The thing is, no matter how great your contributions to the world are, how celebrated you might be, one day you will die and life will go on. Whatever great thing it was that you gave to the world will continue to have some meaning, at least for a little while. But eventually it too will fade away into the dusty halls of history, eventually to be swallowed up by the yawning gape of millennia.
So the good news is, at the end of the day the same fate waits for the rock stars, the billionaires, the architects of social change and global visionary’s as it does for the invisible social outcasts and the mentally ill.
Same beginning – same end.
May as well enjoy it while you’re here.
