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 (1856 - 1950), Man and Superman, Epistle Dedicatory

O Shaw- I wish so many people would read this and think on it! What eloquent words that get right to my gut! Being thoroughly worn out before being thrown on the scrap heap! O MY- so many think that their everyday ilks throw them out, but to be thoroughly worn out! think on just that for a min or two- then rejoice and be happy that we have so much more to give & live through! Humm what do you think! cant wait to see responses.

The water you see is close to where I live.It's on the eastern side of Tampa Bay. Close by is a spa (a bit too expensive) It claims to have healing water from the 2000yr old Espiritu Santo Spring founded by Desoto and was originally thought to be the "Fountain of Youth". The mineral springs are thought to have healing power.
There is a lovely 'walk' where I love to go and walk and think and get my spirit better. Really all I have to do is go out there and look at God's wonderful beauties!

A force of nature. I love that. And so true that ot is not the world's place to serve you, but yours to serve the world and revel in the living of life.

That's a beautiful shot and I love the quote.

Great quote. We should all reflect on that.
