My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
Nice quotes and statements on which to reflect. Encouraging.
In my volunteer work, I have seen the importance of not being forgotten and the power of your fact. I think permanence can be found in the heart and immortality in the remembrance. Nothing and no one can take that away from us.
That is so true, although sometimes I feel as if I am just a busy, busy little ant.
I like it. Everyone's journey has value and meaning even if only for that individual.
Very very good NP. I like it. Which is why it is important to focus on a journey as much as the goal.
Ahh because the journey is the goal. It's everything in between that makes any possible goal we have, meaningful.
Wonderful, Marty. Love this one!
I like this one. I think just because everything might eventually vanish doesn't discount our current happiness.
One day there'll be neither the sea nor facts. The ocean of time will wash away everything, even itself.
True and really nice one ! Love,Shaineeapieceofshe.blogspot.com
Beautiful & so true,& if only that fact was all we left behind.Cheers, ic
Very true. In the end, we may be forgotten in time, but we were here, we experienced what we did, and life continues on.
Beautiful aphorism! The sea will wash away our footprints, our physical impressions, but the fact that we made them, that memory, can never be washed away.
NP, commenting after a long time.....sometimes when I stand on the beach, I feel those footprints.....left behind by few of those we can't forget. What a lovely aphorism as always!
I've always liked that saying "gone, but not forgotten," but I think I like yours even more. We leave much more than our repurposed atoms behind, and in that sense, some part of us becomes eternal.
This reminds me of a quote by Benjamin Franklin:"The body of Benjamin Franklin, printer, like the cover of an old book, its contents torn out and stripped of its lettering and gilding, lies here, food for worms. But the work shall not be lost; for it will, as he believed, appear once more in a new and more elegant edition, revised and corrected by the Author."
