If you ever wonder if you're doing anybody any good, remember this:

Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light.

-- Dr. Albert Schweitzer

Remember: we won't necessarily see that rekindled inner life in an unmistakable way. It still happens. Truly it does.
