Be Somebody

"If you are not to be forgotten,
As soon as you are dead and rotten,
Either write things worth reading,
Or do things worth writing."


Picked this up from Ben Franklin

A writers' work's worth differs from one reader to another...

We cannot put a value on our work.
Monetary gains does not measure success,
it is a moment of self-satisfaction.
