"Almost everyone is obsessed with leaving a mark upon the world.  Bequeathing a legacy. Outlasting death.  We all want to be remembered. I do, too.  That’s what bothers me most, is being another unremembered casualty in the ancient and inglorious war against disease.  I want to leave a mark.  But… The marks humans leave are too often scars.  You build a hideous minimall or start a coup or try to become a rock star and you think, "They’ll remember me now," but (a) they don’t remember you, and (b) all you leave behind are scars.  Your coup becomes a dictatorship. Your minimall becomes a lesion."
