storms Quotes

Six of the best book quotes about storms
  1. #1
    “If by your art, my dearest father, you have
    Put the wild waters in this roar, allay them.”
  2. #2
    The storm had now definitely abated, and what thunder there was now grumbled over more distant hills, like a man saying ‘And another thing...’ twenty minutes after admitting he’d lost the argument.
  3. #3
    “When we are staggered by the chilly winds of adversity and battered by the raging storms of disappointment and when through our folly and sin we stray into some destructive far country and are frustrated because of the strange feeling of homesickness, we need to know that there is Someone who loves us, cares for us, understands us, and will give us another chance.”
  4. #4
    Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! Rage, blow!
    You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout
    Till you have drenched our steeples, drowned the cocks.
    You sulph’rous and thought-executing fires,
    Vaunt-couriers of oak-cleaving thunderbolts,
    Singe my white head.
  5. #5
    “The wind came back with triple fury, and put out the light for the last time. They sat in company with the others in other shanties, their eyes straining against crude walls and their souls asking if He meant to measure their puny might against His. They seemed to be staring at the dark, but their eyes were watching God.”
  6. #6
    “It woke up old Okechobee and the monster began to rollin his bed. Began to roll and complain like a peevish world on a grumble. The folks in the quarters and the people in the big houses further around the shore heard the big lake and wondered. The people felt uncomfortable but safe because there were the seawalls to chain the senseless monster in his bed. The folks let the people do the thinking. If the castles thought themselves secure, the cabins needn’t worry. Their decision was already made as always. Chink up your cracks, shiver in your wet beds and wait on the mercy on Lord. The bossman might have the thing stopped before morning anyway. ”
