I don't want to be forgotten.
The universe is infinite, there are many galaxies and even more planets. Earth is just a tiny planet amongst an infinity of similar planets, it is not even the biggest one. Even in the solar system, the blue planet surely doesn't distinguish itself from being the largest one. So imagine how insignificant earth must be in comparison with every planet of every galaxy there is. Now take a moment and think about how insignificant that makes us, selfish human beings. In all this greatness, we're less than a grain of sand, we're less than dust. All most of us seem to care about is to "seize the day" having the carpe diem which is a latin, and therefore ancient, quote as a motto. Yet, and ironically, this quote didn't disappear with time, which is existence's greatest enemy but went through the epochs and remained ingrained in our memory. A few quotes, ideas, people etc. also did, wether it's because they changed history or because they changed the future with inventions, ideologies to live by etc. Let's focus on the people. What does that make them? Well just bigger grains of sands but also entities, infinite entities. Even though, they are nothing to the universe, at least, they are something in our tiny planet. At least they did not completely cease to exist which might not even mean a lot in a greatest scale since earth itself might stop existing but I don't want to be less than dust. I don't want to be nothing. I want to be one of those people of which the memory remains in this world even after they leave it. -Z
