It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet, I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever-approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again.

यह वास्तव में एक आश्चर्य है कि मैंने अपने सभी आदर्शों को नहीं छोड़ा है क्योंकि वे बहुत ही बेतुके और असंभव लगते हैं। फिर भी, मैं उन्हें रखता हूं, क्योंकि सब कुछ के बावजूद मैं अब भी मानता हूं कि लोग वास्तव में दिल के अच्छे हैं। मैं बस भ्रम, दुख और मृत्यु से मिलकर एक नींव पर अपनी आशाओं का निर्माण नहीं कर सकता। मैं देखता हूं कि दुनिया धीरे-धीरे जंगल में बदल रही है, मैं कभी-कभार गड़गड़ाहट सुनता हूं, जो हमें भी नष्ट कर देगा, मैं लाखों लोगों की पीड़ा को महसूस कर सकता हूं और फिर भी, अगर मैं आकाश में देखता हूं, तो मुझे लगता है कि यह सब आएगा ठीक है, यह क्रूरता भी समाप्त हो जाएगी, और यह शांति और शांति फिर से वापस आ जाएगी।
