John Nichols Quote

Each person leaves a legacy--a single, small piece of herself, which makes richer each individual life and the collective life of humanity as a whole. But do not despair, for despair is a despicable and bourgeois affectation; we must not allow it. As for what happens next, well, as the Cuban poet Regino Pedroso once said, como forjamos el hierro, forjaremos días nuevos: as we hammer out iron, we shall hammer out new days.
