HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE REMEMBERED?

About a hundred years ago, a man looked at the morning newspaper and to his surprise and horror, read his name in the obituary column. The news papers had reported the death of the wrong person by mistake. His first response was shock. Am I here or there? When he regained his composure, his second thought was to find out what people had said about him. The obituary read, "Dynamite King Dies." And also "He was the merchant of death." This man was the inventor of dynamite and when he read the words "merchant of death," he asked himself a question, "Is this how I am going to be remembered?" He got in touch with his feelings and decided that this was not the way he wanted to be remembered. From that day on, he started working toward peace. His name was Alfred Nobel and he is remembered today by the great Nobel Prize.

Just as Alfred Nobel got in touch with his feelings and redefined his values, we should step back and do the same.

What is your legacy?

How would you like to be remembered?

Will you be spoken well of?

Will you be remembered with love and respect?

Will you be missed?

greed leads to loss should be the moral of the story . In real life also we always think that we should get all the things others have and those famous and precious things in the world. Read the Sad life quotes and and get the answers of your every question.

It is really nice to have this story about Alfred Nobel.But, i am not sure if,this is what happened.I read some other portal where it has mentioned that he started this peace prize not because of the wrong advertisement in the news paper.
Her secretary Bertha Kinsky written a book name "Lay Down Your Arms and became a prominent figure in the peace movement".That influenced Alfred Nobel when he wrote his final will which was to include a Prize for persons or organizations who promoted peace.

Really liked your blog! Thank you for posting this great story. We pay so little attention to how our actions affect the world. If we all worked keeping our mortality in mind, this world would become heaven overnight.

jhayne said...

this is a good story. preferred for everyone.. it tells us to do something, even a very little thing but surely inspiring or shows concern to others that will make those people around us remember us from our good deeds when our presence is still around..

Dear1,
The stories in your blog are just too good. I can help reproducing them for the youths I am leading and instructing them in Nigeria. Some I might even publish in a youth magazine. Hope that will be permitted? How does one subscribe so these may land in one's inbox as they come out?
Thanks
