Jack London Favorite Quotes #2

“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 to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”

Jack London, Jack London’s Tales of Adventure
US adventurer, author, & sailor (1876 – 1916)

Jack London, the US adventurer.  I wonder where the modern adventurers are today.  I’m sure they are out there.  I maintain hope.

The news gravitates to negative.  We wallow in it.  The air is thick with fear, anxiety, suffering.

I look to the heroes.  The everyday people.

They have always been just what we need.

Are you alive?  Or merely existing?  How can you tell?

When you wake up in the morning, do you see colors or is everything grey?  This is a question for your heart.
