Richelle E. Goodrich
“I hate it when storm clouds roll in, heralded by dazzling claps of thunder and lightning that boast an ocean of tears.

Richelle E. Goodrich, Smile Anyway

Neil Gaiman
“I took the dog out for a walk tonight, and together we wandered across the meadow next door. It was a warm summer's night, dark, and moonless. There were a handful of fireflies flickering intermittently, some so close to me I could see they were burning green as they flew, and some further away, who seemed to be flashing white.

And in the sky above them a continual roil of distant summer lightning (the storm distant enough that it was silent) burned and flashed and illuminated the clouds. It seemed as if the lightning bugs were talking to the lightning, in a perfect call and response of flash and counterflash. I watched the sky and the meadow flash and flash while the dog walked ahead of me, and realised that I was perfectly happy...”
Neil Gaiman

Emily Brontë
“As different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire.”

“SOWING LIGHTNING

Seize
Bolts of lightning from the sky
And plant them in fields of life.

They will grow like tender sprouts of fire.
Charge somber thoughts
With unexpected flash,
You, my lightning in the soil!”
Visar Zhiti, The Condemned Apple: Selected Poetry

Jeri Smith-Ready
“Go ahead, God, you fat, filthy motherfucker, lightning-bolt my ass into oblivion if you're so tough!”
Jeri Smith-Ready, Requiem for the Devil

Charlotte Brontë
“At that time, I well remember whatever could excite - certain accidents of the weather, for instance, were almost dreaded by me, because they woke the being I was always lulling, and stirred up a craving cry I could not satisfy. One night a thunder-storm broke; a sort of hurricane shook us in our beds: the Catholics rose in panic and prayed to their saints. As for me, the tempest took hold of me with tyranny: I was roughly roused and obliged to live. I got up and dressed myself, and creeping outside the basement close by my bed, sat on its ledge, with my feet on the roof of a lower adjoining building. It was wet, it was wild, it was pitch dark. Within the dormitory they gathered round the night-lamp in consternation, praying loud. I could not go in: too resistless was the delight of staying with the wild hour, black and full of thunder, pealing out such an ode as language never delivered to man - too terribly glorious, the spectacle of clouds, split and pierced by white and blinding bolts.”
Charlotte Brontë

“The forest has shrunk
And fear has expanded,
The forests have dwindled,
There are less animals now,
less courage and less lightning,
less beauty
and the moon lies bare,
deflowered by force and
then abandoned.”
Visar Zhiti, The Condemned Apple: Selected Poetry

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Struck by lightning! Struck by lightning!”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Robert Benchley
“As the storm came nearer I began to realize that I hadn't made the most of my three years' immunity. In fact, I hadn't done a single thing about cleaning up my life. I was, if anything, an even more logical target for lightning than the last time I was in range. And thunderstorms don't creep up on you at seven o'clock in the morning in a non-thunderstorm country for nothing, you know. I lined up a rather panicky schedule of reforms...
But as the storm suddenly petered out and went off in the other direction nothing much has come out of it yet. I may have three years more, and these things can't be rushed.”
Robert Benchley, My Ten Years in a Quandary and How They Grew

Miguel Serrano
“This is a story of eternal love, which is born among the ices but which is soon mixed with dreams of death and of a new dawn.

The first heroes were those who surrendered themselves to the holocaust of love.

As they died, they caught a last glimpse of the City of Dawn and felt for the last time the milky lightning of the moon.”
Miguel Serrano, The Visits of the Queen of Sheba

آيه فوزي
“ومـيـض
بينما كان الظلام يسود عالمي .. ليل.. طريق مظلم.. إذا بوميض باهر يكاد يصيبني بالعمى .. إحتارت ظنونى عن ماهية هذا الوميض أهو نجم هبط من السماء؟ أم ملاك حارس جاء لإغاثتي . تبين لى بالأدلة الدامغة .. من موقع الحدث .. أنها الكشافات الأمامية لسيارة قلب أحدهم تنبهني أنها على وشك الاصطدام .”
آيه فوزي

“I lean against my sister's shoulder. "I thought lightning wasn't supposed to strike in the same place twice."

Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper

“Let the rain wash away all of your sorrows, and fears.
And let the thunder scare away all of your demons.
And let the lightning show you the way to salvation.”

“One of your curls could fall striking me with the genius of a million masterpieces without you even noticing the violent storms of my love.”
Curtis Tyrone Jones

“I love storms. The sound of thunder. The peal of rain. Lightning as it flashes, again and again. It reminds me that man should respect nature, and not fight against her.”
Anthony T. Hincks

Owen Wister
“Nothing's queer," stated the Virginian, "except marriage and lightning. Them two occurrences can still give me a sensation of surprise.”
