"I would only add that when one begins a poem, a hymn, a short story, or even a history, one must be optimistic about its completion and about what it seeks to teach.  If one believes in the power of his own words and in the words of others, one must also hope and believe that the world will be a better place by our having spoken or written those words."  John Hope Franklin
