“This is the true joy in life
being used for a purpose recognized by you as a good one.
Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances
complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. . . .
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I love.
I rejoice in life for its own sake.
Life is no brief candle to me;
it is a sort of splendid torch which I've got a hold of for the moment
and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible
before handing it on to future generations.”
~George Bernard Shaw
