The following words were written on the tomb of an Anglican Bishop in the Crypts of Westminister Abbey:
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 my family, those closest to me, but alas, they would have none of it.
And now as I lie on my deathbed, I suddenly realize: If I had only changed my self 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.
