What is one of the best epitaphs you’ve seen or heard of?
“A life that stood out as a gospel of self-forgetting service. He could have added fortune to fame, but caring for neither, he found happiness and honor in being helpful to the world.”
George Washington Carver lived an amazing life. Born into slavery, he went on to impact the world in incredible ways, especially as a scientist. What a legacy to leave.
Not quite an epitaph, but this is one of the sweetest. If you haven’t read a lot of Tolkien, look up the story of Beren and Luthien and you’l understand why!
