I want to make a difference in the world. So do you. But the clock is winding down. So just what can we do? I ponder this question. I often pray about it. Share it with others. I recently happened across some quotations – on this very topic. Let me share a few with you — to consider.
“We rise by lifting others” – Robert Ingersoll
“No act of kindness – no matter how small – is ever wasted” – Aesop
“One person can make a difference. And everyone should try” – John F. Kennedy
“If you cannot feed a hundred people, feed one” – Mother Teresa
“We can change the world and make it a better place. It is in our hands – to make a difference” — Nelson Mandela
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence” — Martin Luther King
“I have one life and one chance to make it count for something… My faith demands that I do whatever I can, wherever I am, whenever I can, for as long as I can with whatever I have to try to make a difference“ — Jimmy Carter
“There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don’t care who gets the credit” — Ronald Reagan
Let’s make a difference in the world. As Lao Tzu puts it – “the journey of a thousand miles – begins with that first step.” Take a step. . . .
