Rejuvenation: inspiration

Today's post is simply a quote I liked and wanted to share:

"We find greatest joy, not in getting, but in expressing what we are...Men do not really live for honors or for pay; their gladness is not the taking and holding, but in doing, the striving, the building, the living.

It is a higher joy to teach than to be taught. It is good to get justice, but better to do it; fun to have things but more to make them.

The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself."    --  R. J. Baughan
