And the Raven, never flitting.
Still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas
Just above my chamber door;
And his eyes have all the seeming
Of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamplight over him streaming
Throws his shadow on the floor.
And my soul from out that shadow,
That lies floating on the floor,
Shall be lifted - nevermore. [ Poe ]

Is but an upper chamber to a tomb;
No spot on earth but has supplied a grave,
And human skulls the spacious ocean pave. [ Young ]

A chamber deaf to noise, and blind to light;
A rosy garland, and a weary head. [ Sir Philip Sidney ]

He capers nimbly in a lady's chamber,
To the lascivious pleasing of a lute. [ William Shakespeare, Richard III ]

Science is a first-rate piece of furniture for a man's upper chamber if he has common-sense on the ground-floor. But if a man has not got plenty of good common-sense, the more science he has the worse for his patient. [ Oliver Wendell Holmes ]
The grave is a sacred workshop of nature! a chamber for the figure of the body; death and life dwell here together as man and wife. They are one body, they are in union; God has joined them together, and what God hath joined together let no man put asunder. [ Hippel ]
