Great quote from EO Wilson

Hello, I came across a great quote from EO Wilson:

“You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give.”

I like this because I agree with the sentiment- that people have more power than they are often aware of- and each of us has the potential to make a difference. Even the tiniest actions can make a massive difference if enough people take part. This can be difficult to hold on to in the face of repeated bad news story- but I think it’s worth remembering.

Henry
