The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world, who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by.
— Felix Adler

One may have a blazing hearth in one's soul and yet no one ever came to sit by it. Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on their way.
Vincent Van Gogh blazing quote

Men of genius are often dull and inert in society; as the blazing meteor, when it descends to earth, is only a stone.
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Think how many blameless lives are brightened by the blazing indiscretions of other people.
— Saki [Hector Hugh Munro]

Have We not made the earth as a cradle and the mountains as pegs? And We created you in pairs, and We appointed your sleep for a rest; and We appointed night for a garment, and We appointed day for a livelihood. And We have built above you seven strong ones, and We appointed a blazing lamp and have sent down out of the rain-clouds water cascading that We may bring forth thereby grain and plants, and gardens luxuriant.
— blazing quotation by Qur'an
