I'm not sure if this is where I should be asking this.. But it seemed to be the most appropriate community on StackExchange.

Anyways, I'm setting up a Google+ page for a small business that does window cleaning. As a first post, I want to post a nice photo of a window that they sent me, and accompany it with a nice quote that has to do with windows. This is one I found:

“Set wide the window. Let me drink the day.”

It's a quote from Edith Wharton in a book she wrote or something.

Now, I take it to mean, very simply, that someone wants to open their window wide and enjoy the view.

My question: Is that the meaning of the quote? Does it mean anything deeper? Mostly I just don't want to embarrass myself by posting that and then realizing it has some totally different meaning.


You've got it right. It means what it sounds like.
