BE ASHES NOT DUST

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 proper function of man is to live not to exist

I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them

I shall use my time

JACK LONDON  (1876-1916)
