OPTIMISM, PESSIMISM & BURNOUT

"The most common words I hear spoken by environmentalists
anywhere are, 'We're f*cked'. ...People sometimes ask me,
'If things are so bad, why don't you just kill yourself?' The
answer is that life is really, really good. I am a complex
enough being that I can hold in my heart the understanding
that we are really, really f*cked, and at the same time that
life is really, really good. I am full of rage, sorrow, joy,
love, hate, despair, happiness, satisfaction, dissatisfaction,
and a thousand other feelings. We are really f*cked.
Life is still really good." -- from Beyond Hope,
by Derrick Jenson, ORION Magazine, May/June 2006
Accept uncertainty; be "neither certain nor indifferent". -- Jostein Gaarder
"Certainty stops thought. Indifference stops action. Find the middle ground!"
"Most of the important things in the world have been
accomplished by people who have kept on trying
when there seemed to be no hope at all." -- Dale Carnegie
