Quote of the Day, 11/26/06: Legacy

The poem I posted under "creative writing" today makes me think about the things we leave behind. So today's quotes are about legacy.

Sir Philip Sidney
The best legacy I can leave my children is free speech, and the example of using it.

Thomas Scott
A man cannot leave a better legacy to the world than a well-educated family.

What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.

Nancy, you picked some great quotes today! I love the one about educating your children. I hope I'm able to do that.

Franmag, thanks for the note. I liked these today too. It's fun seeing what I can find when I type in the right search word.

My favorite today is the Pericles one. I normally omit the one-named Greeks from my quote roster, but had to include this one.
