Quote of the Day----Goodreads

Everybody talks about wanting to change things and help and fix, but ultimately all you can do is fix yourself. And that's a lot. Because if you can fix yourself, it has a ripple effect.
Rob Reiner
Happy 67th birthday, Rob Reiner! The director of When Harry Met Sally... and The Princess Bride got his start as a writer on The Smothers Brothers.

Many years ago, I read the autobiography of Franco Zeffirelli, in which he also discussed the "ripple effect."  One little action that you do in front of someone else can change the whole chain reaction of the world, whether it be a good word (or bad) or good work (or bad) that will travel around the world in very subtle ways.  So, be mindful of what you say and do.
