When I was at college I had the great honor to attend a private reception for Margaret Mead. In fact I got to spend some one on one time with her.
As she had great insight into human society, she said many notable things outside of "A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

If one cannot state a matter clearly enough so that even an intelligent
twelve-year-old can understand it, one should remain within the
cloistered walls of the university and laboratory until one gets a
better grasp of one's subject matter.

Even though the ship may go down, the journey goes on.
You just have to learn not to care about the dust mites under the beds.
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.
