Letter "M" » meteors
«Men of genius are often dull and inert in society; as the blazing meteor, when it descends to earth, is only a stone.»
«I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.»
