Famous quotes containing the words tower and/or wind:

    Out in Hollywood, where the streets are paved with Goldwyn, the word “sophisticate” means, very simply, “obscene.” A sophisticated story is a dirty story. Some of that meaning was wafted eastward and got itself mixed up into the present definition. So that a “sophisticate” means: one who dwells in a tower made of a DuPont substitute for ivory and holds a glass of flat champagne in one hand and an album of dirty post cards in the other.
    Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)

    Only when we break the mirror and climb into our vision,
    only when we are the wind together streaming and singing,
    only in the dream we become with our bones for spears,
    we are real at last
    and wake.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)
