living a life that’s more than just crossing the distance between birth and death…..

amazing photos“There is something that happens when you know that life is finite: a desire for greatness, for whatever fleeting moments of brilliance you can leave in the world after you’re gone. And whether the end of your life is five years away or fifty, the fact that you just don’t know is a great motivator for not waiting to begin that thing that could potentially be your legacy. Whether it’s a work of art, or a scientific breakthrough, a good deed, or a child, leaving something of yourself for others to experience and remember is sometimes the greatest excuse to live a life that’s more than just crossing the distance between birth and death.
