thoreau: (New Thoreau)
January 12, 1855: Perhaps what most moves us in winter is some reminiscence of far-off summer. How we leap by the side of the open brooks! What beauty in the running brooks! What life! What society! The cold is merely superficial; it is summer still at the core, far, far within. It is in the cawing of the crow, the crowing of the cock, the warmth of the sun on our backs. - The Diary of Henry David Thoreau

"I know that how we treat one another - that's entirely up to us. And I believe that for all our imperfections we are filled of decency and goodness and the forces that divide us are not as strong as the forces that unite us. That's what I believe..."

- President Barack Obama
