L'optimisme, ce n'est pas le refus de voir ce qui ne va pas, c'est le désir de ne pas s'y attarder. // Donne moi le courage de changer les choses que je peux changer, la sérénité d'accepter celles que je ne peux pas changer, et la sagesse de distinguer entre les deux. (Marc Aurèle) // Don't raise your voice; improve your argument. (Desmond Tutu) // Be the change you want to see in the world. (Gandhi)


“As a finishing remark you said that you hoped your grandchildren would come as tourists to Africa and travel on the new high-speed trains we plan to build. What kind of a vision is that?"

“It is my grandchildren who are going to visit your continent and travel on your high-speed trains and visit that exotic ice hotel I’ve heard you have up in northern Sweden."

"It is going to take a long time, we know that. It is going to take lots of wise decisions and large investments. But my 50-year vision is that Africans
will be welcome tourists in Europe and not unwanted refugees.”

(Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, the chairwoman of the African Union, 
to Hans Rosling, in #FactFullness)
