I am almost positive that I first saw this quote on quotationspage, but I could be mistaken. The quote I'm looking for goes something like this:

"Do not lead your life to be rich, or be remembered. When you're dead your fame and wealth will mean nothing. Lead your life to love those around you. That's all you can do that will have a real impact"

... I'm making that up for the most part. If someone could point me to that exact quote, that would be fantastic. Thanks!

Yeah, sounds familiar, but I'm not finding one. Then the thought occurred to me that you've come up with a quotation all your own! 8O Nicely done.

I just ran across this quote:

Quote:
No matter how rich you become, how famous or powerful, when you die the size of your funeral will still pretty much depend on the weather.
Michael Pritchard


As I was reading it, I was like "Yes! This is it!" Then I got to the end and just chuckled. :)

That's a great quote, thenostromo. Thanks. Almost what I was looking for.

I'm still searching this site and others for the actual quote. Not that the quote matters as much as the meaning behind it, but I'd still like to find it.

Quote:
I am going to concentrate on what's important in life. I'm going to strive everyday to be a kind and generous and loving person. I'm going to keep death right here, so that anytime I even think about getting angry at you or anybody else, I'll see death and I'll remember.

Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider

Another good one. But still not the one I was thinking of.

Also, I am doing a bunch of really complex google searches to try to find the quote. One of the search I tried lead me to this forum thread. Oops!

I'd like to bump this (after 6 months) to see if anyone might be able to provide some new insight.

This is one of the most important quotes to me, and I somehow never wrote it down and I can't find it anywhere!

Any help would be great. Thanks!
