Bryon Reese urges that we not give up on our dreams to change the world. Don’t succumb to apathy and pessimism. It’s time to get to work, regardless of the perceived obstacles or the long odds of success.
Resse’s TED talk reminded me of this quote:
I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand,” he tells his children. “It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.
Atticus Finch, in “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
