Tropical Storm

Famous quotes containing the words tropical and/or storm:

    Then the bowsprit got mixed with the rudder sometimes:
    A thing, as the Bellman remarked,
    That frequently happens in tropical climes
    When a vessel is, so to speak, “snarked.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    Hail, Columbia! happy land!
    Hail, ye heroes! heaven-born band!
    Who fought and bled in Freedom’s cause,
    Who fought and bled in Freedom’s cause,
    And when the storm of war was gone,
    Enjoyed the peace your valor won.
    Let independence be our boast,
    Ever mindful what it cost;
    Joseph Hopkinson (1770–1842)
