Thought For The Month
This is the true story of life;
The being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a might 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 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 it's own sake.
Life is no "brief candle" to me;
it is a sort of splendid torch which I have got 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 (1856-1950)
