Don't say you don't have enough time.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Time
H. Jackson Brown said it:
"Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein."

While this is clearly true, the idea that I must be their equal in order to contribute is... difficult.
Heck, you can sit on the couch and cause less damage than Mother Teresa did on various fronts. Teach a kid about birth control, and you're way ahead.
Hmmmm, couch sitting v. mother teresa? :)

Trust me, they either didn't have kids or grossly neglecting them!!!! From a 24/7 first time mommy who is finally enjoying a little break!!!
Judith, agreed. Everything is about inclusion. http://ifindkarma.posterous.com/everything-is-about-inclusion
When you try to exclude something from your mind -- trying to NOT think about it -- it never works. In fact, these things happen.
Time is a waste of time.
