“The difference between the man
who just cuts lawns and a real gardener
is in the touching.
The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all;
the gardener will be there a lifetime.”
-– Ray Bradbury
I love biographies and have read hundreds of them of famous people and almost unknown people. It’s good to read about other people’s lives.
But, what I really love are autobiographies.
Sure, as one writes his or her own story, they soften some of the edges, but I don’t care.
What I care about is that the one who lived the life wrote about the life, and that legacy is their truth as they lived it, and I get to be the beneficiary of all their living perspective.
Whatever your legacy, I hope it contains a whole lot of you.
