this solemn, sailless, tintless lake, reposing within its rim of yellow hills and low, steep banks, and looking just as expressionless
and unpoetical (when we leave its sublime history out of the question,) as any metropolitan reservoir in Christendom -- if these
things are not food for rock me to sleep, mother, none exist, I think. Twain, Mark, The Innocents Abroad; or, The New Pilgrims' Progress, 1869.
