Is this the correct quote or has it been modified??? Thank you
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 cloud 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 what 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 its own sake.

Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch, which I’ve got a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handling it on to future generations.

-George Bernard Shaw
