Deeply Odd - Dean Koontz

This quote was added by lani
The man who stands before a crowd and proclaims his intention to save the seas is convinced that he is superior to the man who merely picks up his own and other people's litter on the beach, when in fact the latter is in some small way sure to make the world a better place, while the former is likely to be a monster of vanity whose crusade will lead to unintended destruction.

I used to have an instinctive dislike of Koontz, simply because it seemed that he was being lauded by the same people who adore Nicholas Sparks. Now that I have actually read some of his work, though, I have been pleasantly surprised.
