Quotes of the Morning: Here Comes the Rain Again

“HURRICANE, n. An atmospheric demonstration once very common but now generally abandoned for the tornado and cyclone. The hurricane is still in popular use in the West Indies and is preferred by certain old-fashioned sea-captains."
-Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary

"They sicken of the calm, who know the storm."
-Dorothy Parker

"The height of human wisdom is . . . to make a calm within, under the weight of the greatest storm without."
-Daniel Defoe

"The wise man in the storm prays God, not for safety from danger, but for deliverance from fear."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

"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

“The Quotes of the Morning will be taking a few days off. Mrs. Skippy’s grandfather (husband of her grandmother who passed away a few months ago) died this weekend, and we’ll be off seeing family. Any prayers to whatever deity you may happen to believe in would be greatly appreciated. The Quotes should return on Thursday.”

“Here comes the rain again

Raining in my head like a tragedy
Tearing me apart like a new emotion”
-Eurythmics, Here Comes the Rain Again
