Famous quotes containing the words severe and/or weather:

    One should not be too severe on English novels; they are the only relaxation of the intellectually unemployed.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    Whenever the weather licks the pilot instead of him lickin’ the weather, he’s finished. The first time makes the second time easier. And the first thing he knows, he’s in trouble when the weather is perfect.
    Frank W. Wead (1895?–1947)
