Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury.
If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can ever warm me, I know that is poetry.
If you continue to work hard, let that be the fuel to your fire.
Which painting in the National Gallery would I save if there was a fire? The one nearest the door of course.
George Bernard Shaw
Whenever our neighbour's house is on fire, it cannot be amiss for the engines to play a little on our own.
Mars has long exerted a pull on the human imagination. The erratically moving red star in the sky was seen as sinister or violent by the ancients: The Greeks identified it with Ares, the god of war; the Babylonians named it after Nergal, god of the underworld. To the ancient Chinese, it was Ying-huo, the fire planet.
The fire in the belly is essential, otherwise you become Michael Buble - famous and meaningless.
Steven Patrick Morrissey
In a world of democracies, in a world where the great projects that have set humanity on fire are the projects of the emancipation of individuals from entrenched social division and hierarchy; in such a world individuals must never be puppets or prisoners of the societies or cultures into which they have been born.
Since we can't count on the meat, egg, and dairy industries to protect animals from the most egregious forms of cruelty, what can we, as consumers, do? Opting out of paying someone to allow animals to die in a barn fire or at the slaughterhouse seems pretty reasonable.
The Metropolitan Opera, of course, is the gold standard in opera. The Met experience includes the huge stage, the vast audience, the elaborate sets. Anyone who saw 'Faust' there - I did - knows exactly what hell is like, complete with fire, smoke and terror.
The generous Critic fann'd the Poet's fire, And taught the world with reason to admire.
Edgar Allan Poe
In most communities it is illegal to cry 'fire' in a crowded assembly. Should it not be considered serious international misconduct to manufacture a general war scare in an effort to achieve local political aims?
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Some women hold up dresses that are so ugly and they always say the same thing: 'This looks much better on.' On what? On fire?
Absence is to love what wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small, it enkindles the great.
Roger de Rabutin

Noah came before the flood. I have come before the fire.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
I truly believe that when the history books are written, our age will be remembered for three things: the war on terror, the digital revolution, and what we did - or did not do - to put the fire out in Africa. History, like God, is watching what we do.
My cousin Jerry Lucey and five other firefighters died in a warehouse fire in Worcester, Mass. - my hometown - right in the middle of our old neighborhood downtown when a homeless couple started a fire to keep warm and the entire building went up. My cousin died trying to save homeless people who had already left the building.
When people think about 'thinking,' they often think 'academia;' they think 'threat.' They think 'coldness.' I want to reverse all those images and say, 'No, the brain God gave you is intended to throw fuel on the fire of your affections for God. It's really good at it if you let it.'
I was one of the hardest-hitting conservatives on George W. Bush. Republicans didn't like me on George W. Bush. Republicans still don't like me on many things. If any Republican thinks I've been hard on Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich or any of these guys, wait until Mitt Romney gets into office. I'll hold his feet to the fire just as much.
I'm probably a bit romantic about it, but I think we humans miss having contact with fire. We need it.
Cameras help to minimize collateral damage, and very often, without a camera a missile cannot fire. Certainly, without a camera a drone can't function, which means that the very ways in which we wage war are determined in part by how cameras work and whether they work at all.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
