Famous quotes containing the words moderate, tropical and/or storm:
“One will seldom go wrong in attributing extreme actions to vanity, moderate ones to habit, and petty ones to fear.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“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 (18031882)
“Why now, blow wind, swell billow, and swim bark!
The storm is up, and all is on the hazard.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
