Parents of Our Future

I saw this quotation for the first time today - a profound truth in memorable wording:

We should try to be the parents of our future rather than the offspring of our past.

-Miguel de Unamuno, writer and philosopher (1864-1936)

I would like the quote even better as an imperative:
Don't just be an offspring of your past. Be the parent of your future!
- Unamuno adapted by the author of Daddy's Roses
