Quote of the Week

"'All great things have violent beginnings,' [said Jim].

'There aren't any beginnings,' Burton said. 'Nor any
ends. It seems to me that man has engaged in a blind
and fearful struggle out of a past he can't remember,
into a future he can't forsee nor understand. And man
has defeated every obstacle, every enemy except one.
He cannot win over himself.'

-John Steinbeck, 'In Dubious Battle'"
