    Margaret mead's quote.

    "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

    I couldn't understand the last part "that ever has". It doesn't make sense to me.

    Please check.

    Re: Margaret mead's quote.

    Dr. Mead meant that nothing other than a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens has ever changed the world. She was an anthropologist, not a geologist, and wrote before it was pretty well established that a single massive asteroid once wiped out most mammalian life on Earth.

    Re: Margaret mead's quote.

    Remember to capitalise both the first name and the surname (family name) of a person. Her name is Margaret Mead.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
