[PHI 2200] It's better to burn out than to fade away

One of the well-known lines from Plato's Republic is this:
For no light matter is at stake; the question concerns the very manner in which human life is to be lived.
According to Neil Young, "it's better to burn out than to fade away."

Would this be a good way to live one's life?
