"Whether working as individuals or institutions, we need to learn to be patient with what we can achieve, and to take limited satisfaction in limited progress. We are all humans: we make mistakes, we grow tired and irritable, we cannot love as widely or as wisely as we feel we ought to. Having tried to improve our situation, and without giving up that effort, we must learn to forgive others and ourselves in comparable degrees."
~ Robert E. Reuman
