"My heart is afraid it will have to suffer," the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky.
"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity."
- --Paulo Coelho,
Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach.

I like Lech Walesa's answer to the question "How did Solidarity start?"(first three via A Mindful Life; last from a comment at Body and Soul)
"By talking loud at the bus stop."
