I appreciate the message but this is just not even a little bit true.

I thought this said the human spit on fire... The right version makes much more sense...

Yes. I am going with this. A bit abstract and poetic, but the point is well taken.

Nothing causes more drastic changes in the human condition than the collective human spirit when it is ignited by a common cause. Every revolution, every successful peace movement, every major change on social issues was brought about not by complacency but by a burning desire for a change.

Oh and I googled it: Ferdinand Foch, during the final months of the First World War he was the supreme commander of Allied forces. He actually said "The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire."

You mean like self-immolation as a form of protest?
