Living in a powder keg and giving off sparks

Some quotes for meditation

  1. "Was that before or after you noticed you were standing in a lake of gasoline?"

  2. "From what I've tasted of desire, I hold with those who favor fire."

  3. "No one respects the flame quite like the fool who's badly burned."

  4. "A tiny spark will remain, and sparks turn into flames."

  5. "You can't start a fire without a spark."

  6. "The closer you get to the fire the more you get burned."

  7. "I fell for you like a child, oh, but the fire went wild."

  8. "I am an acrobat swinging trapezes through circles of flame."

  9. "In Penny Lane there is a fireman with an hourglass."

  10. "Volcanic soil is among the most fertile on Earth."

Damned thing sits there like a cinder most of the time, or at best a warm coal. I blow on the ember just for a little heat and light and dread a deflagration but of all the Earth's creatures, Man most easily forgets his fear of fire and allows his fascination to lead him.
