The future is an unknown, but a somewhat predictable unknown. To look to the future we must first look back upon the past. That is where the seeds of the future were planted. I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.

  - Albert Einstein, "Interview, 1930"

 愛因思坦說未來得從過去去尋找,不過他個人從來不想未來會如何如何,因為未來其實來的夠快了。Ain't that clever? Man, it's Einstein; he's supposed to be clever, isn't he? 不,這個道理是給所有為奉獻而奉獻的人,當你只專心把一小塊拼圖放在對的位子上,完成家庭、社區、國家、世界、人類文明第一千萬分之一的圖案時,未來就沒那麼遠了。

The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks ... It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.

  - Samuel Adams

By far the most dangerous foe we have to fight is apathy - indifference from whatever cause, not from a lack of knowledge, but from carelessness, from absorption in other pursuits, from a contempt bred of self satisfaction.

  - William Osler

Sometimes what seems like surrender isn't surrender at all. It's about what's going on in our hearts. About seeing clearly the way life is and accepting it and being true to it, whatever the pain, because the pain of not being true to it is far, far greater.

  - Nicholas Evans, "The Horse Whisperer"

What do I believe? As an American I believe in generosity, in liberty, in the rights of man. These are social and political faiths that are part of me, as they are, I suppose, part of all of us. Such beliefs are easy to express. But part of me too is my relation to all life, my religion. And this is not so easy to talk about. Religious experience is highly intimate and, for me, ready words are not at hand.

  - Adlai Stevenson

Future. That period of time in which our affairs prosper, our friends are true and our happiness is assured.

  - Ambrose Bierce, "The Devil's Dictionary (1881-1906), repr. In Collected Works of Ambrose Bierce, vol. 7 (1911)"

If a great thing can be done, it can be done easily, but this ease is like the ease of a tree blossoming after long years of gathering strength.

  - John Ruskin

Whether sixty or sixteen, there is in every human being's heart the lure of wonder, the unfailing child-like appetite of what's next, and the joy of the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, so long are you young.

  - Samuel Ullman

We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.

  - Woodrow Wilson

Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,

Whether the summer clothe the general earth

With greenness, or the redbreast sit and sing
