As We Go Along

"There is a way of living and thinking that I would name negative, another that I would name active.

"The first consists in seeing always what is defective in people and institutions, not so much to remedy them as to dominate them, in always looking back, and in looking for whatever separates and disunites.

"The second consists in joyfully looking life and its responsibilities in the face, in looking for the good in everyone in order to develop and cultivate it, in never despairing of the future, the fruit of our will, and in understanding human faults and miseries, expressing that strong compassion which results in action and no longer allows us to live a useless life.

"Whoever searches for the truth will find God.

"As we go along, let us spread ideas, words, and desires, without looking back to see who gathers them up."

~ Elisabeth Leseur (+1914)
