Famous quotes containing the words calls and/or fire:

    We realize that we are laggards from the past century, still living in what Marx kindly calls ‘the idiocy of rural life,’ and we know that our rural life is like that of the past, not like that of much of the present.
    —For the State of Vermont, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    Can fire be carried in the bosom without burning one’s clothes? Or can one walk on hot coals without scorching the feet? So is he who sleeps with his neighbor’s wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished.
    Bible: Hebrew, Proverbs 6:27-29.
