F. Scott Fitzgerald Quotes: The Windows Were Ajar And Gleaming White

The Windows Were Ajar And Gleaming White Against The Fresh Grass Outside That Seemed To Grow A Little Way Into The House. A Breeze Blew Through The Room, Blew Curtains In At One End And Out The Other Like Pale Flags, Twisting Them Up Toward The Frosted Wedding-cake Of The Ceiling, And Then Rippled Over The Wine-colored Rug, Making A Shadow On It As Wind Does On The Sea. The Only Completely Stationary Object In The Room Was An Enormous Couch On Which Two Young Women Were Buoyed Up As Though Upon An Anchored Balloon. They Were Both In White, And Their Dresses Were Rippling And Fluttering As If They Had Just Been Blown Back In After A Short Flight Around The House.
