In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.
It is with our passions, as it is with fire and water, they are good servants but bad masters.
Fire — quotes and aphorisms
You fall out of your mother's womb, you crawl across open country under fire, and drop into your grave.
