Something to Chew On

"People committed to social change need the pessimism of mind and optimism of will:
'If you look at the science about what is happening on earth and aren’t pessimistic, you don’t understand data. But if you meet the people who are working to restore this earth and the lives of the poor,and you aren’t optimistic, you haven’t got a pulse.'"

- Antonio Gramsci as quoted in the Canadian Association for Food Studies Winter 2012 newsletter
