One person that can make a difference

By Suzi Dafnis

30 March 2009 | 1 Comment

Found this quote today from R. Buckminster Fuller. Was actually looking for a different one about making a difference... but this one is great too.

Never forget that you are one of a kind.

Never forget that if there weren't any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn't be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life's challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world.

In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.

Richard Buckminster Fuller

Thanks Suzi. Here's another one:

A bunch of weak people, even in numbers, aren't strong. Get a whole bunch of confused people together and see how much clarity comes out of it. In other words, you just can't add one more confused person to the pot, and expect to get any more clarity… One—standing outside of the confused group—who is clear, is more powerful than a million who are confused.
