Goodbye and thank you Terry Pratchett. For the words that inspire hope, for the gift of laughter and the deeper understanding of life.
“Did you not know that a man is not dead while his name is still spoken?”
His death is a stark reminder that life is fragile, ephemeral, fickle. We will all undoubtedly die one day but what truly matters is our legacy. What are we leaving behind? How will we continue to benefit others once we’re buried 6 feet under. Food for thought.
“No-one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in this world die away”
…May we all produce ripples that last forever.
