Changing the World
When I was young, I set out to change the world.Technorati tag: YC Change
When I grew a little older, I perceived that this was too ambitious so I set out to change my state.
This, too, I realized as I grew older was too ambitious, so I set out to change my town.
When I realized I could not even do this, I tried to change my family.
Now as an old man, I know that I should have started by changing myself.
If I had started with myself, maybe then I would have succeeded in changing my family, the town, or even the state— and who knows, maybe even the world!
