Famous quotes containing the words tropical and/or storm:

    Physical force has no value, where there is nothing else. Snow in snow-banks, fire in volcanoes and solfataras is cheap. The luxury of ice is in tropical countries, and midsummer days. The luxury of fire is, to have a little on our hearth; and of electricity, not the volleys of the charged cloud, but the manageable stream on the battery-wires. So of spirit, or energy; the rests or remains of it in the civil and moral man, are worth all the cannibals in the Pacific.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    And true, they are hurling spittle, rock,
    Garbage and fruit in Little Rock.
    And I saw coiling storm a-writhe
    On bright madonnas. And a scythe
    Of men harassing brownish girls.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
