What is hurricane season?

Famous quotes containing the words season and/or hurricane:

    The instincts of merry England lingered on here with exceptional vitality, and the symbolic customs which tradition has attached to each season of the year were yet a reality on Egdon. Indeed, the impulses of all such outlandish hamlets are pagan still: in these spots homage to nature, self-adoration, frantic gaieties, fragments of Teutonic rites to divinities whose names are forgotten, seem in some way or other to have survived mediaeval doctrine.
    Thomas Hardy (1840–1928)

    Thought and beauty, like a hurricane or waves, should not know conventional, delimited forms.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
