Charlie Hess shared the following quote with us in Sunday evening circle.

And his photo album from the memorial is HERE.

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized

by yourself as a mighty one; 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.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and

as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the

more I live. I rejoice in life for it’s own sake. Life is no “brief candle”

to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got 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

Man and Superman
