I would rather be ashes than dust!Jack London
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 in trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.
I was introduced to Jack London very early in my life. At the age of eleven, I couldn’t even imagine the world he was describing to me. He went on to be the first American author to become very rich from his writing.
