“The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
In honor of the 125th anniversary of JRR Tolkien’s birth (and my younger daughter’s birthday), I’m sharing this apt quote – things may be bad, but the good in people still outweighs the bad. As long as that remains true, there is hope.
