Famous quotes containing the words tower and/or shot:

    With the noise of the mourning of the Swattish nation!
    Fallen is at length
    Its tower of strength;
    Its sun is dimmed ere it had nooned;
    Dead lies the great Ahkoond,
    The great Ahkoond of Swat
    Is not!
    George Thomas Lanigan (1845–1886)

    You know, it’s a savage country, really. That’s the second one they shot in twenty years. It’s uncivilized—shooting people of substance.
    David Webb Peoples, screenwriter. English Bob (Richard Harris)
