Famous quotes containing the words twin and/or towers:

    We live under continual threat of two equally fearful, but seemingly opposed, destinies: unremitting banality and inconceivable terror. It is fantasy, served out in large rations by the popular arts, which allows most people to cope with these twin specters.
    Susan Sontag (b. 1933)

    Britannia needs no bulwarks,
    No towers along the steep;
    Her march is o’er the mountain-waves,
    Her home is on the deep.
    Thomas Campbell (1774–1844)
