Quote: What good is one person’s protest?

A reporter interviewing A.J. Muste, who during the Vietnam War stood in front of the White House night after night with a candle, one rainy night asked,
“Mr. Muste, do you really think you are going to change the policies of this country by standing out here alone at night with a candle?
Muste replied,
“Oh, I don’t do it to change the country, I do it so the country won’t change me.”
