The lips of the wise are as the doors of a cabinet; no sooner are they opened, but treasures are poured out before thee.
There is this strange fog of being a young man that I would refer to as soft time. Time does not go forward there. It's a series of doors that kind of wind back into one another, like a series of doors in the upper floor of a house. You revisit the same lessons over and over again, or you choose to ignore them.
Listen, real poetry doesn't say anything; it just ticks off the possibilities. Opens all doors. You can walk through any one that suits you.
Love unlocks doors and opens windows that weren't even there before.
Burst down those closet doors once and for all, and stand up and start to fight.

One is struck in the study of saints, angels and gods by a pattern that seems quaint and harmless. Yet, it is so common that I know there must be a deeper meaning. There always seem to be guardians and spirits of doors, bridges, exits and entranceways.
There is going to be a hundred thousand doors slammed in your face before one opens, so feel ok about taking rejection.

William J. Clinton

I am, by nature, an honest person. I wear my emotions on my sleeve. There is no 'behind closed doors' with me.
Stand-up can take you in so many different places, man. So many doors can be opened up from stand-up comedy, and the first one that was opened up for me was acting. But you can go from acting to being a TV personality to being a radio personality to being a writer to being a producer, to just being a visionary, to voiceover work.
No one else has ever opened doors for me. I opened them myself.
I'll work overtime to open the doors of opportunity to industry and commerce.
It's an exciting life. I don't know where God is leading us. I just know that He opens doors and He closes the doors, and it is always the best for us.

All doors open to courtesy.
Theater in New York is nearer to the street. In London, you have to go deep into the building, usually, to reach the place where theater happens. On Broadway, only the fire doors separate you from the sidewalk, and you're lucky if the sound of a police car doesn't rip the envelope twice a night.
You may live in an imperfect world but the frontiers are not closed and the doors are not all shut.

I remember standing there with my mum and dad, thinking, 'Oh my God, I know whose door this is, and I'll have to see them on Monday.' It was terrible.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
