Famous quotes containing the word thomson:

    The savage soul of game is up at once—
    The pack full-opening various, the shrill horn
    Resounded from the hills, the neighing steed
    Wild for the chase, and the loud hunter’s shout—
    O’er a weak, harmless, flying creature, all
    Mixed in mad tumult and discordant joy.
    —James Thomson (1700–1748)

    When Britain first, at Heaven’s command,
    Arose from out the azure main,
    This was the charter of her land,
    And guardian angels sung the strain:
    Rule, Britannia! Britannia rules the waves!
    Britons never shall be slaves.
    —James Thomson (1700–1748)

    The street-lamps burn amidst the baleful glooms,
    Amidst the soundless solitudes immense
    Of ranged mansions dark and still as tombs.
    —James Thomson (1834–1882)
