Fall glory


"This is the true joy in life, to be used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, to be thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap. To be a force of nature instead of a feverish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am a member of a community and as a member it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can before I die. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch that I want to make burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.” George Bernard Shaw

I will off the computer till the 2nd week of Nov. I will be visiting my new neice so I don't know it I will get to post much. I hope you all have a Lovely Halloween and I will be back with new pics soon.

Thanks to all who stop by and leave a comment or just come for a visit.

That is a very powerful quote. GBS lived it, too. With the writing he left behind, the torch of his life continues to ignite future generations. I know he influenced me.
