My optimism wears heavy boots and is loud.
– Henry Rollins
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
For myself I am an optimist – it does not seem to be much use to be anything else.
The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.
Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
