July 4th: Protect the flame
Ryan Holiday, The 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living
The goodness inside you is like a small flame, and you are its keeper. It's your job, today and everyday, to make sure that it has enough fuel, that it doesn't get obstructed of snuffed out.
Every person has their own version of the flame and is responsible for it, just as you are. If they all fail, the world will be much darker —that is something you don't control. But so long as your flame flickers, there will be some light in the world.
