Banksy / Robert W Service

You can change the world, or yourself, if you want to.

It’s been done before.

Just work out where you sit.

Why shouldn’t change travel in the direction you want to see the wind blow?

Great change comes from gestures big and small.

Often, if you can represent a cause with a powerful image you can propel a change and better tell its story.
