The demand to be loved is the greatest of all arrogant presumptions.

Hope is always

Sometimes it seems that all the news is bad. Sometimes it seems that the world around you is tumbling hopelessly downhill and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop it.

Yet that is never the case. For the more difficult life becomes, the more motivated everyone becomes to make real, substantial, positive changes.

Nothing is ever as bad as it seems. Because when situations become difficult, people become determined.

And when enough people become determined enough, good and positive and valuable things begin to happen. Hope, which may have previously been nearly impossible to see, begins to spring into action.

When the darkness becomes unbearable, someone will step forward and shine a light. And that light will inspire others, and others, and others.

Hope is always there. The more it is needed, the more powerful and effective it grows.

— Ralph Marston
