Famous quotes containing the words tower and/or south:

    Culture is a sham if it is only a sort of Gothic front put on an iron building—like Tower Bridge—or a classical front put on a steel frame—like the Daily Telegraph building in Fleet Street. Culture, if it is to be a real thing and a holy thing, must be the product of what we actually do for a living—not something added, like sugar on a pill.
    Eric Gill (1882–1940)

    The white gulls south of Victoria
    catch tossed crumbs in midair.
    When anyone hears the Catbird
    he gets lonesome.
    Gary Snyder (b. 1930)
