“Be the type of person who leaves a mark, not a scar”

"Be the type of person who leaves a mark, not a scar” is a motivational saying that has been printed on many images. “Im trying to make a mark not a scar” was posted on Twitter on November 20, 2011. The book Finding My Voice: My Journey Through Grief to Grace--Living with the Loss of Don LaFontaine (2012) by Nita Whitaker Lafontaine, about American voice actor Don LaFontaine (1940-2008), said:

“Everyone who reads this book should aspire to do as Don said and did: ‘Make a mark, not a scar.’”

“Be the type of person who leaves a mark, not a scar” was posted on Twitter on June 27, 2013. “Be a person who leaves a mark, not a scar.-Karen Phillips” was posted on Twitter on January 4, 2014. “‘Become the kind of person who leaves a mark not a scar.’ - MarkEvans #NewLife” was posted on Twitter on December 28, 2014. Authorship of this version of the saying is unknown.


Wikipedia: Don LaFontaine
Donald Leroy LaFontaine (August 26, 1940 – September 1, 2008) was an American voice actor who recorded more than 5,000 film trailers and hundreds of thousands of television advertisements, network promotions, and video game trailers.

He became identified with the phrase “In a world...”, used in so many movie trailers that it became a clichΓ©. Widely known in the film industry, the man whose nicknames included “Thunder Throat” and “The Voice of God”, became known to a wider audience through commercials for GEICO insurance and the Mega Millions lottery game.
