      DEMO
    • “Idealists dare to have big dreams
      and then act as if they are possible...
      Idealism does not mean that you are
      an idle dreamer. Idle dreamers just
      WISH that things were better.
      Idealists do something to
      MAKE things better.“
      From the Family Virtues Guide
