To truly live, one must exert oneself

"A man who spends his life without exertion, this is not a true man.  It's the hollow image of a man.  He has passed through life, but he hasn't lived it."
-- From a Brazilian poet, Francisco Otaviano (1825-89)

--  十九世纪巴西诗人弗朗西斯科,奥塔比阿诺

My Takeaways:
Must not let our life slip by us without exerting ourselves.
