Ripples

“Each time a person stands for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, they send a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”   ― Robert F. Kennedy

“Use a toothbrush and/or toothpaste as the central component of, or inspiration for, what you do today.”  -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin  (Note:  The photos were too beautiful to choose just one! )

The Secret Revealed

Like a drop in the vast ocean, each of us causes ripples as we move through our lives. The effects of whatever we do – insignificant as it may seem – spread out beyond us. We may never know what far-reaching impact even the simplest action might have on our fellow mortals. Thus we need to be conscious, all of the time, of our place in the ocean, of our place in the world, of our place among our fellow creatures.”  ― Margaret Weis, The Seventh Gate
