Quote of the Moment

Hopelessness is the limit and beginning of a new kind of hope. You have to keep going – not to achieve dreams of beautiful mountaintop forests, but because life is more powerful than death. Hopelessness makes possible a new hope, a faith in the basic tissue of life that is stronger than any disaster. This is how humanity survives. This is the strength that keeps us going.”
–Naseer Hassan, as quoted by Roy Scranton in “Rolling Stone” “Back to Baghdad: Life in the City of Doom”.
