While reading the last few pages of Fahrenheit 451 I started to think about what thumbprints I have left during my brief life so far and where I plan to make them in the future. My family and friends have left numerous thumbprints on me, in addition to those left by authors such as Ben Franklin and Mark Twain.

Although I repeat platitudes as epiphanies, this seems to me the entire reason for living. Prior to this, I had abstract goals. Thumbprints can be a unifying factor. Now the question is how do I make the highest quality and quantity of thumbprints? If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.
