Top Shutting Doors Quotes

Shutting Doors Quotes By Elizabeth Goudge

The Eliots found it a queer sort of evening - a transition evening. Hitherto the Herb of Grace had been to them a summer home; they had known it only permeated with sun and light, flower-scented, windows and doors open wide. But now doors were shut, curtains drawn to hide the sad, grey dusk. Instead of the lap of the water against the river wall they heard the whisper of the flames, and instead of the flowers in the garden they smelt the roasting chestnuts, burning apple logs, the oil lamps, polish - all the home smells. This intimacy with the house was deepening; when winter came it would be deeper still. Nadine glanced over her shoulder at the firelight gleaming upon the dark wood of the panelling, at the shadows gathering in the corners, and marvelled to see how the old place seemed to have shrunk in size with the shutting out of the daylight. It seemed gathering them in, holding them close. — Elizabeth Goudge

Shutting Doors Quotes By Brian D. McLaren

As a committed Christian, I have always struggled with locked doors - doors by which we on the inside lock out "the others" - Jews, Muslims, Mormons, liberals, doubters, agnostics, gay folks, whomever.

Shutting Doors Quotes By Graham Norton

Shutting Doors Quotes By Donna Cooner

Shutting Doors Quotes By Madeleine L'Engle

For that moment, at least, all our doors and windows were wide open; we were not carefully shutting out God's purifying light, in order to feel safe and secure; we were bathed in the same light that burned and yet did not consume the bush. We walked barefoot on holy ground. — Madeleine L'Engle

Shutting Doors Quotes By Enid Bagnold

By seven o'clock even the long corridor was as dim as the alley outside. No one thought of shutting the windows - I doubt whether they will shut...and the fog rolled over the sill in banks and round the open glass doors, till even the white cap of a Sister could hardly be seen as she passed. — Enid Bagnold

Shutting Doors Quotes By Virginia Woolf

Here we slept," she says.
And he adds, "Kisses without number."

"In the garden -"

"In winter snowtime -"
The doors go shutting far in the distance, gently knocking like the pulse of a heart. — Virginia Woolf

Shutting Doors Quotes By Joan Didion

After that he would leave for a while, breaking things as he went, slamming doors to kick them open, picking up decanters to hurl at mirrors, detouring by way of chairs to smash them against the floor. Always when he came back he would sleep in their room, shutting the door against her. Rigid with self-pity she would lie in another room, wishing for the will to leave. Each believed the other a murderer of time, a destroyer of life itself. — Joan Didion

Shutting Doors Quotes By John Berger

The heart of Paris is like nothing so much as the unending interior of a house. Buildings become furniture, courtyards become carpets and arrases, the streets are like galleries, the boulevards conservatories. It is a house, one or two centuries old, rich, bourgeois, distinguished. The only way of going out, or shutting the door behind you, is to leave the centre. — John Berger
