This may have been a topic before....but it could be cool one to share.O.K....Many of us on the board have quotes we use as a sort of stamp of identity....I've always found Pele's "Fire, Fire burning higher...." a good one. What do they mean, are they your own or did you quote them off some historic dude. I've been pondering one for myself but I can't think of any good ones..maybe you lot can help me..... something along the idea of travelling, colour, art and space

ABCDEFG...HIJKLMNOP...QRSTU and V..WXY and Zeeeee.Hey everybody look at me...now I know my ABC!

I'm quite surprised no one has answered this - we all love an opportunity to talk about ourselves.My quote comes from Jim Morrison. I was fanatical about him and The Doors for several of my teenage years.My particular quote actually came from the movie - not sure whether he said it in real life, or whether he even penned it himself.But I like it, cos it sums me up fairly accurately (with regards to firedancing anyway!).------------------"she dances in a ring of fire and throws off the challenge with a shrug"

Hey there Backpacker! Glad you like it. I love referring to the wisdom and humor of others!Anyway, mine comes from the movie "Legend" with Tom Cruise and Mia Sara, an 80's fantasy flick. In one section the goblins have stolen the horn off a unicorn and one of them was playing with it around a fire causing it to flare up and he was chanting and dancing to the particular phrase I chose.It definately reflects my attitude towards fire!

For the Pyromorph website I selected several different fire based quotes to introduce the pages. Over all the Pyromorph quote is "The Spirit Of Fire Is The Spirit Of Change...Let The Fire Change You". We even use the "let the fire change you" part on our t-shirts and such as part of our logo, since that is what pyromorph means anyway.Great question!------------------Pele Higher, higher burning fire...making music like a choir...https://www.pyromorph.com[This message has been edited by Pele (edited 21 August 2001).]

I'm not sure where mine originated. But I heard it once and it's been one of my favorite quotes ever since. There's this sick sense of realism in my quote.------------------"Except for that Mrs. Lincoln, How did you like the play?"Pyromorph - Let the fire change you

FYI: I am not Pele. If you wish to reply to me and use a short version of my name, use: PWB.
