I was invited by a friend to partake in chain email with uplifting passages that help us get through tough times. I wanted to share some of the pieces that have been sent to me.
“The artist, and particularly the poet, is always an anarchist in the best sense of the word. He must heed only the call that arises within him from three strong voices: the voice of death, with all its foreboding, the voice of love and the voice of art.”
― Federico García Lorca
“We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But

if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.”
― Mother Teresa
The first is a quote of “Le Petit Prince” written by a French Writer, St Exupéry
“What makes the desert beautiful,” says the little prince, “is that somewhere it hides a well.”
The second one, is a part of Trotsky’s testament:
“Natasha has just come up to the window from the courtyard and opened it wider so that the air may enter more freely into my room. I can see the bright green strip of grass beneath the wall, and the clear blue sky above the wall, and sunlight everywhere. Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression and violence, and enjoy it to the full.”
Netzahualcoyotl said Nobody needs to say who he/she is since his/her actions will tell.
“Either we have hope within us or we don’t; it is a dimension of the soul, and it’s not essentially dependent on some particular observation of the world or estimate of the situation. Hope is not prognostication. It is an orientation of the spirit, and orientation of the heart; it transcends the world that is immediately experienced, and is anchored somewhere beyond it’s horizons…
Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but, rather, an ability to work for something because it is good, not just because it’s a chance to succeed. The more propitious the situation in which we demonstrate hope, the deeper the hope is. Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.”
– Vaclav Havel
