Fire Demon

Famous quotes containing the words fire and/or demon:

    Not till the fire is dying in the grate,
    Look we for any kinship with the stars.
    Oh, wisdom never comes when it is gold,
    And the great price we paid for it full worth:
    We have it only when we are half earth.
    Little avails that coinage to the old!
    George Meredith (1828–1909)

    Not necessity, not desire—no, the love of power is the demon of mankind. Grant them everything, health, food, housing, entertainment—they are and remain unhappy and anxious: for the demon waits and waits, and wants to be satisfied.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
