This is the true joy in life, being recognized by yourself as a mighty one, being a force of nature instead of a feverish 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 whole 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 itís own sake; Life is no brief candle to me, it is a sort of splendid torch which Iíve got to hold up for a moment. I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.

--George Bernard Shaw
