In times of change… a few quotes
“In times of change, when there is a quicksand of fear under people’s reasoning, a sense of continuity with generations gone before can stretch like a lifeline across an alarming present.”
“Just where am I to fit this story into my view of the world?”
“We make what we can of our condition with the means available. We must accept the mixture as we find it – the impurity of it, the tragedy of it, the hope of it.”
