“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
“The very existence of libraries affords the best evidence that we may yet have hope for the future of man.”

“Mankind is a great, an immense family…This is proved by what we feel in our hearts at Christmas.”
Pope John XXIII

Antoine de Rivarol
