Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owned, or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies, will finally disappear.
So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to do lists, will expire.
The wins and losses that once seemed so important, will fade away.
It won’t matter where you came from, or what side of the tracks you lived on, at the end.
It won’t matter whether you were beautiful, or brilliant.
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.
So what will matter?

What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built;
Not what you got, but what you gave.
What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage, or sacrifice, that enriched, empowered or
encouraged others to emulate your example.

What will matter is not how many people you knew,
But how many will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone.
What will matter is not your memories,
But the memories that live in those who loved you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom, and for what.

It’s not a matter of circumstance, but of choice.
