I think the fighter in me loves this quote. They say we all have the 'fight or flight' response to things in our lives. Often we get them mixed up by, fighting when we should have fled or leaving when we should have fought harder. Personally, it's easier for me to fight than to flee... that's good and bad.
What do you want to be remembered for? The violence in your life like Al Capone or the compassion in your life like Mother Teresa. Actions do speak louder than words and you'll be remembered by them.
The worst remembrance scenario for myself is if I was defined by my disease. If that came true, then you really didn't know me at all. A parent's worst scenario would be to be defined by their absence or abusive tendencies.
Every month we do Communion to remember what Christ did for us on the cross. What a wonderful way to be remembered... a life of sacrifice.
