Fossils – the remains of the dead. The skeletons of insects,
animals, and plants and the like, that have been buried for a very long period of
time, making them succumb under pressure and only a few are preserved in the
process. It takes eons and a lot of work for a fossil to form; similarly it is
not easy to find a fossil either. Going by this, they are rare to be found, and
a source of rich information about species and life of previous centuries or
millennia. A paleontologist works with fossils, to make the profession more
familiar, it is what Dr. Ross Geller does in F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
They give wonderful life lessons, they are rare to be
formed, and they leave a trace in the sands of time. A trace that could make
all the difference to the existing knowledge can completely change a thought or
add a different branch to an existing idea. Similarly, whatever we do leaves
traces behind. It is the good ones that stay, get buried and succumb to all the
testing put forth, and only the best emerge out and become useful to the world.
History speaks about such men who left an impact, Gandhiji, Albert Einstein and
many more. It is never late to have an impact.
That's it for F.
