Thinking a lot lately about responsibility, the reason we do what we do at work, at home… Planning the next few things for the Williamston Theatre, meeting with teachers about next year for my kids, making and debating choices… Hoping they’re the right choices, but knowing that the only way to find out is to move forward!
You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.
When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die.
I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough, we must do.
-Leonardo da da Vinci
How wonderful that no one need wait a single moment to improve the world.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
