Like this line from Gladiator.
"Ultimately, we're all dead men. Sadly, we cannot choose how but, what we can decide is how we meet that end, in order that we are remembered, as men."
Bible stuff below, hidden for those who are apathetic to such things. That line very much reminds me of Ecclesiastes 7:1, "A name is better than good oil, and the day of death than the day of one's being born." Someone may ask why the day of one's death would be better than the day of one's birth? Because at birth a person has no established reputation. Their personal slate is blank, and their life course will result in either a positive or a negative reputation. For those who have established a good name over the years, the day of death is indeed better in that respect than the day of birth.
Another line: "Brothers, what we do in life... echoes in eternity."
This is the same case with Jehovah. Having a good name with Him "in life" based on "what we do" results in "echoes in eternity" at death in remembering our deeds. Fascinating! Refreshing to find metaphor similarities between scripture and film. Thought you might find the comparison interesting.
