When I was young and free my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world. As I grew older and wiser, I discover 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 in 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 realised: 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 changed the world.
