The Joy of Life:
This is the true joy of life.
The being used for a purpose
recognized by yourself as a mighty one.
The being a force of nature
instead of a feverish and selfish clod of ailments
and grieving senses complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and that as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die.
For the harder I work, the more I live.
I rejoice in life for its own sake.
Life is no brief candle to me.
It is a sort of splendid torch which I
have got to hold up for the moment,
and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on
to future generations.
George Bernard Shaw
