Change It!

Better translation: "I am I and my circumstance; and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself."

«Yo soy yo y mi circunstancia, y si no la salvo a ella, no me salvo yo.» (From Meditations on Quixote, 1914)

We find ourselves in a particular circumstance in order to transform that circumstance, not to leave it unaffected. By not leaving it unaffected, we affect others and their circumstance.
