Husbands are like fires - they go out when unattended.
— Zsa Zsa Gabor
Devotion, like fire, goeth upward.
I like Balotelli: he's even crazier than me. He can score a winner, then set fire to the hotel.
— Zlatan Ibrahimovic
I like fireworks too, but I set them off in gardens or kebab stands. I never set fire to my own house.
— Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Sexual desire may burn like fire, but when you give a thought to when you are ill, then your excitement dies down. Fame and fortune may be sweet as candy, but when you give a thought to when you die, then their flavor is like chewing wax. Therefore, if people are usually concerned about death and illness, this can also dissolve unreal activities and develop longing for the way.
— Zicheng Hong
Every year my mom takes her 5th grade class on an outdoor education trip, and ever since I was born, I came with her. One thing I remember the most was this long, old rickety bridge held by two redwood trees. In order to get to the camp fire, you had to cross it. Each time I went across I made my brother carry me on his shoulders. It freaked me out sooooo much, even a little now when I think about it.
I definitely get my artistry and my vocal talent from my mother and mother's side. She sang in a jazz trio band so growing up my dad would always take me to see her play and she has a beautiful voice. When I was little and started to sing, she supported me and let that fire burn. She always knew what it took as a support system.

New York's the place where you can have a private life. You can do anything, be anything you please. New Yorkers mind their own business. Police cars, ambulances, fire engines - nobody even turns around for them. We go to the movies for excitement.

— Zebulon Pike
Let me realize that my past failures at follow-through are no indication of my future performance. They're just healthy little fires that are gonna warm up my ass

I am full of fire and passion. I am not ready yet for great concentration and passion.
— Zane Grey
I made the flames lick the surface of the painting in such a way that is recorded the spontaneous traces of the fire. But what is it that provokes in me this pursuit of the impression of fire? Why must I search for its traces?
— Yves Klein
Yela represents hunger, life, light, fire, power. Wolf speaks to my fighting spirit. The soul I put in my music.
Name Yellow Wolf comes from life experiences. Yellow is the color of the sun - its power, fire, and hunger. Wolf represents my fierceness and ability to survive.
Anyone who toys with the idea of cutting off bits of the eurozone hoping the rest will survive is playing with fire.
— Yanis Varoufakis
There are few people who will make mistakes with fire after having once been burned.
— Yamamoto Tsunetomo
The sun comes into being each day from little pieces of fire that are collected.
I might not be a psychiatrist, but I am convinced that sex is not as important as we tend to make it. First there is that little feeling, that little red flame, called love. Blow on the flame and make it get bigger like a fire, don't blow it out like a candle.
— Xaviera Hollander
The players fire the coach, and as long as I'm on the same wavelength with them, I can coach as long as I want to.
— Woody Hayes
My eyes has been my camera taking pictures of the world and my songs has been my messages that I tried to scatter across the back sides and along the steps of the fire escapes and on the window sills and through the dark halls.
— Woody Guthrie
One cool judgment is worth a thousand hasty councils. The thing to do is to supply light and not heat. Ay any rate, if it is heat it ought to be white heat and not sputter, because sputtering heat is apt to spread the fire. There ought, if there is any heat at all, to be that warmth of the heart which makes every man thrust aside his own personal feeling, his own personal interest, and take thought of the welfare and benefit of others.
— Woodrow Wilson
When you come into the presence of a leader of men, you know that you have come into the presence of fire - that it is best not uncautiously to touch that man - that there is something that makes it dangerous to cross him.
— Woodrow Wilson
It's my duty to fight those who have chosen to belong to the party of death, those who say they receive their orders from God somewhere and believe they have a duty to set the world on fire to achieve their own salvation.
— Wole Soyinka
Revealing the truth is like lighting a match, it can bring light or it can set your world on fire.
— Wiz Khalifa
Ojibwe prophecy speaks of a time during the seventh fire when our people will have a choice between two paths. The first path is well worn and scorched. The second path is new and green. It is our choice as communities and as individuals how we will proceed.
— Winona LaDuke
it is better to take experience, to suffer, to love, and to remember than to walk unscathed between the fires. I've had most immunities myself - the result of an independent income combined with a personality completely devoid of sexual attractions - the two fires of poverty and passion have therefore never burned me, and I am a lesser person for my safety.
— Winifred Holtby
Brave rifles! Veterans! You have been baptized in fire and blood and have come out steel!
— Winfield Scott
The whitewashing of windows can provide very effective protection against fire resulting from the heat-flash from nuclear explosions.
— William Whitelaw, 1st Viscount Whitelaw
Without enthusiasm, the adventurer could never kindle that fire in his followers which is so necessary to consolidate their mutual interests; for no one can heartily deceive numbers who is not first of all deceived himself.
— William Warburton
Fanaticism is a fire, which heats the mind indeed, but heats without purifying. It stimulates and ferments all the passions; but it rectifies none of them.
— William Warburton

— William Wallace
The roaring street is hung for miles With fierce electric fire.
— William Vaughn Moody
I felt the exultancy of a man just released from slavery and ready to set the universe on fire.
— William Styron
If you take a bale of hay and tie it to the tail of a mule and then strike a match and set the bale of hay on fire, and if you then compare the energy expended shortly thereafter by the mule with the energy expended by yourself in the striking of the match, you will understand the concept of amplification.
— William Shockley
We're all embers from the same fire. Our ember winks out, we're ashes, we go back to the fire. I like that image. There has to be a unifying theory. I think there is a continuity of some kind, that my love for my wife will go on past the death of my body. Nature is perfect.
— William Shatner
I think a proud Southerner is a Southerner who is aware of his or her past, and being proud of one's past does not mean you accept it. It means that you realize that we've come through the fire, and we're headed in another direction.
— William R. Ferris
Prison does strange things to men. Although its purpose is to break the free spirit of a man, in many cases it just adds fuel to the fire that has never been and will never be extinguished.
— William Powell
The heart desires, the hand refrains. The Godhead fires, the soul attains.
— William Morris
As frost, raised to its utmost intensity, produces the sensation of fire, so any good quality, overwrought and pushed to excess, turns into its own contrary.
— William Matthews
I have a need to be all on fire, for I have mountains of ice about me to melt.
— William Lloyd Garrison
