“This is the true joy in life: The being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty 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 make 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 go hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handling it on to future generations.”
George Bernard Shaw
BEST of PONDER on THIS
“Hey politician, I don’t believe a word you say, almighty media, who’s truth do you sell today, watchdog of justice, who keeps their eye on you?”
Triumph, from the title cut on the 1979 CD “Just a Game”
