As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world — that is the myth of the “atomic age” — as in being able to remake ourselves.–Mahatma Gandhi

That seems a pessimistic assessment to an idealist like me but maybe that’s all we can really expect is incremental change one person at a time. One of the Mahatma’s other quotes I like is, “be the change you wish to see in the world.” Peace.
