A Quote by Howard Zinn on hope, action, and present moment

What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives.  If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something.  If we remember those times and places - and there are so many - where people have behaved magnificently, it energizes us to act, and raises at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.  And if we do act, in however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future.  The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.

A Quote by Earon on religion, life, hope, faith, inspiration, prejudice, fear, and ego

So you call yourself religious?  Please don't do that if you're stuck in only one of the many traditions that manifest divine love.  When you've found connection and inspiration from many religions, then you probably know more about divine love, and less about prejudice, ego and fear.
