Something to Ponder

“I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze
than it should be stifled by dry rot.

I would rather be a superb meteor,

every atom of me in magnificent glow,

than a sleepy and permanent planet.

The proper function of man is to live,
not to exist.

I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time”

-Jack London (1876 – 1916)
