“Many people die at 25 but aren’t buried until 75.”- Benjamin Franklin
Peter Marshall was right when he said, “the measure of life is not its duration, but it’s donation. Here’s the big question: What will you be remembered for after you are long gone? The man or woman with a fleet of automobiles in their garage or the man/woman who touched lives by their altruism?
“For what is your life? It is even as a vapour that appears for a little while and vanishes away” so says the Holy Bible. Seeing then that all the flashy things life has to offer will be destroyed someday, what manner of people ought we to be in holy living and godliness? (2 Peter 3:11)
As I round off this short piece, I leave you with the words of Henry David Thoreau: “When it’s time to die, let us not discover we have never lived.”
