In my research on the subject ‘legacy’ I’ve found many different viewpoints and experiences. Some of them are best conveyed with quotations. Here are a few of my favorites…

Create your legacy by caring for others.

“The past is a pebble in my shoe.” ~ Edgar Allan Poe

Past failures remind us of the importance of the choices we make today.

All good men and women must take responsibility to create legacies that will take the next generation to a level we could only imagine.
~ Jim Rohn

Our children’s future is our responsibility.

Outlive your life! ~ Max Lucado

A simple but profound statement

“If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
~ Benjamin Franklin


The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as a legacy.’ ~ Kalu Kalu
