Even if a courageous or well-intended word or action seems to go nowhere, it does have a positive effect on those who observe it. They think about the good, the sincerity, the strength of these acts. It encourages them, inspires them, maybe even restores their faith in human nature.
Be heroic in your attitude toward your daily problems, the stepping stones to your higher development
Strengthen that portion of God that was instilled within each of us at the time of our creation
