The Life Story Quote of The Week.


Anyone who’s fortunate enough to live to be 50 years old should take some time, even if it’s just a couple of weekends, to sit down and write the story of your life, even if it’s only twenty pages, and even if it’s only for your children and grandchildren.

~ former President Bill Clinton

Clinton’s point that you don’t have to write your life story in epic form is a good one.  Some people become  immobilized by the overwhelming thought that they have to write at least a 200-page masterpiece and so nothing gets written.  The truth is that anything you can put down is better than nothing.

  1. Right about that age, I became compelled to write things down. I suppose the notion of some measure of earthly immortality drives me.

    I have seen a lot as Doc and learned much. I felt the strong need to pass it on.

  2. @Dr. Tom Bibey. Thanks for your comments. I think the other thing about getting older is that you actually have some history to write about. A person in their 20s and 30s is still accumulating life stories.
