At every moment in every personís life there is work to be done, always work to be done, some of it small, some of it Great. The Great Work, in a sense, always has to do with healing the world, changing the world, and, as a necessary predicate to that, understanding the world. You rise every morning aware that you are called to this work. You wonít live to see it finished. But if you canít hear it calling, you arenít listening hard enough. Itís always calling, sometimes in a big voice, sometimes in a quiet voice. --Tony Kushner
