Jack London

December 18, 2013

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 humans is to live, not to exist.
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.

~ Jack London
