And It Does Matter. An Honest Man Or Woman Is An Honest Man Or Woman More Because He Or She Is Honest In The Small

And it does matter. An honest man or woman is an honest man or woman more
because he or she is honest in the small, everyday things that "don't matter"
individually, but which make up a well-lived life, than because of some single
great temptation that was passed. A person who is concerned about individual
rights or about individual dignity makes his or her difference not because of
any sweeping great statement or action, but because of the accretion of small,
individually seemingly insignificant acts that spread that dignity and confirm
those rights through every action they take. It matters because every action
you take, and every action I take is an expression of the human spirit.
