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."
"The high tide!" King Alfred cried. "The high tide and the turn! As a tide turns on the tall grey seas, See how they waver in the trees, How stray their spears, how knock their knees, How wild their watchfires Burn!

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
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
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.
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
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
These golden matters Of Gyges and his treasuries Are no concern of mine. Jealousy has no power over me, Nor do I envy a god his work, And I do not Burn to rule. Such things have no Fascination for my eyes.
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.
As long as our civilization is essentially one of property, of fences, of exclusiveness, it will be mocked by delusions.Our riches will leave us sick; there will be bitterness in our laughter; and our wine will Burn our mouth.
Chafing in action when his nature yearned to act, conscious of indignitiesreal and imagined,Johnsonwent through three years of slow Burn.Theodore H(arold) White
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?
I love the freedoms we got in this country, I appreciate your freedom to Burn your flag if you want to, but I really appreciate my right to bear arms so I can shoot you if you try to Burn mine.johnny cash
Don't Burn the candle at both ends.
"'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
Bind her, grind her, Burn her with fire, Cast her ashes into the sea, She shall escape, she shall aspire, She shall arise to make men free; She shall arise in a sacred scorn, Lighting the lives that are yet unborn, Spirit supernal, splendour eternal, England!
Popé… ordered in all the pueblos through which he passed that they instantly break up and Burn the images of the holy Christ… and that they Burn the temples, break up the bells, and separate from the wives whom God had given them in marriage and take those whom they desired. They were ordered likewise not to teach the Castilian language in any pueblo…Pedro Naranjo
Old wood best to Burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.
You'll Burn, my friend.
...it's better to Burn out than to fade away.
