Following Your Own Legend

The glory of the world is transitory, and we should not measure our lives by it, but by the choice we make to follow our personal legend, to believe in our utopias, and to fight for our dreams. ... We are all protagonists of our own lives, and it is often the anonymous heroes who make the deepest mark.

- Paulo Coelho, "The Alchemy of Pilgrimage" from On Being with Krista Tippett
