London’s Family
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 proper function of man is to live, not exist.
I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them,
I shall use my time."
– Jack London 1876-1916
