Hopeful Words


Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live thoughtlessly and begins to devote himself to his life with reverence in order to give it true value.
— Albert Schweitzer 





Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet. 

- Albert Einstein


Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. 

- Howard Zinn


Perception:


  If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite.
  For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things throu' narrow chinks of the cavern.
― William Blake



Do Your Best:


"I always remember an epitaph which is in the cemetery at Tombstone, Arizona. It says: 'Here lies Jack Williams. He done his damnedest.' I think that is the greatest epitaph a man can have - When he gives everything that is in him to do the job he has before him. That is all you can ask of him and that is what I have tried to do."

 - Harry S. Truman
