reading is a requisite for a complete and fulfilling life.

Elbert Hubbard Quotes |
The future influences the present just as much as the past.
If you feel that you do not have any power to make positive changes in this
world, I'd have to disagree with you. To change something means that
you have to take an active role and not sit back and expect that
someone more influential will do it. It means, instead, that you understand that for each action you take there is an affect. To influence doesn't mean that you have to be the leader of a country or a major and noteworthy politician or celebrity. You understand that each person is a catalyst for positive change even if that positive effort is directed only to one other person.
