Quote by Peter C. Newman
Even if it's absurd to think you can change things, it's even more absurd to believe that it is foolish and unimportant to try.
This quote emphasizes the importance of taking action even when the prospect of bringing about change seems absurd or unlikely. It suggests that it is far more foolish and dismissive to believe that trying to make a difference is a pointless endeavor. It urges individuals to extend their efforts, as even small actions can have a significant impact and contribute to positive outcomes. By highlighting the futility of remaining passive, the quote encourages people to embrace the belief that their attempts, regardless of how unlikely they may appear, can make a meaningful difference.
We have experienced the truth of this prophecy, for England has become the habitation of outsiders and the dominion of foreigners. Today, no Englishman is earl, bishop, or abbott, and newcomers gnaw away at the riches and very innards of England; nor is there any hope for an end of this misery.
In winter, the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity. Summer is more wooing and seductive, more versatile and human, appeals to the affections and the sentiments, and fosters inquiry and the art impulse.
