How to Make a Difference

  1. “It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important” “You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.” Mahatma Gandhi
  2. “The purpose of life is not to be happy” “It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
  3. “… each of us can work to change a small portion of events ” “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” Robert F. Kennedy
  4. “No work is insignificant.” “All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.” Martin Luther King Jr.
  5. “The purpose of life is to contribute in some way to making things better.” Robert F. Kennedy
  6. “Status quos are made to be broken.” Ray Davis
  7. “I don't want to make money; I want to make a difference” Lady Gaga
  8. “I went to Massachusetts to make a difference” “I didn't go there to begin a political career running time and time again. I made a difference. I put in place the things I wanted to do.” Mitt Romney
  9. • “There's always an opportunity to make a difference” “It's through curiosity and looking at opportunities in new ways that we've always mapped our path at Dell. There's always an opportunity to make a difference.” Michael Dell
  10. “… but to make a difference in people’s lives…” I mean, I enjoy my work as an actor. But to make a difference in people's lives through advocacy and through supporting research - that's the kind of privilege that few people will get, and it's certainly bigger than being on TV every Thursday for half an hour. Michael J. Fox
