#1. What is the point in providing food and shelter for an animal that just soils your furniture, makes your home smell bad, and ultimately dies? - Author: Veronica Roth
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Veronica Roth
#2. He was in his secret room in the heart now. Having entered he could be bold. A man hasn't to be on his best behavior in Heaven; he can kick the furniture around. He can stoop down and picks up lumps of mortality without being born again to die. - Author: Patrick Kavanagh
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Patrick Kavanagh
#3. Fatigued by her journey, the Countess soon after supper proposed retiring to rest; a proposal extremely agreeable to Madeline, whose spirits still felt agitated. The Countess conducted her to her chamber, which was near her own, and at the end of a long gallery that overlooked the hall; here they parted; but a servant remained, who offered to assist Madeline in undressing; an offer which she, never accustomed to such attendance, refused; and, feeling a restraint in her presence, dismissed her; yet scarcely had she done so, ere she felt an uneasy sensation, something like fear, stealing over her mind as she looked round her spacious and gloomy apartment; nor could she prevent herself from starting as the tapestry, which represented a number of grotesque and frightful figures, agitated by the wind that whistled through the crevices, every now and then swelled from the walls. She sat down near the door, wishing herself again in her own little chamber, and attentively listening for a passing step that she might desire the servant she had dismissed to be recalled; but all was profoundly still, and continued so; and at length she recollected herself, blushed for the weakness she had betrayed; and, recommending herself to the protection of heaven, retired to bed, where she soon forgot her cares and fears. She awoke in the morning with renovated spirits; and, impatient to gratify her curiosity by examining the contents of the chamber, instantly rose: the furniture was rich but old-fa - Author: Regina Maria Roche
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Regina Maria Roche
#4. It's very hard, feeling that you're no more than a piece of unwanted furniture in this world. - Author: Anton Chekhov
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Anton Chekhov
#5. The expeditions were often out of meat, and scant of clothes, but they always had the furniture and other requisites for the mass; they were always prepared, as one of the quaint chroniclers of the time phrased it, to 'explain hell to the savages. - Author: Mark Twain
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Mark Twain
#6. I strongly believe that people may not want, or may not be able, to start again from scratch, so giving old furniture a new lease of life is at the heart of my philosophy. - Author: Nina Campbell
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Nina Campbell
#7. I learned that buying expensive furniture with toddlers around is pointless. - Author: Nicole Polizzi
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Nicole Polizzi
#8. In every room, the furniture reflects you larger than life, or dwindling - Author: Adrienne Rich
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Adrienne Rich
#9. I moved to Hollywood when I was 22. I was married. I had a kid right away. And I had worked as a furniture mover amongst various other jobs, and I'd work eight, ten hours a day to support my family - and I'd come home and write for two hours a night or two and a half, or three hours a night. - Author: Paul Haggis
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Paul Haggis
#10. One sits more comfortably on a colour that one likes. - Author: Verner Panton
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Verner Panton
#11. Furniture is like that. Used and enjoyed as intended, it absorbs the experience and exudes it back into the atmosphere, but if simply bought for effect and left to languish in a corner, it vibrates with melancholy. Furnishings in museums ... are as unspeakably tragic as the unvisited inmates of old folk's homes. The untuned violins and hardback books used to bring 'character' to postwar suburban pubs crouch uncomfortably in their imposed roles like caged pumas in a zoo. The stately kitchen that is never or rarely used to bring forth lavish feasts for appreciative audiences turns inward and cold. - Author: Will Wiles
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Will Wiles
#12. Through this atmosphere of torrid splendor moved wan beings as richly upholstered as the furniture, beings without definite pursuits or permanent relations, who drifted on a languid tide of curiosity ...
Somewhere behind them, in the background of their lives there was doubtless a real past, yet they had no more real existence than the poet's shades in limbo. - Author: Edith Wharton
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Edith Wharton
#13. If the house is to be demolished tomorrow anyhow, people seem to feel, we may as well burn the furniture today. None of our problems are insoluble ... But it seems clear that to prevail we humans will have to act with a smartness and selflessness that has so far eluded us during our long and tangled history. - Author: Arthur C. Clarke
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#14. He doesn't understand that books don't get used up. I've tried to explain that they aren't like clothes or furniture - that we keep them because we might want to read them again. And because they remind us of how we felt when we read them. - Author: Paula Marantz Cohen
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Paula Marantz Cohen
#15. What a scraping paring affair it is to be sure! The wonder is that I've any clothes on my back, that I sit surrounded by solid furniture at this moment. Why, if one wants to compare life to anything, one must liken it to being blown through the Tube at fifty miles an hour - landing at the other end without a single hairpin in one's hair! Shot out at the feet of God entirely naked! Tumbling head over heels in the asphodel meadows like brown paper parcels pitched down a shoot in the post office! With one's hair flying back like the tail of a race-horse. Yes, that seems to express the rapidity of life, the perpetual waste and repair; all so casual, all so haphazard ... - Author: Virginia Woolf
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Virginia Woolf
#16. I don't spend money on anything. I don't collect anything. I don't spend it on furniture. - Author: Mick Jagger
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Mick Jagger
#17. No one chair should be isolated ... - Author: Elsie De Wolfe
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Elsie De Wolfe
#18. That was a piece I did in 1963 with Konrad Lueg in a department store, in the furniture department. It was announced in some papers as an exhibition opening, but the people who came didn't know that it was to be a sort of Happening. I don't think it is quite right that it has become so famous anyhow. It was just a lot of fun, and the word itself, Capitalist Realism, hit just right. But it wasn't such a big deal. - Author: Gerhard Richter
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Gerhard Richter
#19. Rose sat all alone in the big best parlor, with her little handkerchief laid ready to catch the first tear, for she was thinking of her troubles, and a shower was expected. She had retired to this room as a good place in which to be miserable; for it was dark and still, full of ancient furniture, somber curtains, and hung all around with portraits of solemn old gentlemen in wigs, severe-nosed ladies in top-heavy caps, and staring children in little bobtailed coats or short-waisted frocks. It was an excellent place for woe; amd the fitful spring rain that pattered on the windowpane seemed to sob,Cry away; I'm with you. - Author: Louisa May Alcott
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#20. I like living sparsely. In the main room, there's no furniture - no tables, no chairs, no coffee table - not even a decaffeinated coffee table. - Author: Sebastian Horsley
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Sebastian Horsley
#21. In my house there is no attempt whatever to secure harmonies of colour, or form, or furniture ... I am entirely independent for daily happiness upon the sensual qualities of form or colour-when I want them I take them either from the sky or from the fields. - Author: John Ruskin
Biltwell Furniture quotes by John Ruskin
#22. Confidence in one's self is the chief nurse of magnanimity, which confidence, notwithstanding, doth not leave the care of necessary furniture for it; and therefore, of all the Grecians, Homer doth ever make Achilles the best armed. - Author: Philip Sidney
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Philip Sidney
#23. I can tell by your eye shadow, you're from Brooklyn, right? ... Me too. My mother has plastic covers on all the furniture. Even the poodle. Looked like a barking hassock walking down the street. - Author: Elayne Boosler
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Elayne Boosler
#24. When I was growing up in Baltimore, the Colts were not just a team that played in the city. It was part of the city. Football players didn't make close to the money they make today and most took jobs in the off-season. Some were mechanics, others worked at furniture stores, and you could find them drinking at a neighborhood watering hole ... - Author: Barry Levinson
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Barry Levinson
#25. Of course the dust is building up unseen, but you learn to repress this for as long as it goes unnoticed by guests. And then one day someone moves a piece of furniture without your say-so, and everything comes into plain view. Dirt and scratch marks. Permanent damage to the parquet floor. By then it's too late. - Author: Fredrik Backman
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Fredrik Backman
#26. The momentary darkness gave way to scores of small glowing lights. Blaise stepped into a candlelit room filled with people and furniture.
'Where are we?" he asked Livia. "How can a whole other room be here? There were only two rooms on the top floor. - Author: Teresa Flavin
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Teresa Flavin
#27. Part of me must have really wanted to believe
like a child hearing, in perfect safety, a tale of horror
that the unconscious would be like any other room, once the light was let in. That the dark shapes would resolve only into toy horses and Biedermeyer furniture. That therapy could tame it after all, bring it into society with no fear of its someday reverting. I wanted to believe, despite everything my life had been. Can you imagine? - Author: Thomas Pynchon
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#28. It is very important that you should choose the person you will marry and stay with that person. There are many people now who believe in serial love, loving one person after another. I don't think that is good for our mental health. I think we should get it over with. Love is like measles, you know. You only get it once in your lifetime and you are immune forever. I am very happy to say that is what happened to me. I am completely immune to any temptation. All men who have passed my life after I got married might as well have been sticks of furniture. - Author: Miriam
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Miriam
#29. I cannot but feel compassion when I hear some trig, compact-looking man, seemingly free, all girded and ready, speak of his 'furniture,' as whether it is insured or not. 'But what shall I do with my furniture?' ... It would surpass the powers of a well man nowadays to take up his bed and walk, and I should certainly advise a sick one to lay down his bed and run. - Author: Henry David Thoreau
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#30. 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 - Author: Madeleine L'Engle
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#31. What does one save for, anyhow? For a few tired hours at the end of life when one sits and counts dollars? Or do we save so that those last years will not be mentally barren or esthetically shabby? I try to save a few things to furnish my mind decently, on the theory that no auctioneer can get in there to sell off all the furniture. - Author: Margaret Culkin Banning
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Margaret Culkin Banning
#32. Ordinary life does not interest me. I seek only the high moments. I am in accord with the surrealists, searching for the marvelous. I want to be a writer who reminds others that these moments exist; I want to prove that there is infinite space, infinite meaning, infinite dimension. But I am not always in what I call a state of grace. I have days of illuminations and fevers. I have days when the music in my head stops. Then I mend socks, prune trees, can fruits, polish furniture. But while I am doing this I feel I am not living. - Author: Anais Nin
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Anais Nin
#33. They saw themselves as rear-guard individualists, making a last-ditch stand against the twentieth century. They gave thanks loudly from morn till eve that they had escaped the soul
destroying commercialism of the city. They were tacky and cheerful and defiantly bohemian, tirelessly inquisitive about each other's doings, and boundlessly tolerant. When they fought, at least it was with fists and bottles and furniture, not lawyers. - Author: Christopher Isherwood
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Christopher Isherwood
#34. he invited Sylvia to dine with him somewhere where they were going to have something fabulous and very nasty at about two guineas the ounce on the menu. Something like that! And during dinner Sir John had entertained her by singing the praises of her husband. He said that Tietjens was much too great a gentleman to be wasted on the old-furniture trade: that was why he hadn't persisted. But he sent by Sylvia a message to the effect that if ever Tietjens did come to be in want of money . . . Occasionally Sylvia was worried - Author: Ford Madox Ford
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Ford Madox Ford
#35. Carved with figures strange and sweet, All made out of the carver's brain. - Author: Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#36. As a child, I read a great many books in which animals and birds played significant roles, not only in the narrative itself, but also in creating the emotional and psychological atmosphere of that narrative - the imaginative furniture, as it were, in which any story unfolds. - Author: John Burnside
Biltwell Furniture quotes by John Burnside
#37. As long as you are black, and you're gonna be black till the day you die, no one's gonna call you by your goddamn name. So no matter what you are called, nigger, you just let it roll off your back like water, and you'll make it. Just pretend you're a goddamn piece of furniture.[To hi chauffer Robert Parker, when Parker said he'd prefer to be referred to by his name rather than "boy," "nigger" or "chief."] - Author: Lyndon B. Johnson
Biltwell Furniture quotes by Lyndon B. Johnson
#38. Rearranging furniture, adding some candles, or making even small tweaks can really make the difference. - Author: Anthea Turner
