Virtue is Making a Difference

“To know that you made a difference, that in this all-too-brief span of years you lifted someone’s spirits, relieved someone’s poverty or loneliness, or brought a moment of grace or justice to the world…these are as close as we get to the meaningfulness of a life, and they are matters of everyday rather than heroic virtue.”
