George Bernard Shaw


“I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as I live it is my privilege – 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 love.  I rejoin 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 I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”
– George Bernard Shaw
