Legacies are built, not born

During a brief tribute to robotics cameraman Ron Tadano (1954- 2012) at the Tennessee Titans game, the electronic message flashed "Legacies are built, not born" across the stadium. 

Brilliant. Obvious. Yet, original. But for one tweet from Raphael Neal, this remark had never been uttered in Internet text. A few weeks later, a link appeared to an ad summary that may have been the source for this an other recent tweets. Boston Beanery, a West Virginian eatery, uses this as their tag line, and it may have been their ad displayed during the game.

You can generally tell when a quote is original by placing it (and obvious variations, like "Legacy is built, not born") between quotation marks and searching the web.

Regardless of who first put these words together, this quote is worth posting. "Legacies are built, not born" is a reminder of who holds ultimate responsible for the legacy we leave.

No one but us.
