Kindled Into Fire

“‎And yet I have had the weakness, and have still the weakness, to wish you to know with what a sudden mastery you kindled me, heap of ashes that I am, into fire.” ~~ A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, Chapter Thirteen

This is just a beautiful, evocative sentence -- "...you kindled me, heap of ashes that I am, into fire."  Isn't it wonderful when you have or have had someone in your life who can help to make you more than what you feel you already are?
