Life is no brief candle…

 

“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 want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

 

George Bernard Shaw
