Quote for Tuesday, October 31, 2006

“This is the true joy in life, the being used up for a
purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; The 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 am of
the opinion that my life belongs to the community and 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 splendid torch which I have got
hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before
handing it on to future generations.”
-George Bernard Shaw
