'I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. Life is no “brief candle” for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible, before handing it on to future generations. '
George Bernard Shaw
