Words of Encouragement

"A high and solemn responsibility rests upon us here of a Europe striving to be reborn. If we allow ourselves to be rent by pettiness and small disputes, if we fail in clarity of view or courage in action; a priceless occasion may be cast away forever. But if we all pull together and firmly grasp the larger hopes of humanity, then it may be that we shall move into a happier sunlit age, when all the children who are now growing up in this tormented world may find themselves not the victors nor the vanquished in the fleeting triumphs of one country over another, but the heirs of all the treasures of the past and the masters of all the science, the abundance and glories of the future."

-Sir Winston Churchill

(For Scott XXX)
