Famous quotes containing the word flare:
“Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive,
Half wishing they were dead to save the shame.
The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow;
They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats,
And flare up bodily, wings and all. What then?
Whos sorry for a gnat ... or girl?”
—Elizabeth Barrett Browning (18061861)
“still Im ready to believe perhaps
tremble and flare up there, four blocks away ...”
—Denise Levertov (b. 1923)
