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 .
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
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!
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
Shall gods be said to thump the clouds When clouds are cursed by thunder?
Thought can never capture the movement of life, it is much too slow. It is like lightning and thunder. They occur simultaneously, but sound, travelling slower than light, reaches you later, creating the illusion of two separate events.u. g. krishnamurti
They hear like ocean on a western beachThe surge and thunder of the Odyssey.Andrew Lang
The flash of his keen, black eyes Forerunning the thunder.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Her hair reminds of a warm, safe place Where as a child I'd hide, And wait for the thunder and the rain To quietly pass me by.Guns N' Roses
The highest and most lofty trees have the most reason to dread the thunder.
On a sudden open fly With impetuous recoil and jarring sound Th' infernal doors, and on their hinges grate Harsh thunder.john milton
Thy thunder, conscious of the new command, Rumbles reluctant o'er our fallen house.john keats
The thunder, Wing'd with red lightning and impetuous rage, Perhaps hath spent his shafts, and ceases now To bellow through the vast and boundless deep.john milton
