my word will remain.

Love? Forgiveness? Affection?
All your words were one word:

A Quote by Albert Einstein on life, purpose, journey, interdependence, and service

How strange is the lot of us mortals!  Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it.  But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people - first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies are bound by the ties of sympathy.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
