"I am only one, but I am one.
I cannot do everything, but I can do something.
And because I cannot do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.
What I can do, I should do.
And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do."
Edward Everett Hale
(1822-1909) American author, historian and Unitarian minister
The Book of Good Cheer : A Little Bundle of Cheery Thoughts? (1909) by Edwin Osgood Grover, p. 28

    Years ago, concerning freedom, law and the Constitution, I went to court regularly, I gave seminars, I participated in media excerpts, I spoke to individuals every chance I could, etc. so today, I still run into people that have awaken to their awful situation because, I could do something. Snowdon (among multiples of whistle blowers) is only one.

    Hale was a bias and lazy man, I give no quarter for his witty remarks, though he was anti-slavery and backed the war or northern aggression, only to relieve himself of labor he thought to be above. Considered the Irish to be inferior to himself.
