"I don't say embraced, for that would be misleading; I felt more that I was grasped, and powerless in those colossal arms...For as far as the imagination could wing its way there was nothing but miles of sand and dunes, like waves of a vast soundless ocean stilled in the very moment of their wildest upheaval."

(Wilfred Thesiger, Arabian Sands)
