You are a mist that appears for
a little while and then vanishes.
Fame has a short lifespan …

You only have so many days to live, and from the day of your birth you are drawing down on them. Use them well. Make them count. Decide what is important and refuse to be sidetracked by what isn’t.
Investing your life in what is most important will insure that your influence is long-lasting even if your name recognition is short-lived.
The most important happenings
never make the history books.
