The-function-of-man-isWriter Jack London once wrote:

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.

So let me ask you today, are you living, or existing?

Are you burning, or burnt out?

Are you making the most of your days, or are you frittering them away?
