Quotations About / On: WEATHER
We who officially value freedom of speech above life itself seem to have nothing to talk about but the weather.
(Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941), U.S. author, columnist. "The Moral Bypass," The Worst Years of Our Lives (first publ. 1985, 1991).)
Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it.
(Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835-1910), U.S. author. attributed in Hartford Courant (Connecticut, Aug. 27, 1897), editorial.
Quoted by Charles D. Warner, though his actual words were, "A well-known U.S. writer once said that while everyone talked about the weather, nobody seemed to do anything about it." The remark is generally ascribed to Twain, with whom Warner collaborated on the novel, The Gilded Age (1873).)
In the right stage of the weather a pond fires its evening gun with great regularity.
(Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), U.S. philosopher, author, naturalist. Walden (1854), in The Writings of Henry David Thoreau, vol. 2, p. 333, Houghton Mifflin (1906).
Thoreau here refers specifically to nearby Flint's Pond in Concord.)
