When Pearse summoned Cuchulain to his side, What stalked through the Post Office? What intellect, What calculation, number, measurement, replied? We Irish, born into that ancient sect But thrown upon this filthy modern tide And by its formless spawning fury wrecked, Climb to our proper dark, that we may trace The lineaments of a plummet-measured face.
My galligaskins, that have long withstood The winter's fury, and encroaching frosts, By time subdued (what will not time subdue!) An horrid chasm disclosed.

Great fury, like great whisky, requires long fermentation.truman capote
A starlit or a moonlit dome disdains All that man is, All mere complexities The fury and the mire of human veins.
Whoever imposes severe punishment becomes repulsive to the people; while he who awards mild punishment becomes contemptible. But whoever imposes punishment as deserved becomes respectable. For punishment when awarded with due consideration, makes the people devoted to righteousness and to works productive of wealth and enjoyment; while punishment, when ill-awarded under the influence of greed and anger or owing to ignorance, excites fury even among hermits and ascetics dwelling in forests, not to speak of householders.chanakya
Unto Thee, O Lord, the Soul of Creation cried:"For whom didst Thou create me, and who so fashioned me?Feuds and fury, violence and the insolence of might have oppressed me;None have I to protect me save Thee;Command for me then the blessings of a settled, peaceful life."zoroaster
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
I never saw Such noble fury in so poor a thing; Such precious deeds in one that promis'd nought But beggary and poor looks.william shakespeare
(Dworkin's statements quoted:) Her own experiences - as a rape victim, a prostitute and a battered wife - only added to the trenchancy of her views, but she reacted with fury to suggestions that such traumas had made it difficult for her to be objective. "I've never heard Solzhenitsyn asked if he can be objective about the gulag," she snarled. "As if not paying attention to rape and wife battery were some kind of objectivity."Andrea Dworkin
In this day and age, we need to revise the old saying to read, "Hell hath no fury like a bureaucrat scorned."Milton Friedman
Marx set out to resolve the contradictions and to correct the errors in classical political economy. In this he thought he had succeeded very well. Judging by the sound and the fury of the controversy surrounding his interpretations, he either succeeded too well or deluded himself to the success of his enterprise.david harvey
In thy face I see thy fury: if I longer stay We shall begin our ancient bickerings.william shakespeare
Naples sitteth by the sea , keystone of an arch of azure, Crowned by consenting nations peerless queen of gayety : She laugheth at the wrath of Ocean , she mocketh the fury of Vesuvius, She spurneth disease, and misery , and famine, that crowd her sunny streets.
Heav'n has no rage, like love to hatred turn'd. Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorn'd.william congreve
Out, out, brief candle! Life 's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing .
I do oppose My patience to his fury, and am arm'd To suffer, with a quietness of spirit, The very tyranny and rage of his.william shakespeare

This music crept by me upon the waters, allaying both their fury and my passion with its sweet air.william shakespeare
Hell hath no fury like a man embarrassed by a woman.
Alas! what boots it with incessant care To tend the homely slighted shepherd's trade, And strictly meditate the thankless Muse? Were it not better done as others use, To sport with Amaryllis in the shade, Or with the tangles of Neaera's hair?
