Famous quotes containing the words flare up and/or flare:

    still I’m ready to believe perhaps
    some lives
    tremble and flare up there, four blocks away ...
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    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?
    Who’s sorry for a gnat ... or girl?
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)
