“A PERSON WHO WON'T READ HAS NO ADVANTAGE OVER ONE WHO CAN'T READ.”

- MARK TWAIN

"Fire is a metaphor for many impulses, from the fire of anger to being inflamed with amorous infatuation; fire is metaphorically present in every discussion about passions, in the same way as it is always linked metaphorically to life through the color that it shares with blood. Fire as heat governs that maceration of food matter that is digestion and shares with the feeding process the fact that, to stay alive, it must be continually fueled."

- Umberto Eco, Inventing the Enemy: And Other Occasional Writings
