    Within every seed is a forest
    Within every fish is a school
    Within every sheep is a flock
    Within every girl is a queen
    Within every boy is a king
    Within every man is a nation

    For within all there is hidden potiental
    potential for overwhelming greatness
    A greatness that eyes have yet seen
    Remaining unseen till it is cultivated
    For no man reaps until after he sows

    Every mortal reaps that which he sows
    In the same manner in which he sows
    For if you sow sparingly so shall you reap
    Therefore if you desire a bountiful harvest
    You ought to sow cheerfully and bountifully

    For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction
    So what you put into life is that which you shall get out
    No man can expect a great return without great investment

    You say you are but one man
    and how much difference can one man make
    But if you, the next man and I, all do our part
    The sum of the parts are greater than the whole

    All it takes is one man's faith and effort to start a movement
    And if by myself I am a movement then together we're revolution

    I dare you to step out and tap into your potential today
    For within every seed is a forest
    For within every fish is a school
    For within every sheep is a flock
    For within every girl is a queen
    For within every boy is a king
    For within every man is a nation
