This is a hardcore quote from Horrace Mann who said this at a college graduation ceremony. Not everyone will agree with it. I suspect everyone has the desire to do something great and leave their mark on this world, but most don’t end up doing anything. And oftentimes it is very hard to change anything. Many will say its pointless, but I believe it is worth trying. You may end up failing, but in striving, you may help many others in other ways. Life is short and we are the ones who get to choose what life means to us. It is important to reflect on your choices to make sure you are working on what is important to you.
