George W. Bush
There must be something in books, something we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing.

Kurt Vonnegut

Amy Carmichael
I have to eat a lot more in the summer because I’m burning more calories.
Hilary Knight
Naturally, you don’t sit down in “white hot inspiration” and write with a burning flame in front of you. But since I knew I could never be happy being anything but a writer, and Mockingbird put itself together for me so accommodatingly, I kept at it because I knew it had to be my first novel, for better or for worse.
Harper Lee
I Wish I Could Give You A Taste Of The Burning Fire Of Love. There Is A Fire Blazing Inside Of Me. If I Cry About It, Or If I Don’t, The Fire Is At Work, Night And Day.
Even the classics that we read to our young children are full of wolves’ fangs and burning ovens and bloody feet and ice shards piercing hearts. Even the New Testament climaxes with an act of unspeakable torture. Might as well just read to our kids from the Amnesty Annual Report and be done with it.
Geraldine Brooks
Who are taking to the witch burning Saturday night?
Stan Freberg
In the burning and devastated cities, we daily experienced the direct impact of war. It spurred us to do our utmost…the bombing and the hardships that resulted from them did not weaken the morale of the populace.
Albert Speer
Christianity…made, for nearly 1,500 years, persecution, religious wars, massacres, theological feuds and bloodshed, heresy huntings and heretic burnings, prisons, dungeons, anathemas, curses, opposition to science, hatred of liberty, spiritual bondage, the life without love or laughter.

Thus at the flaming forge of life
Our fortunes must be wrought;
Thus on its sounding anvil shaped
Each burning deed and thought!

Mother Teresa
If you don’t have a burning passion for writing, how can you expect anyone else to be moved by what you write?
JoAnn Ross
You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage—pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically, to say “no” to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger “yes” burning inside. The enemy of the “best” is often the “good.
Stephen Covey
My 20s were totally bonkers. I was living out of a suitcase and burning the candle at both ends. But I tell you – I am totally over it.
Toni Collette
Recently , crowds of thousands gathered throughout the Muslim world – burning European embassies, issuing threats, taking hostages, even killing people – in protest over twelve cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad that were first published in a Danish newspaper. When was the last atheist riot?
Sam Harris
I’m not one of those people who had a burning passion for ‘Peter Pan’ all my life. Although I can’t remember a time when I didn’t know the story, I didn’t carry around with me an ambition to one day write the sequel.
Geraldine McCaughrean
I decided to sing again after settling in Newark in 1982. I had a burning desire to sing and lots of encouragement from my new wife, Earlene.
Jimmy Scott
When assignments were over, photography continued. One of the primary reasons it did was that I wanted and needed to have fresh work. Also, it’s very stimulating to be around non-professional photographers. They’re the ones with the purest flame burning about their photography. I appreciate that.
Sam Abell
You’ve got to have this burning desire in your chest to succeed.
Rod Stewart
In order to keep the lamp burning you have to keep putting the oil in it.
Mother Teresa
If the invaders reach Iran, the country will turn into a burning hell for them.
Mohammad Khatami
Atheism, true ‘existential’ atheism burning with hatred of a seemingly unjust or unmerciful God, is a spiritual state; it is a real attempt to grapple with the true God.… Nietzsche, in calling himself Antichrist, proved thereby his intense hunger for Christ.
Seraphim Rose
I believe Europe is burning financially. Europe’s problems are not going to go away. They are so structural. Yet, our problems are right behind them. We cannot just look at Europe.
Richard Shelby
Liberals could not be less interested in democracy when it came to taking out Saddam Hussein… Now a loyal American ally [Mubarak] comes under attack and they are burning for democracy.
Ann Coulter
If you aren’t feeding the fire of anger or the fire of craving by talking to yourself, then the fire doesn’t have anything to feed on.
Pema Chodron

John Updike
With throbbing veins and burning skin, eyes wild and heavy, thoughts hurried and disordered, he felt as though the light were a reproach, and shrunk involuntarily from the day as if he were some foul and hideous thing.
Charles Dickens
New Jersey Mayor Corey Booker last night personally rescued a woman from a burning building. Or as Fox News reported it, ‘black man loots house, steals white woman.’
Bill Maher
People like Prince or Madonna, they’re kind of superhuman. You can’t imagine them burning their toast, and there’s something really exciting about that.
When you finally find the courage to admit you have a problem, that’s when you have some power over it. That’s the first step. Otherwise you’re just withering away, you’re like a burning piece of paper getting smaller and smaller.
Ryan Montgomery
Divorce is a fire exit. When a house is burning, it doesn’t matter who set the fire. If there is no fire exit, everyone in the house will be burned!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
We’re lucky, real lucky. Our friends lost their house. We just had some burning embers put holes in the screens.

George Meredith
And now, my poor old woman, why are you crying so bitterly? It is autumn. The leaves are falling from the trees like burning tears- the wind howls. Why must you mimic them?
Mervyn Peake
A burning itch to know is higher than a solemn vow to pursue truth. To feel the burning itch of curiosity requires both that you be ignorant, and that you desire to relinquish your ignorance.
Eliezer Yudkowsky
When we finally know we are dying, and all other sentient beings are dying with us, we start to have a burning, almost heartbreaking sense of the fragility and preciousness of each moment and each being, and from this can grow a deep, clear, limitless compassion for all beings.
Sogyal Rinpoche
If I could only see one miracle, just one miracle. Like a burning bush, or the seas part, or my uncle Sasha pick up a check.

Francis Thompson
Enough of these phrases, conceit and metaphors,
I want burning, burning, burning.
Bless you, daugher of man,” Carter said, his eyes luminous and almost silver now. He leaned down and kissed my forehead. I closed my eyes and caught my breath. His lips were both burning hot and icy cold.
Richelle Mead
After college, I moved to Paris to work as a paralegal. I hadn’t been feeling well throughout most of my senior year of college, but I chalked it up to burning the candle at both ends. After I started my job, I began feeling more and more tired.
Suleika Jaouad
I don’t believe in burning holy books, but I am organizing a protest. I’ll be burning all my Dennis Miller VHS cassettes as a special protest. I don’t want to hear the introduction ‘you may have seen our next comedian on the Hannity show’.
Andy Kindler
Deforestation will continue as long as cutting down and burning trees is more economic than preserving them.
Johan Eliasch
By means of all created things, without excaption, the divine assails us, penetrates us, and molds us. We imagined it as distant and inaccessible, when in fact we live steeped in its burning layers

Cormac McCarthy
You cannot kindle a fire in any other heart until it is burning in your own.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I hate that she’s hurt. I hate that she’s been hurt, by me and by others, throughout the entire arc of her life. I barely remember pain, but when I see it in her I feel it in myself, in disproportionate measure. it creeps into my eyes, stinging, burning.
Isaac Marion
Who would bring light must endure burning.
David Zindell
I crave intimacy to the same burning degree that I detest commitment.

Harry Houdini
When you find your reason for living, hold onto it. Never let it go. Even if it means burning other bridges along the way.
Abbi Glines
We look at the ancient Greeks with their gods on a mountain top throwing lightning bolts and say, ‘Those ancient Greeks. They were so silly. So primitive and naive. Not like our religions. We have burning bushes talking to people and guys walking on water. We’re …sophisticated.’
Paul Provenza
Scriptures reveal the divine desires of the Lord in our behalf. Each of us should have a burning desire to search the scriptures diligently and daily to seek the will of the Lord in our life. For some, it may be necessary to develop the discipline to search the scriptures daily.
L. Lionel Kendrick
The dying sun will glow on you without burning, as it has done today. The wind will be soft and mellow and your hilltop will tremble. As you reach the end of your dance you will look at the sun, for you will never see it again in waking or in dreaming, and then your death will point to the south. To the vastness.
Carlos Castaneda
Love is a burning thing and it makes a firey ring.
Johnny Cash
Gerry Fialka’s annual PXL THIS is a reliably surprising and seductive round-up of recent work achieved with the PXL 2000 camera. This humble outdated “toy” continues to bring out the visionary child in filmmakers and viewers alike, and no one has kept the PXL flame burning longer or brighter than Gerry.
Michael Almereyda
The doctrine of eternal punishment is in perfect harmony with the savagery of the men who made the orthodox creeds. It is in harmony with torture, with flaying alive, and with burnings.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Liberals believe in burning the American flag, urinating on crucifixes, and passing out birth control pills to 11-year-olds without telling their parents — but God forbid an infidel touch a Quran at Guantanamo.
Ann Coulter
I am doing what I want to do – painting pictures people want and understand. I have no burning ambition to create the kind of ‘art’ which the confused critics praise for its ‘plastic significance,’ ‘fluid lines,’ and ‘inner awareness,’ or ‘must be understood on three levels.
Arnold Friberg
Rock stars did not invent burning out. They just do it louder.
Rob Sheffield
Just as Hitler used the Reichstag burning, the U.S. government now uses the so-called two wars, the War on Drugs and the War on Terrorism, to fuel fear in the population and establish a police security state.
Ralph Metzner
Working with real firefighters keeps us really grounded. How can you possibly complain that your trailer is not at the correct temperature when you are working with a man who ran out of a burning building to save someone’s life?
Miranda Rae Mayo
I don’t think much of a dance step where the girl looks like she was being carried out of a burning building.
Frank Hubbard
A flag is supposed to represent everything that a country does. It doesn’t only represent the good things. If you burn the flag, you’re burning the flag for what you perceive to be the bad things the country has done. it’s only a symbol. It’s only a piece of cloth.
George Carlin
I suppose after ‘Four Weddings’ I was very busy for a bit, and I imagined that was my career, but I never had that thing of, ‘I’m burning to be an actor. If I don’t act, I’m not alive.’ I’ve never had that.
Hugh Grant
Our children and grandchildren are going to be mad at us for burning all this oil. It took the Earth 500 million years to create the stuff we’re burning in 200 years. Renewable energy sources are where we need to be headed.
Jack Edwards
You will burn and you will burn out; you will be healed and come back again.
Fyodor Dostoevsky

Eternal Trinity… mystery deep as the sea, You could give me no greater gift than the gift of Yourself. For You are a fire ever burning and never consumed, which itself consumes all the selfish love that fills my being.
St. Catherine of Siena
You see, the Greenhouse Effect is a direct result of burning fossil or old carbon fuels.
Jack Herer
I am burning. If anyone lacks tinder, let him set his rubbish ablaze with my fire.
Billions of years ago God was creating universes and life; thousands of years ago he was creating angry floods, sin-saving human sacrifices and audible burning bushes. Today he occasionally appears on a piece of toast. To state that God has become reclusive over the years would be an overwhelming understatement.
Trevor Treharne
Burning logs can carry on quite a conversation! … Have you ever heard apple wood talking? It’s the most loquacious of all. You really can’t get a word in edgeways.
Agnes Sligh Turnbull
The entire cosmos is one vast burning bush, permeated by the fire of the divine power and glory
Kallistos Ware
Not all poisonous juices are burning or bitter nor is everything which is burning and bitter poisonous.
Claude Levi-Strauss
I spend hundreds of pounds a year on candles and it is such a waste of money. It is burning cash whatever way you look at it but I love them.
Kate Thornton
In the ensuing silence, I have time to contemplate the word cute— how dismissive it is, how it’s the equivalent of calling someone little, how it makes a person into a baby, how the word is a neon sign burning through the dark reading, “Feel Bad About Yourself.
John Green
If I lived through the next day or so, I needed to start keeping track of where these jokers liked to get their bloodthirsty freak on. It might give me an edge someday. Or at least a list of places that could use a nice burning down. I hadn’t burned down a building in ages.
Jim Butcher
Everyone wants a voice in human freedom. There’s a fire burning inside all of us.
Lech Walesa
I would never condone the burning of a Dan Brown novel, much though I loathe and detest his work. Well, I say work, you know, words, randomly arranged to form millions of dollars… I’m not bitter at all.
Bill Bailey
Burning stakes do not lighten the darkness.
Stanislaw Jerzy Lec
If your goal is to produce firefighters and rescue workers, you have to produce people willing to enter burning buildings.
Brian D. McLaren
I don’t believe in heaven, and I don’t believe in hell as a place with flames where people are burning and having eternal pain. I don’t believe in that at all. I believe in a place I call ‘beyond.’
King Diamond
To bear children into this world is like carrying wood to a burning house.
Peter Wessel Zapffe
I love being part of a group who tells stories, whether it be in the theater or in cinema, and I love creating imaginary worlds rather as children do, but I never had a burning desire to act, but it just sort of suited me.
Jeremy Irons
If I were a Brazilian without land or money or the means to feed my children, I would be burning the rain forest too.
I say not one penny more to countries that are burning our flag.
Rand Paul
Angels, living light most glorious! Beneath the Godhead in burning desire in the darkness and mystery of creation you look on the eye of your God never taking your fill: What glorious pleasures take shape within you!
Hildegard of Bingen
We all have that burning question about what happens if we lose somebody we love, especially if we lose them tragically. We wonder what fear was going on, we wonder if we could have reached out and touched them, held their hand, looked in their eyes, been there.
Kevin Costner
When you jump off a cliff, is it better to land on jagged rocks or burning lava? I know this one. The answer is obvious: It doesn’t matter where you land. You just jumped off a cliff.
Richard Kadrey
When the music industry started collapsing, the logical people understood that the only place to go for shelter was the underground. If the world on the surface is burning up, and you know people that have bunkers, go to the bunkers.
You breathed on me and made my life a richer one to live, when I was deep in poverty you taught me how to give. Dried the tears up from my dreams and pulled me from my hole, quenched my thirst and satisfied the burning in my soul.
Bob Dylan
The Eucharist is the bread that gives strength… It is at once the most eloquent proof of His love and the most powerful means of fostering His love in us. He gives Himself every day so that our hearts as burning coals may set afire the hearts of the faithful.
Father Damien
Wavering and burning like a golden lie.
Matthew Sweet
Every few thousand years some shepard inhales smoke from a burning bush and has a vision or eats moldy rye bread in a cave and sees God.
Kerry Thornley
All the circuit training, it’s cardio circuit training, so everything you’re doing, you’re still running up your heart rate. You’re burning, I think, triple the amount of calories than if you were just weight lifting.
Khloe Kardashian
I want it real. I want to know that there is someone, somewhere, who wants it, too. Or else what is the use of seeing it, and working, and burning oneself for an impossible vision? A spirit, too, needs fuel. It can run dry
Ayn Rand
You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.
Ray Bradbury
Who has smelled the woodsmoke at twilight, who has seen the campfire burning, who is quick to read the noises of the night?
Rudyard Kipling
Burning fat efficiently boils down to one thing – building more muscle!
Denise Austin
Of course building a kitchen makes all the symmetric sense in the world because everybody’s burning calories at 120 beats a minute. You could even register it on a graph at the DJ booth. “How fast are they burning calories, sir?” “126 a minute.” “Are you sure?” “Oh, I’m very sure.” You can meter that out.
David Lee Roth
We are ending where the savages began. We have found again the lost arts of starving non-combatants, burning hovels, and leading away the vanquished into slavery. Barbarian invasions would be superfluous: we are our own Huns.
Bertrand de Jouvenel
It takes oil to keep the lamps burning.
Mother Teresa
If it isn’t a passion, it isn’t burning, it isn’t on fire, you haven’t lived.
Diana Vreeland
I had a ’69 Road Runner when I was a kid. I had it for 13 days, came home one day, and my parents were in the driveway. They said, ‘Meet the new owner,’ because they’d gotten phone calls about me burning rubber for the last 12 days. They thought I’d wrap it around a tree, and it was too much car for a 16 year old.
William Fichtner
I had so much fire in me and so many plans.
Claude Monet
And religion causes most of the problems, war, and economics of course, and study your history or you’re going to repeat it; and if you’re burning a Harry Potter book you need some serious counseling, you don’t get it, you’re missing the whole point.
Michael Berryman
There are those who believe destiny rests at the feet of the gods, but the truth is that it confronts the conscious of man with a burning challenge.
Eduardo Galeano
If you have an idea, immediately move on it. To start that fire and get it burning immediately…it’s everything.
Barbara Corcoran
I don’t think of myself as offbeat and weird. As a kid, I saw myself as the type of guy who would run into a burning building to save the baby.
Christian Slater
A BURNING DESIRE TO BE, AND TO DO is the starting point from which the dreamer must take off. Dreams are not born of indifference, laziness, or lack of ambition.
Napoleon Hill
In this climate – with belief in guardian angels and creationism becoming commonplace – making fun of religion is as risky as burning a flag in an American Legion hall.
Wendy Kaminer
If you don’t put a value on money and seek wealth, you most probably won’t receive it. You must seek wealth for it to seek you. If no burning desire for wealth arises within you, wealth will not arise around you. Having definiteness of purpose for acquiring wealth is essential for its acquisition.
John Frederick Demartini
It is a happy circumstance that when nature gives us true burning desires, she also gives us the means to satisfy them. Those who want to win and lack skill can get someone with skill to help them.
Ed Seykota
Lord Jesu, I ask Thee, give unto me movement in Thy love withouten measure; desire withouten limit; longing withouten order; burning without discretion. Truly the better the love of Thee is, the greedier it is; for neither by reason is it restrained, nor by dread distressed, nor by doom tempted.
Richard Rolle
A boot-camp class that combines upper- and lower-body moves – like walking lunges and push-ups – gets the heart rate up quickly, burning fat and calories and toning muscles in a time-efficient way.
David Kirsch
Upon a darkened night the flame of love was burning in my breast
And by a lantern bright I fled my house while all in quiet rest.
Shrouded by the night and by the secret stair I quickly fled.
The veil concealed my eyes while all within lay quiet as the dead.
John of the Cross
To keep the fire burning brightly there’s one easy rule: Keep the two logs together, near enough to keep each other warm and far enough apart – about a finger’s breadth – for breathing room. Good fire, good marriage, same rule.
Marnie Reed Crowell
True learning takes energy, passion and a burning desire.
Robert Kiyosaki
It was the late Dr. Mahendra Lal Sircar who, by founding the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, made it possible for the scientific aspirations of my early years to continue burning brightly.

I’d rather be a flash than a slowly burning ember.
Chris Crutcher
I have a burning desire to see what things look like photographed by me.
Garry Winogrand
Science is not a vast encyclopedia, it is a thin flame of reason burning across ample reservoirs of ignorance.
Robert Kirshner
I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer. My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music. It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips.
Violette Leduc
And do you agree with me, that the first condition of an artist should be to bear respect toward what is great, and to bow to it and acknowledge it and not attempt to extinguish great flames for the sake of making his own rushlight burn more brightly?
Felix Mendelssohn
The universal utilization of water power and its long-distance transmission will supply every household with cheap power and will dispense with the necessity of burning fuel. The struggle for existence being lessened, there should be development along ideal rather than material lines.
Nikola Tesla
I mean, I know thousands of people died and everything, but if it happened today, there’s just no excuse. They’d be much safer inside a movie theater watching one of my movies instead of burning alive in a collapsing skyscraper.
Zach Braff
Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger.
George W. Bush
Living wild species are like a library of books still unread. Our heedless destruction of them is akin to burning the library without ever having read its books.
John Dingell
In the City of God there will be a great thunder,
Two brothers torn apart by Chaos,
while the fortress endures,
the great leader will succumb,
The third big war will begin when the big city is burning
Fossil fuels powered the U.S. into the industrial age and replaced windmills and wood burning, which were inefficient, as the primary sources of electricity.
Stephen Moore
There is no art without intoxication. But I mean a mad intoxication! Let reason teeter! Delirium! The highest degree of delirium! Plunged in burning dementia! Art is the most enrapturing orgy within man’s reach.. Art must make you laugh a little and make you a little afraid. Anything as long as it doesn’t bore.
Jean Dubuffet
Pliny the Elder, who when Rome was burning requested Nero to play You Picked a Fine Time to Leave Me, Lucille. Never got a dinner!
Red Buttons
Many billions of years will elapse before the smallest, youngest stars complete their nuclear burning and shrink into white dwarfs. But with slow, agonizing finality perpetual night will surely fall.
Paul Davies
In the Heaven’s above, the angels, whispering to one another, can find, among their burning terms of love, none so devotional as that of ‘Mother.
Edgar Allan Poe
The retreat and disappearance of glaciers—there are only 160,000 left—means we’re burning libraries and damaging the planet, possibly beyond repair. Bit by bit, glacier by glacier, rib by rib, we’re living the Fall.
Gretel Ehrlich
If you prefer smoke over fire then get up now and leave. For I do not intend to perfume your mind’s clothing with more sooty knowledge.
It is possible to ruin a chicken in the cooking of it, but not easily. Short of burning it or letting it get dried out, you can hardly go wrong.
Jo Coudert
What progress we are making. In the Middle Ages they would have burned me. Now they are content with burning my books.
Sigmund Freud
If any man is rich and powerful he comes under the law of God by which the higher branches must take the burnings of the sun, and shade those that are lower; by which the tall trees must protect the weak plants beneath them.
Henry Ward Beecher
Burning fossil fuels has given us the gift of seeing ourselves in new ways. But that very gift now enables us to see we’ve got to change our ways.
Sylvia Earle
Oh, I’m burning! I wish I were out of doors! I wish I were a girl again, half savage and hardy, and free… and laughing at injuries, not maddening under them! Why am I so changed?
Emily Bronte
Nature is a burning and frigid, transparent and limited universe in which nothing is possible but everything is given.
Albert Camus
This girl shivers and crawls under the covers with all her clothes on and falls into an overdue library book, a faerie story with rats and marrow and burning curses. The sentences build a fence around her, a Times Roman 10-point barricade, to keep the thorny voices in her head from getting too close.
Laurie Halse Anderson
Frankly, I never had any intense desire to go to India. I know that sounds a bit strange, but it just never was someplace I had a burning desire to visit.
Judi Dench
Burning every bridge that I cross to find some beautiful place to get lost.
Elliott Smith
I’ve never looked ahead very much in my life. I’ve never had any grand plan from the outset. I had no burning ambition to do what I do.
Tracey Ullman
People sometimes say we need to be really almost on a wartime footing if you want to change. Our whole economy is based on burning fossil fuels, which is taking CO2 out of the ground and putting it up into the air.
Elizabeth Kolbert
You want to be burning calories after you work out. The problem becomes for most people – its not pleasant, its painful. You have to have the pain tolerance to be able to deal with that, which a lot of people do not.
Brett Hoebel
Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships.
Ansel Adams
Which idiot put the GOP convention the same time as ‘Burning Man’ in Nevada? Is there time to change this?
Grover Norquist
To be wealthy you must develop a burning desire for wealth and financial independence.
Brian Tracy
In dancing the Alman the young men sometimes steal the damsels from their partners and he who has been robbed seeks to obtain another damsel. But I do not hold with this behaviour because it may lead to quarrels and heart burning.
Thoinot Arbeau
Faith is like lighting the torch that passes from one person to the next. You can’t light the torch of another if yours isn’t burning.
Charles R. Swindoll
There’s a storm inside of us. I’ve heard many team guys speak of this. A burning. A river. A drive.
Marcus Luttrell
By burning fossil fuels, we are already dumping 30 billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year, which has a profound effect on the climate. So, like it or not, we’re already messing with a system we don’t understand.
Jeff Goodell
Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
William Blake
I lack the peace of simple things. I am never wholly in place. I find no peace or grace. We sell the world to buy fire, our way lighted by burning men.
Wendell Berry
I have this burning desire to get out there and do my best. It’s as if I’m keeping it all in a little bottle, and it’s all going to come out when I do the best I’m capable of doing.
Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Fracking is an amazing instance of discovery of many things that come together to make it much cheaper to extract oil and gas. In a world where burning oil and gas puts more and more carbon into the atmosphere, it’s not actually the most important kind of innovation to have.
Paul Romer
Sometimes I want to have a mental book burning that would scour my mind clean of all the filthy visions literature has conjured there. But how to do without ‘The Illiad?’ How to do without ‘Macbeth?’
Geraldine Brooks
The advice I would give to my younger self is very, very simple: Stop burning the candle at both ends and renew your estranged relationship with sleep. You will be more productive, more effective, more creative, and more likely to enjoy your life.
Arianna Huffington
As a scientist, I can not help feeling that all religions are on a tottering foundation. None is perfect or inspired.The idea that a good God would send people to a burning hell is utterly damnable to me. I don’t want to have anything to do with such a God.
Luther Burbank
A good book is the precious life-blood of a master-spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life, and as such it must surely be a necessary commodity.
Penelope Fitzgerald
I don’t see teenagers anymore. I see… I see youths. Slumped S shapes in their hoodies, all huddled round a bin of burning grannies. All texting eachother because they’ve given up on speech.
Dylan Moran

Lou Holtz
Once you start dropping thoughts, the dust that you have collected in the past, the flame arises – clean, clear, alive, young. Your whole life becomes a flame, and a flame without any smoke. That is what awareness is.
If these holy places, things, and days cease to remind us, if they obliterate our awareness that all ground is holy and every bush (could we but perceive it) a Burning Bush, then the hallows begin to do harm. Hence both the necessity, and the perennial danger, of ‘religion.’

Roland Barthes

Lulu Wang

Ramez Naam
A certain fire pretends to be alive; it awakens. Working its way along the hand as a conductor, it reaches the support and engulfs it; then a leaping spark closes the circle it was to trace, coming back to the eye and beyond.
Paul Klee
Desire is a bonfire that burns with greater fury, asking for more fuel.
Sathya Sai Baba

Edward Kennedy

Ellen Key
Flesh is heretic.
My body is a witch.
I am burning it.
Eavan Boland
Don’t be a writer; it’s a terrible way to live your life. There’s nothing to be gained from it but poverty and obscurity and solitude. So if you have a taste for all those things, which means that you really are burning to do it, then go ahead and do it. But don’t expect anything from anybody.
Paul Auster
Sometimes you get the best light from a burning bridge.

Milo Yiannopoulos
As long as I can compete with the 20-somethings out there… I have a burning passion to do what I do. Financially, I don’t need to wrestle anymore. I do it because I enjoy it.
The Undertaker
Love is watchful. Sleeping, it does not slumber. Wearied, it is not tired. Pressed, it is not straitened. Alarmed, it is not confused, but like a living flame, a burning torch, it forces its way upward and passes unharmed through every obstacle.
Thomas a Kempis
I could have clasped the red walls to my bosom as a garment of eternal peace. “Death,” I said, “any death but that of the pit!” Fool! might I have not known that into the pit it was the object of the burning iron to urge me?

Richard Siken
A barracks is meant to be a place where real soldiers were to be fed and equipped for war, not a place to settle down in or as a comfortable snuggery in which to enjoy ourselves. I hope that if ever they, our soldiers, do settle down God will burn their barracks over their heads!
Catherine Booth

Billy Joel
What right has a man to ask Jesus to forgive him, when his heart is still burning with hatred or festering with grudges against a fellow-creature? Confession, to be of any avail, must let go of its hold on the sin confessed.

William A. Niskanen
I could never fear a God who kept a hell prison-house. No, not though he flung me there because I refused. There is a power stronger than such a one; and it is possible to walk unscathed even in the burning furnace.
James Anthony Froude
I saw a Velveeta commercial and it was playing, I think ‘Burning Love.’ He [Michael Jackson] had approved it – that’s something we can’t control. He can do whatever he wants with the songs he owns to make money, and that got under my skin.

Ray Bradbury
I felt like someone had ripped my heart out and tossed it across the other side of the room. There was a burning, agonizing pain in my chest, and I had no idea how it could ever be filled.

Richelle Mead

Pablo Neruda
Faith, amid the disorders of a sinful life, is like the lamp burning in an ancient tomb.

and a red powder seeps through my veins.

Chris Burden
Beware of prejudice; light is good in whatsoever lamp it is burning; a rose is beautiful in whatever garden it may bloom.

Terry Tempest Williams
What you want is to rev up your metabolism so that you are burning fat and calories, not preserving fat and calories.
Kathy Freston
The trick at every turn was to endure the test of living for as long as possible. The odds of survival were punishingly slim, for the world was naught by a school of calamity and an endless burning furnace of tribulation. But those who survived the world shaped it–even as the world, simultaneously, shaped them.
Elizabeth Gilbert
The English are good at bad guys – the James Bond-style villain, cunning, slow-burning. The Americans are much more obvious about it.
Idris Elba
My heart is burning with love. All I can see is this flame. My heart is burning with passion, like waves on an ocean. I’m at home, wherever I am. And in the room of lovers, I can see with closed eyes the beauty that dances. Behind the veils, intoxicated with love, I too dance the rhythm of this moving world.
If I stayed here, something inside me would be lost forever—something I couldn’t afford to lose. It was like a vague dream, a burning, unfulfilled desire. The kind of dream people have only when they’re seventeen.

Horace Mann
Our flame is taking the normal depleted uranium – the 99.3 percent that’s cheap as heck, and there’s a pile of it sitting in Paducah, Kentucky that’s enough to power the United States for hundreds and hundreds of years. You’re taking that and you are converting it to plutonium – and then you’re burning that.
Bill Gates
One must never let the fire go out in one’s soul, but keep it burning.
Vincent Van Gogh
The key to motivation is motive. It’s the why. It’s the deeper yes! burning inside that makes it easier to say no to the less important.
Stephen Covey
A lot of us have been raised with the Bible and with movies from Hollywood to believe that God shouts down from the heavens or appears in a burning bush. It’s always so dramatic and kind of scary. So that’s what we all expect when we’re asking God for some answers.
Echo Bodine
A mother’s love is like a beacon, Burning bright with Faith and Prayer, And through the changing scenes of life, We can find a haven there.

David Gemmell
Most burning issues generate far more heat than light.
Roger von Oech

Andrew Harvey
Karate is not a game. It is not a sport. It is not even a system of self-defense. Karate is half physical exercise and half spiritual. The karateist who has given the necessary years of exercise and meditation is a tranquil person. He is unafraid. He can even be calm in a burning building.
Mas Oyama
After having edited numerous shorts, earning award nominations for it, and then 4 features edits, the director inside me is now burning to share its voice. Thriller, Horror, zany Comedy.

Somewhere a bicycle bell rings. Somewhere else there’s a war on. Somewhere else people turn to shadows and powder in an instant and the streets turn to funnels and light the sky with their burning. Somewhere a war is over.
Tim Winton
Michael Jordan brings millions of dollars when he shows up in an arena. Since money is how we judge people, he’s very valuable. But while that’s happening, Rome is burning within the black community.

Rick Riordan
There is no essential difference between sticking pins into a wax image of an enemy and burning candles in front of a wax image of the Virgin. You may think that both these practices are gross superstition, but you can hardly think that one is real and potent and deny reality and potency to the other.
Dion Fortune
A Christian is not a skeptic. A Christian is a person with a burning heart, a heart set aflame with certainty of the resurrection.
R. C. Sproul
When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it.
W. Clement Stone
When the slugs penetrate, you feel a burning sensation,
Gettin closer to God in a tight situation.
I’ve always had a burning desire to help people and make a difference in the world. I didn’t know how I could do that in modelling when it can be such a fake world. But my dad told me I could make a difference by being true to myself and teaching people what I’ve learnt about spirituality, health and nutrition.

Dave Thomas
Let us rejoice in the truth, wherever we find its lamp burning.
Albert Schweitzer
A woman isn’t all that different from a bonfire. A fire’s a beautiful thing, right? Something you can’t take your eyes off, when it’s burning. If you can keep it contained, it’ll throw light and heat for you. It’s only when it gets out of control that you have to go on the offensive.
Jodi Picoult
I train for at least two hours, three times a day – weights, bench-press, push-ups, running, sparring, boxing sessions – so I must be burning off a lot of calories. But I don’t weigh myself too often – just once every day.
Nicola Adams
We’re weird roman candles burning bright at both ends. At the end of the road’s where this story begins. Where the green of the gulf meets the blue of the sea. What makes it all happen is still a mystery to me. But those crazy days and those crazy ways, we never want to undo. We’ll be together, now and forever.
Jimmy Buffett
Many pilots of the time were the opinion that a fighter pilot in a closed cockpit was an impossible thing, because you should smell the enemy. You could smell them because of the oil they were burning.
Adolf Galland

Haskell Wexler
I’m not allowed to be woken up under any circumstances except if my house starts burning. Then my wife is authorised to wake me up, but only if fire gets to the door of my room.

Karen Rose
The whole point of writing is to have something in your gut or in your soul or in your mind that’s burning to be written.
Jerome Lawrence

Tony Robbins
I am dominated by one thing, an irresistible, burning attraction towards the abstract.
Gustave Moreau

Joseph Campbell
It is a search for a mythical CO2 sink to explain an immeasurable CO2 lifetime to fit a hypothetical CO2 computer model that purports to show that an impossible amount of fossil fuel burning is heating the atmosphere. It is all a fiction.
Tom Segalstad
For people who are displaced, you can reconstruct the story of your life from the objects you have access to, but if you don’t have the objects then there are holes in your life. This is why people in Bosnia – if anyone was running back into a burning house, it was to salvage photos.
Aleksandar Hemon
All achievement, no matter what may be its nature, or its purpose, must begin with an intense, burning desire for something definite.
Napoleon Hill
Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. Everybody’s like “How can you remain with a level head?”. And I’m like “Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.”
Jennifer Lawrence
When we kiss my heart’s on fire, burning with a strange desire. And I know that every time I kiss you, that your heart’s on fire, too.

William Shakespeare
I’m very blessed that I have a healthy temper. I can become quite angry and burning in anger, but I have never been bitter. Bitterness is a corrosive, terrible acid. It just eats you and makes you sick.

Abraham Cahan
There has been no persecution I have not tasted, no oppression I have not suffered. I neither care for Paradise nor fear Hell. If I see my nation’s belief secured, I will not even care about burning in Hell, for while my body is burning, my heart will be as if in a rose garden.
Said Nursi
Is not Fire a Body heated so hot as to emit Light copiously? For what else is a red hot Iron than Fire? And what else is a burning Coal than red hot Wood?

John Lydon
I didn’t have a burning desire to be a writer or director – writer probably more so, certainly not a director.
Billy Bob Thornton
Freedom of speech trumps political correctness. I would say our magazine would publish an anti-Semitic or Holocaust denying cartoon if it meant Jews around the world were rioting because of it and burning embassies because of a cartoon. We would want to show our readers what all the fuss was about.

Oh, he was the sun burning bright and brittle And she was the moon shining back his light a little He was a shooting star She was softer and more slowly He could not make things possible But, she could make them holy.
Harry Chapin
To say that you can love one person all your life is just like saying that one candle will continue burning as long as you live.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes
The love of nature is a passion for those in whom it once lodges. It can never be quenched. It cannot change. It is a furious, burning, physical greed, as well as a state of mystical exaltation. It will have its own.
Mary Webb
I have always been a very passionate person. Some people are born with this fire burning inside to “do,” or create, with an insatiable hunger for knowledge and experience, and I am no exception.
Nikki Reed
It was a bad one, the Winter of 1933. Wading home that night through flames of snow, my toes burning, my ears on fire, the snow swirling around me like a flock of angry nuns, I stopped dead in my tracks. The time had come to take stock. Fair weather or foul, certain forces in the world were at work trying to destroy me.
John Fante
Seeing the B-52s dropped from planes, watching the burning of civilians with Agent Orange, reading about the incarceration of Vietnamese militants in cages only big enough for tigers made me furious.

Warwick Davis
[Nationalism is] a set of beliefs taught to each generation in which the Motherland or the Fatherland is an object of veneration and becomes a burning cause for which one becomes willing to kill the children of other Motherlands or Fatherlands.
Howard Zinn
Nothing is real except the present, and already, I feel the weight of centuries smothering me. Some girl a hundred years ago once lived as I do. And she is dead. I am the present, but I know I, too, will pass. The high moment, the burning flash, come and are gone, continuous quicksand. And I don’t want to die.
Sylvia Plath

Alice Cooper

Marge Piercy
You absolutely cannot be big time tech guy without attending Burning Man.
Sarah Cooper
I’m a big fan of breakfast food. Literally, the simplest thing in the world – if you can scramble eggs without burning them, I’ll eat them. It doesn’t matter what time of the day it is.
Chris Young
I’ve read plenty of J.G. Ballard, but I’m not really a Ballardian. I’ve met Ballardians, and I know when I can’t compete. I like Ballard in his relatively unchallenging apocalyptic mode: ‘Vermilion Sands,’ ‘The Drowned World,’ ‘The Burning World,’ ‘The Crystal World.’
Lev Grossman
The right to take a chance, the right to suffer. The right to be unwise, the right to die. These aims are hateful to the government, which values ever frightened mouse and falling sparrow as equal to a tiger burning bright.
Fritz Leiber
Death and Light are everywhere, always, and they begin, end, strive, attend, into and upon the Dream of the Nameless that is the world, burning words within Samsara, perhaps to create a thing of beauty.
Roger Zelazny
To truly be of service to others, we must first serve the server. The ability to bring an enlightened presence to those in need is the ability to light a candle without burning ourselves out.
Bill Crawford
[John Brown’s] zeal in the cause of freedom was infinitely superior to mine. Mine was as the taper light, his was as the burning sun… I could speak for the slave. John Brown could fight for the slave.
Frederick Douglass
Within 25 years, virtual reality meetings will be essentially transparent to being there in person. Once we can do this, the idea of climbing into an aircraft, and burning up huge quantities of fossil fuels to propel our bodies and briefcases full of papers, will seem absolutely backward.
Burt Rutan
All of Dad’s relationships ended exactly the same: subpoena, beep of a moving van backing up the driveway, pile of his clothes burning on the front lawn.

Cynthia McKinney
Nothing constructive and worthy of man’s efforts ever has or ever will be achieved except by that which comes from a positive mental attitude, based on a definiteness of purpose and activated by a burning desire, and acted upon until the burning desire is elevated to the level of applied faith.
Napoleon Hill
Animal agriculture takes up an incredible 70% of all agricultural land, and a whopping 30% of the land surface of the planet. As a result, farmed animals are probably the biggest cause of slashing and burning the world’s forests.
Kathy Freston
Love isn’t about when you first meet. It’s about the many, many years you spend together, when you’re trying to keep that flame burning.
Kazuo Ishiguro
The burning conviction that we have a holy duty toward others is often a way of attaching our drowning selves to a passing raft.
Eric Hoffer
I agree that my single-minded approach was a failing in life, but if I upset people, it was never intentional – it was just the unfortunate result of a burning desire to get the best out of myself and achieve as much as possible.
Geoffrey Boycott
But what if your fire is not burning well or, worse, has gone out? Without inner fire, you have no light, no heat, no desire… there’s only one way out – and that’s through the dark woods. You must change your life.
Phil Cousineau
Your torch of consciousness should be burning continuously; then there will not be any darkness.
Whenever someone says zygotes are babies, I reply: ‘Imagine a thousand zygotes in test tubes in one room, and three toddlers in another. A fire breaks out, and you only have time to get to one room. Which would you save from burning – the zygotes or the children?’
Kurt Eichenwald
They rode out together from the shadows of the trees, leaving the Bala Hissar and the glowing torch of the burning Residency behind them, and spurred away across the flat lands towards the mountains… And it may even be that they found their Kingdom.
M.M. Kaye
I predict that you students who are burning out from the pressure to fix upon a career choice as early as possible and tailor your studies accordingly, will find relief for a few hours here and there in a great library.
Hilary Farr
I do think New York prepares you for the crossection of personalities and realities on display when you leave the country, and I’d live somewhere else if I had a reason or burning-the-the-point-of-discomfort desire to do so.
Sloane Crosley
The only church that illuminates is a burning church.
Buenaventura Durruti
Even when nuclear power plants go horribly wrong, they do less damage to the planet and its people than coal-burning stations operating normally.
George Monbiot
I want a bit of peace and quiet in my life after burning the candle at both ends.
Nigel Benn
Doom yourself to horrific climate change by burning all that carbon and releasing all that CO2. Or power down society, reducing total energy usage around the planet. One leads to ecological collapse. The other is a reversion, in many ways, to poverty.
Ramez Naam
Burning up the phone until there’s nothing left to say, so I lay here and just listen to you breathe. Girl you know it’s only been a week since our first date-back when you were just a stranger to me. I’ve never let another in so soon.
Toby Keith
The burning gaze of a young woman, such as hath tasted man, shall not escape me; for I have a spirit keen to mark these things.

Patrick SГјskind
I’ve always said a romance hero can be deeply flawed… as long as he’s willing to rush into a burning building to rescue a basket of kittens.
Teresa Medeiros
All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm.
John Green
Nothing prepares you for shooting in the sea. Some days the sea is choppy, some days the waves are long. When there is no wind, it’s fantastic to shoot, but your brain is burning because of the heat. You are shooting hand-held and taking a crane on a boat, which is risky since you can get toppled over.
Rajiv Menon
The burning embers within me burst into flame / My body becomes a fire-lit torch. / Ho someone! Send for the mid-wife.
Amrita Pritam

Imagine your shadow burning off the page / As the dear world and the dead word disengage
Don Paterson
We’re gonna be using American produced, American energy that will create jobs in the United States, will create a far more secure source of energy for us and will make us better environmental stewards because we will be contributing less to climate change and burning much cleaner fuel.
Ray Mabus
No carbs when I’m not working, so on Saturday and Sunday I don’t eat any carbs ‘cos I’m not burning any, I’m not working out. A high intake of fibre and salads to stay lean.
Joivan Wade
Burning Man is like one big giant art installation in the middle of starkly beautiful desert landscape, and the attendees are creative in the way they dress.
Tom Anderson
I don’t have a burning desire to be taken seriously as an actor. I don’t have a master plan in that way.
Ben Stiller
You can’t lead others to places you don’t want to go yourself. If you don’t feel a burning passion for something, how in the world can you inspire and encourage others to share it?
James M. Kouzes
I think it is nice for people to appreciate a slow-burning, beautiful story that makes you feel good when it is over.
Emily Blunt
My evangelical phase about Burning Man is well and truly in the past.
Geoff Dyer
We have to slow down the emissions of carbon dioxide and methane from coal burning, oil and eventually natural gas… And the best ways to do that are energy efficiency and a switch to renewables.
Ramez Naam
But once an idea for a novel seizes a writer…well, it’s like an inner fire that at first warms you and makes you feel good but then begins to eat you alive, burn you up from within. You can’t just walk away from the fire; it keeps burning. The only way to put it out is to write the book.
Dean Koontz
You could see the flames and the outer skin of the spacecraft glowing; and burning, baseball size chunks flying off behind us. It was an eerie feeling, like being a gnat inside a blowtorch flame.
William Anders
Those who begin by burning books will end by burning people.
Heinrich Heine
Long drawn, the cool, green shadows
Steal o’er the lake’s warm breast,
And the ancient silence follows
The burning sun to rest. The calm of a thousand summers,
And dreams of countless Junes,
Return when the lake-wind murmurs
Through golden August noons.
William Braithwaite
Life is a flame that is always burning itself out; but it catches fire again every time a child is born. Life is greater than death, and hope than despair.
George Bernard Shaw
They were just kind of simultaneous – the film ending and the sets being destroyed. I was struck the first time I saw the Great Hall become a big pile of burning rubble and getting scattered around. It’s really quite shocking for the fans.
Rupert Grint
Books are the ever burning lamps of accumulated wisdom.
George William Curtis
I can’t tell you where a poem comes from, what it is, or what it is for: nor can any other man. The reason I can’t tell you is that the purpose of a poem is to go past telling, to be recognised by burning.
A. R. Ammons
Do not look for Jesus away from yourselves. He is not out there; He is in you. Keep your lamp burning, and you will recognize him.
Mother Teresa
I am not like
other people.
I am
burning in hell. The hell of
Charles Bukowski
A visual experience is vitalizing. Whereas to write great poetry, to draw continuously on one’s inner life, is not merely exhausting, it is to keep alight a consuming fire.
Kenneth Clark
It is the burning lava of the soul that has a furnace within–a very volcano of grief and sorrow-it is that burning lava of prayer that finds its way to God. No prayer ever reaches God’s heart which does not come from our hearts.
Charles Spurgeon
Without an end to the burning of fossil fuels, coal especially, most of us will live shorter lives. I’m hopeful, but very, very concerned.
Bill Nye
Brave people are the firemen who run into the burning building. That’s brave.
Elizabeth Edwards
Time – whether you are burning it up or falling in love or spreading it out thin in a dentist’s waiting room – is a commodity that cannot be weighed out and measured by clocks.
Joan Lindsay
The burning bushes, the smoking mountains, . . . the Cumorahs, and the Kirtlands were realities; but they were the exceptions. . . . Always expecting the spectacular, many will miss entirely the constant flow of revealed communication.
Spencer W. Kimball
I would like to write you so simply, so simply, so simply. Without having anything ever catch the eye, excepting yours alone, … so that above all the language remains self-evidently secret, as if it were being invented at every step, and as if it were burning immediately
Jacques Derrida
Burning hearts are not nourished by empty heads
R. C. Sproul
Many casting directors won’t hire aspiring actors because you might be burning some chick’s headshot under the table so she doesn’t get the part.
Olivia Wilde
If the popular thing to do is to say you have to ban flag burning, even if it ultimately means we’re compromising a core principle of who we are as a republic, I don’t think Donald Trump really thinks that that deeply into it.
Megyn Kelly
I got a horror film, ‘The Burning,’ and suddenly I was making crazy money, like a thousand a week, so I moved into an apartment on Amsterdam with a guy who was also in ‘The Burning,’ Jason Alexander.
Holly Hunter
Ninety percent of true love is acute, ear-burning embarrassment.
Terry Pratchett
I see life as a burning meteorite that you can climb all over, and feed off, as it is falling to earth.
Doug Aitken
I find it amazing that the only group of people who are not fighting and not killing and not pillaging and not burning and not raping, and the group of people who are mostly — though not exclusively — who are keeping life going in the midst of war, are not included in the negotiating table.
Zainab Salbi
It’s true that I’ve never had a burning desire to rebel against my parents.
Taylor Swift
Lord, I do fear Thou’st made the world too beautiful this year My soul is all but out of me-let fall No burning leaf; prithee, let no bird call.
Edna St. Vincent Millay
unless the sun inside you is burning your gut, don’t do it
Charles Bukowski
The orange flames waved at the crowd as paper and print dissolved inside them. Burning words were torn from their sentences.
Markus Zusak
When we set goals, we are in command. Clearly understood goals bring our lives into focus just as a magnifying glass focuses a beam of light into a burning point. Without goals our efforts may be scattered and unproductive
Ezra Taft Benson
The north of the Central African Republic is now a war zone, with rival armed bands burning villages, kidnapping children, robbing travelers and killing people with impunity.
Nicholas Kristof
I’ve always said people say on a dramatic show, ‘I was crying. It was so emotional when he went and grabbed that little girl from a burning building and handed her over to her mother.’ In comedy, the best thing you can say is, ‘I think it’s funny.’
Bob Newhart
We have to be faster in calming down a resentment than putting out a fire, because the consequences of the first are infinitely more dangerous than the results of the last; fire ends burning down some houses at the most, while the resentment can cause cruel wars, with the ruin and total destruction of nations.
As a writer, there are times when you have something to say, and yet no particular ‘hook’ upon which to hang the missive you are burning to release.
Tim Wise
He was alone in the darkness once more, but the darkness became brighter and brighter until it was burning like the sun.
Neil Gaiman
You kindled me, heap of ashes that I am, into fire. He had wondered once why love was always phrased in terms of burning. The conflagration in his own veins, now, gave the answer.
Cassandra Clare
With the help of personal introductions by Andrew Carnegie, diligence and an absolute burning desire to teach the world how to become successful, Napoleon Hill devoted nearly his entire adult lifetime creating practical content entrepreneurs need to become successful.
Clay Clark
Sometimes I want to have a mental book burning that would scour my mind clean of all the filthy visions literature has conjured there. But how to do without ‘The Illiad?’ How to do without ‘Macbeth?
Geraldine Brooks
Novels so often provide an anodyne and not an antidote, glide one into torpid slumbers instead of rousing one with a burning brand.
Virginia Woolf
Destroying a tropical rainforest for profit is like burning all the paintings of the Louvre to cook dinner.
E. O. Wilson
I think it’s fairly common for writers to be afflicted with two simultaneous yet contradictory delusions, the burning certainty that we’re unique geniuses, and the constant fear that we’re witless frauds who are speeding toward epic failure.
Scott Lynch
While marriage is many things, it is anything but sentimental. Marriage is glorious but hard. It’s a burning joy and strength, and yet it is also blood, sweat, and tears; humbling defeats and exhausting victories.
Timothy Keller
We are so busy constantly checking our own temperatures, we fail to notice the burning fevers of others.
Neal A. Maxwell
God, give me a deep humility, a well-guided zeal, a burning love and a single eye, and then let men or devils do their worst!
George Whitefield
Rule of thumb: Eat for what you’re going to be doing, and not for what you have done. Don’t take in more than you’re willing to burn off.

Rhage burning deep inside Uncontrollable Phury, unable to hide Trust me and I’ll let my Wrath begin This Tohrment building up within My Vischous attitude will shine through ………I’ll let my Tehrror free on you -my own zsadist quote from the black dagger brotherhood that i found online
J.R. Ward
Religion is passionate, reckless, destructive, idol-smashing. It’s a martyr burning at the stake. It’s a crown of thorns and a cross.
Martha Ostenso
Be not lax in celebrating.
Be not lazy in the festive service of God.
Be ablaze with enthusiasm.
Let us be an alive, burning offering before the altar of God.
Hildegard of Bingen
I have to do this, as long as it is at all possible; for if those who are obliged to look after commas had always made sure they were in the right place, then Shanghai would not be burning.
Karl Kraus
He had the innate sense that something bad was just around the bend, but a hope that something incredible was waiting in the distance. It had to be. His burning love for her cursed through him until he felt so full he didn’t know whether he would fit through the portal.
Lauren Kate
The musician and the listener. If this is love between two strangers watching each other from afar, that rough, burning moment when you rush in and kiss is the show.
I’m screwed up, mixed up, messed around, dive-bombing, crashing and burning.
Jaclyn Moriarty
I was raised in the church, and there’s still a fire burning inside me. I definitely don’t ever want to be preachy. But less and less young people are religious. The thing is, I see so many positive things about religion, so I’m happy to talk about it.
Brandon Flowers
You have the burning desire as a successful sportsperson and that needs to go somewhere when you finish. It is a problem so many people have when their careers end and I was no different.
Denise Lewis
My father pulled into Pearl Harbor four days after the bombing, and he said, everything was still burning. He said they never told the public how bad it was. It was really bad.
John Lasseter
Randy Edsall is a good, strong, decent man who is working his tail off on behalf of the University of Maryland. And there are more people that want to spend their days burning things down than building it up. At least just stop rooting against him. You know, give the guy a chance.
Kevin Plank
Burning is no answer.
Camille Desmoulins
What’s burning down is a re-creation of a period revival house patterned after a copy of a copy of a copy of a mock Tudor big manor house. It’s a hundred generations removed from anything original, but the truth is aren’t we all?
Chuck Palahniuk
Two beautiful women crashing and burning for the sake of the Women’s Championship!!!
Jim Ross
One of the great advantages of cremation – apart from all sanitary conditions – lies in the swift restoration to Mother Nature of the material elements composing the physical and astral corpses, brought about by the burning.
Annie Besant
I have fantasies of burning down an insurance company just so THEY have to make a claim.
Alonzo Bodden
When it came to spankings, my dad never used a belt. One time he grabbed a piece of my Hot Wheels race car track. In my mind I’m thinking, ‘Great, now I’m being beaten with my own toys…’ Thank God I didn’t get that wood burning set I wanted.
Scott Wood
A strong reputation is like a good bonfire. When you have one kindled it’s easy to keep the flame burning, even if someone comes along and tries to piss on it. But if you fall asleep and neglect it…You’ll wake up with ashes.
Zachary Taylor
How well I know with what burning intensity you live. You have experienced many lives already, including several you have shared with me- full rich lives from birth to death, and you just have to have these rest periods in between.
Anais Nin
It is only those who hope to transform human beings who end up by burning them, like the waste product of a failed experiment.
Christopher Hitchens
The foods that prolong life and increase purity, vigour, health, cheerfulness, and happiness are those that are delicious, soothing, substantial and agreeable… Foods that are bitter, sour, salt, over-hot, pungent, dry and burning produce unhappiness, repentance and disease.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There is a peculiar burning odor in the room, like explosives. the kitchen fills with smoke and the hot, sweet, ashy smell of scorched cookies. The war has begun.
Alison Lurie
No nation, savage or civilized, save only the United States of America, has confessed its inability to protect its women save by hanging, shooting, and burning alleged offenders.
Ida B. Wells
I think every religious person should have a deep sense of respect for other people’s religious documents and religious symbols just as we were deeply opposed to the Taliban destroying the two historic buddhas which they blew up. So I think we ought to all oppose burning the Koran.
Newt Gingrich
Many a man who might walk over burning ploughshares into heaven stumbles from the path because there is gravel in his shoes.
Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
Bruce Lee
Ne reprenez, dame, si j’ai aime , Si j’ai senti mille torches ardentes, Mille travaux, mille douleurs mordantes, Si, en pleurant, j’ai mon temps consume . Do not blame me, madam, if I loved, If I felt one thousand burning torches, One thousand labours, or one thousand scathing pains, If, in crying, I spent all my time.
Louise Labe
I sold my soul to the devil. I’m going to hell. I’m headed to hell. I want the money, the women, the fortune, and the fame. That Means I’ll end up burning in hell scorching in flames. Satan’ll be in to see me later to see if I’m interested in being partners. Devil worshippin’, Satan music.
At the demonstration of sixty feminists against the Miss America Pageant in 1968, when the women filled a trash can with bras, girdles, curlers and spike-heeled shoes, the bra-burning myth was launched by the media and, in spite of its inaccuracy and spiteful intent, put radical feminism on the map.
Hilda Scott
When you feel the burn, that’s when you know you’re doing an exercise correctly. If you’re doing 20 crunches, and you’re not struggling, make an adjustment so they’re harder to do. Don’t cheat yourself. If it isn’t burning, you’re not getting stronger.
Gretchen Bleiler
One of the best ways of enslaving a people is to keep them from education… The second way of enslaving a people is to suppress the sources of information, not only by burning books but by controlling all the other ways in which ideas are transmitted.
Eleanor Roosevelt
The sun burnt every day. It burnt Time. The world rushed in a circle and turned on its axis and time was busy burning the years and the people anyway, without any help from him. So if he burnt things with the firemen, and the sun burnt Time, that meant everything burnt!
Ray Bradbury
Can’t decide which life or career path is right for you? Maybe you don’t have to! In The Renaissance Soul, Margaret Lobenstine offers inspiration, advice, and practical tips for people with more than one burning passion.
Laurence Boldt
I call for actors burning at the stakes, laughing at the flames.
Antonin Artaud
When I was 20, 21 years old, I had just got married. Put yourself in my wife’s shoes. All of these fans all across the world would have Donny Osmond burning – record-burning parties. They would put my albums and burn them.
Donny Osmond
You want to be burning calories after you work out. The problem becomes for most people – it’s not pleasant, it’s painful. You have to have the pain tolerance to be able to deal with that, which a lot of people do not.
Brett Hoebel
I described the euro as a burning building with no exits and so it has proved for some of the countries in it.
William Hague
All philanthropy — no age has seen more of it than our own — is only a savoury fumigation burning at the mouth of a sewer.
Ellen Key
Miss Tarabotti was not one of life’s milk-water misses–in fact, quite the opposite. Many a gentleman had likened his first meeting with her to downing a very strong cognac when one was expecting to imbibe fruit juice–that is to say, startling and apt to leave one with a distinct burning sensation.
Gail Carriger
I sort of feel sorry for gays being the last ones at the sexual revolution window. We’ve had liberalizing rules on divorce. We’ve had the sexual revolution. We’ve had, you know, the pill, and burning bras and rampant premarital sex and polymorphous perversity.
Ann Coulter
the Coleman lantern is the symbol of the camping craze that is currently sweeping America, with its unholy white light burning in the forests of America.
Richard Brautigan
We are all burning in time, but each is consumed
at his own speed.
Jack Gilbert
It is impossible to separate works from faith- yea, just as impossible as to separate burning and shining from fire.
Martin Luther
Our hearts are lamps for ever burning.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
If burning fossil fuels was so bad that it threatened our very existence, how could we just continue like before? Why were there no restrictions? Why wasn’t it made illegal? To me, that did not add up.
Greta Thunburg
Ladies and Gentleman, the Bronx is burning.
Howard Cosell
The entire time I’m burning in Hell, I’ll regret each tear I made you weep. But if Hell were the price for twenty days with you, I’d condemn myself again and again. – Cian MacKeltar
Karen Marie Moning
Back in pre-Revolutionary America cruel and unusual punishment meant the rack and burning at the stake… in more recent rulings it has been taken to mean the absence of cable television and denial of sex-change operations, or just overcrowding in the prisons.
Tom Clancy
Death is staring too long into the burning sun and the relief of entering a cool, dark room.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
When your house is burning down, you don’t worry about the remodeling.
Arianna Huffington
She turned to him, her cheeks burning red. “What is this? Vampire porn?” “Yep.” “Oh, and this is a good one. Muffy the Vampire Layer.
Larissa Ione
But anything worth doing is worth doing badly. Like being there by that summer ocean on the other side of the island while love was fading out of her, the stars burning so extravagantly those nights that anyone could tell you they would never last.
Jack Gilbert
The stone throwing and house burning is no longer a face of Kenya . Kenya is now a destination for investment and tourism.

Wes Fesler
Pain seared through me again-a hot, burning stab in my gut-and yet my body found strength I didn’t know I had, correcting as I fell.
Ally Carter
This is the first kiss that we’re both fully aware of. Neither of us hobbled by sickness or pain or simply unconscious. Our lips neither burning with fever or icy cold. This is the first kiss where I actually feel stirring inside my chest. Warm and curious. This is the first kiss that makes me want another.
Suzanne Collins
I love it when people yell at me about the environment and then I tell ’em I’m burning 90% cleaner than them.
Neil Young
Do you want to know the closest thing to feeling the most powerful you can feel ? Flying alone at night.Risky.Nothing but you and the wind soaring way above everything , Slicing through the air like a Sword. Up and up until you feel like you can grab a star and hold it to your chest like a burning, Spiky thing
James Patterson
People who have achieved great success are not necessarily more skillful or intelligent than others. What separates them is their burning desire and thirst for knowledge. The more one knows, the more one achieves.
Robin Sharma
It’s as certain that as long as fossil fuels are the cheapest energy, we will just keep burning them.
James Hansen
There is the same difference in a person before and after he is in love, as there is in an unlighted lamp and one that is burning.

James Lovelock
I have way too many candles. There’s always a candle burning at home.

Elizabeth Cunningham
Books won’t stay banned. They won’t burn. Ideas won’t go to jail.
Alfred Whitney Griswold
It doesn’t take a genius to pump up the GNP [of a developing country] by burning down rainforests, using slave labor and social repression to keep things in place.
Hazel Henderson
I also started writing songs because I had this burning activity in my heart and had to express myself.
Annie Lennox
Never Again the Burning.
Isaac Bonewits
I got really paranoid, burning every song onto three CDs and hiding them in various places around the house just in case I got burgled and there was, y’know, a fire in my bedroom. I told friends where I was hiding them in case I was killed.
Max Tundra
People who believe in freedom of expression have spent several centuries fighting against censorship, in whatever form. We have to be certain the ‘Net’ doesn’t become the site for technological book burning.
John Ralston Saul
The only reason an indie gets made is because someone has a burning passion to do it and won’t take no for an answer, as opposed to a big film, which is like a train that starts rolling down the tracks and nothing can stop it.
William H. Macy
Those who direct the maximum force of their desires toward the center, toward true being, toward perfection, seem quieter than the passionate souls because the flame of their fervor cannot always be seen.
Hermann Hesse
Burning Man is like a big family picnic. Would you sell things to one another at a family picnic? No, you’d share things.

Napoleon Bonaparte
What is the difference between burning and gassing people in ovens and doing it to a whole nation out in the open?
Norodom Sihanouk
Truth. It feels cool, like water washing over my sticky-hot body. Cooling a heat that’s been burning me up all my life. Truth, I say inside my head again, just for that feeling.
Kathryn Stockett
He felt his smile slide away, melt, fold over and down on itself like a tallow skin, like the stuff of a fantastic candle burning too long and now collapsing and now blown out.
Ray Bradbury
Coffee is healthy in a way. It gives us many benefits. It has caffeine which is found in almost every commercial fat-burning supplement – and for good reason. It’s one of the few natural substances proven to aid fat burning.
Amrapali Gupta
There will come a time when the world will look back to modern vivisection in the name of science, as they do now to burning at the stake in the name of religion.
Kathryn Bigelow
A terrible violence of creation,A flash into the burning heart of the abominable;Yet if we wait, unafraid, beyond the fearful instant,The burning lake turns into a forest pool,The fire subsides into rings of water,A sunlit silence.
Theodore Roethke
At one point, I animated villains in our stories, a bear or a giant, then on The Little Mermaid Ariel just called to me and I started to fall in love with characters who had that burning desire inside of them, this hope.
Glen Keane
In Africa, when an old man dies, it’s a library burning.
Amadou Hampate Ba
He was my equal in beauty, a paragon of grace and charm, sparkling with wit, and burning with love. I adored him to distraction, to the point of idolatry: I loved him as one can never love twice.
Love is the burning point of life, and since all life is sorrowful, so is love. The stronger the love, the more the pain. Love itself is pain, you might say -the pain of being truly alive.
Joseph Campbell
Carter started down the stairs, but I grabbed his arm. “Hang on. What about traps?” He frowned. “Traps?” “Didn’t Egyptian tombs have traps?” “Well…sometimes. But this isn’t a tomb. Besides, more often they had curses, like the burning curse, the donkey curse—” “Oh, lovely. That sounds so much better.
Rick Riordan
I don’t see myself necessarily having a burning desire to write a symphony.
Danny Elfman
Southern change gonna come at last! Now your crosses are burning fast, Southern Man.
Neil Young
I like fiction that deals with matters that are of burning importance to us in our private lives. And not all short stories are like that. In general, short stories – and maybe this is a little bit off-topic – but I think short stories have this bad association with, like, waiting rooms.
Lorin Stein
He was not used to the smell of dragon breath, which is best described as a combination of the stench of burning rubber and the stink of old socks, with overtones of a hamster cage in dire need of a cleaning.
Angie Sage
A burning passion coupled with absolute detachment is the key to all success.
Mahatma Gandhi
Suppose you had a cross burning in a play or a movie… Would that be intimidating?
Sandra Day O’Connor
Is it not common to say to a child, ‘Put your finger in that candle, can you bear it even for one minute?’ How then will you bear Hell-fire? Surely it would be torment enough to have the flesh burnt off from only one finger; what then will it be to have the whole body plunged into a lake of fire, burning with brimstone?
John Wesley
And Mocha’s berry, from Arabia pure, In small fine china cups, came in at last. Gold cups of filigree, made to secure the hand from burning, underneath them place. Cloves, cinnamon and saffron, too, were boiled Up with the coffee, which, I think, they spoiled.
Lord Byron
I am burning myself up and will always do so.
Jean Cocteau
I like writers who seem to write because they have to. You get the feeling of this burning desire to tell a story. I find it in Peter Carey, Nicola Barker, Ali Smith and David Foster Wallace.
Patrick Ness
I mean, I’d like to see (Mitt Romney’s) house burn, one of his millions of houses burning down. It would be kind of cool – the Mormon fire patrol.
Joy Behar
Do not believe that living together before marriage guarantees the future. By burning certain stages, you risk burning love itself. Time needs to be respected gradually, just like the expressions of love.
Pope Benedict XVI
Bra-burning never happened. It was completely made up by the media. A couple of women protesting a Miss America pageant threw some bras into a garbage can, and somehow that became this longstanding idea of feminists as bra-burners.
Jessica Valenti
Like most people who smoked umpteen cigarettes a day, I tasted only the first one. The succeeding umpteen minus one were a compulsive ritual which had no greater savour than the fumes of burning money.
Clive James
We age inevitably:
The old joys fade and are gone:
And at last comes equanimity and the flame burning clear.
James Oppenheim
There was a still life on Billy’s bedside table-two pills, an ashtray with three lipstick-stained cigarettes in it, one cigarette still burning, and a glass of water. The water was dead. So it goes. Air was trying to get out of the dead water. Bubbles were clinging to the walls of the glass, too weak to climb out.
Kurt Vonnegut
To have found God and still to pursue Him is the soul’s paradox of love, scorned indeed by the too-easily-satisfied religionist, but justified in happy experience by the children of the burning heart.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
Attempting to liberate the oppressed without their reflective participation in the act of liberation is to treat them as objects that must be saved from a burning building.
Paulo Freire
Said I, in scorn all burning hot,In rage and anger high,”You ignominious idiot,Those wings are made to fly!
Charlotte Perkins Gilman
We are to forgive so that we may enjoy God’s goodness without feeling the weight of anger burning deep within our hearts. Forgiveness does not mean we recant the fact that what happened to us was wrong. Instead, we roll our burdens onto the Lord and allow Him to carry them for us.
Charles Stanley
Persecuting bigots may be compared to those burning lenses which Lenhenboeck and others composed from ice; by their chilling apathy they freeze the suppliant; by their fiery zeal they burn the sufferer.
Charles Caleb Colton
Dont worry about people telling you to stop doing too much and that you will burn out. Burning out is mental, and if you are tough you can do anything.
Dathan Ritzenhein
If you live your life burning for the highest possibility, in that burning itself, there is liberation.
Jaggi Vasudev
Everyone of them words rang true and glowed like burning coal, pouring off every page like it was written in my soul from me to you.
Bob Dylan
No statement, theological or otherwise, should be made that would not be credible in the presence of burning children.
Irving Greenberg
Our secret thoughts – do they ever show up? The small flame of our soul can be burning hot, but no one comes to its warmth. Passersby see only a small whiff going through the chimney. Don’t we need to take care of that flame, cherish it and patiently wait until someone will come and sit at it, do we?
Irving Stone
The miracle is not to walk on water, or in the air, or on burning charcoal. The miracle is to walk on earth. You breathe in, you become aware of the fact that you are alive. You are alive and you are walking on this beautiful planet. The greatest of of all miracles is to be alive.
Nhat Hanh
There’s no replacement for having a burning desire to talk about something: ‘I know this and other people need to know!’
Adam Conover
What will the preachers say? .. to teach men not to persecute men: for, while a few sanctimonious humbugs are burning a few fanatics, the earth opens and swallows up all alike.
I don’t have any particular burning desire to go back to being cuddly. Not really.
Hugh Grant
I don’t have a burning passion to live in America per se but I would certainly like to work there.
Cillian Murphy
Book burnings. Always the forerunners. Heralds of the stake, the ovens, the mass graves.
Geraldine Brooks
Choosing individual stocks without any idea of what you’re looking for is like running through a dynamite factory with a burning match. You may live, but you’re still an idiot.
Joel Greenblatt
Theres a wideness in Gods mercy
I cannot find in my own
And He keeps His fire burning
To melt this heart of stone
Keeps me aching with a yearning
Keeps me glad to have been caught
In the reckless raging fury
That they call the love of God
Rich Mullins
This generation is burning the mass media to the ground.
Julian Assange
Yep, Atlanta was burning. Again.
Ilona Andrews
It is not so much light that falls over the world extended by your body its suffocating snow, as brightness, pouring itself out of you, as if you were burning inside. Under your skin the moon is alive.
Pablo Neruda
The custom of burning a beneficent god is too foreign to later modes of thought to escape misinterpretation.
James G. Frazer
There is a kind of virtue that lies not in extraordinary actions, not in saving poor orphans from burning buildings, but in steadfastly working for a world where orphans are not poor and buildings comply with decent fire codes.
Randy Cohen
I’ve never looked ahead very much in my life. I’ve never had any grand plan from the outset. I had no burning ambition to do what I do
Tracey Ullman
Don’t be a writer, it’s a terrible way to live your life, there’s nothing to be gained from it but poverty and obscurity and solitude. So if you have a taste for all those things, which means that you really are burning to do it, then go ahead and do it.
Paul Auster
God is not usually a burning bush in my life. He’s usually a very quiet whisper. And he never shows up too early…but he’s also never late, either.
Anne Marie Miller
When God makes His presence felt through us, we are like the burning bush: Moses never took any heed what sort of bush it was—he only saw the brightness of the Lord.
George Eliot
No opinion is worth burning your neighbor for.
Unfortunately, the true force which propels our endless political disputes, our constant struggles for political advantage, is often not our burning concern for democracy, it is often of our dedication to the principle of the rule of law.
Olusegun Obasanjo
Maybe the ones burning my jersey were never LeBron fans anyway.
LeBron James
Martha Stewart denied allegations that she had been given inside information to sell 4,000 shares of a stock in a biotech firm. Stewart then showed her audience how to make a festive, quick-burning yule log out of freshly-shredded financial documents.
Dennis Miller
This was good, except that now I had two crazed, burning zombies standing between me and the exit, plus another one that wasn’t on fire. I had not thought this plan through at all.
Amanda Hocking
In the deepest pits of ‘Ell, Where the worst defaulters dwell (Charcoal devils used as fuel as you require ’em), There’s some lovely coloured rays, Pyrotechnical displays, But you can’t expect the burning to admire ’em!
Edgar Wallace
Is burning an American flag a disgusting, reprehensible act? Yes, it absolutely is, and I would tell that to the face of absolutely anyone who has done so.
Kat Timpf
I defy any of my coreligionists to tell me they do not laugh at the idea of Dawkins burning in hell.
Ann Coulter
The future is like smoke from a burning forest, waiting for the wind of specific events and personal courage to blow the sparks and embers of reality this way or that.
Dan Simmons
The thing for me is I never had this burning desire to do a solo record my whole life.
Julian Casablancas
A child born in a wealthy country is likely to consume, waste, and pollute more in his lifetime than 50 children born in developing nations. Our energy-burning lifestyles are pushing our planet to the point of no return. It is dawning on us at last that the life of our world is as vulnerable as the children we raise.
George Carey
There is no country… where there are not somewhere lovers of freedom who look to this country to carry the torch and keep it burning bright until such time as they may again be able to light their extinguished torches at our flame. We owe it not only to our own people but to the world to preserve our soul for that.
Stanley Baldwin
The mental powers acquire their full robustness when the cheek loses its ruddy hue, and the limbs their elastic step; and pale thought sits on manly brows, and the watchman, as he walks his rounds, sees the student’s lamp burning far into the silent night.
Thomas Guthrie
There is something in the human spirit that will survive and prevail, there is a tiny and brilliant light burning in the heart of man that will not go out no matter how dark the world becomes.
Leo Tolstoy
As far back as I can remember, I have worshipped the sun. My skin is fair, but as the years have gone by, it has toughened and darkened. I now turn a rich golden brown every summer, but only after the first day of burning.
Jane Green
There are a lot of people doing good work, but we need to get the burning of fossil fuels off the highways and speedways of the world, so that we’ll step up on global warming.
John B. Goodenough
As the country continues to dissect the recent natural disaster, we might want to start considering what about the disaster wasn’t actually ‘natural’ at all. … Human activity, the burning of fossil fuels, is causing global warming. Global warming is causing the oceans to warm. Warm oceans are steroids for storms.
Michael Moore
Over time, the federal government should move the nation to a single standard, clean-burning gasoline.
Mark Kirk
In the early days, I had everything to prove. A very working class lad with a burning ambition. A very crude way of measuring success is how much you are worth.
John Caudwell
Sometimes they [people] throw off their freedom so quickly, you’d think it was burning them.
Steve Toltz
I hate witches. Humans had the right idea, burning them at the stake.
Charlaine Harris
An inner knowing, along with a burning desire, is the prerequisite for becoming a person capable of manifesting his or her heart’s desires.
Wayne Dyer
that’s what it was like waking up in the crypts. no-longer-dead. but without her. like burning alive.
Lauren Oliver
He tasted each one of them. The raw power and majesty of Wrath. The vast strength of Rhage. The burning, protective loyalty of Phury. The cold savagery of Zsadist. The sharp cunning of Vishous.
J.R. Ward
Perhaps this war will pass like the others which divided us leaving us dead, killing us along with the killers but the shame of this time puts its burning fingers to our faces. Who will erase the ruthlessness hidden in innocent blood?
Pablo Neruda
By burning nuclear waste as fuel, we believe we can power the United States cleanly for hundreds of years without ever touching new resources.
Nathan Myhrvold
Great sex is not a pleasant soak in the tub, with the scented candle burning. Great sex is more like a bomb exploding inside your right mind.
Amy Bloom
A life that is truly lived is constantly burning away the veils of illusion, gradually revealing the essence of the individual.
Marion Woodman
Light coursed through Karou and darkness chased it-burning through her, chilling her, shimmer and shadow, ice and fire, blood and starlight, rushing, roaring, filling her.
Laini Taylor
Listen, there’s an expiration date for everything, but I mean, we’re not burning out on ‘Top Models,’ are we? We’re not burning out on making things in a ‘Runway’ room, are we? We’re not getting enough ‘Got Talent,’ right? We’ll never run out of talent. So, how could there be a ‘Drag’ burnout?
Michelle Visage
In them was not the savage blankness of the reptile species. Instead there was something far worse – burning, unquenchable rage mixed with the self-mocking irony of great intelligence.
Whitley Strieber
Firefighters go where they’re needed, sometimes ignoring the dangers even when no one is inside a burning building to be saved.
Bill Dedman
Opinionated writing is always the most difficult… simply because it involves retaining in the cold morning-after crystal of the printed word the burning flow of molten feeling.
Gavin Lyall
Sometimes it’s a short step from banning to burning.
Howard Zinn
Burning fossil fuels is like breaking up the furniture to feed the fireplace because it’s easier than going out to the woodpile.
Theodore Roosevelt
Very few people possess true artistic ability. It is therefore both unseemly and unproductive to irritate the situation by making an effort. If you have a burning, restless urge to write or paint, simply eat something sweet and the feeling will pass.
Fran Lebowitz
Material loss can be made up through renewed labor, but the moral wrong which has been inflicted upon the conquered peoples, in the peace dictates, leaves a burning scar on the people’s conscience.
Hjalmar Schacht
The Hebrew language… is the only glue which holds together our scattered bones. It also holds together the rings in the chain of time…. It binds us to those who built pyramids, to those who shed their blood on the ramparts of Jerusalem, and to those who, at the burning stakes, cried Shema Yisrael!
I. L. Peretz
Do you recall the story of the young Yogi in the MahГўbhГўrata who prided himself on his psychic powers by burning the bodies of a crow and crane by his intense will, produced by anger?
Swami Vivekananda
I mean, I always think when you’re an actor you have to be the guy running into the burning building rather than running out of it, if you want to make some noise as an actor.
Dylan McDermott
Given the choice of apathy or someone liberating mink, burning down a research torture-laboratory, or killing a vivisectionist or other DIRECT murderer of animals, I will choose the aforesaid actions over apathy any day of the week.-
Gary Yourofsky
The scariest thing about receiving praise at a young age is the fear of burning out or losing it, or proving people right that you were just a novelty. Obviously, I can see mistakes in things that I’ve done or said and can see flaws in things I’ve made, but that’s just part of growing.
Tavi Gevinson
Proving naysayers wrong is a powerful tool, and it can keep the fire burning for preparation that will keep you in the game of your choice for a long time.
Mark Schlereth
The Occupy Wall Street project feels like a burning ember that might light the torch of justice and inflame our longing for freedom.
James A. Forbes
Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
Gautama Buddha
We would be 1,500 years ahead if it hadn’t been for the church dragging science back by its coattails and burning our best minds at the stake.
Catherine Fahringer
The wounds were burning like suns at five in the afternoon, and the crowd broke the windows At five in the afternoon. Ah, that fatal five in the afternoon! It was five by all the clocks! It was five in the shade of the afternoon!
Federico Garcia Lorca
Desire is one of the burning experiences of human life.
Lionel Shriver
If you see what you do each day as your way of loving the world and helping it heal, then life gets to be a lot different. The difference between burning up and burning out is the difference between loving what you are doing and not loving it.
Bernie Siegel
I was told that it was cool to fall in love, and that period was nothing like that to me. I gave too much of my time and energy to another person and they did the same to me and we started burning out against each other. And that is what is termed love.
David Bowie
I had a burning ambition. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have accomplished it.
Claire Bloom
And it is true that life lacks the monotony of museums. There come days which seem worthy of being framed, but they are so full of conflicting sounds, of line and color and living, burning light that they never become tedious.
Italo Svevo
Not their love of humanity, but the impotence of their love, prevents the Christians of today – burning us.
Friedrich Nietzsche
How can we extinguish a fire if we don’t first cut off the fuel that ignites the inferno?
Arun Manilal Gandhi
As it stands right now, I lead Richard Pryor in heart attacks, two to one. However, Richard still leads me, one to nothing, in burning yourself up.
George Carlin
Every death is like the burning of a library.
Alex Haley
I said: what about my eyes?
God said: Keep them on the road.
I said: what about my passion?
God said: Keep it burning.
I said: what about my heart?
God said: Tell me what you hold inside it?
I said: pain and sorrow?
He said: Stay with it. The wound is the place where the Light enters you.
And what I was feeling was the wonder Of being more than me, of being more Than mere here and now allowed I had become a shining star, a burning nova Exploded with love Flying through an endlessly Expanding universe Away from the me that was Toward a me that is beyond Understanding.
Walter Dean Myers
‘Will,’ she whispered against his mouth. She wanted him closer to her so badly, it was like an ache, a painful hot ache that spread from her stomach to speed her heart and knot her hands in his hair and set her skin burning. ‘Will, you need not be so careful. I will not break.’
Cassandra Clare
All of creation is alive and conscious, and all of creation deserves our burning, churning, yearning love. All of it. Not just the people and creatures and things that we personally find beautiful and helpful and interesting. But everything. All of creation.
Rob Brezsny
Things that burn very brightly, we wonder how long they can keep burning.
Nick Woodman
In your 40s, you kind of know how things are likely to go, and you’re better at saying, ‘You know what? That just doesn’t suit me…’ I remember thinking in my 30s, ‘I should go to Burning Man. I could be a Burning Man person.’ And in my 40s, I’m like, ‘You know what? I’m never going to go to Burning Man.’
Pamela Druckerman
For me feminism is bra-burning lesbianism. It’s very unglamorous.
Geri Halliwell
Think of a space in your heart, and in the midst of that space think that a flame is burning. Think of that a flame is burning. Think of that flame as your own soul and inside the flame is another effulgent light, and that is the Soul of your soul, God. Meditate upon that in the heart.
Swami Vivekananda
Criminality is now legal. I guess criminal racketeering these days would be like burning little children at the stake or something. That’s about what it takes to get anyone to care.
Alex Jones
No matter what face he wears, Satan has one overmastering ambition, one burning desire-to dethrone the Almighty and to place himself upon the highest throne of the universe.
Adrian Rogers
Crying adds something: crying is you, plus tears. But the feeling Colin had was some horrible opposite of crying. It was you, minus something. He kept thinking about one word – forever – and felt the burning ache just beneath his rib cage.
John Green
All you need is something to say, and a burning desire to say it… it doesn’t matter where your hands are.
Lou Holtz
‘The Burning Dark’ needs a certain kind of soundtrack – something dark and moody, electronic, weird. One of my favourite bands is Ladytron, and I think they’d fit the bill quite well.
Adam Christopher
When life descends into the pit I must become my own candle Willingly burning my self To light up the darkness around me.
Alice Walker
Burning all the fossil fuels will destroy the planet we know, Creation, the planet of stable climate in which civilization developed.
James Hansen
Burning 2000 people took about 24 hours in the five stoves. Usually we could manage to cremate only about 1700 to 1800. We were thus always behind in our cremating because as you can see it was much easier to exterminate by gas than to cremate, which took so much more time and labor.
Rudolf Hoss
There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.
Napoleon Hill
I don’t want to give people the wrong advice to follow their dreams no matter what, because it’s not fun to be a starving artist. But on the other hand, life is short, and if you are burning with a passion to do something, then do it. Work hard, study hard at it, and don’t give up.
Marjorie Liu
There are good photographers who might elevate themselves to the ranks of the great simply by burning most of their work.
Janet Malcolm
My mouth is a fire escape. The words coming out don’t care that they are naked. There is something burning in there.
Andrea Gibson
She wears trouble like a crown. If she ever falls in love, she’ll fall like a comet, burning the sky as she goes.
Holly Black
Our apologies, good friends, for the fracture of good order, the burning of paper instead of children. How many must die before our voices are heard, how many must be tortured, dislocated, starved, maddened? When, at what point, will you say no to this war?
Daniel Berrigan
Well, my book is written-let it go. But if it were only to write over again there wouldn’t be so many things left out. They burn in me; and they keep multiplying; but now they can’t ever be said. And besides, they would require a library-and a pen warmed up in hell.
Mark Twain
Ingratitude is the soul’s enemy… Ingratitude is a burning wind that dries up the source of love, the dew of mercy, the streams of grace.
Bernard of Clairvaux
Now I have neither happiness nor unhappiness.Everything passes.That is the one and only thing that I have thought resembled a truth in the society of human beings where I have dwelled up to now as in a burning hell.Everything passes.
Osamu Dazai
When I’m off the road, my husband and I recharge our batteries. It’s a day of deep rest and connection with the spiritual, and that can be anything – going for a walk in nature, being in silence, burning incense.
Alanis Morissette
When Daniel Boone goes by at night The phantom deer arise And all lost, wild America Is burning in their eyes.
Stephen Vincent Benet
Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.
Leonard Cohen
Music is more than just listening to it. People use the music for them protection at times.
Burning Spear
Well, my type is obviously creative. Creative, with burning eyes and a pretty mouth.
Vanessa Paradis
Solving climate change is a complex topic, but in a single crude brush-stroke, here is the solution: the price of carbon dioxide must be such that people stop burning coal without capture.
David J. C. MacKay
Destroying green belt agricultural land for immediate economic gain is like burning your children’s inheritance to cook a single meal
Phil Harding
The body responds to a calorie deficit by slowing down the metabolism and burning muscle tissue. That leads to weakness, sluggishness, slow times. In girls, it can also result in cessation of menstrual periods, which in turn leads to loss of bone density and frequent stress fractures.
Don Kardong
What we say in private we must be willing to say with a heart burning with love and honor before the face of our leaders. If not, we will poison our spirits and it will manifest in the presence of our leaders.
John Bevere
Is it eradicating evil? Or are we like children, left alone in the house at night, who light candle after candle to keep away the darkness. We don’t see that the darkness has a purpose — though we may not understand it — and so, in our terror, we end up burning down the house!
Margaret Weis
By burning Luther’s books you may rid your bookshelves of him, but you will not rid men’s minds of him.
Desiderius Erasmus
Sometimes you wish you could keep quiet. It’s the kind of thing you heard the prophet Jeremiah complain of where he says, “You know God, I didn’t want to be a prophet and you made me speak words of condemnation against a people I love deeply. Your word is like a fire burning in my breast.”
Desmond Tutu
Abstracts, abridgments, summaries, etc., have the same use with burning-glasses,–to collect the diffused light rays of wit and learning in authors, and make them point with warmth and quickness upon the reader’s imagination.
Jonathan Swift
Great leadership is not the visit of an unexpected fate but rather a flame which is kept burning in spite of the winds of risk and opposition.
Mary Anne Radmacher
What is in the Constitution is the burning desire and aspiration of all the people of Vietnam. So for the moment, we don’t think about opposition parties.
Nong ?uc Manh
All that mattered was that something had struck the match, and Gansey was burning.
Maggie Stiefvater
A lot of people are burning’ C.D.’s. There are a lot of people burnin’ peoples stuff, and that hurts a lot of rappers.
Lil Boosie
I had a burning ambition. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have accomplished it
Claire Bloom
You can find shame in every house, burning in an ashtray, hanging framed upon a wall, covering a bed. But nobody notices it any more.
Salman Rushdie
I have lived in Norfolk all my life. It inspires me, the sea, the limitless skies, the mud and the burning sunsets and the freedom of a place where more than 50% of the neighbours are fish.
Raffaella Barker
You have independent films and independent music, but you don’t have independent theme parks – I think, in a way, Burning Man is as close, probably, as you get.
Peter Gabriel
There is no doubt there is more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, caused by the burning of fossil fuels. It should have an effect on the climate, but the numbers indicate that effect is relatively minor.
John Christy
During the Spanish conquest of Mesoamerica in the 16th century, the Catholic Church’s Friar Diego de Landa supervised the burning of hundreds of Maya codices – fig-bark books rich in mythological and astronomical information. Only four Maya codices are known to have survived.
David Roberts
In ‘Legend,’ I was burning with ego. In ‘JJN,’ I am playing someone who can die for his prestige.
Jagapathi Babu
I think everyone should pursue their dreams. Whether you want to play football, act, sing, become a writer or whatever you have burning inside you as you’re growing up, you should pursue it.
Tom Hiddleston
True science is distinctively the study of useless things. For the useful things will get studied without the aid of scientific men. To employ these rare minds on such work is like running a steam engine by burning diamonds.
Charles Sanders Peirce
It wasn’t like I made his world better. It was like I was his world. It wasn’t some explosion; it wasn’t fireworks. It was a fire, burning slowly from the inside out.
Kiera Cass
Pouring out liquor is like burning books.
William Faulkner
I happily claim expertise in no single aspect of climbing, which is what has kept the passion burning hot all these years.
Alex Lowe
And as we know now, and as I pointed out many times, the great plume of fire at the bottom of the Space Shuttle is actually dollar bills burning, and the most efficient method of destroying American dollar bills as has ever been devised by man.
Dana Rohrabacher
When I was 11, I burned a field down by mistake. It was an empty field, probably about 10 acres in size. Me and my friend were lighting firecrackers, and we ended up burning down the entire field. We got found out, and I think I was grounded for about three months.
Christopher Masterson
Most of the soap operas always use the Christmas special to kill huge quantities of their characters. So they have trams coming off their rails, or cars slamming into each other or burning buildings. It’s a general clean-out.
Julian Fellowes
I don’t think that there’s a burning hunger in the wrestling world to see me necessarily wrestle anybody.
Christopher Daniels
As soon as you tell me to do one thing, I do the opposite. As soon as someone tells me not to get any more tattoos, I have this intense fire burning inside me to cover myself with them. I don’t care if it’s self-destructive. I just have that need to rebel.
Megan Fox
For me, there is a stigma attached to playing beautiful parts. They are often empty characters whom the action happens around. I’m more drawn to characters with a complex internal life, who have a burning frustration underneath that keeps them going.
Ruth Wilson
The Supreme Court is expected to rule this week whether banning cross burning by groups like the Klu Klux Klan violates the first amendment. The outcome could affect the entertainment at Trent Lott’s Christmas party.
Tina Fey
Here’s what you must do. It’s pretty simple, really, but I didn’t say easy. It’s what sets those who succeed apart from those who don’t: You must have a sincere and burning desire to achieve what you dream, dedicate yourself to making progress, and take control of your circumstances to change your body.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
You’ve got to be a little vicious. You’ve got to be narcissistic. You’ve got to be on fire about your career.
Howard Stern
I want to tear myself from this place, from this reality, rise up like a cloud and float away, melt into this humid summer night and dissolve somewhere far, over the hills. But I am here, my legs blocks of concrete, my lungs empty of air, my throat burning. There will be no floating away.
Khaled Hosseini
Don’t underestimate Laura Antonelli. She’s burning to do well. And then she has an extraordinary face, even without make-up. It’s not with her that I’d discuss literature. I speak only of the film ‘L’Innocente,’ and what she does she does well.
Luchino Visconti
We were one of the hottest bands in Jersey, but I was burning up because I knew I’d never be a star in Newark. I knew the action was in Nashville and that’s where I wanted to be.
Eddie Rabbitt
One of the first laws against air pollution came in 1300 when King Edward I decreed the death penalty for burning of coal. At least one execution for that offense is recorded. But economics triumphed over health considerations, and air pollution became an appalling problem in England.
Glenn T. Seaborg
The difference between the mile and the marathon is the difference between burning your fingers with a match and being slowly roasted over hot coals.
Hal Higdon
Some of my old memories feel trapped in amber in my brain, lucid and burning, while others are like the wing beat of a hummingbird, an intangible, ephemeral blur.
Mira Bartok
I am a fairly physical guy I stay in shape and do a lot of karate and that kind of stuff. I prefer to do my own stunts if it’s possible. I’m not jumping off burning buildings or something, but rolling around and getting knocked down and stuff like that I get a kick out of.
Nick Damici
I made a conscious decision to take my life and career in a different direction. I started working on a play, and also, by attending Burning Man for several years, I was incredibly stimulated by the art there. I increasingly wanted to be a part of it, and focused on what I wanted to say as an artist.
Scott Cohen
Life is an adventure of passion, risk, danger, laughter, beauty, love; a burning curiosity to go with the action to see what it is all about, to go search for a pattern of meaning, to burn one’s bridges because you’re never going to go back anyway, and to live to the end.
Saul Alinsky
An idea is like a spark to creativity, which turns to a wild conflagration of thoughts, burning every ignorance. When the fire burns, the creative power is awake, and comes out to join the ideas in your head to bring out the hidden valuables the world never knew
Michael Bassey
We remember the heroes who ran into the burning buildings to rescue those trapped inside, and the dauntless passengers on Flight 93 who laid down their lives to save others, including almost certainly those of us in the U.S. Capitol.
Todd Tiahrt
The consensus is clear. We need an immediate and determined shift to a clean, renewable economy. The continued mass burning of fossil fuels is inconsistent with a healthy, prosperous future for our civilization.
Al Gore
The sun was a molten coin burning a circle in the low-hanging overcast, surrounded by a fairy-ring of moisture.
Stephen King
I felt the exultancy of a man just released from slavery and ready to set the universe on fire.
William Styron
The eating of burning brimstone is an entirely fake performance.
Harry Houdini
It is only with burning anger that we can speak of this attack by counter-revolutionary reactionary elements against the capital of our country, against our people’s democratic order and the power of the working class.
Janos Kadar
Chasing a burning girl down a city street is a lot harder than it sounds. Civilians tend to stop and stare and this turns them into human bowling pins. Slow whiny bowling pins.
Richard Kadrey
the invisible sun burning beyond
the white cold sky, giving us
light and the chimney’s shadow.
Denise Levertov
If you were in a burning house and there was a cat and a Rembrandt, what would you save? The cat…you would save the cat, because the cat is alive. The art is dead. It’s just paint on a canvas, ink on a page. To live for art is to deny life. It’s just to destroy life.
Diane Frolov
Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.
Maria Montessori
When you kill someone by chopping off their head, rolling ’em up in a carpet and burning it, you’d better make sure they’re dead!
Colin Mochrie
Heart of Jesus, burning with love for us, inflame our hearts with love of Thee.
Pope Leo XIII
I don’t think Cheney started off in 2000 with a burning desire to become vice-president. I think the prospect gradually became more appealing, and he goosed the process.
Barton Gellman
In examining witnesses, I learned to ask general questions so as to elicit details with powerful sensory associations: the colors, the sounds, the smells that lodge an image in the mind and put the listener in the burning house.
Sonia Sotomayor
The stories of the first refugees that I ever came across in literature – that lots of people ever came across – were in ‘The Iliad’: the escape of Aeneas with his father on his back, the Trojans, from their burning city, and the defeat of their kingdom and what they had to do to try and find safety.
Vanessa Redgrave
Personally, I am dead against the burning of books.
Augustine Birrell
It is from Italy that we launch through the world this violently upsetting incendiary manifesto of ours. With it, today, we establish Futurism, because we want to free this land from its smelly gangrene of professors, archaeologists, ciceroni and antiquarians.
Filippo Tommaso Marinetti
Desire, burning desire, is basic to achieving anything beyond the ordinary.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
The flag is a symbol of our freedom, and burning it absolutely is one of the least patriotic things that a person could possibly do. I say ‘one of the least’ because I can think of a few things that would actually be less so – and, as a matter of fact, I think that banning flag-burning would absolutely be on that list.
Kat Timpf
Most people wish for riches, but few people provide the definite plan and burning desire which pave the road to wealth.
Napoleon Hill
We’re burning,” Sadie pointed out helpfully. “Noticed!” I yelled back.
Rick Riordan
I try to work the hardest I can without burning myself out.
Justin Kan
We’re teaming up with a major Hollywood studio, and we’re making a movie called ‘Copper.’ It’s set on Mars in the 24th century. By then we’ve got 27 billion people in the world, copper is the world’s most valuable metal because everything runs on electricity, and there’s no more burning of hydrocarbons.
Robert Friedland
This is the worst problem with living history museums. They always leave the best parts out. Like typhus. And opium. And scarlet letters. Shunning. Witch-burning.
Chuck Palahniuk
In each fire there is a spirit; Each one is wrapped in what is burning him.
Dante Alighieri
We’ve got a wood-burning pizza oven in the garden – a luxury, I know, but it’s one of the best investments I’ve ever made.
Gwyneth Paltrow
The two sensibilities, the visual and the verbal, have always been linked for me – in fact, while reading a particularly evocative passage, I will imagine what the photograph I’d take of that scene would look like, even with burning and dodging notes. Maybe everyone does this.
Sally Mann
Delhi becomes a gas chamber every year with the advent of winters, mainly due to stubble burning.
Arvind Kejriwal
Thoughts are like burning stars, and ideas, they flood, they stretch the universe.
Criss Jami
I’m trying to keep my own house from burning down. I can’t worry about someone else’s house.
Bill Parcells
For the Infinite has sowed his name in the heavens in burning stars, but on the earth He has sowed his name in tender flowers.
Jean Paul
I know a few things to be true. I do not know where I am going, where I have come from is disappearing, I am unwelcome and my beauty is not beauty here. My body is burning with the shame of not belonging, my body is longing.
Warsan Shire
You believe in a book that has talking animals, wizards, witches, demons, sticks turning into snakes, burning bushes, food falling from the sky, people walking on water, and all sorts of magical, absurd and primitive stories, and you say that we are the ones that need help?
Mark Twain
The way is open, comrades, free as Space
Alone is free. The only gold is love,
A coin that we have minted from the light
Of others who have cared for us on Earth
And who have deposited in us the power
That nerves our nerves to seize the burning stars.
Philip Jose Farmer
Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin Dance me through the panic ’til I’m gathered safely in Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove Dance me to the end of love
Leonard Cohen
For people who are displaced, you can reconstruct the story of your life from the objects you have access to, but if you don’t have the objects then there are holes in your life. This is why people in Bosnia – if anyone was running back into a burning house it was to salvage photos.
Aleksandar Hemon
People get upset when Baghdad, the “Cradle of Civilization” is burning, or when the Buddhas in Afghanistan are falling. These are real concerns.
Aleksandra Mir
I can only be in the sun for 15 minutes before burning. I have sunscreen on my face every day. If I’m walking on the sunny side of the street, I’ll walk to the shady side. I’m too uncomfortable in the sun.
Julianne Moore
Represent to yourself a dark city all burning and stinking with fire and brimstone. The damned are in the depth of hell within this woful city, where they suffer unspeakable torments in all their senses and members. Consider above all the eternity of their pains, which above all things makes hell intolerable.
Saint Francis de Sales
It’s about labeling. For me feminism is bra-burning lesbianism. It’s very unglamorous. I’d like to see it rebranded. We need to see a celebration of our femininity and softness.
Geri Halliwell
Excessive hype, bankruptcy, cash burning like autumn leaves – such is the stuff of short-selling.
Gary Weiss
You don’t know. When I’m out there at night I feel close to my own body, I can feel my blood moving, my skin and fingernails, everything, it’s like I’m full of electricity and I’m glowing in the dark – I’m on fire almost – I’m burning away into nothing – but it doesn’t matter because I know exactly who I am.
Tim O’Brien
Self-development is the only thing that keeps a person from burning out. We all have many needs – the need for certainty, the need for variety, the need for significance, and the need for connection. But, ultimately, we must grow, and we must contribute in a meaningful way in order to feel fulfilled.
Tony Robbins
It was also important for me to have a burning desire to achieve something worthwhile on that instrument, and I devoted many many many hours with little or no compensation to perfecting whatever I could, because I loved it so much.
Billy Sheehan
One of the things that will keep The Front Page burning bright as long as newspapers are alive is the myth that newspapermen are breezy and raffish. What other play has for so long fed the self-image of journalists?
Jay Carr
Why should a blacksmith put his hands in the fire if he has tongs?
Alexander Theroux
The most serious problem facing humankind is climate change. All of these people breathing and burning our atmosphere has led to an extraordinarily dangerous situation. I hope next generation will emerge and produce technology, regulations, and a worldview that enable as many of us as possible to live happy healthy lives.
Bill Nye
Coal ash, the hazardous byproduct of burning coal to produce power, is a particularly insidious legacy of the nation’s dependence on coal.
Tatiana Schlossberg
If a house is burning, and bucket of water is thrown on the blaze and doesn’t extinguish the fire, this doesn’t mean that water won’t put out fire. It means we need more water. And so with nonviolence.
Dorothy Cotton
World leaders need to realize that the cost of transforming the global energy system is far less than coping with the consequences of burning the planet’s remaining fossil fuels.
Johan Rockstrom
The treatment of the Germans by the Allies was at least as bad as the shooting of those Jews. The bombing of cities with men, women, and children burning with phosphorus – these things were all done by the Allies.
Otto Ohlendorf
One of my earliest memories is walking up a muddy road into the mountains. It was raining. Behind me, my village was burning. When there was school, it was under a tree. Then the United Nations came. They fed me, my family, my community.
Ban Ki-moon
Give of thy love, nor wait to know the worth
Of what thou lovest; and ask no returning.
And wheresoe’er thy pathway leads on earth,
There thou shalt find the lamp of love-light burning.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Bring me my bow of burning gold: Bring me my arrows of desire: Bring me my spear: O clouds, unfold! Bring me my chariot of fire.
William Blake
Everywhere he touches is fire. My whole body is burning up, the two of us becoming twin points of the same bright white flame.
Lauren Oliver
It was a broiling afternoon of mid-August in Brinoe and everybody who was anybody had long ago quit its burning pavements and chilly palaces for the mountains or the sea.
Louis Bromfield
The idea that human beings have changed and are changing the basic climate system of the Earth through their industrial activities and burning of fossil fuels – the essence of the Greens’ theory of global warming – has about as much basis in science as Marxism and Freudianism.
Paul Johnson
It seems the EPA has worked hard to devise new regulations that are designed to eliminate coal mining, coal burning, usage of coal.
Hal Rogers
No one can pretend to say that a fish is ever killed by heat, for many kinds of fish, in the middle of summer, and in the burning heat of the sun, do either play, as it were, on the surface of the water, or hide themselves under the leaves, weeds, or other substances at the bottom.
Antonie van Leeuwenhoek
I don’t think there’s anything to be admired in lying, cheating or philandering. But there might be something to be admired in not burning people at the stake because they have those weaknesses.
Warren Beatty
The Rock had the amazing athletic abilities that few people are gifted with, but he also had the burning desire to be the best, and none of that can be denied.
Jim Ross
A pine tree standeth lonely In the North on an upland bare; It standeth whitely shrouded With snow, and sleepeth there. It dreameth of a Palm tree Which far in the East alone, In the mournful silence standeth On its ridge of burning stone.
Heinrich Heine
Your kisses lift me higher…like the sweet song of a choir. You light my morning sky, with burning love.
Elvis Presley
Wind has the potential to produce many, many more jobs per kilowatt hour than coal. But the coal industry has tremendous political clout on Capitol Hill because of its alliance with the railroads… and with coal-burning utilities…
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
The man who inspired me most, I think, was Dr. Alfred Blalock, who was professor of surgery at Johns Hopkins. He was a rather simple man with a burning curiosity. It was through his curiosity that he made many real contributions to medical science.
Denton Cooley
As a person, I’ve been in the business since 1969, and I never remember getting an honest count based upon how many records been sold for Burning Spear.
Burning Spear
Death is the mother of beauty, mystical,
Within whose burning bosom we devise
Our earthly mothers waiting, sleeplessly.
Wallace Stevens
It’s too easy to get swept up; doing things because the opportunities are there, not because we’re burning to do them.
Sam Sheppard
Rain which falls upon the sea is useless; so is food for one who is satiated; in vain is a gift for one who is wealthy; and a burning lamp during the daytime is useless.
The flaw is the business plan – digging up and burning way more carbon than physics says we can deal with. So, I suppose it’s some kind of mid-point between writing them nice letters asking them to stop and figuring out a way to take down the entire system- which I don’t have any idea how to do.
Bill McKibben
Rocket Man, burning out his fuse up here alone.
Elton John
Happiness always has an object… Depends on external things. Joy… Has no object. It seizes you for no apparent reason, it’s like the sun, its burning is fueled by its own heart.
Susanna Tamaro
Being a sensitive empath is a beautiful thing as an artist, and it fosters a deep burning curiosity about why we do the things we do.
Alanis Morissette
I make a wonderful cure-all called Four Thieves, just like my mum did. It’s cider vinegar, 36 cloves of garlic and four herbs, representing four looters of plague victims’ homes in 1665 who had their sentences reduced from burning at the stake to hanging for explaining the recipe that kept them from catching the plague.
Paul O’Grady
How does it taste?” Carter wondered. Zia smiled. “Stick out your tongue.” To answer Carter’s question, the tattoo tasted like burning car tires. “Ugh.” I spit a blue gob of “order and harmony” into the fountain.
Rick Riordan
Joy is something you can experience even when life is not pleasurable. Even in the midst of a long run, when your legs are burning, you can still feel joy.
Shawn Achor
What we’re doing pop culturally is like burning the rain forest. The biodiversity of pop culture is really, really in danger.
William Gibson
Clean coal represents a breakthrough in the marketing of coal, but not in the science of burning coal.
Van Jones
No time to grieve for roses when the forests are burning.
Zbigniew Herbert
Life consists of burning up questions.
Antonin Artaud
What makes Burning Man special is the location: a 9-mile circle of gypsum, an ancient dried ocean bed. The ground is like a flat crust with no plants or insects, a perfect outdoor gallery for monumental interactive sculpture and architecture.
Alex Grey
It should be forbidden and severely punished to remove cancer by cutting, burning, cautery, and other fiendish tortures. It is from nature that the disease comes, and from nature comes the cure, not from physicians.
