Pete Seeger:

"I honestly believe that the future is going to be millions of little things saving us. I imagine a big seesaw, and at one end the seesaw is on the ground with a basket half-full of big rocks in it. The other end of the seesaw is up in the air. It's got a basket one-quarter full of sand. And some of us got teaspoons, and we're trying to fill up sand. A lot of people are laughing at us and they say, 'Ah, people like you have been trying to do that for thousands of years, and it's leaking out as fast as you're putting it in.' But we're saying, 'We're getting more people with teaspoons all the time.' And we think, 'One of these years, you'll see that whole seesaw go zooop in the other direction.'
And people will say, 'Gee, how did it happen so suddenly?' Us and all our little teaspoons. Now granted, we've got to keep putting it in, because if you don't keep putting teaspoons in, it will leak out, and the rocks will go back again. Who knows?"


Pete Seeger:

"Realize that little things lead to bigger things. That's what Seeds is all about. And this wonderful parable in the New Testament: the sower scatters seeds. Some seeds fall in the pathway and get stamped on, and they don't grow. Some fall on the rocks, and they don't grow. But some seeds fall on the fallow ground, and they grow and multiply a thousand fold. Who knows where some good little thing that you've done may bring results years later that you never dreamed of?"
