Patience strengthens the spirit, sweetens the temper, stifles anger, extinguishes envy, subdues pride, bridles the tongue. - George Horne
The light extinguishes all the flaming arrows of darkness. - Lailah Gifty Akita
Absence is to love what wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small, it inflames the great. - Roger de Rabutin de Bussy
