When shall we three meet again In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
When I read Shakespeare I am struck with wonder That such trivial people should muse and thunder In such lovely language.
I asked you to be the thunder and lightning of Desert Storm.You were all of that and more.H. Norman Schwarzkopf
See how the rascals use me! They will not let my play run; and yet they steal my thunder.john dennis
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.
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
I will tell you what this people need, with regard to preaching; you need, figuratively, to have it rain pitchforks, tines downwards, from this pulpit, Sunday after Sunday. Instead of the smooth, beautiful, sweet, still, silk-velvet-lipped preaching, you should have sermons like peals of thunder, and perhaps we then can get the scales from our eyes. This style is necessary in order to save many of this people.Brigham Young
The East bow'd low before the blast, In patient, deep disdain. She let the legions thunder past, And plunged in thought again.Matthew Arnold
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
Nay, in death's hand, the grape-stone proves As strong as thunder is in Jove's.Abraham Cowley
Island of bliss! amid the subject Seas, That thunder round thy rocky coasts, set up, At once the wonder, terror, and delight Of distant nations; whose remotest shore Can soon be shaken by thy naval arm; Not to be shook thyself, but all assaults Baffling, like thy hoar cliffs the loud sea-wave.james thomson
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
See how the rascals use me! They will not let my play run; and yet they steal my thunder.
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
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
When magic through nerves and reason passes, imagination, force, and passion will thunder. The portrait of the world is changed.
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
NATURE is what we see, The Hill, the Afternoon Squirrel, Eclipse, the Bumble-bee, Nay Nature is Heaven. Nature is what we hear, The Bobolink, the Sea thunder, the Cricket Nay, Nature is Harmony. Nature is what we know But have no art to say, So impotent our wisdom is To Her simplicity.
