Sidney Poitier // "While collectively you can change things, you can do that only if you firmly believe that you, as an individual can make a difference… I am not suggesting that you devote your life to being a missionary. You are entitled to your share of love and joy and leisure and pure happiness. But within the warm periphery of your life, there should be room for passionate involvement. As the Italian poet Antonio Porchia put it: 'In a full heart there is room for everything, and in an empty heart there is room for nothing.'"
