Famous quotes containing the words towers and/or cooling:

    Britannia needs no bulwarks,
    No towers along the steep;
    Her march is o’er the mountain-waves,
    Her home is on the deep.
    Thomas Campbell (1774–1844)

    So God stepped over to the edge of the world
    And He spat out the seven seas;
    He batted His eyes, and the lightnings flashed;
    He clapped His hands, and the thunders rolled;
    And the waters above the earth came down,
    The cooling waters came down.
    James Weldon Johnson (1871–1938)
