The Only Effective Influence

I wonder how often I’ve unconsciously influenced someone, in either a positive or a negative direction–when I wasn’t aware of how I was acting, reacting, speaking, or expressing myself through body language. Today’s Thursday Thought quote made me think about that.

“Example is not the main thing in influencing others.  It is the only thing.”  (Albert Schweitzer)

Thoughtful Thursday: Finding Peace

“Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not, himself, find peace.”   —  Albert Schweitzer, physician/Nobel Laureate.
