Thought for the Day

How do we get back to the struggle over the future? 
I think you have to hope, and hope in this sense is 
not a prize or a gift, but something you earn 
through study, through resisting the ease of despair, 
and through digging tunnels, cutting windows,
opening doors, or finding the people who
do these things. They exist. [. . .]
~ Rebecca Solnit
