People say, what is the sense of our small effort? They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time. A pebble cast into a pond causes ripples that spread in all directions. Each one of our thoughts, words and deeds is like that. No one has a right to sit down and feel hopeless. There is too much work to do. –Dorothy Day
Dorothy Day was a passionate activist who lived her words.
We can all do so much if we take one step at a time, keeping in sight how all our small efforts can lead to better things.
I have tried to imbue the characters in my books, especially in the Goddess Anonymous series, with hope despite obstacles, because I believe without the courage to cast our pebbles into a pond, life becomes meaningless.
How have your small steps led to better things?
