Famous quotes containing the words surface and/or land:

    All the aspects of this desert are beautiful, whether you behold it in fair weather or foul, or when the sun is just breaking out after a storm, and shining on its moist surface in the distance, it is so white, and pure, and level, and each slight inequality and track is so distinctly revealed; and when your eyes slide off this, they fall on the ocean.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    In the hollow Lotos land to live and lie reclined
    On the hills like Gods together, careless of mankind.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
