Weekend Wisdom: Bonfires

This edition of “Weekend Wisdom” was inspired by my neighbors.  They and friends over and had a bonfire last night. I had to shut the windows because of all the ruckus.         😉

May at least one of these quotes speak to you today.


One can enjoy a wood fire worthily only when he warms his thoughts by it as well as his hands and feet. 

Odell Shepard

The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter, and is about as ample at one season as at another.  It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness. 

Henry David Thoreau

Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and fans the bonfire.

François Duc de La Rochefoucauld

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
