Rather, they (the posterity) will only remember/celebrate you for succeeding in leaving your footprints behind. Thus, strive to leave nothing but your footprints.
I'm writing and publishing not just for the present generation. I'm equally writing and publishing mostly or mainly for the posterity ahead of me (all future generations). As a matter of fact, I have succeeded in writing and publishing my ever-increasing and thought-provoking quotes all over the internet. Consequently, I have equally succeeded in making global impact and positively influencing or changing the thoughts, mindsets, lifestyles, beliefs and lives of millions of people via my thought-provoking quotes. Now, that's why they (the posterity) will surely remember me and celebrate me perpetually as a great man, writer, motivator, inspirer or inspirator. Besides that, the posterity ahead of me will eventually remember me and celebrate me more and more by virtue of my upcoming books. I have seen the future.
Do nothing for prosperity's sake. Rather, do everything you have to do for the sake of the posterity (all future generations ahead).

But interestingly, whatever that is done for posterity's sake is ever impactful and will surely last perpetually. I mean, anything done for the sake of the posterity will surely be remembered and celebrated globally throughout the future generations ahead. Thus, do you have the gift of writing? If yes, then never write and publish for prosperity's sake. Instead, endeavour to write and publish for posterity. Note: anything written and published for posterity's sake will surely be read throughout the future generations ahead. In fact, I (personally) have been writing and publishing for posterity, I'm still writing and publishing for posterity and I will for life write and publish for posterity. Now, that's why the posterity in question will surely and eventually remember me and celebrate me too perpetually as a great man, writer, motivator, inspirator and author by virtue of my thought-provoking quotes, insights, motivations, inspirations and my upcoming books. Oh! yes, my thought-provoking quotes, insights, motivations, inspirations and my upcoming books will surely be read, assimilated, shared, celebrated or criticized throughout the posterity ahead (all future generations) i.e. ad infinitum (endlessly, forever, never endingly). You can bet your bottom dollar. ~Emeasoba George
Immortality is defined as the indefinite continuation of a person's existence even after death. In other words, it is a never-ending existence, regardless of whether or not the body dies. I mean, it is the state of being able to live perpetually. That is to say, an immortal being is anyone who has achieved immortality (enduring fame). And consequently, he or she will never be forgotten. Because, he or she deserves to be remembered and celebrated globally or perpetually. Now listen up, many mortals like you have already achieved immortality through their passions, generosities, magnanimities, sagacities, professions, careers and through their God-given resources, gifts, talents, inventions, discoveries, creativities, originalities, ingenuities, published books, quotes, thoughts, insights, motivations, inspirations and other publications. For instance, all writers or authors right here or out there have already achieved immortality via their published books, quotes, insights, ideas, motivations, inspirations and via other written works or publications. In fact, that's why they (authors or writers) will surely be remembered and celebrated globally or perpetually throughout the posterity ahead (all future generations). Yes! because the writers or authors published books, quotes, insights, ideas, motivations, inspirations and other written works or publications will surely be read, shared, assimilated, adopted, utilized, celebrated or criticized globally and perpetually by the posterity ahead (all future generations ahead). Anyway, that connotes and infers, if you (personally) really long to be remembered or celebrated globally and perpetually after your demise, then you should strive to achieve immortality now that you are still alive either through your passion, profession, career, generosity or through your God-given sagacity, knowledge, gift, talent, resources, thoughts, insights, ideas or stuffs like that. Better still, endeavour to write and publish something worth reading or endeavour to succeed in doing things that are worth writing. All I'm saying is that you too can make a difference and you can equally succeed in leaving a positive legacy behind for the posterity ahead. Believe you me, you can do just that. Note: I (personally) do believe in you. So come on, dare to believe in your own self. ~Emeasoba George
