Ripples

Had to add this snippet, from geek god Wil Wheaton’s blog:

Okay, so now that the history lesson is done, something to think about: Socrates inspired a respect for knowledge and understanding in his student Plato, who passed that along to his student Aristotle, who clearly instilled those values into his student, Alexander the Great.

Imagine what the ancient world would have been like, and as a result what our world would be like today, if Alexander the Great, one of the most powerful and successful military conquerors in history, had been taught by someone else.

Everything we do matters. Everything we do ripples.

Whoa.
