Do not let your fire go out.....

Elizabeth Kendall

Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa

Artist's Description

Acrylic on x-ray, painted with a palette knife: 24 × 30 cm. Original available

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it’s yours.”
— Ayn Rand (Russian born American Writer and Novelist, 1905-1982)

Be passionate.
When one is passionate there is a deep desire,
a fire inside. And the will to approach life’s circumstances and challenges, in a real way both to yourself and others.
To explore your creative side, express yourself,
in depth and knowledge.
There is no need to be quiet.
There is no need to hold back.
Run free and explore your life.
With perseverance, consistency.
Always listening.
The inner ability to strive on,
to proceed in power, love and a sound mind.
Be willing, be able to strive on with passion,
but let wisdom be your guide,
let understanding build character in you,
appreciate beauty, sincerity, purity.
Keep it close, never exchange it.
For it is like hidden treasure waiting to be discovered.
