A Drop in the Bucket

Who knew that feeling significant begins with imagining a bucket?

We’re just a drop in the bucket, and that’s meaningless.

But we say, “No, wait a minute. If you have a bucket,

those raindrops fill it up very fast.

Being a drop in the bucket is magnificent.”


It is now obvious that significance is a collective rather than solitary project.

There are all these people all over the world

who are creating this bucket of hope.

And so our drops are incredibly significant.

(Studs Terkel, Hope Dies Last).

Being a drop in the bucket is doable on any day. And it matters that we do. In fact, it is magnificent.
