A Maxim

Gaze into the fire, remembering

All is fire. –Heraclitus

 

Fire is life; life is a flame. Life is fire. Eternal fire.

Here burns a portion of the sun.

Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going?

Non omnis moriar.

In fire is truth. In flammas veritas.

I discovered in my heart, in the middle of winter,

an invisible summer.

Go thou my incense upward from this hearth,

And ask the gods to pardon one clear flame.

             –Edward Abbey, October, 1965
