‘What you do will be insignificant, but it is important that you do it’ (Mahatma Gandhi)**
My interpretation of this quote is that unless you’re famous, everything that everyone does in their life is insignificant, however it is significant to the individual. If I got a new job or went back to uni to get a postgraduate degree it would be insignificant to everyone else in the world but it would be significant to me.
