When shall we three meet again In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
thunder is good , thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work .
So distinguished by a Divine wisdom, power, and goodness, are God's works of creation and providence, that all nature, by the gentle voices of her skies and streams, of her fields and forests, as well as by the roar of breakers, the crash of thunder, the rumbling earthquake, the fiery volcano, and the destroying hurricane, echoes the closing sentences of this angel hymn, Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, the whole earth is full of His glory!
Natural thunder heralds the wetness of fresh water high clouds to quench the thirst of fields gone dry and parched, a messenger of blessed rain, but this was as dry as hell must be. My distraught perception refused to believe it, because of the insane suddenness with which it sounded, swelled and hit, and how casually it came to murder my child.anna akhmatova
Loud roared the dreadful thunder, The rain a deluge showers.andrew cherry
He says NO! in thunder; but the Devil himself cannot make him say yes. For all men who say yes, lie; and all men who say no, why, they are in the happy condition of judicious, unencumbered travellers in Europe; they cross the frontiers into Eternity with nothing but a carpet bag.Herman Melville
The big, shoe-thumping fellow continues as a dark thunderhead to threaten all unrepentant non-Communists with hail and thunder.dag hammarskjöld
What! Think you that my flashes show meOnly in lightnings to excel?Believe me, friends, you do not know me,For I can thunder quite as well.Heinrich Heine
thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.mark twain
...in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquillity will return again.Anne Frank
They now to fight are gone; Armor on armor shone: Drum now to drum did groan, To hear was wonder; That with the cries they make, The very earth did shake; Trumpet to trumpet spake, thunder to thunder.Michael Drayton
Some might say that sunshine follows thunder / Go and tell it to the man who cannot shine / Some might say that we should never ponder / On our thoughts today 'cos they hold sway over timeSome might say / We will find a brighter daySome might say they don't believe in heaven / Go and tell it to the man who lives in hell" *Noel Gallagher
I have learned to prize the quiet, lightning deed, not the applauding thunder at its heels that men call fame.
His nature is too noble for the world: He would not flatter Neptune for his trident, Or Jove for's power to thunder.william shakespeare
Twere better far That gods should quaff their nectar merrily, And men sing out the day like grasshoppers, So may they haply lull the watchful thunder.hartley coleridge
You can tear a poem apart to see what makes it technically tick...You're back with the mystery of having been moved by words. The best craftsmanship always leaves holes and gaps in the works of the poem so that something that is not in the poem can creep, crawl, flash or thunder in.thomas adam
The sky is now indelible ink, The branches reft asunder; But you and I we do not shrink; We love the lovely thunder.ogden nash
When it is peace, then we may view again With new-won eyes each other's truer form And wonder. Grown more loving-kind and warm We'll grasp firm hands and laugh at the old pain When it is peace. But until peace, the storm The darkness and the thunder and the rain.Charles Sorley
