"My life belongs to the community. As long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. The harder I work, the more I live. Life is no 'brief candle,' but a splendid torch which I have got hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations." - Modified from George Bernard Shaw
