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 devote itself to making you happy.
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live.
I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no “brief candle” to me.
It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly
as possible before handing it on to future generations.
George Bernard Shaw, “Man and Superman”
