“Someone once asked a poet, “If your house was burning and you could save only one thing, what would you save?” The poet answered, “I would save the fire, for without the fire we are nothing.”
This is one of my favourite quotes. When I am tired, overwhelmed and overworked, I think of this because it reminds me that even at the worst of times, there is a reason for everything if you look at it with a new perspective. Without fire there is no passion, no drive to succeed. The fire fuels me in everything I do in life. Save the fire.
So many people in life want to put that fire out – don’t ever let them.
