Blossoming on the young Rhine

She listens to him, her expression thoughtful.
'I think there will always be passion for change,' she replies, picking her way carefully over the words as she speaks. 'I've never heard of any land so wonderful that there's nothing to improve in it. But I think that passion can also be a little...overwhelming, perhaps, is the word I'm looking for? Someone looks around and sees things that they think are wrong, that they don't approve of and don't agree with, but they don't know where to begin to change them. They might not be confident enough to act on their own, no matter how strongly they believe in something. If they do something small, it feels like nothing, but doing something big might not work, either. So unless they can find someone who will tell them where and how to begin, they can't bring themselves to do anything.'
The great trouble, as she has learned over time, is that those who are most capable of telling other people where and how to begin often do not have the best intentions to match their capabilities.
'And it's even more difficult if you already feel powerless, too.'
