Serving Others Quote

~George Bernard Shaw
This is the true joy in life–
that being used for a prupose recognized by yourself as a mighty one.
That being a force of nature,
instead a feverish little 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’s a sort of splendid torch which I’ve got to hold up for the moment
and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
Taken from the book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
