How to Face an Uncertain Future

― Jane Hirshfield

“Even in the darkest of times we have the right to expect some illumination, and that such illumination may come less from theories and concepts than from the uncertain, flickering, and often weak light that some people, in their lives and works, will kindle under almost all circumstances and shed over the time-span that was given them on earth.”

Hannah Arendt

― Franklin D. Roosevelt
