Robert Fanney
“A song she heard
Of cold that gathers
Like winter's tongue
Among the shadows
It rose like blackness
In the sky
That on volcano's
Vomit rise
A Stone of ruin
From burn to chill
Like black moonrise
Her voice fell still...”
Robert Fanney

Andrea Gibson, The Madness Vase: By Andrea Gibson

Haruki Murakami
“Now for a good twelve-hour sleep, I told myself. Twelve solid hours. Let birds sing, let people go to work. Somewhere out there, a volcano might blow, Israeli commandos might decimate a Palestinian village. I couldn't stop it. I was going to sleep.”
Haruki Murakami, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World

Beth Hoffman
“She looked up and smiled. “I’m glad you found some books that interest you. Would you like a glass of lemonade?”

Though I was hoping to thank her for the books and be on my way, I didn't want to seem rude. I nodded and set the stack of books on the counter. While Miz Goodpepper pulled a pitcher from the refrigerator, I asked, “Is the Kama Sutra a volcano?”

She gasped and splashed lemonade across the kitchen counter. The strangest look streaked across her face as she sopped up the mess with a wad of paper towels. “Well, I suppose some might think it's a volcano of sorts, but I can say with absolute assurance you wouldn't enjoy that book.”

“That's what I thought,” I said, feeling pleased with myself, so I put it back on the shelf.

She let out a barely audible sigh. “Good.”
Beth Hoffman, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

Victoria Kahler
“Mount Kilauea spilled glowing lava like cords of orange neon-lighting from seemingly nowhere. In the blackness that engulfed the night, electric heat lit flowing streams that fell into the sea, disappearing in a cloud of steam with a sizzling splash.”
Victoria Kahler, Capturing the Sunset

“Each volcano is an independent machine—nay, each vent and monticule is for the time being engaged in its own peculiar business, cooking as it were its special dish, which in due time is to be separately served. We have instances of vents within hailing distance of each other pouring out totally different kinds of lava, neither sympathizing with the other in any discernible manner nor influencing other in any appreciable degree.”
Clarence Edward Dutton, Report on the Geology of the High Plateaus of Utah: With Atlas

“When I see you smile, I feel a volcano of lovely eruptions happening within my heart!”
Avijeet Das

Simon Winchester
“The scientific world of the time was in the midst of a terrible ferment, with discoveries and realizations coming at an unseemly rate. To many in the ranks of the conservative and the devout, the new theories of geology and biology were delivering a series of hammer blows to mankind's self-regard. Geologists in particular seemed to have gone berserk, to have thrown off all sense of proper obeisance to their Maker... Mankind, it seemed, was now suddenly rather – dare one say it? – insignificant. He may not have been, as he had eternally supposed, specially created.”
Simon Winchester, Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded

Mehmet Murat ildan
“When a volcano erupts, people get surprised, but it is a volcano! There is no ‘place’ for the surprise! The biggest problem with people is that they are not serious about the matters of life and death! Be serious or alternatively lose your existence!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Alison Cooklin
“Lava oozed up from the centre of the crater like blood from a wound. As the flaming lava touched the water it hissed and groaned. She feared she would be boiled alive.”
Alison Cooklin, The Light Travellers: Noura's Journey

Mehmet Murat ildan
“It is spectacular to watch an erupting volcano; but it is even much more spectacular to watch the rise of a newly exploding revolutionary idea!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

“When I see you smile, I feel a volcano of magical eruptions happening within my heart!”
Avijeet Das

“Sooner or later, if left unaddressed, this natural human tendency will undermine the entire CPC pyramid like a chamber of magma lying beneath a mammoth volcano.”
Patrick Mendis, Peaceful War: How the Chinese Dream and the American Destiny Create a New Pacific World Order

Israelmore Ayivor
“I noticed that volcanoes, earthquakes and floods, though are not good events, they are better than the silence of good people when bad people take the podium. The latter are to an extent uncontrollable, but the former can be stopped.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Leaders' Frontpage: Leadership Insights from 21 Martin Luther King Jr. Thoughts

جلجامش نبيل, Gilgamesh Nabeel
“استغربت التناقض الذي يحتويه الثلج، النقاء والبرودة، فلطالما بحثت عن قلب نقي يحيطني بالدفء، ولكنني أدركت بأن البرد مريح أيضاً ليطفئ الألم المشتعل في داخلي، وعندئذ فقط أدركت أن البرد راحة ولا يضم الثلج تناقضاً، فرغبتُ في الخروج بسرعة ومعانقة الجليد عارياً حتى أطفئ بركان الأسى المضطرم في أعماقي.”
جلجامش نبيل, Gilgamesh Nabeel, صراع الأقنعة

“My volcano of compress anger was about to erupt in school, and it would take more than five years for my molten lava to be brought under control, which was through the loss of my sight. However, shouldn’t there be a way of detecting and reaching out to kids like me before there is a massive problem? Why wait until there is a devastating eruption before we intervene?”
Drexel Deal, The Fight of My Life is Wrapped Up in My Father

Melody  Lee
“Off the Santorini cliff on a dark, starless night, I tossed a message in a bottle and love found me washed up on the black lava sand of the Aegean shore. As with my previous loves, volcanic in nature. Almost destructive before it started.”
Melody Lee, Moon Gypsy
