Some believe there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world’s ills –
against misery, against ignorance, or injustice and violence.
Yet many of the world’s great movements, of thought and action,
have flowed from the work of a single man.
A young monk began the Protestant reformation,
a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth,
and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France.
It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New World,
and 32-year-old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal.
‘Give me a place to stand,’ said Archimedes, ‘and I will move the world.’
These men [woman] moved the world, and so can we all.
