Curiosity endows the people who have it with a generosity in argument and a serenity in their own mode of life which springs from their cheerful willingness to let life take the form it will.
Alistair Cooke

Despair is the damp of hell, as joy is the serenity of heaven.
John Donne

Journey with me to a true commitment to our environment. Journey with me to the serenity of leaving to our children a planet in equilibrium.
Paul Tsongas

We can but try, but I am afraid Paul Tsongas is too optimistic, one generation can't do it.
Thanks Don for the Cook quote, I like it.

I looked up John Donne, and it seems he lived between "hell" and "joy". Very busy fellow.
Another eye opener, Don. Thanks.
