A huge thanks to TriMike for sending me this uber-cool t-shirt. Hopefully he likes the shirt I sent him - it's a secret. Shhh.

I would rather be ashes than dust!
I would rather that spark should burn out in a brilliant
blaze than it should be stilled by dry rot. I would
rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in
magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.
I shall not wast my days trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.

- Jack London

I love the London quote, or rather, the quote that is attributed to him (there's controversy surrounding him writing all of it, but who cares). I wrote it on the first page of my first running log when I got back into this sport in 2002. Keep the quotes coming, I like them.

Wow, awesome quote, thanks for posting, hadn't seen that, Jack London rocks.

The quotes are probably the best thing about my blog. Glad you guys like them.

The London poem appears on the back cover of the book "Pre" - the first edition.
