#836 The intensity

One hour of life, crowded to the full with glorious action, and filled with noble risks, is worth whole years of those mean observances of paltry decorum.  ~ Walter Scott

Measurement of life should be proportioned rather to the intensity of the experience than to its actual length.  ~ Thomas Hardy

Life is ours to be spent, not to be saved.  ~ D. H. Lawrence

- How active is your life?
- What does Hardy mean by the "intensity of the experience?" 
- How can you devote some of the moments in your life in fruitful and productive ways?
