I ran across a quote this morning. It's from Man and Superman, which for years has been one of my favorite plays. I saw it many years ago in San Diego at a small community theatre (that is no longer there) under this strange mall in suburbia. Weird right? Anyway, I was blown away! Scary smart.
"This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose
recognized by yourself as a mighty one...
the being a force of Nature
instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances
complaining that the world will not deovte itself to makeing you happy."
~George Bernard Shaw
from Man and Superman
