Sliding Block

Famous quotes containing the words sliding and/or block:

    With these I would be.
    And with water: the waves coming forward, without cessation,
    The waves, altered by sand-bars, beds of kelp, miscellaneous
    driftwood,
    Topped by cross-winds, tugged at by sinuous undercurrents
    The tide rustling in, sliding between the ridges of stone,
    The tongues of water, creeping in, quietly.
    Theodore Roethke (1908–1963)

    The skyscraper establishes the block, the block creates the street, the street offers itself to man.
    Roland Barthes (1915–1980)
