What no one can take away

“Fame due to the achievements of the mind never perishes.” — Propertius

I heard this quote the other day and marked it to save. It’s more often said that everyone gets 15 minutes of fame. Yes, people do seem to come and go from the spotlight, but if you’ve achieved some project that you set out to do, that is something no one can ever take away from you.

It would be nice sometimes for the sudden fame we see from celebrities of reality television shows, but ten years from now would you rather have people remember your dirty laundry everyone in the world got to see or for your art you released to the world?

We need your forward action and your reflections off the world.
