Presented to Yvonne Bester by her brother Charlie at Ballito on the 16th July 2009
This is the true joy of life, to be used for a purpose;
Recognized by yourself to be a mighty one.
To be a force of nature, instead of a feverish,
Little clod; Forever complaining, that the world
Won’t devote itself to making you happy.
It is my belief that my life belongs to the community
And that I must do whatever I can to make it happy.
When I die I want to be used up, because
The more I work the more I live.
I love life for its own sake.
To me life is not a flickering candle, but a bright shining
Light, to be held up high and made to shine as brightly
As possible, until I hand it on to the next generation.
Mission statement of George Bernard Shaw
