I shall use my time

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.

The above is "said" to be
Jack London's 'Credo'
