who's that knocking at my door?

A door is a panel or barrier, usually hinged, sliding, or electronic, that is used to cover an opening in a wall or partition going into a building or space. A door can be opened to give access and closed more or less securely.

Doors also have an aesthetic role in creating an impression of what lies beyond. They are also used to screen areas of a building for aesthetic purposes, keeping formal and utility areas separate. They act as a barrier to noise.

Doors are often symbolically endowed with ritual purposes, and the guarding or receiving of the keys to a door, or being granted access to a door can have special significance. Similarly, doors and doorways frequently appear in metaphorical or allegorical situations, literature and the arts, often as a portent of change.

"The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live." - Flora Whittemore

"There's a door. Where does it go? It stays where it is, I think." - Terry Pratchett

"If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite." - William Blake

"All doors open to courtesy" - Thomas Fuller

"It is often the last key on the ring which opens the door." - Proverb

"Don't ever slam a door; you might want to go back." - Don Herold

"Men shut their doors against a setting sun." - William Shakespeare

"Aunt Marion was right... Never marry a musician and never answer the door." - Charles M. Schulz

"We often get in quicker by the back door than by the front" - Napoleon Bonaparte

"Ten men waiting for me at the door? Send one of them home, I'm tired." - Mae West
