live content with small means; to seek elegance rather
than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to
be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich;
to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with
open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly,
talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word,
to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow
up through the common--this is my symphony.

who does not draw strength from himself and who
is incapable of finding the meaning of his life
within himself will...seek the map to his own orientation
somewhere outside himself--in some ideology, organization,
or society, and then, however active he may appear
to be, he is merely waiting, depending. He waits
to see what others will do, or what roles they will
assign to him, and he depends on them--and if they
don't do anything or if they botch things, he succumbs
to disillusion, despair, and ultimately, resignation.
-- Vaclav Havel

Robert Alan Silverstein
history has been recorded as a succession of wars
and changing empires. But a ray of hope has been
carried forth throughout the ages by dreamers
who have envisioned a more peaceful, just and
sustainable world. The Magna Carta, the US Constitution
and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
were quantum leaps forward in our collective quest
for a better world. We still have far to go, but
we can help create that better world countless
dreamers have imagined, wished for and endeavored
to make come true. Every moment has brought us
to this moment. We are the ones we've been waiting
for to manifest our shared peacetopian dream."

be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly
romantic. It is based on the fact that human history
is a history not only of cruelty, but also of
compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What
we choose to emphasize in this complex history
will determine our lives. If we see only the worst,
it destroys our capacity to do something. If we
remember those times and places -- and there are
so many -- where people have behaved magnificently,
this gives us the energy to act, and at least
the possibility of sending this spinning top of
a world in a different direction. And if we do
act, in however small a way, we don't have to
wait for some grand utopian future. The future
is an infinite succession of presents, and to
live now as we think human beings should live,
in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself
a marvelous victory.
