Doing good

“He who would do good must do so in minute particulars; the general good is the plea of patriots, politicians and knaves.”

~ attributed to Samuel Butler (source: Watzlawick, 1988)

Also read: Paul Watzlawick

Update: Paul Watzlawick may have uncorrectly attributed this quote to Samuel Butler. I find many sources on the Internet who attribute the quote to poet Willam Blake.
