I wield the flail of the lashing hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder.
O lyric Love, half angel and half bird And all a wonder and a wild desire, Boldest of hearts that ever braved the sun, Took sanctuary within the holier blue, And sang a kindred soul out to his face, Yet human at the red-ripe of the heart When the first summons from the darkling earth Reached thee amid thy chambers, blanched their blue, And bared them of the glory to drop down, To toil for man, to suffer or to die, This is the same voice: can thy soul know change? Hail then, and hearken from the realms of help!Robert Browning

Hail! Philadelphia, tho' Quaker thou be, The birth-day of medical honors to thee In this country belongs; 'twas thou caught the flame, That crossing the ocean from Englishmen came And kindled the fires of Wisdom and Knowledge, Inspired the student, erected a college, First held a commencement with suitable state, In the year of our Lord, seventeen sixty-eight.William Todd Helmuth, The Story of a City Doctor, reported in Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations (1922), p. 594.
Hail! to the victors valiant / Hail! to the conqu'ring heroes / Hail! Hail! to Michigan, / The champions of the West!Louis Elbel, "The Victors" (1898), the University's fight song

I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers, From the seas and the streams; I bear light shade for the leaves when laid In their noonday dreams. From my wings are shaken the dews that waken The sweet buds every one, When rocked to rest on their mother's breast, As she dances about the sun. I wield the flail of the lashing Hail, And whiten the green plains under, And then again I dissolve it in rain, And laugh as I pass in thunder.Percy Bysshe Shelley
"Whose name was writ in water!" What large laughter Among the immortals when that word was brought! Then when his fiery spirit rose flaming after, High toward the topmost heaven of heavens up-caught! "All Hail! our younger brother!" Shakespeare said, And Dante nodded his imperial head.richard watson gilder
Today there is a wide measure of agreement, which on the physical side of science approaches almost to unanimity, that the stream of knowledge is heading towards a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears as an accidental intruder into the realm of matter; we are beginning to suspect that we ought rather to Hail it as a creator and governor of the realm of matter...james jeans
