Day Two- Quotes challenge

"The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give.” 
-Leo Buscaglia

Here’s a story I read which portrays the same message:

One evening, a little boy was walking along the shore. The bursting tide had thrown some fish along the shore. The boy started picking the fish and throwing them back in the sea.

An older man watched this. He said to the boy, “It’s not like you can save all the fish. Why waste time trying?

The boy paused, and said, “Ask that to the fish I just threw back. It mattered to him.”

Nobody can change the world single-handedly, but if everyone does their little bit, the world will be a better place.

Does anyone know the author of the story? Please, let me know if you do.
