It is important to give back for future generations

“A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.”— Albert Einstein W hat a profound quote.

To look at our lives as dependent on the labors of others and how important it is to give back. I think of our ancestors and the “labors of love” that were given to make our lives easier. I hope that our generation does the same thing for our children.
