I'm Back!

'This world demands the qualities of youth, not a time of life, but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination - a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over a life of ease...

...Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance...

...Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change the world which yields most painfully to change...I believe that in this generation those with the courage to enter the conflict will find themselves with companions in every corner of the world.' - Robert F. Kennedy, Day of Affirmation speech, 1966


  1. A very stirring post, indeed! I like the final picture. It's nice to have you back and posting again - it makes for good reading whilst in boring lectures! Good luck with this semester - see you on the other side! xx

  2. You have a very sweet blog. And that last photo & quote are great.
