Hmmm...

history

I saw this T-shirt in Capetown. What do you think? Does history really depend on those who make it? The dictionary defines history as simply a study of past events. So isn't there just history that has had positive influence and history that has had negative influence? How can we change the world in a positive way? Here are some quotes I found that speak of change.

"Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly." Robert Francis Kennedy

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, It is the only thing that ever has.
” Margaret Mead

"There is nothing wrong with change if it is in the right direction." Winston Churchill

"Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become."

Don't you think we have the power to change the world and make a positive difference? I do!

I am reading Mother Teresa's biography at the moment, and it certainly drives this point home very powerfully.

I think so. I especially like this one,

"Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly." Robert Francis Kennedy

It speaks to me because that is something that I've always feared, and unfortunately the fear of failure has kept me from doing a few things in my life.
