      Hey!

      Thanx mate for correcting me. I also liked this one by Albert Camus.

      Seems like Nietzsche has seen a lot of hard time in his life, think I should read some biography of him. BTW some people will definitely love this quote by Nietzsche and rightly so because he seem to have a point there.

      Hey, UH. Great quotes, my friend. Nietzsche was definitely a cynic! This may well be my favorite:

      In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

      Albert Camus

      BTW, just wanted to let you know that you said "jope" when I think you meant hope in your opening paragraph. Cheers!

      Lovely quotations, and certainly very apt in today's world which seems steeped in hopelessness. Our society would do well to put aside our doom-sayers and whiners and reflect on some of these words.
