O tenderly the haughty day Fills his blue urn with fire; One morn is in the mighty heaven, And one in our desire.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You must have your heart on fire and your brain on ice.
I am in a league of my own. The game is on it's knees. The game must hold seminars every weekend to pay for their training costs and I'm out here rallying around California in a car that spits fire, dressed like El Chapo, with anacondas on my feet. So, I am in a league of my own here, ahead of everyone in the game by a country mile.
Man's mind is not a container to be filled but rather a fire to be kindled.
There is no fire like passion, there is no shark like hatred, there is no snare like folly, there is no torrent like greed.
Cooking is one of the strongest ceremonies for life. When recipes are put together, the kitchen is a chemical laboratory involving air, fire, water and the earth. This is what gives value to humans and elevates their spiritual qualities. If you take a frozen box and stick it in the microwave, you become connected to the factory.
You can't fight fire with fire, or fear with fear.
Begin, ephebe, by perceiving the idea Of this invention, this invented world, The inconceivable idea of the sun.You must become an ignorant man again And see the sun again with an ignorant eye And see it clearly in the idea of it.Never suppose an inventing mind as source Of this idea nor for that mind compose A voluminous master folded in his fire.
Most bands, if something goes wrong, they cower and walk off stage and fire people.
I feel like some sort of fiction-writing hobo, jumping trains and always hoping I'll find a good place to start a fire in the next town. And I keep having these panicky episodes where I corner my husband and rant at him: 'I don't have anywhere to write! I can't write! I don't have a place to write!'
Money is in some respects life's fire: it is a very excellent servant, but a terrible master.
P. T. Barnum
In art, S. Bridget is usually represented with her perpetual flame as a symbol, sometimes with a column of fire, said to have been seen above her head when she took the veil.
