"You must be the change you wish to see in the world"
Gandhi

I heard this quote a few days ago and decided that this would be the quote that I would live by. There's no use complaining about the problems in the world, we need to do something about it!!

Update: Thank you so much for all the views/faves/comments etc. :D I really appreciate all the lovely comments and the extremely useful critique :D

I see this quote nearly every day when I pass by a teacher's classroom at my school. It really touches my heart, no matter how many times I read it.

I put this at my facebook page but put ur copyright of it, good job again rach p, I love the meaning and quite subtlety of the background which empowers the seriousness of the matter. reminds me of MJ's man in the mirror song. *if you wanna make a world a better place, take a look at yourself then make that change...*
