Famous quotes containing the words buildings and/or tallest:
“The desert is a natural extension of the inner silence of the body. If humanitys language, technology, and buildings are an extension of its constructive faculties, the desert alone is an extension of its capacity for absence, the ideal schema of humanitys disappearance.”
—Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929)
“But not the tallest there, tis said,
Could fathom to this ponds black bed.”
—Edmund Blunden (18961974)
