Work for our future selves

I am writing a new novel right now for National Novel Writing Month and this quote has been on my mind.

What about you, anything thoughts on this quote?


  1. Totally made me cry, though what I am making is very different the vast future ahead is what motivates me! You are incredible, I can't wait to read the new novel!

  2. Great quote! It's so important to remember. Good luck with your Nano novel!

  3. Good luck with your Nano-ing lovely Jackee!! The quote gives one hope!! Take care

  4. I like the idea of having a quote ...and theme? ... in mind as you work on your novel.

  5. It makes me think of that quote from Gladiator. What we do in life echoes in eternity.

    It's true. Our actions/struggles today are not for today but for tomorrow and all the tomorrows before us.


  6. Good luck with Nano! And I love the quote - how appropriate that it's from Abraham Lincoln.

  7. I think that people take quotes like this to heart in the negative sense more than they do in the positive sense, especially when it comes to politics, but there are so many people out there who want to make the future brighter. Look at what Abraham Lincoln accomplished!

    Happy writing!

  8. hi miss jackee!

    wow! youre doing a new novel. how cool is that! i been thinking about that quote and for me it says if we learn from the hard stuff we deal with today we can be more ready to deal out with stuff tomorrow and for our whole life.
