"It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result."
I need to keep this in mind about my own teaching. I joined this program for a reason, and that reason is to make a difference, plant the seeds for future fruit (or something). I need to remind myself that even if the everyday struggles are tough, those seeds can still be planted and nurtured.
