Live

I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather my sparks should burn out in a blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than asleep and permanent as a 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.

Interesting thoughts - having a particularly rough day?

No, actually haveing a good day. I sent my S.I.L this quote this morning as she is considering not joining us for a week in WY exploring Yellostone and Grand Teton not because she can't afford it or can't get the time off but because the layover at one of the airports is too long. Geeesh! C'mon and live!
