Vandana Shiva

Hope is not like a lottery ticket you can sit on the sofa and clutch… Hope is an ax you break down doors with in an emergency… 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.

Hope just means another world might be possible, not promised… Hope calls for action; action is impossible without hope.”

[Rebecca Solnit]
