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

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
I asked you to be the thunder and lightning of Desert Storm.You were all of that and more.H. Norman Schwarzkopf
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
You will hear thunder and remember me, And think: she wanted storms. The rim Of the sky will be the colour of hard crimson, And your heart, as it was then, will be on fire.anna akhmatova
Marxism is a revolutionary worldview that must always struggle for new revelations. Marxism must abhor nothing so much as the possibility that it becomes congealed in its current form. It is at its best when butting heads in self-criticism, and in historical thunder and lightning, it retains its strength.rosa luxemburg
Is there not some chosen curse, Some hidden thunder in the stores of heaven, Red with uncommon wrath, to blast the man Who owes his greatness to his country's ruin?joseph addison
The flash of his keen, black eyes Forerunning the thunder.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The highest and most lofty trees have the most reason to dread the thunder.
The sky is changed! and such a change! O night, And storm, and darkness, ye are wondrous strong, Yet lovely in your strength, as is the light Of a dark eye in woman! Far along, From peak to peak the rattling crags among Leaps the live thunder!lord byron
Thy thunder, conscious of the new command, Rumbles reluctant o'er our fallen house.john keats
Then the omnipotent Father with his thunder made Olympus tremble, and from Ossa hurled Pelion.Alexander Pope
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
The song birds are the sweetest In Kentucky; The thoroughbreds are fleetest In Kentucky; Mountains tower proudest, thunder peals the loudest, The landscape is the grandest And politics the damnedest In Kentucky.
