What Can We Do?

We have to learn to live with our decisions, at least until we make a decision to change. I will attempt to take my time when making decisions. (Sefra Kobrin Pitzele, One More Day, 16 March)

If you see that some aspect of your society is bad, and your want to improve it, there is only one way to do so: you have to improve people. And in order to improve people, you begin with only one thing: you can become better yourself. (Leo Tolstoy, A Calendar of Wisdom, 17 March)

The tragedy of life so often is not that we have no high impulses, but that we so often let them remain impulses and never turn them into actions. (William Barclay, The Letters to the Corinthians, p. 256)
