An Ax

“…Hope is not like a lottery ticket you can sit on the sofa and clutch, feeling lucky…  Hope is an ax you break down doors with in an emergency; because hope should shove you out the door, because it will take everything you have to steer the future away from endless war, from the annihilation of the earth’s treasures and the grinding down of the poor and marginal.”

— Rebecca Solnit
