Famous quotes containing the words fire and/or fighting:

    The fire I praise was once perduring flame
    Till it snuffs with our generation out;
    No matter, it’s all one, it’s but a name
    Not as late honeysuckle half so stout....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    The happiest excitement in life is to be convinced that one is fighting for all one is worth on behalf of some clearly seen and deeply felt good, and against some greatly scorned evil.
    Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)
