Power of One

One individual had brought the world to the brink of destruction, but for the mercies of the Master of the Universe, who ordained that “the earth shall stand firm and shall not fall.”

Such is the power of a single human being to do evil.

A thousand times over is the power of each one of us to do good.

From a talk in 1958.
