THOUGHTS: Life’s Greatest Work? or Life’s Greatest Love?

What would you rather pursue, your life’s greatest work or your life’s greatest love?

As for me, it would be my greatest work. One, you are remembered by your work – you leave a legacy. Einstein isn’t remembered by his love affairs or the person he had the longest relationship with – he is remembered for his genuine intelligence. Your greatest work is a summation of who you are, the things you learned in school, your daily life experiences, the books you’ve read, your greatest ideas, your imagination, creation, the things you believe in and the ideas that you came up with. It shows your understanding of things and how far you can go. How far you’ve climbed up in the ladder of success.

While, yes. Your life’s greatest love can be with you to hold your hand when you’re old and gray. But it can also break you, tear you and leave you.

So, will it be your Michelangelo piece or the Juliet of your life?

One thought on “THOUGHTS: Life’s Greatest Work? or Life’s Greatest Love?

  1. Interesting question! I would rather be remembered for my love than just about anything else, but I want to remembered more for the expressions of that love–works in themselves, if you will–than for a feeling. Or perhaps even that’s not true? Good food for thought, in any case. Hopefully we’ll be remembered for both.
