Words of Wisdom #52 & #53

“The body dies, the person disappears, nothing remains alive on the earth, except the memory of the virtue and actions of the deceased”.

-Erwin Rohde

“Be dead but not forgotten is longevity.”

-Tao Te Ching

One of the ways to conquer immortality is to live your life so that your descendants and/or your people will remember you as an example of honourable man or woman. In this way you will become a role model and surely someone will try to live following your footsteps and imitating your deeds. Your name will live on and you’ll have surmounted death!
