GET UP AND PUT YOUR SHOULDERS TO THE WHEEL HOW LONG IS THIS LIFE FOR ? - DECAY AND DIE
But saying, "I can", won't do. Show me through ACTION what you can do, and then only I shall know that your coming to me is turned to some good account. Get up, and put your shoulders to the wheel—how long is this life for? As you have come into this world, leave some mark behind. Otherwise, where is the difference between you and the trees and stones? They, too, come into existence, DECAY AND DIE. If you like to be born and to die like them, you are at liberty to do so.
