  1. From Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout:

    “God, I love young people,” Harmon said. “They get griped about enough. People like to think the younger generation’s job is to steer the world to hell. but it’s never true, is it? They’re hopeful and good–and that’s how it should be.”

    No matter what people’s lives might hold (some of these houses they were passing would have to hold some woeful tribulations, Janie knew), still and all, people were complelled to celebrate because they knew somehow, in their different ways, that life was a thing to celebrate.”
