"I Hope..."

"I hope that my achievements in life shall be these- 
that I will have fought for what was right and fair, 
that I will have risked for that which mattered, 
that I will have given help to those who were in need, 
and that I will have left the earth a better place for 
what I've done and who I've been."
- C. Hoppe

“I have undertaken a labor, a labor out of love for the world, and to comfort noble hearts: those that I hold dear, and the world to which my heart goes out. Not the common world do I mean, of those who (as I have heard) cannot bear grief and desire but to bathe in bliss. (May God then let them dwell in bliss!) Their world and manner of life my tale does not regard: it's life and mine lie apart. Another world do I hold in mind, which bears together in one heart its bitter sweetness and its dear grief, its heart's delight and its pain of longing, dear life and sorrowful death, dear death and sorrowful life. In this world let me have my world, to be damned with it, or to be saved.”
 - Gottfried Von Strassburg
