Changing The World


Life’s too short, and individual resources too limited, for a single being to accomplish everything single-handedly, and in a single lifetime. And so, if there’s a change you wish for the world, consider taking the world into confidence. If the thought behind your thought is powerful enough, it’ll work its way into other people. It’ll ignite them from within. And then, your thought, your idea won’t remain yours alone. It’ll grow beyond you. It’ll grow into, and inside people. The change you wish for, will grow from people to people. And it’ll continue to grow without, and after you.

It is this submission to “undeniable” arguments and facts that damages our spirit. It is this that kills our enthusiasm for games we might play with life. Struggle doesn’t kill us.
