I’m no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I’m changing the things I cannot accept.

The strategy to interchange just the two little verbs ‘accept’ and ‘change’ while the rest of the sentence stays the same, does make a huge difference. Angela Davis never was willing to sit back and watch the status quo unfold. Instead, she always has been determined to stand up against social and ethnic discrimination, for women’s rights, and she is a supporter of the ‘Occupy’ movement. It is a pretty brave and self-confident statement to declare to change things that are not acceptable – and maybe, it does not always work out but it certainly makes sense to permanently try to.
