A man who is not on fire is nothing: he is ridiculous, he is two-dimensional. He must be on fire even if he does make a fool of himself. A flame must burn somewhere, otherwise no light shines; there is no warmth, nothing

Carl Jung

Pessimism and optimism are slammed against each other in my records, the tension between them is where it’s all at. It’s what lights the fire

What matters most is how well you walk through the fire.” “If it doesn’t come bursting out of you in spite of everything, don’t do it.

Charles Bukowski

Build a man a fire, and he’ll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.
