From "The Young Indiana Jones":

"But... what can you possibly hope to accomplish? This whole continent is festering with disease. What you're doing, is like trying to hold back a tidal wave."

"I see it more as, ehm, gathering pebbles from a beach. I couldn't carry them all, of course, but I can certainly carry a handful each day. And each pebble I save has value. Well, I saved you, nicht wahr?"

"[narrating] Sometimes our light goes out, but it's blown again into flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light. Albert Schweitzer said that. As I stood on the dock, watching Sweitzer and his wife be taken back to Europe as prisoners of war, I reflected on the very deep truth of what Remy had said. He'd been right all along: it was a fools errant."

" [cut back to the present day Indy in the hospital] The hospital was reclaimed by the jungle. It vanished entirely as if it had never existed. But after the war, Schweitser came back to Africa and started again. He built another hospital, bigger and better than the last. He never stopped gathering those pebbles."
