Famous quotes containing the word torrent:

    From a distance the rushing of the torrent delights and uplifts us, but it rocks us in a flimsy boat, we are overwhelmed by despair. The same applies to danger.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)

    Broke shadow into all its parts,
    What then had been of shadow made
    Found exigence in fits and starts....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    A black tumbling rout would seethe
    Of maggots, thick like a torrent in a glen....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
