Making an impression

Some people leave an indelible impression on your life. When they are gone, you cannot help but miss them. And the world is no longer as bright.

Think about how many have lived, and how few are remembered. Even less are revered. Those that are, cannot be forgotten.

Memories fade with the passing years. So, it is important to let our actions speak for us. What is done cannot be undone.

Many are famous in their own time. But the moment passes and they fall into obscurity. Eventually, even the name loses its meaning.

Those who care, tend to be remembered. Years turn simple acts of goodness into qualifications for sainthood. Though the person is gone, their spirit lives on.

We are mortal, so immortality can only come through the impact we have made. Is the world better or worse for your being here? Make it better, and you will be that much harder to forget.


  1. It is about caring, but the symptom of that is that something new and unusual is brought to the table. People who have forgotten merely pandered in the direction of the wind. When was the last time you thought about the wind and it changed your life?

  2. Those who are inspired tend to inspire others. They bring something into the world that heretofore has not been seen. If what you do does not have you in it, then it will fade away...
