Any time I have to go to a visitation at a funeral home or my mind clears for more than 10 minutes, I'm reminded that there are several big questions that plague most of us. You know the drill -- what's it all about? what's my purpose? what will people remember about me? Well, the other day, I came across this quote which sort of summed a few things up for me:
Not one of us knows what effect his life produces, and what he gives to others; that is hidden from us and must remain so, though we are often allowed to see some little fraction of it, so that we may not lose courage.
-- Albert Schweitzer
