Then There Were Doors

I've always been fascinated by doors, doorways even before arriving in Malta. But the walk had given plenty of opportunities to capture them. I will have to warn you that these are not fancy, lavish doors. They are simple doors that were replete with character. Here are some doors I saw and some of my fave door quotes/funnies.

I went down the street to the 24-hour grocery. When I got there, the guy was locking the front door. I said, 'Hey, the sign says you're open 24 hours.' He said, 'Yes, but not in a row.' - Steven Wright

If you shut the door to all errors, truth will be shut out. - Rabindranath Tagore

Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world will be clean. -Johann Wolfgang Van Goethe

The closing of a door can bring blessed privacy and comfort - the opening, terror. Conversely, the closing of a door can be a sad and final thing - the opening a wonderfully joyous moment. - Andy Rooney

Vice came in always at the door of necessity, not at the door of inclination. - Daniel Defoe.

Teach Mary hosts WINDOW VIEWS AND DOORS TOO. This is my entry for this week.

Your door photos are wonderful, each unique and lovely in its own way. I love the "24 hour" statement. LOL

a wonderful collection of doors. the little gates in front of #2 and #5 intrigue me though.

Pietro said...

A very nice sequence of doors. All interesting, each one in its own way.

I like all of these! Each unique. Love the charming quotes too. That first one looks more like the entryway to a club, not a market! It's probably a "mini meat market" after dark!! Thanks for visiting my door.
