Yes! The quote is from a movie and hence overstated to make a point. It’s mostly a reminder to not forget those, who will one day come after you. And I think we can remember them without entirely sacrificing ourselves. Think of the quote as more of a romantic way of expressing an idea, rather than taking it literally! Hope that adds some perspective to how I meant it!
