Forgotten 

Marcus Aurelius liked to point out that Alexander the Great–one of the most passionate and ambitious men who ever lived–was buried in the same ground as his mule driver. 

Eventually, all of us will pass away and slowly be forgotten. We should enjoy this time we have on earth–not be enslaved to emotions that make us miserable and dissatisfied. 

– the Daily Stoic pg 65
