Where have you been? Where are you going? And why?
As I take a look deeper, it seems that living to offer life to others through personal sacrifice is the real way to make a name remembered. And in comes the paradox: the only way to live in such a way is to be caught up in service to something greater than yourself, thus not living for your name at all, but someone or something else’s glory. So to aspire to become great is to start out defeated before ever beginning.
