A Chinese General put it this way :
If the world is to be brought to order, my nation must first be changed. If my nation is to be changed, my home town must be made over. If my home town is to be reordered, my family must first be set right. If my family is to be regenerated, I myself must first be.

I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can doHelen Keller
