My Favorite Quotation of All Time!

As much as I admired JFK, his brother, "Bobby", was a true wordsmith.

I have searched for this quote for many, many years after hearing it long ago. 

I found it today - the 50th anniversary of the assassination of JFK.

It is worthy of consideration.
It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. 
Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
 Robert Fitzgerald Kennedy
(Address Day of Affirmation, University of Capetown, June 6, 1966).
