the function of man is to live

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 function of man is to live, not to exist.

I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.

I shall use my time.

these are great words for today from jack london.
