LIGHTNING
[ Also see Thunder ]

It is too rash, too unadvised, too sudden;
  Too like the lightning, which doth cease to be
    Ere one can say 'It lightens.'
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Juliet at II, ii)

It is vain to look for a defence against lightning.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

He snatched the thunderbolt from heaven, the sceptre from tyrants.
  [Lat., Eripuit caelo fulmen, mox sceptra tyrannis.]
      - Anne Robert Jacques Turgot,
        inscription for the Houdon bust of Franklin
