Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think of the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere.

And then this moment will have been worthwhile. --Deepak Chopra (in Caring For Other People's Children)
