“…the danger of futility:
the belief there is nothing
one man or one woman can do
against the enormous array
of the world’s ills
– against misery and ignorance,
injustice and violence. Yet many
of the world’s greatest movements,
of thought and action,
have flowed from the work
of a single man [woman]

… Few will have the greatness
to bend history itself, but
each of us can work to change
a small portion of events,
and in the total of all those acts
will be written the history
of this generation…”
