12 Sizzling Quotations about Heat    by Jessica Barrah


The heatwave in the UK may be coming to a thunderous end – but we can still enjoy reading about hot weather in literature.







1. “God, it was hot! Forget about frying an egg on the sidewalk; this kind of heat would fry an egg inside the chicken.”
― Rachel Caine


2. “When I feel the heat, I see the light.”
― Everett Dirksen


3.“The heat of a million suns shimmered from the ground and bounced off the triple canopy that loomed above and created undulating waves, that blurred a man’s vision.”
― Joseph M. Puglia


4.“The thing with heat is, no matter how cold you are, no matter how much you need warmth, it always, eventually, becomes too much.”
― Victoria Aveyard, Glass Sword


5.“The month of August had turned into a griddle where the days just lay there and sizzled.”
― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees


6. “I’m so glad I didn’t die on the various occasions I have earnestly wished I might, for I would have missed a lot of lovely weather.”
― Elizabeth von Arnim, The Solitary Summer


7. “The sun, like a golden knife, was steadily paring away the edge of the shade beside the walls.The streets were enclosed between old, whitewashed walls. Everywhere were peace and stillness, as though all the elements were obeying the sacred law of calm and silence imposed by the blazing heat. It seemed as though mystery was everywhere and my lungs hardly dared to inhale the air.”
― Sadegh Hedayat, The Blind Owl


8. "The sun did not rise, it overflowed.”
― Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine


9. “I was used to heat but this place was so dry the trees were bribing the dogs.”
― Irvine Welsh, If You Liked School, You’ll Love Work


10. “On days when it was too hot, they did not leave their room. The dazzling brilliance from outside plastered bars of light between the slats of the blinds. Not a sound in the village. Down below, on the sidewalk, no one. This spreading silence increased the tranquility of things. In the distance, the caulkers’ hammers tamped the hulls, and a heavy breeze brought the smell of tar.”
― Gustave Flaubert, A Simple Heart


11. “What grows best in the heat: fantasy; unreason; lust.”
― Salman Rushdie, Midnight’s Children


12. “Don’t knock the weather. If it didn’t change once in a while, nine out of ten people couldn’t start a conversation.” ― Kim Hubbard
