“It is not wishful thinking that makes me a hopeful woman. Over and over, I have seen, under the most improbable circumstances, that man can remake himself, that he can even remake his world if he cares enough to try.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

From Lara Setrakian’s 2018 New Year’s email.

“If you want anything too badly, you’re in big trouble. – You want to hope for something better than what you have right now, don’t you? Otherwise you wouldn’t be hoping. But then you forget that you have it all right now anyway, and you don’t know it. Why not concentrate on the now instead of hoping for better times in the future? Why not understand the now instead of forgetting it and hoping for the future? Isn’t the future just another trap?”
