To 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. If we remember those times where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act. And if we do act, however small, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future. To live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.

If you are up for a new blog then also check out Mike at The Tiniest House of Time. He is a wonderful writer who was also diagnosed as schizophrenic from which he is recovering. I love his conversational style. He has a tendency to draw you in and keep you reading till you've finished his blog.
