I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”

Good one, i can identify with that.

Thank you sir. You are very kind.

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets their hour upon the stage
and then is heard no more: it is a tale
told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

-William Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act V

Should that mean that we should not do the something that we can do in this tail told by an idiot?? I believe the significant of my life is to believe that I am one rather than nothing. :)

It is slightly humorous, a cynical view of life, saying that in the end it means nothing. Nothing serious really though!

I understand your point. thank you. I love Mr. Shakespeare, specially in some of his comedies. But to me life is being and being is not nothing. At least love to think that way. :)
