Straightening By Fire

“If a man gives way to all his desires, or pandas to them, there will be no struggle, in him there will be no inner struggle in him, no “friction”, no fire.

But if for the sake of definite aim, he struggles with the desires that hinder him – he will then create a fire which will gradually transform his inner world into a single whole.”
