Life is no brief candle to me

Life is no brief candle to me.
It is a sort of splendid torch
which I have got a hold of
for the moment,
and I want to make it burn
as brightly as possible
before handing it on
to future generations.

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
Irish literary Critic, Playwright and Essayist
1925 Nobel Prize for Literature
