without brightening our own. "

Could love you for yourself alone

And not your yellow hair.”

 William Butler Yeats



“Life is no brief candle to me.
 It is a sort of splendid torch
 which I have got a 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
