Here's a picture I took the 3rd of July!

In chaos and confusion, there's always hope.

I let authors speak about it , they 'll explain better than I'll do:

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." Oscar Wilde
"A leader is a dealer in hope" Napoléon Bonaparte

Napoléon had many facets, but something you can't take away from him is that he was a great politician. Think to this quote, when you'll vote on November. Napoleon had get it all, in 7 words

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow" Albert Einstein

In all thing it is better to hope than to despair" Goethe

"Dum spiro, spero = While I breath , I hope" Latin proverb

"In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer." Albert Camus

"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.

It's what sunflowers do." Helen Keller

The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty" Winston Churchill

Hope is a waking dream." Aristotle

"How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world."Shakespeare

"Things never go so well that one should have no fear, and never so ill that one should have no hope." This one is a Turkish proverb dedicated to Müge
You can also pass a nice day watching other skies, as I'll do, connecting to Tom's blog at Welcome to Wiggers World. He gets the adresses.

    I actually have a great amount of admiration for Napoleon...If he had just stopped before that Russian campaign...hmmm. Of course I don't know your history as you do.
