Years ago, when Ken Stabler was a quarterback
for the Raiders, a newspaperman said,
“Ken, I want to read you something Jack London wrote:
‘I would rather be ashes than dust.Â I would rather that my spark
burn out in a brilliant blaze than be stifled by dry rot.
I would rather be a super meteor, every atom of me a
magnificent glow, than a sleepy, crumbling planet.
For the proper function of man in to live, not exist.
I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them.
I shall use my time.’”
And the reporter then asked Stabler: “What does that mean to you, Kenny?”
Without hesitating, Stabler said: “Throw deep!”
I read that quote in a book called “Advertising Age” by
This quote in my opinion has everything to do
with how you live your life.Â Some people’s aim is to just
get by, while others want to live it to the fullest.
In order to live life to the fullest you have to
be pushing your energy capacity to the limit.
This in turns gives you endless energy reserves.
I’ve always said that if you dont have enough energy
at the end of the day to play the day all over again- something isnt right.
Start living your life like you were meant to.
