The following words were found inscribed on the tomb of an Anglican bishop buried in Westminster Abbey:
When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world. 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 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 MYSELF FIRST — then by example I would have changed my family. And from their inspiration and encouragement, I would then have been able to better my country and, who knows, I may have even bettered the world.
