“ In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. ”
A change is brought about because ordinary people do extraordinary things.
Real change never occurs from the top on down, [but] always from the bottom on up.
What you are seeing now will be gone one day. Change is good if you don't let it hurt you. When it does hurt, the rebellion you feel is meant to show you that you should not have any desires.
No amount of regretting can change the past, and no amount of worrying can change the future.
I find the best way to love someone is not to change them, but instead, help them reveal the greatest version of themselves.
