One needs fire. Without fire, there will never be anything. This fire is
suffering, intentional suffering, without which it is impossible to create
anything. One must prepare, must know what will make one suffer and when it
is there, make use of it. Suffer by your defects, in your pride, in your
egoism. Remind yourself of the aim.
