[It Is Very Desirable To Have A Word To Express The Availability For Work Of The Heat In A Given Magazine; A Term For That Possession, The Waste Of Which Is Called Dissipation. Unfortunately The Excellent Word Entropy, Which Clausius Has Introduced In This Connexion, Is Applied By Him To The Negative Of The Idea We Most Naturally Wish To Express. It Would Only Confuse The Student If We Were To Endeavour To Invent Another Term For Our Purpose. But The Necessity For Some Such Term Will Be Obvious From The Beautiful Examples Which Follow. And We Take The Liberty Of Using The Term Entropy In This Altered Sense ... The Entropy Of The Universe Tends Continually To Zero.]

HG Wells Quotes

"One may picture, too, the sudden shifting of the attention, the swiftly spreading coils and bellyings of that blackness advancing headlong, towering heavenward, turning the twilight to a palpable darkness, a strange and horrible antagonist of vapour striding upon its victims, men and horses near it seen dimly, running, shrieking, falling headlong, shouts of dismay, the guns suddenly abandoned, men choking and writhing on the ground, and the swift broadening-out of the opaque cone of smoke. And then night and extinction – nothing but a silent mass of impenetrable vapour hiding its dead."
