The following words were written on the tomb
of an Anglican bishop in the crypts of Westminister Abbey:
When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits,
I dreamed of changing the world.
As I grew older and wiser,
I discovered the world would not change,
so I shortened my sights somewhat
and decided to change only my country.
But it too seemed immovable.
As I grew into my twilight years,
in one last desperate attempt,
I settled for changing only family, those closest to me,
but alas, they would have none of it.
And now as I lay on my deathbed, I suddenly realize:
If I had only changed myself first,
then by example I would have changed my family.
From their inspiration and encouragement,
I would then have been able to better my country
and, who knows, I may have even changed the world.
(I hope this message can contribute to you in somehow)
