Seeing influence

Another nice nugget found by Richard Oliver:

Once people see themselves as influencing one another they cannot be merely victims: anyone, however modest, then becomes a person capable of making a difference, minute though it may be, to the shape of reality. New attitudes are not promulgated by law, but spread, almost like an infection, from one person to another. Theodore Zeldin
