Fire—and the hearth—have often been used as metaphors for the soul…
One may have a blazing hearth in one’s soul and yet no one ever came to sit by it.
Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on their way.
Vincent Van Gogh
A life without love in it is like a heap of ashes upon a deserted hearth,
Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other
but in looking outward in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
A house is no home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as the body.
