The wonderful Jo Robinson from South Africa has tagged me to publish my 3 favourite quotes, for which I truly thank her because it has made me think carefully about what I want to be identified with.
Here is my first. It’s actually by Margaret Mead but was oft’ quoted on The West Wing:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
― Margaret Mead
The second is something said by Sam Seaborn (played by Rob Lowe) on The West Wing in the episode, Somebody’s Going to Emergency, Somebody’s Going to Jail:
“This country is an idea. And one that’s lit the whole world for two centuries. And treason against that idea is not just a crime against the living. This ground holds the graves of people who have died for it. Who gave what Lincoln called the last full measure of devotion.”
(I get goosebumps every time I think of that. Check it out here.)
The third quote is this:
Never underestimate the power of prayer! — me
