A couple of days ago in my philosophy class, my teacher quoted a line from Futurama a quote:"When you do things right, people won"t be sure that you have done anything at all."This is a particularly ambiguous quote that no matter how hard I try, I can not decipher itsTRUE meaning. Any ideas?

This seems to imply that the "right thing" may often fly under the radar. Other people may not notice what you have done because you aren"t seeking attention or congratulations.I don"t think I always agree with this, but it depends on the situation.

Ha I remember that episode! Very funny. Bender made a terrible deity. What I took that quote to mean (from the galaxy God) was that doing small acts of kindness is more effective than doing great, drastic actions. If you try and accomplish huge, world changing things they are engulfed by the public spotlight. You may have many supporters, but more often than not you also have people who disagree (in some way) and from that grows conflict. So what is better to do is perform small acts that are unnoticeable by the mainstream public eye; thus no conflict can arise. I think this goes with numerous Mother Teresa quotes such as "Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love." and "I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples." It"s the little things that matter
