The Heart of the Matter

This is the true joy in life....

Read this one aloud. Good medicine for what ails you. Then forward it to any friends of yours who may be complaining about this, that, or the other thing...

"This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; 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."
- George Bernard Shaw


"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man."

"Few people think more than two or three times a year; I have made an international reputation for myself by thinking once or twice a week."

"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will."

"Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh."

"The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time."
