You can have your wealth, power, fame, sex. We all know they won’t last. As soon as your back is turned, wealth and power will start flirting with the cute blonde at the end of the bar. Fame and sex will be looking deeply into the eyes of that new kid on the block.
Glory on the other hand will be at that very moment getting chiseled into stone, carved into granite, etched into marble – with your name etched alongside it.
Glory contains everything we cherish in the world and most desire out of ourselves: the pursuit of excellence, creativity, courage, making the world a better place.
Glory says (in this order): I did this. I really did this. I really freaking did this.
So go and do it. Write. Embrace glory.
