 Elizabeth Barrett Browning once said...

Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive, Half wishing they were dead to save the shame. The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow; They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats, And flare up bodily, wings and all.

In Blushes Quotes, by Elizabeth Barrett Browning , Source: Aurora Leigh (bk. II, l. 732)
