There are two flames burning

Posted on

I offered a quotation from one famous politician on being liked yesterday. It was negatively cast. So let's have a positive alternative:

"..You see there are two flames burning in the human heart all the time. The flame of anger against injustice, and the flame of hope you can build a better world. And my job at 83 is going round and fanning both flames...because people need encouragement. Everyone needs encouragement if you're going to do the best you can."

The quotation is from Tony Benn, made in December 2008 when being interviewed by Sir David Frost Show on BBC One.
