Dear friends, Bruce Lee is a conscious choice for today’s post choice because I’m thrilled to showcase Bruce Lee as I’ve come to know him recently through the eyes of my bedazzled 12-year-old who can’t have enough of his movies. I never knew these facts about him when I was a 12-year-old 🙂
Did you know, for example, that Bruce Lee was a psychology major and he is attributed to some great quotes? Such as this:
The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering.
Bruce Lee died at a very young age of 32 but he is still remembered as the man who revolutionized martial arts. He was bullied as a young boy but later was known for his power and speed, including his one-inch punch. I was just amazed recently when my 12-year-old rediscovered Bruce Lee, revered even today, more than 40 years after his death.
So, Immortality is what I want to dwell upon today. It is what all writers seek, but, in all honesty, I never gave it a thought when I had decided to take up writing and make up fictional worlds.
Immortality is a thought that’s hard to escape, though. We all want to be remembered by our children, grand-children, our own families at least, if not by the whole world.
And, as writers, there is that iota of conscious dwelling upon the possibility of timeless immortality through our work.
Do you think of immortality?
