Memento mori

One day you will be gone.
What defines your legacy,
is not the gadgets you had,
but what impact you left behind.

One day your name will be forgotten.
But your legacy will live on.
Your impact will live on in others,
even if they don’t know your name.

One day your words will be silent.
Your thoughts lost in a different time.
But what you did to others,
still affects the world,
and in some way lives on. – Bjørn Johansen

This is something I found via Bjørn Johansen’s blog www.bjornjohansen.com/memento-mori. I feel it is an excellent viewpoint from which to look at our own lives.
