      “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.”
      Jack London
