I will need an epitaph for my book when it is ready to complete. So I've been searching for just the right one. Here are a few contenders and some others that struck my fancy.
"No amount of fire or freshness can challenge what a man will store up in his ghostly heart." The Great Gatsby.
"Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you." Oscar Wilde
"Real riches are the riches possessed inside." B. C. Forbes
"When we set a goal, let's try to enjoy every moment of the trip along the way." (unknown)
"Climb the stairway to the stars one step at a time." (unknown)
"It is more important to know where you are going than to get there quickly." Mabel Newcomer
"Decide what you want, decide what you are willing to exchange for it. Establish your priorities and go to work." H. L. Hunt
And I love this one:
"Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans." (unknown)
"Life is either daring adventure or nothing." Helen Keller
"Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you." Ralph Waldo Emerson
