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

Wheels of Fire, cosmic, rich,full-bodied, honest victories over desperation.

Thomas Merton

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

Bruce Springsteen

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.

Terry Pratchett

  1. Still looking for the live version of “Light My Fire” where Ray slips into “My Favorite Things” during his organ solo.
    If anyone knows of that recorded live version please reply!


  2. Thanks for the brilliant quotes. A small but insightfully focused collection. The Trumph situation has me on fire.  Hopefully,  I carry a worthy inner passion.Sent from my T-Mobile 4G LTE Device
