827 – “The truth is, the end never comes for anything. There is no way to fix this weary world so it will stay and still be right. As long as the world shall last there will be wrongs, and if no man objected and no man rebelled, those wrongs would last forever. The objector and the rebel who raises his voice against what he believes to be the injustice of the present and the wrongs of the past is the one who hunches the world along.”

–Clarence Darrow
