What is dry land?

Famous quotes containing the words land and/or dry:

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

    The sea was wet as wet could be,
    The sands were dry as dry.
    You could not see a cloud, because
    No cloud was in the sky:
    No birds were flying overhead—
    There were no birds to fly.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
