“Granted that I know little of my real self, still, I am the best evidence for myself.” – Henry M. Stanley.

It’s impossible to have a perfect knowledge
of your real self,


but the little you know is enough proof
that this little is more than the whole
of what others know about you;


you alone could reach the depths of you
to explore and uncover your real strengths
then use them
to build a legacy
that would amuse the living,
instruct the living,
comfort the living and benefit the living

No matter the smallness of your contributions to humanity,
the legacy is worth building
because our gifts not shared when we still have life,
are worth nothing when we die.

“Granted that I know little of my real self, still, I am the best evidence for myself. And though, when I have quitted this world, it will matter nothing to me what people say of me, up to the moment of death we should strive to leave behind us something which can either Comfort, Amuse, Instruct, or Benefit the living; and though I cannot do either, execpt in a small degree, even that little should be given.” – Henry M. Stanley.
