You must be the change you want to see in the world. No man who continues to add something to the material, intellectual and moral wellbeing of the place in which he lives is left long without proper reward. Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes our deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.
I have a simply philosophy. Fill what is empty. Empty what is full. Scratch where it itches Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination.
In a world where death is the hunter, my friend, there is no time for regrets or doubts. There is only time for decisions. Never bend your head, always hold it high. Look the world straight in the face.
I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness or abilities that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. Do noble things, do not dream them all day long.
