"Once to every man and nation comes a moment to decide,
In the strife of Truth and Falsehood, for the good or evil side;
Some great cause, God's new Messiah offering each the bloom or
And the choice goes by forever 'twixt that darkness and that
Though the cause of evil prosper, yet 'tis truth alone is strong
Though her portions be the scaffold, and upon the throne be
Yet that scaffold sways the future, and behind the dim unknown
Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own.
And if we will only make the right choice, we will be able to
this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of peace.
If we will make the right choice, we will be able to transform
the jangling discords
of our world into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood"
— James Russell Lowell
Never Give Up Hope from Your Own Personal Strength
and Vision to Do What is Right
Harriet Beecher Stowe
"Never give up, for that is just the place and time that
the tide will turn."
Bible, Matthew 17:20
"I tell you the
truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this
'Move from here to there' and it will move."
St Francis of Assisi
"Start by doing
then do what's possible;
and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
