"What would it mean to live in a city whose people were changing each other's despair into hope?
You yourself must change it.
What would it feel like to know your country was changing?
You yourself must change it.
Though your life felt arduous 
new and unmapped and strange what would it mean to stand on the first page of the end of despair?"
From "From Dreams Before Waking" 1983, by Adrienne Rich
