Leaving a legacy. That seems to be something that many people want to do. Some of them are best conveyed with quotations. I am convinced that the greatest legacy we can leave our children are happy memories: those precious moments so much like pebbles on the beach that are plucked from the white sand and placed in tiny boxes that lay undisturbed on tall shelves until one day they spill out and time repeats itself, with joy and sweet sadness, in the child now an adult. The Choice. All good men and women must take responsibility to create legacies that will take the next generation to a level we could only imagine. A Journey of Importance.
What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others. We stand our best chance of leaving a legacy to those who want to learn, our children, by standing firm. In matters of style, hey, swing with the stream. But in matters of principle, you need to stand like a rock. The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it. Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago. Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
