“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
How lucky the man, or woman, who manages to find hope in times of despair. How lucky those who believe that light always follow the darkness. Hope can be so fragile, and yet it can be the strongest force that keep us going when all else failed.
