How to use thunder in a sentence?

  1. Frederick Douglas:

    Those who profess to favor freedom, yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without planting up the ground. They want rain without thunder or lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. The struggle may not be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will.

  2. Dean Martin:

  3. Bob Barker:

    I'm 100% confident that the captain of the Thunder destroyed his own ship.
