Famous quotes containing the words fire and/or opened:

    And where two raging fires meet together;
    They do consume the thing that feeds their fury.
    Though little fire grows great with little wind,
    Yet extreme gusts will blow out fire and all.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    we do not explain my husband’s insane abuse
    and we do not say why your wild-haired wife has fled
    or that my father opened like a walnut and then was dead.
    Your palms fold over me like knees. Love is the only use.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
