A Favorite of Mine…

I’m in a crazy rush today so I turn to a collection of my favorite passages and picked this one to share with you all. I hope it Speaks To You as it Does Me!

From George Benard Shaw; This is the true joy in 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 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 its 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.


Shaw says it all…

Namaste my friends,
