We didn't have any civil rights. It was just a matter of survival, of existing from one day to the next. I remember going to sleep as a girl hearing the Klan ride at night and hearing a lynching and being afraid the house would burn down.
The Prophet said, "No prayer is harder for the hypocrites than the Fajr and the 'Isha' prayers and if they knew the reward for these prayers at their respective times, they would certainly present themselves (in the mosques) even if they had to crawl." The Prophet added, "Certainly I decided to order the Mu'adh-dhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqama and order a man to lead the prayer and then take a fire flame to Burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer along with their houses."
Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should Burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.dylan thomas
Burn, with Athens and with Rome,
A sacred city of the mind.
Let us Burn one from end to end, and pass it over to me my friend. Burn it long, we'll Burn it slow, to light me up before I go.
Double, double toil and trouble, Fire Burn, and cauldron bubble.william shakespeare
Each minute bursts in the burning room,The great globe reels in the solar fire,Spinning the trivial and unique away.(How all things flash! How all things flare!)What am I now that I was then?May memory restore again and againThe smallest color of the smallest day:Time is the school in which we learn,Time is the fire in which we Burn.delmore schwartz
Judaism teaches us to be attached to holiness in time, to attached to sacred events, to learn how to consecrate sanctuaries that emerge from the magnificent stream of year. The Sabbaths are our great cathedrals; and our Holy of Holies is a shrine that neither the Romans nor the Germans were able to Burn.abraham joshua heschel
Purge me, oh Lord, though it be with fire. Burn up the chaff of vanity and self-indulgence, of hasty prejudice, second-hand dogmas husks which do not feed my soul, with which I cannot be content, of which I feel ashamed daily and if there be any grain of wheat in me, any word or thought or power of action which may be of use as seed for my nation after me, gather it, oh Lord, into Thy garner.
For them no more the blazing hearth shall Burn, Or busy housewife ply her evening care: No children run to lisp their sire's return, Or climb upon his knees the envied kiss to share.thomas gray
What could have made her peaceful with a mind That nobleness made simple as a fire, With beauty like a tightened bow, a kind That is not natural in an age like this, Being high and solitary and most stern? Why, what could she have done, being what she is? Was there anotherTroy for her to Burn?
Sibelius is unquestionably a leader in the front rank of symphonic composers. He has got out of the ruts worn by his predecessors far more completely than Brahms got away from Beethoven, or even Richard Strauss from Wagner. If someone would only Burn Finlandia he would come to our young people as an entirely original inventor of a new art form and a new harmony technique.jean sibelius
Don't Burn the candle at both ends.
We're not teaching kids to read and write and think. [...] There's no reason to Burn books if you don't read them.ray bradbury
For them no more the blazing hearth shall Burn, Or busy housewife ply her evening care: No children run to lisp their sire's return, Or climb his knees the envied kiss to share.thomas gray
"'I am going to take this bucket of water and pour it on the flames of hell, and then I am going to use this torch to Burn down the gates of paradise so that people will not love God for want of heaven or fear of hell, but because He is God.'"john green
"If you don't worship me you will Burn forever." I always thought that was ugly.gore vidal
They’ve [entrepreneurs] often sacrificed their personal life and end up Burn outs or with a business that doesn’t scale.
Oh! there is naught in nature bright Whose roses do not shed their light; When morning paints the Orient skies, Her fingers Burn with roseate dyes.
So as you may see in Daniel and his companions, that would rather choose to Burn, and be cast to the lions than they would bow to the idol which Nebuchadnezzar had set up. When this 'slight offense', in the world's account, and a hot fiery furnace stood in competition, that they must either fall into sin, or be cast into the fiery furnace such was their tenderness of the honor and glory of God, and their hatred and indignation against sin, that they would rather Burn than sin!Thomas Brooks
I'll Burn it all down before I let a freak have it!
Love is a flame to Burn out human wills, Love is a flame to set the will on fire, Love is a flame to cheat men into mire.john masefield
