In college, James Dobson’s goal was to become the school’s tennis champion. He felt proud when his trophy was prominently placed in the school’s trophy cabinet. Years later, someone mailed him that trophy. They had found it in a dustbin when the school was renovated. He said, "Given enough time, all your trophies will be trashed by someone else!"


People fail to realise, that over time, all achievements will eventually be surpassed, records will be broken, reputations will fade away, and tributes will be forgotten. After a few generations, no one will know you. A few more generations, and no one will know you even existed.
