OAB Blog Hop #2
So they have started a new tradition over at Open Adoption Bloggers, a Blog Hop where everyone can answer a quick question and then we all comment on each other’s posts.
This blog hop is asking what our favorite quote is. For me that’s an easy one -
“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
When I was in grad school I had to write a thesis. Each chapter of my thesis had a quote associated with it (I figured having fun and interesting quotes would break up what could be a boring 80 page paper). When searching for quotes, I found this quote and it seemed to sum up why I was writing on the thesis topic that I had chosen (I was writing about sustainability in my industry which at the time was a subject that no one wanted to deal with). Since then I have often thought back to this quote when I begin to doubt myself. It’s not even with large things either, but any time I feel like I’m a lone voice, that I’m speaking about any topic that no one else seems to care about, I remember this and think about the fact that a movement can be started by one person deciding to move.
I encourage you all to go over to the Blog Hop and see what everyone else is saying.
