God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools.
— John Muir

Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempest.
Epicurus tempests quote

The poet is like the prince of cloudsWho haunts the tempest and laughs at the archer;Exiled on the ground in the midst of jeers,His giant wings prevent him from walking.
— Charles Baudelaire

We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life, is rounded with a sleep. The Tempest
— William Shakespeare

Speak the speech, I pray you, as I pronounced it to you -- tripping on the tongue; but if you mouth it, as many of your players do, I had as Leif the town-crier spoke my lines. Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand, thus, but use all gently; for in the very torrent, tempest, and as I may say, the whirlwind of your passion, you must acquire and beget a temperance that may give it smoothness.
— tempests quotation by William Shakespeare
