The foundation of your life...
Did you ever stop to consider the impact of what you do today will have on future generations? The things you do, the things you say, the things you create...what will future generations say about the foundation you have established for them to build upon? Here is what English writer, John Ruskin (1819-1900), had to say about the legacy of what we leave behind:
"When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight, nor for present use alone; let it be for such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See, this our fathers did for us!"
