. With luck, no one found you. How could they!
when you were off to Tanganyika in '98, Cairo in 1812, Florence in 1492!? #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Rooms quotes by William Hazlitt
#79. One of the pleasantest things in the world is going on a journey; but I like to go by myself. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Rooms quotes by Sophie Scholl
#80. Who would have thought it possible that a tiny flower could preoccupy a person so completely that there simply wasn't room for any other thought ... #Quote by Sophie Scholl
Rooms quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#81. I was just thinking – today is the first and last day of forever. It's kind of hard to wrap my head around it. Even with all this extra room for wrapping. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Rooms quotes by Betty Eadie
#82. Life does not end when we die. Death is a rebirth into a spirit world of light and love, a transition from the physical to the spiritual that is no more frightening or painful than passing between rooms through an open doorway. It is a joyful homecoming to our natural home, ... #Quote by Betty Eadie
Rooms quotes by Arundhati Roy
#83. At the time, there would only be incoherence. As though meaning had slunk out of things and left them fragmented. Disconnected. The glint of Ammu's needle. The colour of a ribbon. The weave of the cross-stitch counterpane. A door slowly breaking. Isolated things that didn't mean anything. As though the intelligence that decodes life's hidden patterns - that connects reflections to images, glints to light, weaves to fabrics, needles to thread, walls to rooms, love to fear to anger to remorse - was suddenly lost. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Rooms quotes by Barbara Holland
#84. A catless writer is almost inconceivable. #Quote by Barbara Holland
Rooms quotes by Tom Franklin
#85. Dixie Clay knew now that the world was full of secret sorrowing women, each with her own doors closed to rooms she wouldn't be coming back to, walking and talking and cutting lard into flour and slicing fish from their spines and acting as if it were an acceptable thing, this living. #Quote by Tom Franklin
Rooms quotes by Vickie Winans
#86. All the green-screen stuff - all the special effects stuff - I shot right there in my house, in the basement in my theater room ... #Quote by Vickie Winans
Rooms quotes by Dorothy Parker
#87. All I need is room enough to lay a hat and a few friends. #Quote by Dorothy Parker
Rooms quotes by Michael Rooker
#88. There's always room. That's what the directors usually want. They want the performer to bring themselves and give what they have to give for the role. The smart ones allow that to happen because then it becomes even more organic within the performer's imagination. It becomes even more real. It's not always a given in other films, but when Gunn works, and we all work together in a collaborative way like that, it becomes a given that you bring it. It becomes a lot of fun. #Quote by Michael Rooker
Rooms quotes by John Lee Hooker
#89. I have heartaches, I have blues. No matter what you got, the blues is there. 'Cause that's all I know - the blues. And I can sing the blues so deep until you can have this room full of money and I can give you the blues. #Quote by John Lee Hooker
Rooms quotes by Keanu Reeves
#90. On a good night, I get underwear, bras, and hotel-room keys thrown onstage ... You start to think that you're Tom Jones. #Quote by Keanu Reeves
Rooms quotes by Jill Scott
#91. I was backstage at the House of Blues in L.A where I was about to perform, and Stevie Wonder and Prince turned up at my dressing room together! Stevie started beat boxing and Prince started singing one of my songs, all of a sudden it was like I was in a cypher with these incredible artists. #Quote by Jill Scott
Rooms quotes by Virginia Woolf
#92. All artists need a room of their own #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Rooms quotes by Martha Wainwright
#93. I'm in hotel rooms night after night, playing a lot of the same venues as my dad and carrying the guitar that used to be his. We're the same person. I don't know if he realises how much of a legacy he has left to his children. #Quote by Martha Wainwright
Rooms quotes by Jesus Christ
#94. My father's house has many rooms. #Quote by Jesus Christ
Rooms quotes by Linda Ellerbee
#95. Putting people in a room and strapping wires to their wrist to find out if I make them tingle when I'm telling them about Beirut is a long way from Edward R. Murrow. #Quote by Linda Ellerbee
Rooms quotes by Sister Parish

Rooms quotes by Andrew Tan
#97. By the year 2020, we envision our group to be the largest hotel developer in the Philippines, with a total portfolio of around 12,000 hotel rooms. #Quote by Andrew Tan
Rooms quotes by J.M. Barrie
#98. Fairies have to be one thing or the other, because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time. #Quote by J.M. Barrie
Rooms quotes by Stephen King
#99. Waiting rooms were made for books - of course! #Quote by Stephen King
Rooms quotes by Daryl Hall
#100. If you take a bunch of superstars and put them in a room where they don't have their assistants and entourage, it's funny to see what happens. #Quote by Daryl Hall
Rooms quotes by George H. W. Bush
#101. A new breeze is blowing, and a nation refreshed by freedom stands ready to push on. There is new ground to be broken, and new action to be taken. There are times when the future seems thick as a fog; you sit and wait, hoping the mists will lift and reveal the right path. But this is a time when the future seems a door you can walk right through into a room called tomorrow. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Rooms quotes by James Sanborn
#102. All my high school papers were written in the rare book room. #Quote by James Sanborn

#103. I think there's enough room in country music for everybody. #Quote by Charley Pride
Rooms quotes by Bonnie Burnard
#104. The magnificent houses, the three old-money brick houses, each with a small turret and a wraparound porch, had been built uptown near the churches when the town was younger and smaller, before the Great War. The wraparound porches were there to hold rainy-day children and morning tea carts and quiet late-evening converstion, cosy, discreet conversation which could not easily take place in front rooms or kitchens or bedrooms, certainly not on the street. #Quote by Bonnie Burnard
Rooms quotes by Jessica Khoury
#105. You fool of a jinni! LET ME OUT!
Startled from my thoughts, I pull Zhian's jar from my sleeve and turn it over. I can easily imagine him swirling inside, a cloud of smoke and fury.
Be silent, Zhian. I'll decide when you're let out, and right now, you're not inspiring my merciful side.
He howls and hurls insults, which I try to ignore as I trail after Aladdin.
I have Zhian at last. At any moment I could break open the jar and free him, fulfilling my end of the bargain and claiming my freedom. But what happens next? The humiliation of being captured by the humans will have made Zhian furious. He's had two moons to feed his hatred of humans, and by now it is ravenous, destructive. If I let him out now, Parthenia will not stand a chance. He'll destroy the city from the inside out, regardless of my deal with his father.
I have to release him outside the city walls and trust that the wards will protect everyone inside from his inevitable wrath.
Aladdin heads back toward his rooms, and I follow at a distance, my chest feeling emptier than ever.
It's time to say goodbye. #Quote by Jessica Khoury
Rooms quotes by Gretchen Rubin
#106. Some kind of clutter is difficult - letting go of things with sentimental value, sifting through papers - but some clutter I find very refreshing to clear. I drive my daughters nuts because I'm always wandering into their rooms to clear clutter. #Quote by Gretchen Rubin
Rooms quotes by Ilona Andrews
#107. So. You refuse my money, you serve me thirty-year-old Highland Park scotch, and we've been in the same room for approximately five minutes, yet none of my bones are broken. This leads me to believe that your back is against the wall and you desperately need me for something. I'm dying to know what that is. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Rooms quotes by Bear Grylls
#108. I'm terrified of walking into a room full of people. Sitting down at a dinner table with 15 strangers brings me out in a sweat. #Quote by Bear Grylls
Rooms quotes by George Crabbe
#109. A club there is of smokers
dare you come
To that close, clouded, hot, narcotic room?
When, midnight past, the very candles seem
Dying for air, and give a ghastly gleam;
When curling fumes in lazy wreaths arise,
And prosing topers rub their winking eyes. #Quote by George Crabbe
Rooms quotes by George Carlin
#110. Where does the dentist go when he leaves the room? #Quote by George Carlin
Rooms quotes by Kate Moss
#111. I'll never forget that show season. It was completely mad. I was staying between Christy and Naomi's rooms and it was all limos and the Ritz Hotel and all that kind of business. #Quote by Kate Moss
Rooms quotes by Aaron Sorkin
#112. A friend is somebody who says the same things to your face that they would say if you're not in the room. #Quote by Aaron Sorkin
Rooms quotes by Rajneesh
#113. Right awareness is awareness of one's own being in its totality: all that is good and all that is bad. But as you become aware, the bad starts disappearing - just as when you bring light into the room, the darkness disappears. When light is in the room, darkness cannot exist there. Sin is darkness, forgetfulness, unconsciousness. #Quote by Rajneesh
Rooms quotes by Graham Swift
#114. If you can't stand your own company alone in a room for long hours, or, when it gets tough, the feeling of being in a locked cell, or, when it gets tougher still, the vague feeling of being buried alive
then don't be a writer. #Quote by Graham Swift
Rooms quotes by Douglas Woolf
#115. He must have pressed the wrong button, or several of them, for when the door fretted open he found himself deep underground, with no heart to try again. The corridor was dark, the air heavy with must, the rooms on both sides quiet yet stirring, as though numb people within were digging themselves out. #Quote by Douglas Woolf
Rooms quotes by R. Buckminster Fuller
#116. Our beds are empty two-thirds of the time. Our living rooms are empty seven-eighths of the time. Our office buildings are empty one-half of the time. It's time we gave this some thought. #Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller
Rooms quotes by Timothy Snyder
#117. After Tony [Judt]'s death, in August 2010, I toured to discuss the book we had written together, which he had entitle 'Thinking the Twentieth Century.' I realized as I traveled around the United States that its subject had been forgotten all too well. In hotel rooms, I watched Russian television toy with the traumatic American history of race, suggesting that Barack Obama had been born in Africa. It struck me as odd that the American entertainer Donald Trump picked up the theme not long thereafter. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Rooms quotes by Kenneth Branagh
#118. It's funny to be in rooms where you were originally referred to as 'The Shakespeare Guy' and to suddenly be in the position where you're 'The Blockbuster Guy.' That's a pretty unusual turnabout, I must say. #Quote by Kenneth Branagh
Rooms quotes by Marie Kondo

Rooms quotes by Louise Penny
#122. Gamache knew people were like homes. Some were cheerful and bright, some gloomy. Some could look good on the outside but feel wretched on the interior. And some of the least attractive homes, from the outside, were kindly and warm inside.
He also knew the first few rooms were for public consumption. It was only in going deeper that he'd find the reality. And finally, inevitably, there was the last room, the one we keep locked, and bolted and barred, even from ourselves. Especially from ourselves. #Quote by Louise Penny
Rooms quotes by Jennifer Block
#123. When ACOG (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) claims that home birth and midwives are unsafe, they imply that the women who choose it and the midwives that provide it are acting irresponsibly and selfishly. They stigmatize normal birth just as the political right has stigmatized abortion. And they stigmatize women.
"Our country has created a mythology of women who are irresponsible and don't care," says Paltrow. "We talk about welfare queens, crack moms, and murderous women who have abortions." A culture that allows such language to permeate our national subconscious inevitably dehumanizes all women, including mothers. Lyon argues that this thinking perpetuates a phrase often invoked in exam rooms and delivery rooms: The goal is to have a healthy baby. "This phrase is used over and over and over to shut down women's requests," she says. "The context needs to be that the goal is a healthy mom. Because mothers never make decisions without thinking about that healthy baby. And to suggest otherwise is insulting and degrading and disrespectful."
What's best for women is best for babies.
...
The goal is to have a healthy family. #Quote by Jennifer Block

Rooms quotes by Laura Marano
#125. Working on 'Austin and Ally' has been an absolute dream! We literally have fun every single day! Whether it's scaring each other or singing together or just hanging out in each other's dressing rooms, the cast and I are super close! I feel really lucky to be with everyone on our set! #Quote by Laura Marano
Rooms quotes by Haruki Murakami
#126. I clicked the gate shut and slipped down the alley. Through one fence after another, I caught glimpses of people in their dining rooms and living rooms, eating and watching TV dramas. Food smells drifted into the alley through kitchen windows and exhaust fans. One teenaged boy was practicing a fast passage on his electric guitar, with the volume turned down. In a second floor window, a tiny girl was studying at her desk, an earnest expression on her face. A married couple in a heated argument sent their voices out to the alley. A baby was screaming. A telephone rang. Reality spilled out into the alley like water from an overfilled bowl - as sound, as smell, as image, as plea, as response. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Rooms quotes by Stewart Edward White
#127. A man is skillful at woodraft just in proportion as he approaches this balance. Knowing the wilderness can be comfortable when a less experienced man would endure hardship. Conversely, if a man endures hardships where a woodsman could be comfortable, it argues not his toughness, but his ignorance or foolishness, which is exactly the case with our blatant friend of the drawing-room reputation. #Quote by Stewart Edward White
Rooms quotes by Deepak Chopra
#128. Everyone knows how to choose; few know how to let go. But it's only by letting go of each experience that you make room for the next. The skill of letting go can be learned, and once learned you will enjoy living much more spontaneously. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Rooms quotes by Doug Stanhope
#129. I used to do boiler room telemarketing for a living, like hardcore fraud stuff that gets busted on 60 Minutes every week. #Quote by Doug Stanhope
Rooms quotes by Jamie Dimon
#130. Look, in any system, you want highly ethical people who really understand issues to form policies and make tough decisions. You need all the right people in the room. But there's a general view in Washington now by many politicians that if you ever were on this side, you're conflicted for being on that side. #Quote by Jamie Dimon
Rooms quotes by Linda Pastan
#131. What We Want
What we want
is never simple.
We move among the things
we thought we wanted:
a face, a room, an open book
and these things bear our names
now they want us.
But what we want appears
in dreams, wearing disguises.
We fall past,
holding out our arms
and in the morning
our arms ache.
We don't remember the dream,
but the dream remembers us.
It is there all day
as an animal is there
under the table,
as the stars are there. #Quote by Linda Pastan
Rooms quotes by Brian Greene
#132. There's a picture of my dorm room in the college yearbook as the most messy, most disgusting room on the Harvard campus, where I was an undergraduate. #Quote by Brian Greene
Rooms quotes by Marc Ian Barasch
#133. Once, at a seminar, I heard a Westernized lama say that a meditator's state of mind should be like that of a hotel doorman. A doorman lets the guests in, but he doesn't follow them up to their rooms. He lets them out, but he doesn't walk into the street with them to their next appointment. He greets them all, then lets them go on about their business. Meditation is, in its initial stages, simply accustoming oneself to letting thoughts come and go without grasping at their sleeves or putting up a velvet rope to keep them out. #Quote by Marc Ian Barasch
Rooms quotes by Jean Harlow
#134. Politics? Ha! You couldn't get into politics. You couldn't get in anywhere. You couldn't even get in the men's room at the Astor! #Quote by Jean Harlow
Rooms quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#135. Two days later, two days before Christmas, I am judged fat and sane enough to be kicked out of the hospital. The plan to send me straight back to New Seasons won't work. There is no room at the inn for a leather Lia-skin plumped full of messy things. Not yet. The director promises Dr. Marrigan he'll have a bed for me next week. I'm stable enough to go home until then. They all say I'm stable. #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Rooms quotes by Garrison Keillor
#136. Humor, a good sense of it, is to Americans what manhood is to Spaniards, and we will go to great lengths to prove it. Experiments with laboratory rats have shown that, if one psychologist in the room laughs at something a rat does, all of the other psychologists will laugh equally. Nobody wants to be left holding the joke. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Rooms quotes by Anais Nin
#137. They walked in silence through the little streets of Chinatown. Women from all over the world smiled at them from open windows, stood on the doorsteps inviting them in. Some of the rooms were exposed to the street. Only a curtain concealed the beds. One could see couples embracing. There were Syrian women wearing their native costume, Arabian women with jewelry covering their half-naked bodies, Japanese and Chinese women beckoning slyly, big African women squatting in circles, chatting together. One house was filled with French whores wearing short pink chemises and knitting and sewing as if they were at home. They always hailed the passers-by with promises of specialities. The houses were small, dimly lit, dusty, foggy with smoke, filled with dusky voices, the murmurs of drunkards, of lovemaking. The Chinese adorned the setting and made it more confused with screens and curtains, lanterns, burning incense, Buddhas of gold. It was a maze of jewels, paper flowers, silk hangings, and rugs, with women as varied as the designs and colors, inviting men who passed by to sleep with them. #Quote by Anais Nin
Rooms quotes by Skip Bertman
#138. Everytime I go to Starkville I ask for a room without a view #Quote by Skip Bertman
Rooms quotes by Thierry Henry
#139. Because that's just the way it is, and don't sleep on what you did before, you know, because it can ... not hurt you, but you can find yourself sleeping on something that happened in the past, but you dare to progress and there is always room for progression. #Quote by Thierry Henry
Rooms quotes by Daniel Coyle
#140. Deep practice feels a bit like exploring a dark and unfamiliar room. You start slowly, you bump into furniture, stop, think, and start again. Slowly, and a little painfully, you explore the space over and over, attending to errors, extending your reach into the room a bit farther each time, building a mental map until you can move through it quickly and intuitively. #Quote by Daniel Coyle
Rooms quotes by Marcello Lippi
#141. What happened in the United changing room has happened to me 50 times in my career. I have kicked bottles of mineral water, bags and shoes but I never hit a player. It's a question of technique, and the Scots must have a better technique. #Quote by Marcello Lippi
Rooms quotes by Bernie Siegel
#142. If I can't find a cat, I stop and quiet my mind, not yelling the cat's name, and focus on connecting with the cat and then I get the message and go to that room or outside door and find the cat. #Quote by Bernie Siegel
Rooms quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#143. It didn't matter in the end how old they had been, or that they were girls, but only that we had loved them, and that they hadn't heard us calling, still do not hear us, up here in the tree house, with our thinning hair and soft bellies, calling them out of those rooms where they went to be alone for all time, alone in suicide, which is deeper than death, and where we will never find the pieces to put them back together. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Rooms quotes by Louis Kahn

#146. You have to leave room in life to dream. #Quote by Buffy Sainte-Marie
Rooms quotes by Kristin Hannah
#147. It isn't about being at the same school or the same town or even the same room. It's about being together. Love is a choice you make. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Rooms quotes by Robert Bly
#148. What does it mean when a man falls in love with a radiant face across the room? It may mean that he has some soul work to do. His soul is the issue. Instead of pursuing the woman and trying to get her alone, away from her husband, he needs to go alone himself, perhaps to a mountain cabin, for three months, write poetry, canoe down a river, and dream. That would save some women a lot of trouble. #Quote by Robert Bly
Rooms quotes by Douglas Pagels
#149. Don't scrutinize people with a microscope; view them from a comfortable distance. And allow some room for compassion in the space the lies between you. #Quote by Douglas Pagels
Rooms quotes by Norman Rockwell
#150. I know of no painless process for giving birth to a picture idea. When I must produce, I retire to a quiet room with a supply of cheap paper and sharp pencils; my brain knows it's going to take a beating. #Quote by Norman Rockwell

Rooms quotes by Ally Carter
#156. She watched him stop to pat the mayor on the back. He stumbled a little in the crowd, and his left hand disappeared ever so briefly inside the mayor's tuxedo pocket. It was over in a flash, a blink, a second. And Macey was quite certain she was the only person in the entire room to have seen it, but that was just as well. At least, Macey had seen enough. And at last, the boy made sense.

Rooms quotes by Jen Lancaster
#157. The living room is a monument to my impulsive spending habits. I've got more than two hundred DVDs, including cinematic greats such as Monkey Bone, Corkey Romano, and A Night at the Roxbury, leading me to believe not only do I have awful taste in films, but I also have a Chris Kattan fixation. What I don't have is $4000 earing intrest in a money market account. #Quote by Jen Lancaster

Rooms quotes by David Talbot

Rooms quotes by Emily Henry

Rooms quotes by William Westney
#161. The reason so many of us lose our bearings about practising early in life is that we practice in living rooms with other family members in earshot - and healthy practice would simply sound too obnoxious, intrusive, repetitious and unmusical for others to hear without annoyance. #Quote by William Westney
Rooms quotes by Frederick Lenz

Rooms quotes by Gene Kranz
#163. Mission Control will be perfect. When you leave this meeting today you will go to your office and the first thing you will do there is to write -Tough and Competent- on your blackboards. It will never be erased. Each day when you enter the room these words will remind you of the price paid by Grissom, White, and Chaffee. These words are the price of admission to the ranks of Mission Control. #Quote by Gene Kranz

Rooms quotes by Germaine Greer
#165. Most women still need a room of their own and the only way to find it may be outside their own home. #Quote by Germaine Greer
Rooms quotes by Margaret Atwood
#166. Most of us will. We'll choose knowledge no matter what, we'll maim ourselves in the process, we'll stick our hands into the flames for it if necessary. Curiosity is not our only motive: love or grief or despair or hatred is what drives us on. We'll spy relentlessly on the dead: we'll open their letters, we'll read their journals, we'll go through their trash, hoping for a hint, a final word, an explanation, from those who have deserted us--who've left us holding the bag, which is often a good deal emptier than we'd supposed.

But what about those who plant such clues, for us to stumble on? Why do they bother? Egotism? Pity? Revenge? A simple claim to existence, like scribbling your initials on a washroom wall? The combination of presence and anonymity--confession without penance, truth without consequences--it has its attractions. Getting the blood off your hands, one way or another.

Those who leave such evidence can scarcely complain if strangers come along afterwards and poke their noses into every single thing that would once have been none of their business. And not only strangers: lovers, friends, relations. We're voyeurs, all of us. Why should we assume that anything in the past is ours for the taking, simply because we've found it? We're all grave robbers, once we open the doors locked by others.

But only locked. The rooms and their contents have been left intact. If those leaving them had wanted oblivion, there was always fire. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Rooms quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#167. Sometimes, I feel the past and the future pressing so hard on either side that there's no room for the present at all. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Rooms quotes by Suzanne Collins
#168. Today I might lose both of them.
I try to imagine a world where both Gale's and Peeta's voices have ceased. Hands stilled. Eyes unblinking. I'm standing over their bodies, having a last look, leaving the room where they lie. But when I open the door to step out into the world, there's only a tremendous void. A pale grey nothingness that is all my future holds. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Rooms quotes by D.B.C. Pierre
#169. Imagine the spirit as a mansion. You'll guess we don't use many rooms. Apart from a few moments in childhood we don't dance around it in sunlight. But there's a traffic of things in and out, and what happens is that unwanted bulks can gather inside. Gather and gather, menacing us. Unable to shift them, we hide in ever-smaller spaces. And in our last hole, life offers a choice: to play out our demise in parallel theatres - psychosis, zealotry, religion, cancer, addiction - or to bow quietly out. But beware: life doesn't ask these high questions when we're confident and fresh - it waits for hopelessness. #Quote by D.B.C. Pierre
Rooms quotes by Dan Flavin

Rooms quotes by Anthony Doerr
#172. The Americans fished on, not hoping for much anymore, perhaps for a miracle, searching for small things to be happy about, because they were Americans and this was what their upbringings had taught them to do. They found a brief happiness, for example, in the potato chips that came to their rooms on expensive china and in the genuinely hopeful way the hotel girl asked if they'd had any luck. They took pleasure in their morning calls to the Lufthansa man, his wriggly explanations for the canceled flights to Norway. They smiled at the way a church had been built so the setting sun hit it high and perfect and orange, and the way they could follow the river to a park where miniskirted women lay in the grass with headphones clamped over their ears, and even at the way the little student-girls came filing down at noon behind their English-teaching beauty to call them fools. #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Rooms quotes by Tom Petty

Rooms quotes by T. S. Eliot
#174. The lamp hummed:
'Regard the moon,
La lune ne garde aucune rancune,
She winks a feeble eye,
She smiles into corners.
She smoothes the hair of the grass.
The moon has lost her memory.
A washed-out smallpox cracks her face,
Her hand twists a paper rose,
That smells of dust and old Cologne,
She is alone
With all the old nocturnal smells
That cross and cross across her brain.
The reminiscence comes
Of sunless dry geraniums
And dust in crevices,
Smells of chestnuts in the streets,
And female smells in shuttered rooms,
And cigarettes in corridors
And cocktail smells in bars. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Rooms quotes by Bryan Procter
#175. All round the room my silent servants wait, My friends in every season, bright and dim. #Quote by Bryan Procter
Rooms quotes by Walter Benjamin
#176. He who seeks to approach his own buried past must conduct himself like a man digging ... He must not be afraid to return again and again to the same matter; to scatter it as one scatters earth, to turn it over as one turns over soil. For the matter itself is only a deposit, a stratum, which yields only to the most meticulous examination what constitutes the real treasure hidden within the earth: the images, severed from all earlier associations, that stand -like precious fragments or torsos in a collector's gallery -in the prosaic rooms of our later understanding. #Quote by Walter Benjamin
Rooms quotes by Hiro Murai
#177. I love museums, but I always thought there was something funny about a group of strangers silently staring at works of inanimate objects together. Each person is having a very personal and maybe even emotional experience, but it's in the confines of an extremely quiet and sterile room. #Quote by Hiro Murai
Rooms quotes by Sachin Kundalkar
#178. From then on, right up to this day, I fear that I walk funny, in other words, that I walk like a woman. When I find myself walking at my own pace, I almost immediately slow down. And I learned what men do not do. They do not wet their dry lips by running their tongues over them. They don't trot after their mothers into the kitchen. They don't use face powder. They don't sit on a motorbike behind a woman. They don't need mirrors in the rooms where they might change their clothes. On trips, they can go behind a tree. They don't even need an enclosed space to take a dump; they can do it in the open. They shouldn't be afraid of other people seeing their bodies. If there's only one bathroom, they can bathe in the open. When caned in class, they do not cry. They do not buy tamarind from the lady who sells it on the road and they certainly do not sit by her side and eat it. #Quote by Sachin Kundalkar
Rooms quotes by Dennis Mccullough
#179. Far from the cinematic drama of hospital emergency rooms, Slow Medicine embraces the unsung work of daily attention that is the greatest need and firmest foundation for longevity and quality of life at the farthest reach of age. Excellent chronic care attends to the day-to-day needs and conditions of the patient - by offering emotional support and social stimulation, supplying better nutrition, easing chronic skin and nail conditions, and making sleeping, moving, bathing, dressing, and voiding easier. Slow Medicine is the careful practice that most reliably sustains fragile patterns of well-being. This foundation for better elder care strengthens, rather than replaces, the selective use of high-tech care. During the time of the writing of this book, I have lived the #Quote by Dennis Mccullough
Rooms quotes by Patrick Phillips
#180. By the end of October, the night riders had forced out all but a handful of the 1,098 members of the African American community - who left in their wake abandoned homes and schools, stores and livestock, and harvest-ready crops standing in the fields. Overnight, their churches stood empty, the rooms where they used to sing 'River of Jordan' and 'Go Down Moses' now suddenly, eerily quiet. #Quote by Patrick Phillips

Rooms quotes by Lemony Snicket
#182. For one thing, the penthouse was simply too big. Besides the seventy-one bedrooms, there were a number of living rooms, dining rooms, breakfast rooms, snack rooms, sitting rooms, standing rooms, ballrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, and an assortment of rooms that seem to have no purpose at all. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Rooms quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#183. It seemed like the best weapons in my life had always been the most innocuous: empty plastic bins, a blank CD, an unmarked syringe, my smile in a dark room. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Rooms quotes by Lauren Oliver
#184. People, Caroline thought, were like houses. They could open their doors. You could walk through their rooms and touch the objects hidden in their corners. But something
the structure, the wiring, the invisible mechanism that kept the whole thing standing
remained invisible, suggested only by the fact of its existing at all. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Rooms quotes by Donita K. Paul
#185. Fenworth owned a world-famous library. More rooms held books than beds. Pillows stuffed in niches and comfortable chairs scattered throughout each room offered abundant paces to curl up and read. #Quote by Donita K. Paul

Rooms quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#187. In this way I have sat in many rooms and walked in many gardens, and it has been as though I were a stick of furniture or a branch of a tree. I seem to have caused no sense of restraint or embarrassment. People have been able to talk freely in front of me, almost as freely as though I weren't there. I suppose some might think this a great compliment; it has given me a curious feeling of nonexistence. Now #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Rooms quotes by Zhuangzi
#188. Let your mind wander in simplicity, blend your spirit with the vastness, follow along with things the way they are, and make no room for personal views - then the world will be governed. #Quote by Zhuangzi
Rooms quotes by Thomas Ehrlich
#189. Students learn best not by reading the Great Books in a closed room but by opening the doors and windows of experience. #Quote by Thomas Ehrlich
Rooms quotes by Fred Allen
#190. Television is a triumph of equipment over people, and the minds that control it are so small that you could put them in a gnat's navel with room left over for two caraway seeds and an agent's heart. #Quote by Fred Allen
Rooms quotes by Richard Dawkins
#191. I am trying to call attention to the elephant in the room that everybody is too polite - or too devout - to notice: religion, and specifically the devaluing effect that religion has on human life. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Rooms quotes by Annie Dillard
#192. Appealing workplaces are to be avoided. One wants a room with no view, so imagination can meet memory in the dark. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Rooms quotes by Jeff Smith
#193. Slaves were taught to be fine chefs, but they endangered their lives if they made a mistake or served an ill-prepared dish. Rather than being reprimanded, they were often hauled into the dining room and flogged in the presence of the guests. #Quote by Jeff Smith
Rooms quotes by Andre Gunder Frank
#194. It is ironic that Keynesianism originated as a weapon to combat depression, but became universally accepted and "successful" only during (and because of!) the postwar expansion. At the first sign of renewed world recession, Keynesian theory has proved itself to be a snare and a delusion that has gone into immediate bankruptcy. The resulting "post-Keynesian synthesis" is also the theoretical reason for the reactionary exhumation of the simplistic, neoclassical, and monetarist economic theory of the 1920s. This revival of old theory is highlighted by the award of Nobel prizes in economics to Friedrich von Hayek, whose theoretical work was done before the Great Depression, and Milton Friedman, whose lone voice echoed in the wilderness until the new world economic crisis put his unpopular and antipopulist theories on the agenda of business board rooms and government cabinet rooms in one capitalist country after another. The real reason for the recent interest in fifty-year-old theories is that capital now wants them to legitimize its attack on the welfare state and "unproductive" expenditures on social services, which capital claims to need for "productive" investment in industry, including armaments. #Quote by Andre Gunder Frank
Rooms quotes by Barbara Hambly
#195. If the other novice wizards on the row hadn't broken into Raeshaldis's rooms, pissed on her bed and written WHORE and THIEF on the walls, she probably would have been killed on the night of the full moon. #Quote by Barbara Hambly
Rooms quotes by Marcel Proust
#196. As for me, I feel myself living and thinking in a room where everything is the creation and the language of lives profoundly different from mine, of a taste opposite to mine, where I find nothing of my conscious thought, where my imagination is excited by feeling itself plunged into the depths of the non-ego; I feel happy only when setting foot - on the Avenue de la Gare, on the Port, or on the Place de l'Eglise - in one of those provincial hotels with cold, long corridors where the wind from outside contends successfully with the efforts of the heating system, where the detailed geographic map of the district is still the sole ornament on the walls, where each noise helps only to make the silence appear by displacing it, where the rooms keep a musty perfume which the open air comes to wash, but does not eliminate, and which the nostrils inhale a hundred times in order to bring it to the imagination, which is enchanted with it, which has it pose like a model to try to recreate it with all the thoughts and remembrances that it contains... #Quote by Marcel Proust
Rooms quotes by Richard E. Besser
#197. Emergency rooms are closed, many hospital wards are as well leaving people who are sick with heart disease, trauma, pregnancy complications, pneumonia, malaria and all the everyday health emergencies with nowhere to go. #Quote by Richard E. Besser
Rooms quotes by China Mieville
#198. I do not dream, der Grimnebulin. I am a calculating machine that has calculated how to think. I do not dream. I have no neuroses, no hidden depths. My consciousness is a growing function of my processing power, not the baroque thing that sprouts from your mind, with its hidden rooms in attics and cellars. #Quote by China Mieville
Rooms quotes by Philip K. Dick
#199. I love you,' Rachael said. 'If I entered a room and found a sofa covered with your hide I'd score very high on the Voigt-Kampff test. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Rooms quotes by J.D. Robb
#200. The music room's in the next wing. We can have coffee and brandy there."
"I doubt we'd share the same taste in music, Roarke."
"You might be surprised," he murmured, "at what we share." He touched her cheek again, this time sliding his hand around until it cupped the back of her neck. "At what we will share. #Quote by J.D. Robb
