Thought for the day, Thursday 7th April

“I am a living member of the great family of all souls; and I cannot improve or suffer myself, without diffusing good or evil around me through an ever-enlarging sphere. I belong to this family. I am bound to it by vital bonds. I am always exerting influence on it. I can hardly perform an act that is confined in its consequences to myself. Others are affected by what I am and say and do, so a single act of mine may spread and spread in widening circles, through a nation or humanity.”

American Unitarian minister William Ellery Channing (1780 – 1842), born on this day
