From History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella, Volume One, by William Prescott


"The Arabians came like a torrent, sweeping down and obliterating even the land-marks of former civilization, but bringing with it a fertilizing principle, which, as the waters receded, gave new life and loveliness to the landscape."

From Chapter VIII, The Spanish Arabs
