For The Love Of Wisdom – George Bernard Shaw – Life

George Bernard Shaw (July 26, 1856 – November 02, 1950)

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. Life is no “brief candle” for 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.
