Source: A philosophy of life taken from FireFTP site
“When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world. As I grew older and wiser I discovered the world would not change - So I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country, But it too seemed immovable.
As I grew into my twilight years, In one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, Those closest to me, But alas, they would have none of it.
And now I realize as I lie on my deathbed, If I had only changed myself first, Then by example I might have changed my family, From their inspiration and encouragement I would then have been able to better my country, And who knows, I might have even changed the world.”
From the tombstone of an Anglican bishop in Westminster Abbey
