The Fire of Perseverance

Keep the flame alive, no matter how small. Times when the winds are too strong, you may need to protect it from the extinguishing force, surround it with fierce determination. And then keep fanning. It gets tiring. But do not stop fanning the flame. One day, it will grow in size. Soon it will be big enough that keeping it alive when the winds are strong will not be as hard as it used to be. By then you would also have stronger arms to do the fanning. Finally, the flame will grow so big that its heat is felt through the distance, and its strength and passion fling doors and arms open – and in will come all things good, as your labour finally bears its fruit.

So keep it alive.
