Famous quotes containing the word torrent:

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

    Mixed in one mighty torrent did appear,
    Some flying from the thing they feared, and some
    Seeking the object of another’s fear;
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    The flies swarmed on the putrid vulva, then
    A black tumbling rout would seethe
    Of maggots, thick like a torrent in a glen....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
