Everybody owes it to the world to make it a little bit better

Mostly the linked article is about coming to terms with not needing “stuff.” But I liked this quote, too.

“People doing good things on this earth, leaving the world a better place. It doesn’t matter what you do — if you do for cats, fine; if you do for Uganda, fine; if you do for trees,” she says. But “everybody owes it to the world to make it a little bit better.”

– Barbara Roche Fierman, as quoted in the New York Times, being interviewed about her tiny white apartment.
