Grateful to Jonathan Lockwood Huie for being a voice for such positive transformation ever more as he shares this from the leadings lights of our time....may we all remember:
The ultimate test of a man's conscience
may be his willingness to sacrifice something today
for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard.
- Gaylord Nelson
Life is no brief candle to me.
It is a sort of splendid torch
which I have got a hold of for the moment,
and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible
before handing it on to future generations.
- George Bernard Shaw
The full measure of a man is
not to be found in the man himself,
but in the colors and textures that
come alive in others because of him.
- Albert Schweitzer
The hero is one who kindles a great light in the world,
who sets up blazing torches in the dark streets of life for men to see by.
- Felix Adler
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us;
what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
- Albert Pike
Civilization is not a spontaneous generation
with any race or nation known to history,
but the torch to be handed down from race to race from age to age.
- Kelly Millar
I expect to pass through this world but once.
Any good therefore that I can do,
or any kindness that I can show to my fellow-creature,
let me do it now.
Let me not defer or neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again.
- William Penn
