What will your epitaph say?
I've thought about this a lot. You've got just a few words in which to leave a legacy. Just one thought left to tell the world. What would it be? One you made up? A quote from a great poet or playwright? A meme? What will yours say?


I have a personal favorite quote that I find inspiring but I'm not sure it really belongs on a tombstone.

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time
– T. S. Eliot


Maybe Eliot, maybe Nietzche, Frost, etc. I'm not sure.

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect.”

-Mark Twain

I always liked the one on RL Stevenson's grave in Samoa:

Home is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.

But I think for me "WTF?" is more appropriate Tongue

He's right behind you.
