Well Said.

George Bernard Shaw wrote,

"This is the true joy of life, the being used up for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little cod of ailments and greivances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

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."

Could not agree with you more, George. And while I can be a selfish little cod sometimes, I can also always strive to not be one.

Then if not cod...what is like a selfless, caring and optimistic fish? Really...this is going to plague me now.
