Do the World Some Good: Live Your Own Life

Albert Einstein defines "Insanity" as "doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."  If you want the world to be a different, better place, you yourself have to be a different, better person.  We are insane to think that mimicking the habits and choices of those who have gone before us will change the world.  Listen to your inner voice and act!  You'll be glad you did.

"Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be.  As we do so, we will also find the joy that every human being seeks--we will also find our paths of authentic service in the world."   -Parker J. Palmer
