Seize the moments of happiness, love and be loved!

That is the only reality in the world, all else is folly. It is the one thing we are interested in here.
— Leo Tolstoy

You kindled me, heap of ashes that I am, into fire.

And yet I have had the weakness, and have still the weakness, to wish you to know with what a sudden mastery you kindled me, heap of ashes that I am, into fire.
— Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
