One of those little things that I love about my relationship with Derek is that amidst whatever craziness going on in our lives we continue to send each other articles, videos, websites, etc. that the other person would enjoy or find interesting. Just last week Derek sent me the following quote:
“Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something.” – Henry David Thoreau
As he anticipated, I love this quote. Being good is about us as individuals, our personal choices. And that’s an essential first step. But being good for something – that is taking action and making a contribution to something bigger than ourselves.
