I like a look of Agony, because I know it's true -- men do not sham Convulsion, nor simulate, a Throe --
— Emily Dickinson

From the moment I picked your book up until I laid it down, I convulsed with laughter. Someday I intend on reading it.
Groucho Marx convulsing quote

From the moment I picked your book up until I laid it down I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.
— Groucho Marx

The rising power of the United States in world affairs requires, not a more compliant press, but a relentless barrage of facts and criticism. Our job in this age, as I see it, is not to serve as cheerleaders for our side in the present world struggle but to help the largest possible number of people to see the realities of the changing and convulsive world in which American policy must operate.
— James Reston

As the whirlwind in its fury teareth up trees, and deformeth the face of nature, or as an earthquake in its convulsions overturneth whole cities; so the rage of an angry man throweth mischief around him.
— convulsing quotation by Akhenaton
