good things come ... part II

"This is the true joy of life; the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, being a force of Nature rather than a feverish selfish little cloud of ailments complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.'
- George Bernard Shaw

"The danger is that you will lead a respectable, decent, nonscandalous, busy, tired, human-powered life. That is unspeakably sad."
- John Ortberg

I feel like I'm in the middle of living a 'George Bernard Shaw' life - and he's right - it's full of joy.
