Oh i am a font of knowledge today!!!:)
I thought this may give someone a bit of inspiration.

The following words were written on the tomb of an Anglican Bishop in the crypts of Westminster Abbey.

START WITH YOURSELF.

When I was young and free and my imagination had no limit, I dreamed of changing the world.

As i grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not change, so i shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country.

But it, too, seemed immovable.

As I grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me, but alas, they would have none of it.


And now as I lie on my deathbed , I suddenly realize: If I had only changed myself first , then by example I would have changed my family.

From their inspiration and encouragement, I would have then been able to better my country and, who knows, i may have even changed the world.
