Famous quotes containing the words living and/or fire:
“The dead might as well try to speak to the living as the old to the young.”
—Willa Cather (18731947)
“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 (18281909)
