Quote of the Day: Zinn

“An optimist isn’t necessarily a blithe, sappy whistler in the dark. To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. If we remember those times and places where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us energy to act and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.”
~ Howard Zinn

I’ve always liked to believe that expecting the best from the world and those around you truly helps to bring it out in them.
