Famous quotes containing the word thomson:

    See, Winter comes, to rule the varied year,
    Sullen, and sad, with all his rising train;
    Vapours, and clouds, and storms. Be these my theme,
    These, that exalt the soul to solemn thought,
    And heavenly musing. Welcome, kindred glooms!
    Congenial horrors, hail!
    —James Thomson (1700–1748)

    And all sad scenes and thoughts and feelings vanish
    In that sweet sleep no power can ever banish,
    That one best sleep which never wakes again.
    —James Thomson (1834–1882)

    The City is of Night; perchance of Death,
    But certainly of Night; for never there
    Can come the lucid morning’s fragrant breath
    After the dewy dawning’s cold grey air;
    —James Thomson (1834–1882)
