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

Discipline is the refining fire by which talent becomes ability.
Roy L. Smith
Time is the school in which we learn, time is the fire in which we burn.
Through our great good fortune, in our youth our hearts were touched with fire. It was given to us to learn at the outset that life is a profound and passionate thing.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
In politics, as in religion, it is equally absurd to aim at making proselytes by fire and sword. Heresies in either can rarely be cured by persecution.
Listen, wait, and be patient. Every shaman knows you have to deal with the fire that's in your audience's eye.

Joseph B. Wirthlin
Absence is to love what wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small, it enkindles the great.

I'm frustrated by something, it's my fault for exposing myself to it in the first place. The rumor mill always seemed like a grass fire to me. Why walk out in the middle of the field, it's just going to flame out and go away just like everything else does?
A house is no home unless it contain food and fire for the mind as well as for the body.

I found the iPad to be too large and heavy to use comfortably in casual situations (like reading in bed, for example), and too limited to use as a replacement for my laptop. By comparison, the Nexus 7 is just the right size for use anywhere - it's very similar in size to my daughter's Kindle Fire, but lighter.
