Then with no fiery throbbing pain.
No cold gradations of decay.
Death broke at once the vital chain.
And freed his soul the nearest way. [ Samuel Johnson ]
A fiery soul, which, working out its way.
Fretted the pygmy-body to decay,
And o'er-inform'd the tenement of clay. [ John Dryden ]
Death rides in triumph, - fell destruction
Lashes his fiery horse, and round about hint
His many thousand ways to let out souls. [ Beaumont and Fletcher ]
The eastern gate, all fiery red,
Opening on Neptune, with fair blessed beams,
Turns into yellow gold his salt-green streams. [ William Shakespeare ]
The grey-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night.
Checkering the eastern clouds with streaks of light;
And flecked darkness like a drunkard reels
From forth day's path, and Titan's fiery wheels. [ William Shakespeare ]
Let fiery hope sustain you in the pursuit of what is good. [ Zoroaster ]
Old age is not so fiery as youth, but when once provoked cannot be appeased. [ Proverb ]
The obstinacy of the indolent and weak is less conquerable than that of the fiery and bold. [ Lavater ]
O, be sick, great greatness, and bid thy ceremony give thee cure! Thinkest thou the fiery fever will go out with titles blown from adulation? [ William Shakespeare ]
Persecuting bigots may be compared to those burning lenses which Lenhenhoeck and others composed from ice; by their chilling apathy they freeze the suppliant; by their fiery zeal they burn the sufferer. [ Colton ]
Love can take what shape he pleases; and when once begun his fiery inroad in the soul, how vain the after knowledge which his presence gives! We weep or rave; but still he lives, and lives master and lord, amidst pride and tears and pain. [ Barry Cornwall ]
It is only the intellect that can be thoroughly and hideously wicked. It can forget everything in the attainment of its ends. The heart recoils; in its retired places some drops of childhood's dew still linger, defying manhood's fiery noon. [ Lowell ]
It is a folly for an eminent man to think of escaping censure, and a weakness to be affected with it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age in the world, have passed through this fiery persecution. There is no defense against reproach but obscurity; it is a kind of concomitant to greatness, as satires and invectives were an essential part of a Roman triumph. [ Addison ]
