Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
- Bruce Lee
Each of us has a fire in our hearts for something. It’s our goal in life to find it and keep it lit.
- Mary Lou Retton (Olympian/gold medalist at 1984 Summer Games)
I am building a fire, and every day I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.
- Mia Hamm (Olympian/gold medalist in women’s soccer)
Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.
- Maya Angelou
Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
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.
- Ann Landers
