Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.
Going Tell You
There will always be those who feel more comfortable not venturing from the warmth of the hearth, but there are those who prefer to look out the window and wonder what is beyond the horizon.
I alternate between thinking of the planet as home - dear and familiar stone hearth and garden - and as a hard land of exile in which we are all sojourners.

In the presence of love, hearth and quest become one.
What we find in books is like the fire in our hearths. We fetch it from our neighbors, we kindle it at home, we communicate it to others, and it becomes the property of all.
Love is the coup d'état of the hearth against the brain
We remember though all the firelit glow
Of a great hearth's gleam and glare,
And we looked for a space at each happy face
And the love that was written there.
Love fire fireplace
Sun is a hearthstone, a merry-go-round of extinguished hearthstones.
literature quotes poetry
Ayla just didn't seem like a woman who was about to join and establish a new hearth with a man she loved. There was no joy, no excitement. Something was missing. Something called Jondalar.
ayla jondalar love
keep the hearth of your thoughts pure, by so doing you will bring peace and be happy
What is a woman that you forsake her
And the hearth fire and the home acre
To go with that old grey widow-maker?
Not for her the cruel, delicate luxury of choice, the indolent, cat-and-mouse pastimes of the hearth-rug. No Penelope she; she must hunt in the forest.
