Fire Quotes:

Once I wrote ‘Atmosphere,’ I thought, ‘This is my story; it’s me and my life and what I’ve gone through to get to where I am.’ I’m not the best singer, but still.

I’m a big guy: I look like a linebacker, you know? But no one cares, really, that I’m educated. I have a copy of ‘Fire Next Time’ by James Baldwin in my bag. I have an Ibsen play in there, too. I have to walk through this world with that duality all the time, that I live in two different worlds.

Brian Tyree Henry

Insurgencies are easy to make and hard to stop. Only a few ingredients need to combine to create an insurgency; like oxygen and fire, they’re very common and mix all too often. The recipe is, simply, a legitimate grievance against a state, a state that refuses to compromise, a quorum of angry people, and access to weapons.

Richard Engel

George Carlin

The value of biodiversity is that it makes our ecosystems more resilient, which is a prerequisite for stable societies; its wanton destruction is akin to setting fire to our lifeboat.

Johan Rockstrom

Tennessee Williams

Small miseries, like small debts, hit us in so many places, and meet us at so many turns and corners, that what they want in weight, they make up in number, and render it less hazardous to stand the fire of one cannon ball, than a volley composed of such a shower of bullets.

Rudyard Kipling

People are roasting each other at parties, at work events, around the fire. It’s so fun. People are busting each other’s chops, and it’s a sign of affection, truly. It’s a true test of love and friendship: can you make a man laugh at himself? So what makes a good burn? Go after targets you love and respect. And hit ’em hard.

Jeff Ross

No one dislikes LL Cool J. If you meet LL Cool J, you fall in love with LL Cool J. LL and I had mutual friends, and he and I had always talked about doing something. My fans know LL’s music. And I love him – we’re blood brothers at this point. We’ve been through the fire together. I know no finer person.

Kamasi Washington

These natives are a very good people; for when they saw that I would not remain, they supposed that I was afraid of their bows; and, taking their arrows, the broke them in pieces and threw them into the fire.

A God of fire is the only one there is. Our God is not like an iceberg but like a forest fire. He is never compared to the moon with its cool glow but rather to the sun, radiating warmth. He dwells in the light of the rising sun. Whatever he does shines brightly and is carried out with burning desire and a blazing purpose.

Reinhard Bonnke

My brother once lit his leg on fire. And after, when the fire was finally out, his leg was covered in third-degree burns. And we made the decision – or my parents did – not to take him to the hospital but to treat that at home with a salve my mother made of comfrey and lobelia.

Tara Westover

If you continue to work hard, let that be the fuel to your fire.

Thomas Merton

There was never a book, a magazine, a movie, a television show that spoke to my experience as a bicultural teen. I could find a million articles on finding the perfect prom dress or getting the guy of your dreams, but how about ‘Ten Sure Fire Steps to Being the Perfect Korean Daughter and Not Be a Freak at Your High School?’

Su-chin Pak

What being a socialist means is… that you hold out… a vision of society where poverty is absolutely unnecessary, where international relations are not based on greed… but on cooperation… where human beings can own the means of production and work together rather than having to work as semi-slaves to other people who can hire and fire.

Bernie Sanders

I think the kids in school that laughed at the clothes that we wore and the house that we lived in, and then my mother had to cut hair… I think that was a good motivator. Every time they laughed at me, they just built a fire, and there was only one way to put it out – to try and show ’em I was as good as they were.

Jimmy Dean

I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.

Mia Hamm

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.

Laura Esquivel

It is not up to me whether I win or lose. Ultimately, this might not be my day. And it is that philosophy towards sports, something that I really truly live by. I am emotional. I want to win.

Apolo Ohno

Ann Landers

The finest steel has to go through the hottest fire.

Richard M. Nixon

It is not up to me whether I win or lose. Ultimately, this might not be my day. And it is that philosophy towards sports, something that I really truly live by. I am emotional. I want to win. I am hungry. I am a competitor. I have that fire. But deep down, I truly enjoy the art of competing so much more than the result.

Apolo Ohno

In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
Albert Schweitzer

Albert Schweitzer

The inflated imitations of gold and silver, which after the rapture are thrown into the fire, all is exhausted and dissipated by the debt. All scrips and bonds are wiped out. At the fourth pillar dedicated to Saturn, split by earthquake and flood: vexing everyone, an urn of gold is found and then restored.

Nostradamus

It isn’t necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice. There are two other possibilities: one is paperwork, and the other is nostalgia.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

The generous Critic fann’d the Poet’s fire, And taught the world with reason to admire.

Edgar Allan Poe

Dolls fire our collective imagination, for better and – too often – for worse. From life-size dolls the same height as the little girls who carry them, to dolls whose long hair can ‘grow’ longer, to Barbie and her fashionable sisters, dolls do double duty as child’s play and the focus of adult art and adult fear.

Ellen Datlow

Never take a wife till thou hast a house (and a fire) to put her in.

My theory on housework is, if the item doesn’t multiply, smell, catch fire, or block the refrigerator door, let it be. No one else cares. Why should you?

Erma Bombeck

Barbecue is the good old technique of people making a fire and putting some stuff over the top – I mean, look at the S’more: it’s just got a stick. A lot of those goofy toys, it’s people who are looking at things to do. I think if you focus on the food, at the most you need tongs or a spoon to flip something; that’s about it.

Graham Elliot

Words are only painted fire; a look is the fire itself.
Mark Twain

Mark Twain

I am Classic Rock Revisited. I revisit it every waking moment of my life because it has the spirit and the attitude and the fire and the middle finger. I am Rosa Parks with a Gibson guitar.

Ted Nugent

There is nothing so beautiful as the free forest. To catch a fish when you are hungry, cut the boughs of a tree, make a fire to roast it, and eat it in the open air, is the greatest of all luxuries. I would not stay a week pent up in cities if it were not for my passion for art.
Edmonia Lewis

Edmonia Lewis

Barbecue is the good old technique of people making a fire and putting some stuff over the top – I mean, look at the S’more: it’s just got a stick.

Graham Elliot

As for the United States’ future in Afghanistan, it will be fire and hell and total defeat, God willing, as it was for their predecessors – the Soviets and, before them, the British.

Mohammed Omar

I’m a teller of stories. I put bloody skins on my back and dance around the fire, and I say what the hunt was like. It’s not erudite; it’s not intellectual. I sail, run dogs, ride horses, play professional poker, and tell stories about the stuff I’ve been through. And I’m still a romantic; I still want Bambi to make it out of the fire.

Gary Paulsen

Now I would go to London’s Pudding Lane on 2 September 1666 and put out that little fire. I’d love to investigate the histories of a few of the buildings that burned for Restoration Home.

Kate Williams

God, for example, appealed to me as a beardless man wearing a quilted silk cap; holiness was something burning, forbidding, something connected with fire while a day had the form of an oblong box.

Abraham Cahan

Only those who spread treachery, fire, and death out of hatred for the prosperity of others are undeserving of pity.

Jose Marti

I’d rather fight 100 structure fires than a wildfire. With a structure fire you know where your flames are, but in the woods it can move anywhere; it can come right up behind you.

Tom Watson

When I take action, I’m not going to fire a $2 million missile at a $10 empty tent and hit a camel in the butt. It’s going to be decisive.

George W. Bush

People who fight fire with fire usually end up with ashes.

Pauline Phillips

P. T. Barnum

Praised be You, my Lord, through Brother Fire, through whom You light the night, and he is beautiful and playful and robust and strong.

Francis of Assisi

‘Dark Shadows’ was the spark that lit the fire of my childhood imagination. It wasn’t polished; it wasn’t perfect. But it gave us characters with real personalities and complicated motivations.

William J. Mann

The spread of civilisation may be likened to a fire; first, a feeble spark, next a flickering flame, then a mighty blaze, ever increasing in speed and power.

Nikola Tesla

Only a crazy person wouldn’t fear approaching a car with tinted windows during a late-night car stop, or pounding up a flight of stairs to execute a search warrant, or fast-roping from a helicopter down into hostile fire. Real agents, like real people, feel that fear in the pit of their stomachs.

James Comey

The more people that learn about you, even if you’re an underdog, then you can come under fire a lot and the more attention you get and the more threatening or dangerous you appear to people. And the more people try to knock you down.

Gerard Way

There is an electric fire in human nature tending to purify – so that among these human creatures there is continually some birth of new heroism. The pity is that we must wonder at it, as we should at finding a pearl in rubbish.

John Keats

High Romanticism shows you nature in all its harsh and lovely metamorphoses. Flood, fire and quake fling us back to the primal struggle for survival and reveal our gross dependency on mammoth, still mysterious forces.

Camille Paglia
